SAN ANTONIO (BP) – Southern Baptist leaders recognized something when they toured federal government facilities for children who have fled to the United States without their parents – hope.

THE NAME “World Changers” probably brings to mind a bunch of teenagers painting and hammering. After all, World Changers – an initiative of LifeWay Christian Resources – is known for its construction projects.

Central Baptist, Jonesboro, opens new Journey campus

JONESBORO – After meeting for more than three years on the campus of Arkansas State University (ASU), Central Baptist Church’s Journey campus has moved into a new facility on the northeast side of Jonesboro – in one of the most rapidly growing areas in the state of Arkansas.  

A launch event for the new campus was held July 20 with two services. Central Baptist is led by Archie Mason, senior pastor, who also serves as president of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention.
