Over 200 members of EBS from around the country will gather at First Baptist church on Panola Avenue to be united, encouraged, inspired and equipped through messages, times of training and fellowship.

Mike Harding, executive director of Explorer’s said, “EBS is 99 percent volunteer led. We have many Bible study classes that meet in communities across the country. Each encourages people in their walk with God through in-depth study. These classes are interdenominational and gather together believers and seekers who want to study the Bible from many churches. Christians in communities united at a host church weekly and are led by wonderful leaders who volunteer their time, money and energy to make the classes happen. This conference is a chance for many of them to connect and get refreshed as the new study year will begin in the fall.”

The conference starts on Thursday for teachers and then opens up to the general public on Friday at noon. The general public is welcome to register and attend the conference. They will enjoy two meals and hear from several keynote speakers, including Batesville’s Marni McKenzie. To register, or to learn more about EBS, visit
