MALT Regional Gathering

Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas (MALT) Clergy Gathering

Register here

Alliance clergy in the Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas (MALT) region are gathering for rest, play, resource sharing and fellowship. Building a stronger network and circle of friendship among progressive Baptist pastors in the MALT region is essential for clergy who often serve without connection to Alliance colleagues beyond the Annual Gathering. MALT clergy, let’s meet up in Austin!
