This year, SBC students will partner with students from other churches in Lancaster to REACH our community. We will be partnering with our local schools in various ministry projects.
Our main speaker this year is Landon Dowden, lead pastor of The Church at Trace Crossing in Tupelo, Mississippi. With a firm belief that the Gospel is the only hope for aligning our lives with God's Word, Landon is firmly committed to verse by verse exposition of the Bible, because "nothing is better for God's people than God's Word." Some of Landon's hidden talents are humming and beat-boxing simultaneously, rapping part of Psalm 23 in Hebrew, being a national record holder for Jump Rope for Heart, and still being able to remember the “cheat code” to Contra on Nintendo.
Back again this year to lead in worship is Edenfield. Mostly from around Atlanta, Georgia, each one of the band members serve in their local church in various capacities.
This year, SBC is partnering with Covenant Baptist Church for a concert on Friday night by The Afters. With hits such as Light Up the Sky, Lift Me Up, and their most recent hit Live on Forever; students will be encouraged and hear powerful testimony through their music.

Spend a day at JAARS headquarters in Waxhaw, North Carolina! Ride in a helicopter or a five-seat plane. See how people get Internet in the rainforest. Record your voice into the JESUS film. You’ll get an up-close look at Bible translation—and why it relies on practical support like boats, 4WDs, and software. To get more information, please follow this link: https://jaars.org/events/jaars-day. We will leave the church at 8:30am and return by 12:30pm.
