As an association, The Bethel Ministerial Association, Inc. joins together for four organized activities each year. Usually, the second weekend in January, we meet in Indianapolis at Bethel Community Church of Southport for the annual planning session. At this meeting, plans are made for the activities to occur throughout the year, to include both Youth Camps. We meet at the BMA Spring Conference, usually for three or four days in April. This meeting is designed to provide educational enrichment for our pastors and future ministers. We also meet to make further plans for the Youth Camp season. Junior Youth Confrence and Senior Youth Conference occur late June to Early July at the Bethel Church and Conference Center near Dale, Indiana. During these conferences, up to 200 campers meet together from each of the member churches to draw away from the world and draw closer to the Lord. The fall season, usually September or October, brings the annual Fall Bible Conference and Annual Corporate Business Meeting. Again, for three to four days, we meet to receive spiritual and educational enrichment and conduct the annual business of the BMA. The Spring and Fall Bible Conferences are usually hosted by one of our local churches and always provide opportunites to renew fellowship and learn more of the Lord.

We hope, if you are interested in the BMA, that you will come join us for one of these activities. We have fun, lots of food and loads of fellowship. Come join us some time.
