Baptist State Convention to dedicate new Colfax camp

The Louisiana Home & Foreign Missions Baptist State Convention will host a dedication service for its Fountain Pines Baptist Camp at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 17.

The camp is located at 200 Bagdad Loop Road in Colfax.

The Rev. Dr. J. Michael Sanders, pastor of Fountain Baptist Church of Summit, N.J., will be the speaker.

“We have been working with cleanup days, construction projects, planning and our walk of faith to get to this point,” said Dr. Samuel C. Tolbert, Convention president. “Please make plans to be a part of this historic and festive occasion.

The camp is a 25-acre tract of land with some 17 that include, a two-bedroom home for a resident camp director, office and classroom space, a large kitchen, a large general assembly area that will be used for worship and cafeteria, dormitories, storage building, infirmary, and recreational areas.

Having the camp, Tolbert said, allows the opportunity for the Convention to  provide youth summer camps and retreats, leadership training institutes, pastor retreats, and disaster response. The facility will also serve as the Convention’s headquarters.
