PHOENIX (BP)–Missionary zeal will be underscored during the Southern Baptist Conference of Associational Directors of Missions’ 42nd annual meeting June 15-16 in Phoenix.

“The DOM: Missionary at Heart” will be the theme of the conference, which opens with a 9:45 a.m. worship service Sunday, June 15. The president’s address, by Don Reed, director of missions from Kansas City, Kan., is slated for the Sunday afternoon session.

Ernie Perkins, a humorist and director of missions from Oklahoma City, will deliver the after-dinner entertainment Sunday evening.

Also featured during the two-day conference will be Carlisle Driggers, the current co-chair of the SBC’s Empowering Kingdom Growth Task Force and executive director-treasurer of the South Carolina Baptist Convention, and O.S. Hawkins, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Annuity Board.
