The 29th Anniversary of the Broyles Mission Conference gives us all the opportunity to celebrate our Chapel’s outreach and experience the work, goals, and accomplishments of supported organizations.

The conference is self-funded and all proceeds are distributed to the presenting organizations. No Chapel funds are used.

Our goal is to raise $85,000.

Please prayerfully consider your role in the success of this year’s mission conference – a Chapel tradition for 29 years.
