California Southern Baptist Convention is excited to “Re-Engage” with messengers and guests for the 2021 Annual Meeting.
This year, we are planning a full, three-day meeting to fellowship with one another, visit exhibits, attend auxiliary meetings, and do the business of CSBC. We also look forward to celebrating what our churches are doing to reach California with the Gospel. It’s time to “Re-Engage.”
