Paul Williams

In order that laymen may meet the demands, which God and the church impose upon them, they must organize themselves into meaningful, purposeful groups. These groups must have a firm foundation, purpose and a clear direction in formulating objectives. Dr. Jesse Jai McNeil describes the purpose of the Laymen’s Movement best in his book, “Men in the Local Church”.


1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (KJV~)

1131 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 1141 Let all your things be done with charity.

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (TLB)

{14} Keep your eyes open for spiritual danger; stand true to the Lord; act like men; be strong; <14> and whatever you do, do it with kindness and love.

The life Christ lived qualified Him for the death He died, and the death Christ died qualifies us for the life we live. Unknown

If the Church does not recapture her prophetic zeal, the Church will become an irrelevant social club without moral or Spiritual authority. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Martin Luther King, Jr.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good Men do nothing. Edmund Burke

Where there is no power and grace in the Christian church to bring down every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, the church becomes not merely useless but dangerous. Reinhold Niebuhr

Joint Laymen Conference 2018

Click Picture for snapshots...



The Consolidated Missionary Baptist Convention Laymen and The Regular Arkansas Baptist Convention laymen came together in its first Joint Conference on August 25, 2018 at Arkansas Baptist College in Little Rock, Arkansas The event itself was a Historical endeavor and was deemed a success as both conventions worked very eagerly to encourage not only Senior Laymen to attend but Jr. Laymen as well. President Paul Williams and President Terry Coleman were excited about the classes that were taught: The Role of the Laymen, Bro. Rosboro Hendrix, Church Leadership, Dr. Lloyd Hervey and Home Improvement: Leading Your Family God’s Way, Rev. Earnest Thomas. The classes were in two hour blocks with about 70 in attendance for this first effort.

Closing remarks were given State Convention Presidents, President Dr. C. Dennis Edwards of Consolidated and President James E. Mackey of Regular Arkansas both men noted the Historical implications of the meeting.
