Every year but two since 1894 we have gathered on the Tabernacle mount to seek God’s face and receive His truth and transformation.

Kingswood Learn Workshop
400 Leaders – Kingswood Learn Workshop (July 14th)

During Beulah Family Camp @ 1:30 p.m. on Ordination Day (July 14th), a special Kingswood Learn Workshop will be offered by Dr. Darren Campbell & President Steve Lennox to demonstrate the features of the Kingswood Learn platform.

  • ALL pastors and key lay leaders are strongly encouraged to stay after lunch on Ordination Day for this innovative workshop as Atlantic District Churches have opportunity to get in on the ground level to access and benefits of these micro-courses which will be available in the New Year for raising leaders in the local church.
  • President Lennox shared, “We’re convinced this will strengthen the church, a central pillar of our mission.” CLICK HERE to get a taste of Kingswood Learn!

The DBA is recommending churches consider the minimum “badging” level for a local church certificate you may create as part of the 400 Leaders 2027 Vision. This has a very nominal certification fee per micro-course and will still be available for free if Kingswood is not asked to certify satisfactory completion.

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, July 15th @ 2:30 p.m.

The King’s Highway – Copies Requested
We share a long tradition of connection in our tribal ethos. The King’s Highwaywas first published in November of 1890. Our Assistant Curator of the Mullen Heritage Archives, Rose Staples (, would gladly receive donations of copies of this denominational publication. There are a few gaps in our permanent records so if you have an old box with some in your attic – feel free to contact Rose and she will coordinate your donation. Other historic Reformed Baptist items may also be considered on a case by case basis.

We also share a rich heritage in prayer-bathed gatherings during Beulah Family Camp every July (since 1894). A century ago the call to prayer printed above was sent out in The King’s Highway (April 30, 1923) for Beulah Family Camp (BFC). Would you join our District Board of Administration in setting aside one meal to fast and pray this week for the Spirit’s anointing and power to transform lives as we seek His face together? Let’s lift up our prayers, “Revive me, O Lord!”
  • You will not want to miss visiting the Mullen Heritage Archives during BFC. Especially during the special appearance on Tuesday evening following the service of Rev. Ella Kinney Sanders, part of first missionary couple sent out from the Atlantic District in 1901.
