Jaimie Hernandez of First Baptist Church of Eupora said PASSION 2017 Conference has changed his life forever.
“ It made me see, with not just my eyes but my heart as well, and has changed my life for the better,” Hernandez said. “One of my favorite things that happened at the event was when I saw hundreds maybe even thousands of people stand up to accept Christ into their lives and my heart was just filled with Joy!”
Hernandez was one of 10 students from First Baptist Church of Eupora to travel to Atlanta, Ga. last week to take part in the 2017 PASSION Conference held at the Georgia Dome.
The youth minister at First Baptist Church of Eupora said his “call to ministry” was “gradual, involving a lot of uncertainty and seeking the Lord’s will” above his own; however, for Cody Robertson, it is clear that God has plans for him to serve God through the church.
Robertson is from Richland and was raised in a Christian home. Upon entering the youth group at his home church, he quickly rose to be one of the leaders of the group, even though he was one of the youngest.
“My youth minister in some ways mentored me, always taking me with him to visit students or preparing for worship on Wednesday nights,” Robertson said. “We would talk a lot about ministry and what it is to be a minister, and how it is much more than just a job, but a calling.

Rev. Travis Gray from First Baptist Church of Eupora shared a few thoughts on Christ’s final words from the Cross, “Father, forgive them…” as part of the Lenten Luncheon Series “Words from the Cross” at Eupora’s First United Methodist Church.
“Christ’s words say ‘I love’ even when I don’t deserve it…His words say ‘I love you’ even when no one else loves you.”
“Do our words and actions say ‘I love you, Lord?’ Do our words say ‘Thank you Lord for what you have done for me? For dying on the cross for me?’ Do our words say, “Father forgive me because I recognize what I have done?'” Continue reading →
