The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville is preparing for their annual Prayer Conference to be held September 12 through September 14 in the historic R.G. Lee Chapel beginning at 10 a.m.

BCF welcomes back two faithful prayer warriors who have led the event for the past nine years, Wayne Barber, Senior Pastor of Woodland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee and founder of To Live is Christ Ministries, and Rick Shepherd, Director of Prayer and Spiritual Awakening at the Florida Baptist Convention.

Barber and Shepherd served together at Woodland Park Baptist Church from 1983-2000. They combine their years of experience together and commitment to prayer in leading the annual event. They consistently use humor and strong biblical truths engulfed in prayer to challenge participants to pray and prepare for the mandate of "Changing the World Through the Unchanging Word®."

The three day conference is held during each fall semester focusing on prayer and how vital it is in the life of an individual, a community and the nation. The annual event not only prepares BCF students and faculty for the exciting and challenging semester ahead, but also inspires others to join together to pray and strengthen their prayer life.

For more information on the Prayer Conference and other upcoming conferences, please call at 800-328-2660 ext. 446 or visit www.baptistcollege.edu.
