2023 TNCE Vertical 3 Expo / CTS Wrapup

Free Will Baptist students from across the state of Tennessee arrived on the campus of Welch College on April 28-29 for the Tennessee State CTS Ministry Expo. Bible competition began this year’s expo on Friday evening, April 28 at 6:00 pm. The music and arts competition took place on Saturday, April 29 at 9:00 am.

Up from 96 entries in 2022, Students ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade, competed in 41 Bible events, 28 music events, 10 drama events, and 34 creative arts events. They competed in 123 entries total. A list of winners is available here.

Free Will Baptists across the state of Tennessee should be incredibly proud of these students and their hard work.

It would be hard to overstate how deeply we thank each of the judges for their time and labor of love. Special thanks to Pam Buck and Daniel Webster, who went above and beyond in helping this year.

The state expo also offered two different opportunities for ministry leaders and parents to meet with David Womack, representing Randall House and D6. David presented a workshop entitled The Bible: It’s Not Just For Sunday and gave suggestions on how D6 materials work in sync with this goal. For more information, please visit https://d6family.com/

Please pray for those students who will be representing the state of Tennessee at the 2023 National CTS Ministry Expo in Raleigh July 16-19. Prayerfully consider encouraging the students in your local church to be involved in the 2024 Tennessee State CTS Ministry Expo.
