emmet inlinePastor Curt and Shelly DeFord have served Grace Baptist Church, Emmetsburg, Iowa, for the past 15 years. Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, remembers attending the recognition council for this  church in the 1980s. Upon returning on Sunday, Aug. 21, Chris was delighted to see the church is alive and well. The congregation participated fervently in blended worship. Chris presented Regular Baptist Press International in the Sunday School hour. He split his time in the morning service preaching in the first half and concluded by sharing the International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries.
