Big Emory Baptist Association will continue a tradition of more than 30 years with its Draw the Line youth conference next month in Pigeon Forge.

Worship, praise, skits, testimonies and black lights are planned for the conference, which will be March 22-23 in the Country Tonite Theatre, the latest venue for the Pigeon Forge event.

“God’s blessings have been amazing as we have moved from Smokey Shadows to the Grand to  the Governor’s Palace and now to the Country Tonite Theatre,” said the Rev. Mason Goodman, director of missions for Big Emory Baptist Association.

“There have been wonderful speakers and worship bands from all over the South,” he added. “Hundreds of young lives have been transformed through the power of the gospel of Christ.”

The conference is open to area students of all faiths from all area churches. Those signing up during early-bird registration through Feb. 25 will pay $18 per person. Registration afterward and at the door will be $20.

Checks should be made payable to BEBA and mailed to Big Emory Baptist Association, P.O. Box 444, Harriman, TN 37748.

Registration in Pigeon Forge will start at 2 p.m. March 22. The conference begins at 6:50 p.m. that day, with conference hours the following day from 9 a.m. to noon.

Scott Carter, student pastor of Sevierville First Baptist Church and one of the founders of the Hearts on Fire youth conference, will be the guest speaker. David Kelly will be worship leader, with music presented by Stereo Radio of Knoxville.
