Olivet Baptist Church At Work!
 
From our church, out to churches, missions and gospel meetings across the South, the preachers, evangelists, musicians and singers from Olivet maintain a continuous schedule of service in the cause of Christ.  Souls are coming to know the Saviour and believers are encouraged by the faithfulness of these men and women.  Thanks to all who regularly share the faith with others.  The following list is being compiled of those who go beyond the walls of the church with the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.  More to come....
