The missionary sermon was given by Oscar Funderburke. The report on the Baptist Student Union provided important information about the union as well as ways one could help support it. A report on the Royal Ambassadors program discussed restarting it within the church to encourage missionary efforts in young boys. A report on the Royal Ambassadors camp was also given. In the Visual Aid report, there was a push to obtain items like film, chalk boards and maps for every room in the church.
