Send Your Church’s News

Want to send news about your church’s event or ministry for the Soundbytes column of the Baptist Bulletin?

The Baptist Bulletin is the magazine of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches—it’s a magazine about your church!

Each year we publish hundreds of articles about GARBC churches and people. You’ll find these in the Soundbytes section of the Baptist Bulletin and online at GARBC.org.

We are always excited to hear how God is working, so please consider writing a report about an event or a unique ministry at your church and submitting your report to soundbytes@BaptistBulletin.org.

  • Tell us what happened. Include the basic Who, What, When, Where, and Why.
  • Be a reporter. Interview people involved in the event or ministry. Write down the interesting parts of what they say. Ask people “why,” not just “what.”
  • Focus on people. How did your event change the people who attended? Why was it important to your church? What were your leaders trying to accomplish?
  • Get the names right. Who was important to the event? Did you forget anyone? Did you spell their names correctly and give their positions or ministries at your church?
  • Keep it short. 300 words is good, or shorter.
  • Run spell check!
  • Send quality photos. Send your photos along with your report to soundbytes@BaptistBulletin.org. Make sure your photos are at least 2 MB.
