At the beginning of each new fiscal year, the Reformed Free Publishing Association members and friends gather to hear about the importance of our work and to see where that work has taken us in the past year. This meeting is an opportunity to thank each association member for their support in the cause of witnessing to the truth of God’s Word and to encourage the RFPA board, editors, and authors in their diligent work. Visitors are welcome, and all male attendees are encouraged to join the Association of Reformed Free Publishing by signing up at the meeting.
