Conference Info


Heart of the South is a ministry of Peoples Baptist Church, bringing together like-minded churches with the purpose of influencing the next generation for the cause of Christ. Our Teen Explosions are excitement-packed events full of games and skits, singing and preaching, and great food with new friends, providing opportunity for fellowship with others who share their faith and promote their desire to know Christ better.

Hosted at Peoples Baptist Church by Dr. David McCoy (pastor) and Bro. Nathan Rickner (youth pastor)

Guest Speaker

Dr. Scott Pauley

Dr. Scott Pauley is a favorite around Peoples Baptist Church. He travels across the country, speaking to teenagers and adults alike. He spent twelve years as Vice President of Crown College  in Powell, Tennessee, and now travels full-time as an evangelist. He and his wife Tammy have three children and currently live in West Virginia. He has a strong burden for this generation and we are so excited to have him with us this October!

Next Teen Explosion

Saturday, October 6 @ 3 PM

Churches these days tend to err toward trendy. Malls are trendy; churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there's still a church that feels like a church. It's not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It's timeless, as in 2000 years ago.
