Who we are

Lady Madelyn Patterson, the leading lady of the New Lincoln Missionary Baptist Church and Womens Ministry Director,  presents a marvelous conference - Beyond the Masquerade:From a Mess to a Masterpiece. 

God heals, restores, and can turn your situation around. God is a God of restoration and when we live by faith and make Him our refuge, He will restore us in due season. Let’s examine the meaning of “restoration,” or “turnaround”

Isaiah 43:18–19 says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. One of the greatest gifts God has given us is the opportunity to start again—and without exception, we all need a fresh start from time to time.

Spirit Filled Speakers

We wear the mask to “hide our cheeks and shade our eyes.” So as not to count all our “tears and cries.” Not only do we wear the mask, but far too often we actually become the mask. We are so good at masking our masked hurt, and masking our deception that truth be told, nobody really knows who we are….and sometimes, we forget who we are supposed to be.


Mime Ministry, Praise and Worship

A powerful spiritual worship experience is in store for each conference participant as we are led by gospel recording artists in song and praise.
