We are grateful to be to be associated with the Minnesota Association of Regular Baptist Churches (MARBC), a fellowship of independent, self-governing Baptist churches within the state. Our intent is to encourage other local bodies in the faith by helping them fulfill their God-given responsibilities. 

We are also happy to formally associate and work closely together with those who are doctrinally and conservatively akin to our beliefs, including those churches who are not within the MARBC. More broadly, we rejoice to fellowship with any gospel-believing follower of Jesus Christ.


Rev. Darrell Friar has served as the MARBC State Representative since 2000. His primary responsibility involves overseeing Bass Lake Camp, the state's Regular Baptist Christian camp for children, youth, and families. He and his wife Cindy have been happily married for over 30 years, have three grown children, and are enjoying an increasing number of grandchildren (just ask to see pictures)

Brother Friar is available for meetings in your church, and he may be contacted at
