Hurry and Register for FCM’s Spectacular Southern Exposure to America’s Bible Belt Conference!
May 4-6 at St. Charles Convention Center, St. Charles, MO



Standing steadfast in the horrific storm against God and His Word, we praise His name for continually providing FCM with the most godly speakers and life transforming messages available. It is such a blessing to come together each year to sup, one with another, at the Lord’s banquet table, as He bolsters our faith and strengthens us to carry on in a culture that is in such opposition to Christians. Looking forward to fellowshipping with all of you, once again, and growing together in a deeper understanding of His Word!

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history. –George Orwell


Speakers’ Workshops



Conference Attendees

The scope of your labors cannot be measured in incremental ways. Surely God’s blessings will continue down through hundreds of generations because of your efforts. –Canton, GA

We care deeply about the work you all are doing at FCM, and we care deeply about your family. May He use and bless things to manifest His Kingdom, glorify His name, and build individuals, marriages, families, churches and the civil sphere. Hosanna! –Spring Hill, TN


Attention all Historical Impersonators

Please let us know the character you are impersonating so that we may complete the treasure hunt cards and provide you with a letter explaining your role at the conference.

This cookbook covers it all, from White Bread 101 and the chewiest oatmeal cookies to raisin-pecan rye bread, raspberry mousse cake, and cinnamon puff muffins. We predict this book will become the foundation of every home baker’s library. Authored by the bakers in the King Arthur test kitchen, each and every recipe was tested and re-tested to ensure baking success. Features easy-to-follow tutorials (yeast bread, pie crust...).

altFolks, This Ain’t Normal: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World, Softcover
Written by Joel Salatin
From farmer Joel Salatin’s point of view, life in the 21st century just ain’t normal. In Folks, This Ain’t Normal, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love. Salatin has many thoughts on what normal is and shares practical and philosophical ideas for changing our lives in small ways that have big impact. Hailed by the New York Times as “Virginia’s most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson and the high priest of the pasture,” Salatin was profiled in the Academy Award nominated documentary Food, Inc. and the bestselling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma because he understands what food should be: Wholesome, seasonal, raised naturally, procured locally, prepared lovingly, and eaten with a profound reverence for the circle of life. And his message doesn’t stop there. From child rearing to creating quality family time, to respecting the environment, Salatin writes with a wicked sense of humor and true storyteller’s knack for the revealing anecdote. Salatin’s crucial message and distinctive voice—practical, provocative, scientific, and down-home philosophical in equal measure—make Folks, This Ain’t Normal a must-read book. Value: $16

altDavid Barton’s Newest DVD: Exceptional America’s Keys to Greatness
America truly is a blessed nation. In so many important categories, she represents the exception rather than the rule among the nations of the world. Our exceptionalism encompasses great diversity of race, ethnicity, and religion and has benefited every American. But today, American Exceptionalism is no longer understood or venerated. Following several decades of indoctrination in both education and politics, many Americans now seem ashamed of their country and feel compelled to apologize to others for it. We have been taught America’s flaws but little of its matchless benefits. What produced the blessings we take for granted that so many other nations only dream of? The answer is found in five principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence. Discover these principles and learn what every citizen can do to restore America’s greatness. Generously donated by WallBuilders. Value: $14.95




Design in Astronomy DVD Featuring Dr. Danny Faulkner
There are many features of the Earth and its moon that make the Earth ideally suited for life and humanity. Thus the Earth is unique in our solar system. But what about the more than one thousand planets orbiting other stars that astronomers have discovered in recent years? None of these planets are suitable for life. As we learn more about astronomy, the uniqueness of Earth becomes even clearer! Generously donated by Answers in Genesis. Value: $12.99



Is the Bible True? How Do We Know? DVD Featuring Bodie Hodge
Is the Bible true? This is the key question of life. Christians must be fully assured that it is ... but why? In this foundational approach to the topic, apologist Bodie Hodge reveals some of the least acceptable answers. Sadly, most of us have likely used these answers! The Bible is true because it is from the Author of truth. But how can we know? You will enjoy looking into this subject—one that the world mocks, but Christians know to be of utmost importance! Generously donated by Answers in Genesis. Value: $12.99



Proof of God: Four Questions Atheists Hate to Answer DVD Featuring Eric Hovind
Knowing and using these four simple questions can revolutionize your outreach to anyone who says, “God is not real.” There is even a conversation with a young man who has joined the increasing trend to embrace atheism. Includes quotes from Christopher Hitchens, Paul Baird, David Hume, and other famous anti-God spokesmen whose own words call atheism into question. There is one thing that the Bible says that God must give to anyone before they will receive the truth—even atheists. Understanding this fact will give viewers a deeper passion and empathy for those lost in the pride of their misplaced belief. Generously donated by Answers in Genesis. Value: $12.99




Buried in the Snow Dramatic Audio CD Published by Lamplighter
A boy and his grandfather come face to face with their own mortality within a tomb of snow. Reliance upon God is their only option, as escape is impossible. But the story does not hinge upon the question of their rescue; what captivates is the response that each has to the circumstances that God has placed them in. When death is a constant companion, how does one view life? The ebb and flow of emotions are captivating as the boy and his grandfather fight off predators and the terror produced by the uncertainties of their snowy grave. Generously donated by Lamplighter Publishing. Value: $25

In Freedom’s Cause CD
Can one man’s faith and vision inspire a group of farmers, shepherds, and merchants to defeat the mightiest military force on the planet? William Wallace, by his undaunted courage and strength of character, forever changed the history of Scotland. His stand against oppression—despite overwhelming odds—inspired the heroic leader who would eventually gain Scotland’s freedom, King Robert the Bruce. The source of Wallace’s fire was his faith in God. He loved the Psalms and meditated on them daily. At his execution, Wallace had his psalter placed before him so he could read the Psalms as King Edward’s men tortured him. This is the untold account of Wallace and “The Bruce”—a story that continues to stir our hearts even today. A story that teaches us that true freedom is worth fighting for.

Titanic Museum in Branson Family Pass 2 Adults, 4 children
As the whole world remembers the world’s most famous luxury liner, Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, MO will continue to open the door to the past in its one-of-a-kind way – letting “passengers” experience what it was like to walk the hallways, parlors, cabins and Grand Staircase of the Titanic while surrounded by more than 400 artifacts directly from the ship and its passengers. As visitors touch a real iceberg, walk the Grand Staircase and third class hallways, reach their hands into 28-degree water, and try to stand on the sloping decks, they learn what it was like on the RMS Titanic by experiencing it first-hand. Each guest entering the ship will receive a boarding pass of an actual Titanic passenger or crew. Examine the galleries where over 400 personal and private artifacts are on display. Many are on display for the first time in the world. This collection is valued at over four and a half million dollars. This is a self-guided tour. Discover your passenger or crew’s fate in the Titanic Memorial Room where 2,208 names line this historic wall. The heart of the ship is the Grand Staircase, constructed from the original Harland & Wolff plans with its oak carvings and cherub statue. Here, a magnificent glass dome reflects light off oak wall paneling and elaborate railings and iron scrollwork. Wide, sweeping steps and landings provide a spectacular area where the original guests of the RMS Titanic made their appearances. You’ll be surprised to learn what the floor was made of – something considered most expensive for 1912.

The body responds through a method called “bio-communication.” By placing your hand on the hand cradle, stimuli are sent to the body through electric or bio-feedback communication. The software will record the responses, rank them and generate a report on which biological markers are not in balance. This information helps you determine the priorities of your body’s needs, enabling you to address the biggest priorities first. The Zyto Compass System prioritizes your body’s preferences for specific nutritional needs. This information will help you prioritize which essential oils and/or supplements that your body will need to balance your body system. Everyone’s body chemistry is different, and so when it comes to health, “one size does not fit all.” We need a customized approach to our health. The Zyto Compass helps you do just that!

Paracord Bracelet
This paracord emergency bracelet is an extremely strong pattern of parachute rope woven into fashionable and handy bracelets. This bracelet is a higher quality than most because the creator weaves them much tighter and uses 10 feet of rope, whereas most other bracelets only use 7 feet. This bracelet can hold around 500 pounds. These survival bracelets are in great demand from boys and girls of all ages. If the need arises, you can unravel your bracelet and use it to:
• Tie up gear.
• Make a shelter.
• Use the inner core for fishing line or sutures.
• Use inner strands to mend fabric.
• Make a splint for a broken limb.
• Hang game for drying.
• Make a perimeter trip line for warning.
• Use as a tourniquet.
