Newton County, Miss. A church in Newton County is hosting a leadership conference this week.
The Mounting up with Eagle's Wings Leadership Conference is taking place at White Stone Baptist Church in Lawrence.
Local authors who are also pastors Wednesday signed books they've written. They say they want to spread the word of God here locally.
"We want local authors and local pastors to be exposed and let the world know that God can do it in the city and the country," said the Rev. Everett Heidelberg.
Other authors who signed books were Lorenzo Carter from Assembly Baptist Church, Linda Willis of Agape Storehouse Fellowship, and Lou Ann Heidelberg of White Stone Baptist church.
