Entry Instructions for
Up Close with the Duggars

Dear Up Close Attendee,


Thank you for choosing to join us for the "Up Close" with Michelle Duggar and some of her family. This event will be attended by a smaller, more intimate group allowing for a Q & A time and perhaps a photo opportunity, if time permits. Plus, you'll enjoy a Box Dinner from Chick-fil-a.


As a reminder, this is an add-on event for FGF Conference goers. All must have purchased both an FGF Ticket and an Up Close Ticket (all proceeds benefiting The Caring People ministry to single moms).


Up Close with Michelle begins promptly at 5 p.m. on Friday.


Below are some instructions that will assist you in getting to the event in a timely fashion.

  • Signage is posted at the church to direct you to the only door that will be open for Up Close attendees.
  • Park in the West lot at Second Baptist Church at 3111 East Battlefield Road, Springfield, MO. Their phone # is 417-887-3111.
  • You will enter through the West doors that are visible under the covered drop-off driveway.
  • Your entire party needs to check in at the same time.  Each person must be wearing their FGF Conference wristband ticket.  Only those attending the conference may attend the Up Close Session. If you purchased your tickets after the mailing deadline, we will have your tickets waiting for you at the West doors.
  • Check in time is 4:30 pm to 4:55 pm.
  • You will be directed to the Gathering Room on the second level of the church by way of stairs or an elevator.
  • The event begins at 5:00 pm with a Chick-fil-a Box Dinner including a chicken sandwich, chips, brownie and bottled water.  The event will conclude around 5:30 pm.  
  • If you are a conference volunteer, please check in at the West door at 4:50 and leave the gathering room at 5:30 to return to your post.

If you do not have a ticket to the Friday-Saturday conference you may purchase one today by calling our FGF offices at 417-888-2067 or online at www.freshgroundedfaith.com 


If you need an additional ticket for the Up Close event, the deadline is Wednesday at noon.


Thank you for attending the Up Close session.  Your ticket benefits The Caring People, a ministry with the purpose of reaching single moms with the love of Jesus. 



God Bless You,
