Praise the Lord for His mercy endures forever and His grace is all sufficient. Praying for you, your family, your church, and your ministry, are part of my regular prayers. I regulary set aside time to pray for every pastor, pastor's wife, and church, on my list. My hope is that the Lord will greatly bless you during the upcoming holiday season. You have blessed and embraced my wife, Cathy, and myself, so thank you!
Thank you to everyone who dontated backpacks for Appalachia. This act of love and kindness will bless poor children this Christmas. the evangelistic Christmas story accompanied every backpack. I know the Lord will bless your efforts. We had 563 backpacks donated to our office. The total number of backpacks donated to the Applachian Regional Ministry was 20,302.
We experienced our third Southern Gospel Extravaganza on November 8th, and it was quite an experience. Experiencing these multi-cultural events truly is a blessing and helps to advance the Kingdom of God. The great singing, heartfelt fellowship, and inspirational worship bring both joy and excitement to my soul. we worshiped Jesus as a multicultural congregation. These events afford the opportunity to worship with cross cultural Baptist and members of other evangelical denominations. Pray about attending our next Southern Gospel Extravaganza.
I am available for multiple ministry support actions, events, and activities! If I can help your church with assessments and revitalization ministries, please contact me. Do you need someone to train teams of soul winners, or help with door-to-door witnessing, or help with structuring organized evangelism? (I desire to help your church.) I pray for spiritual renewal in our churches; also, we can plan both revivals and discipleship prayer seminars together. We need church plants in our Augusta Assocaitions, especially Africian American, multi ethnic, and possibly, two more language missions (I can really help you with the assessment of your church field's needs). The only thing I ask of you is to give me some advance notice in scheduling events and activities, I usually need 30-60 days notice. Let us put the "Five Smooth Stones" in our slings and attack the giants together!
Our Augusta Association of Baptist Churches need to continue supporting Kingdom Generosity by including us in your budget. We are strictly supported by our local Baptist Churches and your generous support enables us to do ministry.
Finally, please pray for our Association and become more involved, as we seek to cooperate with multiple church ministry and activites like:
Assocaitonal-wide mission trips
Broad Street Ministry Center ministries (and possible future ministry center to be located in South Augusta)
Southern Gospel Extravaganzas (all four cross cultural worship styles experienced)
The future Augusta Project: Cross Cultural Commission
G.B.C. sponsored workshops in Augusta (we have two scheduled for January 2014)
Pastors support groups
Benevolent activities and many more opportunties will be forthcoming!
I am honored to serve you and serve with you as your Associational Missionary/D.O.M.
