A Missionary's Message


Thank the Lord: I thank the Lord for the blessed opportunities to serve you and serve with you as your Associational Missionary Minister. Lives and hearts are being changed as we serve together while following Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. If you need me to help or support your ministry, please contact me through my office or call me direct. I am available for evangelism and missions training, discipleship work, mission projects, and ministry events, or as you are led of the Lord to use our ministry at the association. I am available to preach at revivals.  I am honored to serve the pastors and the churches of our association. I count it a joy, an honor, a privilege, and a blessing to serve you and serve with you! I am your missionary, and I work for you while enjoying working with you.  I always am willing to support your work with you!

The Augusta Mission Center Update: Praise the Lord!  We finally have full access to all three buildings and our entire Augusta Missions and Ministries Campus. Our buildings are “deemed as built within code for the time of construction.” We have our writ of compliance certificate signed by Captain James Perkins, NFPA Certified Fire Planner Examiner. We have formed a six-member team to compile our official recommendations. “The Master’s Plan Team” was appointed by the Augusta Mission Center’s board of directors and will study and make recommendations to the board on the full utilization of the campus.  An official covenant relationship is to be established with Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Baptist Church and a comprehensive plan of action will be adopted.

Summer Missions Report: We have too many individual church missions and mission trips to list pertaining to all our Baptist Associational churches. Our teams that went on our Associational-Wide Sponsored Mission Trips within our two West Virginia partnerships have great reports. Here is a short overall report (July 14-23): we had a great time at White Sulphur Springs conducting a V.B.S.; prayer walking and street ministry. We delivered supplies to The Green Brier Birthing Center (a pregnant women’s prison) and ministered to mothers and babies.  At Denmar, we did construction work and major cleaning; conducted a worship service at a nursing home; conducted a block party and give-away event at Gilbert Creek; delivered clothes to Lockgelly Baptist Church at Oak Hill; delivered backpacks for Sutton. I preached at partnership churches in both Huntersville and Summersville; attended a prayer meeting in Wharton; visited with pastors, leadership, or church member and discussed our November 16-18 backpack delivery and distribution. We visited with the pastors in the cities where our partnership churches are located: Oak Hill, White Sulphur Springs, Huntersville, Denmar, Summersville, Ansted, Gilbert Creek, and Logan, West Virginia. An official future report will be submitted, all reports are not in yet at the production deadline of this newsletter. We are now turning attention to our next major backpack give away events.  Hundreds of children and many parents are getting saved.

Next Cross Cultural Commission Meeting:  The busy summer schedules are coming to an end. We need to invite guest and have visitors come to our August 3rd meeting, 6:30 p.m., at The Augusta Mission Center at Glenn Hills, 2877 Lumpkin Road, Augusta, Ga. The commission’s work is both rewarding and fulfilling. All members of our association are welcomed visitors and we usually have invited guest. 

In His Secure Grip,
