AUGUSTA PROJECT

 

 

Blue Sky Institute:  The institute will be designed with cohorts, colleagues, and collegiate minded individuals teaching and learning together in both a classroom and mission field environment. Certificates and diplomas will be conferred upon participants. The urban inner city contextualization with a cross-cultural setting are at the heart of the teaching and learning experience. The courses will be credentialed but not accredited at this point and time. The tracks and core curriculum are being developed. The goal of the experience will seek to equip and encourage laymen/laywomen to exercise the Spiritual gifts the Lord has given them to engage in discipleship and missions/ministries experiences. Practical application and functional purpose will be contextualized with cross cultural experiences in mind.  Our Cross Cultural Commission and participants of our CCC activities will have a high interest in the Blue Sky Institute. 

Cross Cultural Commission:  Our next meeting will be December 8, at 6:30PM, at the Augusta Mission Center.  Association churches are asked to send pastors are representatives. The final meeting of the year will focus on launching the Augusta Urban Bible Institute, along with discussing objectives for 2017.

Reciprocating Partnership: We delivered over 2100 backpacks to West Virginia with six deliveries in Coalfield and one in Allegheny.  Fourteen local churches participated in the deliveries and helped with sixteen events.  Thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard filling backpacks, packing boxes, and loading vehicles!

 

Merry Christmas and

A Happy New Year!

Cathy and I desire to extend to you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a most Happy Joyous New Year. We have been blessed and challenged by our ministry in Augusta. I thank all the pastors and church leaders who have entrusted me with serving you in the following ways: ordination councils, conducting Lord Suppers, co-administering baptisms, preaching revivals, filling your pulpits, working with pastor search committees, helping with some challenging situations including moderating some business meetings, and preaching Homecomings. I was especially honored to conduct and train your church members in: “Soul Patrol Workshops,” evangelism and W.I.N. School discipleship, door-to-door witnessing, prayer walking your neighborhoods, serving at your block parties, passing out flyers, conducting surveys, and serving at some of your outreach events. My life was blessed with opportunities to serve with you in West Virginia, in the inner city of Augusta, in the streets and the neighborhoods in South Augusta, and to join in prayer walking streets and neighborhoods in West Augusta. I was blessed to attend and participate in a reconciliation service between two of our churches, attend an old fashion tent revival, and visit with ministers and their families in hospitals. I pray that the Lord will blessed me with these types of ministry and mission’s activities and church events in 2017.  

Four New Member Churches

Three New Missionaries

We experienced an historic year with regards to four new member churches (locates throughout our area) joining our Baptist Association. Also, we respectively commissioned three new missionaries to help us in our mission as a Baptist Association in three distinct missional needs: Inner City and the Broad Street Ministry Center (Mrs. Kaye Morris), City-wide planning (Mrs. Gail Griner), and West Virginia (Dr. Johnny Mack). We are already planning another church plant (multi-ethnic, or African American) in South Augusta. We are searching for an African American church planter (either trained, or willing to be bi-vocational while being trained).

Augusta Mission Lab and

World Changers/P2

We had a great 2016 Summer with teams coming to Augusta from Alabama and Dahlonega, GA. These teams borrowed showers at Dayspring Baptist Church and helped with missions and ministry in Augusta. We are currently working on installing seven showers at The Augusta Mission Center, hoping to have them ready by this spring. Our partnership with World Changers / P2 is expanding. We are working towards offering small customized mission projects to be conducted at The Augusta Mission Center and still offer our “Classic Project” next Summer. We hope and pray to offer internships and practicum opportunities in the near future.

Annual Meeting and

Bridges to Missions Celebration Weekend

We installed new member churches and newly appointed missionaries in the annual meeting. The celebration banquet was attended by approximately 250 people. We enjoyed hearing from our state missionaries, from Bill Barker, Appalachian Regional Ministry, and from foreign missionaries. Also, we had 33 state missionaries minister in 33 of our churches on Sunday.  We celebrated our two-year partnership with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board.
