A Missionary’s Message

 

Our New Associational Year

 Our focus this coming year will be to facilitate missions and ministry together and work with multiple churches who are working alongside each other (like last year, but expanding to have more churches involved). We are cooperating and working together through our Baptist Association to be on mission for Jesus Christ as we seek to help reduce “lostness”  and lead to church revitalization in Augusta, West Virginia, and anywhere else the Lord leads us (Acts 1:8).

Our Three Newly Commissioned Missionaries

We commissioned three missionaries: Gail Griner, Johnny Mack, and Kaye Morris.  They will continue to serve with our Baptist Association and our local churches to help us be on mission for Jesus Christ together. Also, they are helping with the specific ministries that we are involved with as a Baptist Association.

Three Cords Cannot Easily Be Broken

Ecclesiastes 4:12…. Our three cords are tied together to form a strong support system to help support the local church as we are on mission as Great Commission Churches. This system will have a facilitation cord, a missional discipleship cord, and a sending and going cord!

Cord# 1 The Augusta Mission Center: The base of meeting as an Association for training, conferences, missions planning, and summits. Our goal is to support the local churches and have a common meeting place.

Common Union Gathering: Communion of Space

Cord# 2 An Augusta Missions Institute (unofficial name): The base of training and discipleship as an Association on Mission as Great Commission Churches. Our goal is to support local churches in missional discipleship as Great Commission Churches. Common Union Missional Discipleship: Communion of Discipleship

Cord #3 Augusta Missions Laboratory (unofficial name):  The base of sending our associational members, partners, and exercising missions and ministry through our partnerships. Our goal is to support local churches in doing missions and going out on mission as Great Commission Churches. Common Union Sending and Going: Communion of Missional Efforts

Linking Arms Across the River

(discussion stage, for 2017):

A discussion and preliminary planning meeting is coming and this mission church planting effort will impact C.S.R.A. churches on both sides of the river. Cooperative new work conducted at the local church level.      

          In His Secure Grip,

            Dr. “B”
