 Missionary's Message

I am so blessed to be serving you and serving with you as your Associational Missionary Minister.  My mission in life and vision for ministry has been enhanced by your participation and prayers with the relationships that we are building together.  The 2014 year has been an eventful year with new partnerships being formed and plans for more partnerships in the future.

Thumb drives are available to all pastors

The Augusta Project information and structure is on a thumb drive.  All pastors who did not attend “The 65th Annual Meeting” have a thumb drive available for them to pick up from our office.  There are folders and files that have documents, a power point presentation, and four videos of varying lengths of time.  Also available at our office are the Book of Reports and Discovering God’s Will Together Partnership Booklet.

Augusta Project Missions and Ministry: Impacting Our World

 The impact of our partnerships cannot be overstated.  The participation of our partners to help reduce lostness is a key.  Also, helping focus on church revitalization in Augusta, Georgia, West Virginia, and to wherever the Lord leads us are the goals of our Augusta Project.  The Lord will use us in His kingdom to impact our world.

Georgia Baptist Convention Partnership: Important Partnership Signing:

 We signed our Partnership Agreement with representative Dr. Frank Nuckolls.  We will sign our Partnership Agreement with Dr. Bob White on November 11, 9:45 a.m. at Ingleside Baptist Church, Macon, Georgia.  Our historic partnership can be utilized to impact other cities in Georgia as they consider engaging their cities with strategic initiatives.

Ministry Centers Update: South August Missions and Ministry Center

 South Augusta Missions and Ministry Center Orientation Meeting:  We will conduct an initial orientation meeting December 2, 11:00 a.m. to be assembled at Glenn Hills, 2877 Lumpkin Rd., Augusta, Georgia 30906.  A tour of the facilities will begin at 11:15 sharp.  All pastors and staff are invited.  We will discuss and form a Transition Team for the Center.  Meeting ministry and mission needs within neighborhoods and communities are the reasons for partnering with our ministry centers.

Missions and Ministry Training Projects:

 Training church planters, pastors, ministers, and church leaders are important in engaging our multi-ethnic cultures in Augusta.  Having access to accredited seminary courses in Augusta will help us to fulfill the Great Commission.

 The New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Extension Center will begin functioning in 2015.  The exact date of the initial first classes will be forthcoming.  There are opportunities for qualified teachers to function as seminary professors  Your key contact is Josh Saefkow at Abilene Baptist Church or jsaefkow @myabilene.org

 In His Secure Grip,

Dr. "B"

Ministry Project

Does your church need a ministry project?

I have been contacted by "Developmental Disabilities Ministries."  They have two homes here in the Augusta area. The Pedigo and Drew Homes for women.  Both homes are in need of assistance in several areas.

The churches in the West Augusta Coalition, that worked together on "Love Acts" projects, have agreed to adopt the Pedigo Home for women.  They will work to help meet the needs of that home.  The second home is the Drew Home for women; both homes have a need for perishables.  If your church is looking for a ministry project please call the Association office and we will give you contact information and a list of the needs.
