Eighteen Month Evaluation:

I have been so blessed to be your D.O.M./Associational Missionary for over 19 months.  Our churces have blessed me with so many ministry opportunities like:  Filling the pulpits, preaching revivals, teaching Soul Winning Workshops, teaching misions, teaching the EVANGECUBE, supporting our West Virginia Reciprocating Partnership, helping pastors and churches in crisis, and several other ministry opportunities.  The fruit of our Vision Trip (David Stockton and myself, along with Dr. Frank Nuckolls, Rev. Bill Barker, and Rev. Glen McCall) is just being harvested.  The week we toured West virginia, last year, was time well spent.  I am blessed to serve you and serve with you.

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.
