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.
