  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist

           This month I sent to your pastor this picture of a Georgia historical marker that retraced a great move of God that took place in Georgia back in 1827. The fire of God ignited this revival at the annual associational meeting of the Ocmulgee Baptist Association. This revival swept through over 22 counties in less than two years with over 16,000 people coming to the Lord in repentance and being baptized.
           Claude King described this as the Great Georgia Revival of 1827. At this associational meeting, 4,000 people gathered outside a small church of that association and prayerfully listened to its pastor, Adiel Sherwood, preach the Word of God. Sherwood stood atop a stump and proclaimed the gospel with authority and great conviction. By the way, there was no church in that association that could have even seated a crowd of 500.
           History records that the ground was so moistened by the tears of the repentant people, it looked as if an afternoon shower had occurred. You may be thinking right now, "Come on Henry! Do you really believe that was because of an association?" I would quickly respond with...No! But if you were to study this event, you would soon learn about the nine women who were members of many of the churches in the association. For over ten years, these ladies had come together weekly praying for God to send a revival and an awaking across Georgia.
           I love that an Associational gathering was pivotal in a revival movement that witnessed the salvation of about 16,000 people in less than two years. You do know the association is the earliest historical expression and most practical form of organized ministry cooperation among Baptist in America. It predates conventions and mission boards. The cooperative relational bonds experienced in Associations provided the context for the outworking of the great common doctrinal confessions among Baptist.
           I am so excited about what God wants to do through the Taylor Baptist Association. God has opened many doors of opportunity for us here in North Florida and around the world. Like those nine ladies of prayer, I believe God can rock this world through the TBA!

                             Praying for Revival,

                             Henry Cannington
