  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           God placed a consuming burden upon my heart for our community in the area of spiritual awakening and revival for our churches. This deep, burning desire continues to grow in my heart and I see it spreading to our churches and across our association and nation. I feel we may be on the edge of another Jesus Revolution. I believe God is up to something!
           Prior to the First Great Awakening in the United States, Jonathan Edwards with many pastors and churches in the colonies established what they called "a rhythm of prayer." Visiting many of the midweek services of our churches, I've witness an amazing fresh awareness of the presence of God in our prayer meetings and a growing desire for a mighty move of God.
           In more recent days, many state conventions and associations with prayer and revival ministries are encouraging believers and churches to adopt this ongoing rhythm of prayer in their own churches. In this moment of great need for an encounter with God, I see this as the perfect time for the Revive Conference with Richard Blackaby and Mark Clifton that we will be attending on September the 14th at Hopeful Baptist Church in Lake City.
           I want to prayerfully present here as a challenge for you to consider how you or your church can join with the hundreds of thousands of believers and thousands of churches who are currently a part of this rhythm of prayer with the same heartbeat of past prayer warriors for revival.

           Because we know:
    • Our absolute dependence on God
    • The moral and spiritual challenges facing our nation
    • Our national need for repentance and divine intervention
    • The covenants of prayer that God has answered throughout history
    • Our great hope for a general awakening to the lordship of Christ, the unity of His Body, and the sovereignty of His Kingdom

    I believe the time is right for Taylor Baptist Association to unite with other believers in seeking the face of God through fervent prayer, persistently asking our Father to send revival to the Church and spiritual awakening to our nation so that Christ's Great Commission might be accomplished in our community, state, and nation. This cooperative effort in prayer seems "good to the Holy Spirit and to us" (Acts 15:28) in light of the promise of Jesus in Matthew 18:19 and the unity for which Jesus prayed in John 17.
           As we begin the new church year, I rejoice to see our associational churches moving forward in ministry and missions despite the disruption covid has caused in our community and nation. The increase in baptisms, rebooting of Bible studies and worship services, mission projects, prayer ministries, and the numbers of our churches involved in an intense discipling process should encourage us all.
           But most of all, God is still on His throne and He still saves "whosoever will" that comes to Him (Just ask Alice Cooper). I just can't wait to see what God does next through TBA!

                             In His Service,

                             Henry (1 Thessalonians 5:24)
