  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           Have you ever thought that trying to reach people with the gospel is somewhat like fishing? Well, the idea is not exactly novel. "Follow Me," Jesus said, "and I will make you become fishers of men" (Mark 1:17 NKJ). I like the way Adrian Rogers applied this verse when he said, "Be fishers of men...you catch 'em, He'll clean 'em."
           Anyone who is serious about fishing will tell you not to expect to catch great numbers of fish if you only go fishing once or twice a year. My neighbors at the beach who are serious about catching fish tell me that I need to go fishing as often as possible and learn all about the fish if I want to catch a lot of fish. The key word that came to my mind as these true fishermen were telling me how to catch fish was commit-ment.
           Our churches in the TBA have a real desire for outreach because we know our main responsibility is the Great Commission. I thoroughly believe each of our churches want to see their churches grow by reaching lost people with the gospel and disciplining them. My heart is overjoyed by seeing over 100 new believers saved and baptized through the outreach efforts of our churches this year.
           Through your example of love for the Lord and for the spiritually lost, you are set for developing an ongoing heart for reaching out with the gospel message on a consistent basis. But to be a growing church or a successful fisherman, we must go back to that word commit-ment!
           So you want to catch fish, lots of fish. What now? Hit the gulf? Wrong. First, you must "get ready" for effective fishing. My friends told me I need the right equipment, bait, skill, and knowledge of the fish if I want to catch lots of fish.
           As Barry, a first-class fisherman, explained the secrets to being a successful fisherman, I quickly decided I would be content just going to Roy's or Deal's to catch my fish because it would be cheaper and less time consuming. I guess I was unwilling to make the commit-ment to catch lots of fish.
           We all want our churches to grow and to be pleasing to the One who gave Himself for us! Because we love our Lord and the lost Jesus died to save (1 Timothy 2:6), we must make the commit-ment to the Great Commission. Commit-ment is why we have so many summer activities. Our association of churches plan to work together in reaching our world through our many summer camps, vacation Bible schools, revival services, mission trips, and children/youth ministries...and of course, our Disaster Relief ministries!
                 Keep Fishing for Men!
