  • Announcement
           I find it amazing to see God's heartbeat for reaching the world with the gospel flowing through the ministry of all our churches in the TBA. A spirit of excitement and determination seems to be pushing all of our churches to address the greatest problem in Taylor County and the world?lostness. The problem of lostness unifies our churches because God has given us the solution to this world's problem which is the gospel. Together, we take the good news of Christ's work in His crucifixion and resurrection knowing we must engage in the ministry of reconciliation "as workers together with Him" (2 Corinthians 5:15-21;6:1).
           What our churches did in training and preparing for the new church year in what we called "The Hot August Nights" proved to get us "revved up" for the new church year. I want to share with you some of the events our churches and association have going on as we begin this new church year with a kingdom focus.
           On the second weekend of September, I'm stoked that I'll be leading a Bible study and Church Growth conference at Salem that I call a TEAM Revival. God ignited the wonderful team at Pleasant Grove Baptist church a few months back when we participated in a TEAM Revival. God's team at Pleasant Grove shared with many of our churches the joy of ministry they are experiencing by hosting the Lifeway training event that helped us to become more effective in growing disciples.
           On Saturday evening September 10th, Calvary Baptist Church will be hosting a Wild Game Banquet with a wonderful speaker, Jay Watkins, who is the pastor of Redland Baptist Church in Valdosta and a NAMB trustee. This time promises to be a great tool to minister and reach men in our community. Jay's church reaches many children, youth, and men in South Georgia through their extraordinary outdoor ministries and Camp Rock. You will be amazed how God transformed this little country church into a dynamite outreach center becoming a key example of how a church grows when you look at the world through the eyes of Jesus.
           Oakland Baptist Church plans to celebrate their homecoming with revival services and a big community, Taylor County feed with mullet, swamp cabbage, and everything else that we expect here in Taylor County. I know you wouldn't want to miss this event. Many of our churches are also preparing for mission trips, outreach efforts, and construction projects to help them to share the gospel and reach the world.
           We look with eager expectation as God allows our association and churches to give birth to a new church to reach the Spanish speaking peoplewho are moving into our community. Make this a major prayer focus as we seek to join what God is doing to reach these people through us.

           Always remember we work together to do more for our Lord!
