School has started! Some parents are glad and the
kids are sad. The church year (2016-17) is also coming to an end. I hope
this has been a very rewarding and productive year in your local church.
If not, I pray that God will encourage you and motivate you for a
better new year. One thing is for sure, God will do his part!
If I or the Association office can assist you with
anything, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We are here to serve
you and your church. That is our purpose, our calling, and our joy.
Please don't miss out on an excellent opportunity
to be trained to lead and be a more effective leader in your church.
Thursday, September 14th at Jemison First Baptist church (7:00 - 8:30
P.M.) is the date and place for our Annual Mega Training Conference.
We are featuring two NEW conferences this
year. Church Security Team Training
and Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness. The need for
this training is a sad reality of life in the time we are living.
Churches and Christians are now targets for extremists of all sorts. Our
children are targets of sexual predators. We must take every step
possible to protect our churches, our children and ourselves.
PLEASE send at least one person from
your church to learn how you can make your church a safe place
Pastors, Deacons, Men's Ministry leaders,
Sunday School and Discipleship Directors: Daniel Edmonds and
Larry Hyche from our Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, have
collaborated to produce a brand new
conference for all of you. Do you want your church to be a DISCIPLE
MAKING church (isn't that the Great Commission)? If so, this conference
is the place to be on September 14th. Pastor, may I say it one more
time, this is BRAND NEW!
I promise, this will be an hour and a half of your time well spent.
I will be looking for you.
Thank you once again for 20 incredible years as
your Director of Missions and all the support you have given us. I am
proud to serve you and serve with you through the CBA!
Just a thought.....

against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society."
