acrThank you to all who participated in completing their Annual Church Reports! These reports help us all to strategically make a difference for God’s Kingdom within our communities. At this time 29 out of 50 -58%- churches have turned in their reports. If your church has not yet completed the ACR please do so as soon as possible as we have made arrangements with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board to receive them. Thanks again.


Pastors roundtable


Our quarterly Pastors/Ministers Roundtable discussion will take place on Thursday, October 13th, at 10:00 a.m. at the DBA office. All pastors are invited to attend. Please put this date on your calendar, make plans to join us, and feel free to bring guests.






PEDALS FOR PASTORS Each day pastors in India travel great distances by foot to reach people for Christ. In an effort to help them grow the Kingdom, DBA’s Missionary Team is challenging each church to purchase one bicycle for a pastor by year’s end. Each bike costs $80 (please make checks payable to the Daniell Baptist Association).  For more information, please see the attached flyer.




stayDo you want your children to be actively serving in the local church when they turn thirty and beyond? Our upcoming Why They Stay conference with Steve Parr on October 11th at 6:30 p.m. at FBC Mt. Vernon can help! Much has been written about younger adults and their departure from church involvement. Concerned parents and church leaders want to know what has caused them to depart. Instead of asking why young adults are leaving the church, Parr and Crites conducted a national research project of those who grew up in church and are still serving faithfully. They studied why they have stayed and the results are compelling. In this conference with Dr. Parr you will learn as a parent, pastor, or church leader specific actions that you can take to make a definitive difference in whether or not the fifteen-year-olds attending your church now are still attending and serving when they turn thirty.



Week_of_Prayer_Web_copyPlease be in prayer for this week’s Churches of the Week:

  • Higgston Baptist (pastor Allen Rae)
  • Hope Baptist (pastor Curtis Wells)
  • Journey (pastor Jason Corbett)


Quote of the Week

It’s not enough for Christians merely to recognize that the world isn’t what it ought to be and that people are suffering in ways they shouldn’t have to suffer.” Instead, our “sorrow and indignation” should prompt us to act in ways that “subvert” that brokenness.” -Ed Stetzer

Blessed to serve,
