bike1PEDALS 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, the 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.

 

stay

Do 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.

 

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.

We are excited that Trinity Baptist Church is sending out missionaries! Please pray for Andy & Courtney Miller as they seek to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. See below for a correspondence from them to you.

 

 

Friends in the DBA,
We are members at Trinity Baptist Church in Vidalia and are currently raising support to go to Cusco, Peru as full-time missionaries. We are going next year with a group called Reaching & Teaching International Ministries (RTIM). We would love to share our ministry with any of you who are interested, either individually or to your church. Our purpose in going to Peru is to help disciple pastors who have never had the benefit of training in God’s Word. We pray that through our work, they will be fruitful in the ministry of the Gospel and able to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2). Also, Courtney is a pediatrician and will be ministering to families through medical practice. If you would like to know more about us and our ministry, here are some links and contact information. And most of all, please join us in praying that the Gospel will go forth in Peru!

Blessings in Christ,

On Monday, October 17th, FBC Soperton will be hosting our DBA messengers at our annual Fall Business session where we will enjoy a wonderful meal followed by God Stories and a message from God’s Word by Rev. Mike Everson of our Georgia Baptist Mission Board. If you are planning to join us for this special business session, please let us know by October 11th if not sooner.

please-pray Our Freedom House (transitional center for former inmates) will open early January of 2017 (if not sooner) and we need your help. Please begin praying for this ministry and specifically for a 12 or 15 passenger van or the $15,000 to purchase one. This is a great need as we cannot open that ministry center until the transportation issue is solved. Again, I don’t ask this lightly as I know God can and will meet this need but I also know it will be accomplish through prayer and the gifts of God’s people. If you have any questions please give us a call at 912-583-2713.

 

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

  • Friendship Baptist (pastor Paul Thompson)Week_of_Prayer_Web_copy
  • Grace Truth (pastor James Tippins)
  • Hammond Baptist (pastor Daniel Caraway)
  • Harmony Baptist (currently without a pastor)
  • Please be in prayer for Bobby Thompson (pastor of Tabernacle) in the death of his mother Betty Thompson.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
The gospel has done its work in us when we crave God more than we crave everything else in life and when seeing His kingdom advance in the lives of others gives us more joy than anything we could own. When we see Jesus as greater than anything the world can offer, we’ll gladly let everything else go to possess Him. -J.D. Greear

 

Blessed to serve,

Robby
