 WMMU TBA Association Team Report 

The TBA WMMU would like to thank everyone who participated in any way in the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus through all the missions and ministries of the Transylvania Baptist Association by linking hearts and hands. WMMU had several meetings to plan.  We mostly plan by way of emails.  March 16, 2019 TBA “WMMU Women’s Conference” at Brevard First Baptist Church. We thank Brevard First for offering their building and all who helped so much. We had about 50 in attendance. 

 The WMMU also had a “Senior Saints Celebration Conference” at Carr’s Hill Baptist Church June 22, 2019. Thanks to the Association WMMU Team and all who helped in any way with the Senior Saints Celebration Conference.  We estimate about 70 people attended. Thanks to the choirs at Carr’s Hill, Boylston and Rocky Hill for bringing Christ honoring music to our hearts. Thanks to Lynn Goldsmith and Donna White, Praise Team at Blantyre Baptist, for adding to the blessing of music. Thanks to Pastor Alan Perry and Pastor Todd & Shelia Alewine for leading breakout sessions. Thanks to Ms. Angie Gregg from NCBAM (Baptist Aging Ministry) and Mr. Keith Dixon from BRH (Baptist Retirement Homes) for speaking with encouragement and inspiration to all who attended. 

 The TBA WMMU also began “Secret Servants” who daily prayed for our TBA Pastor’s Wives.  Most of the Secret Servants are other pastor’s wives, however, some are church members. All pastor’s wives, families and churches are prayed for everyday by several people.

 One of TBA WMMU’s ministries is to minister to the Pastor’s/Missionary wives and families.  We email and text from time to time letting pastor’s/missionaries wives and families know we are praying for them.  We have daily prayers for the churches, staff and missionaries.  We send cards and call from time to time. We had a time of food, fun and fellowship with Pastor and Missionary wives and their families at Pizza Hut June 26, 2018, had a time of food and fellowship December, 2018, July 30, 2019, and again, October 1, 2019.  TBA WMMU is currently planning a breakfast January 11, 2020 and February 8, 2020 at the Baptist Center at 8:00 for pastors’ wives and families. More dates will be put on the calendar in the future.

  We thank Blue Ridge Baptist Church who offered to host the “Pastor and Family Appreciation” Dinner  October 1, 2019 (Tuesday) at 6:00 p.m.  There were several other churches who participated to help make this a memorable evening.  We thank those who planned, provided, served and cleaned up the meal. We thank Pastor Dave and Ann Tucker who made and donated gifts for all the pastors.  We thank others who gave gifts also. We thank the Mullis family for providing special worship and praise.  Thank you to each who are always helping and serving behind the scenes.  There were 40 plus in attendance including 16 pastors.

 The TBA WMMU helped TBA churches who ask for help, resources, advice and suggestions.  The TBA WMMU also helps many in our community. Many of our Baptist Center volunteers keep all the TBA churches and pastors/families in our daily prayers. We also have a prayer list at the Baptist Center for anyone who lets us know they would like prayer.  Volunteers at the Baptist Center are learning more about the TBA, and in turn, sharing with their churches how we can help their churches and other churches which is strengthening our Association. Ladies and men from the following churches are and have at one time or another volunteered in the office on a regular basis and filling-in:  Blue Ridge, Boylston, Calvary, Cedar Mountain, Cherryfield, Dunn’s Rock, East Fork, Enon, First Baptist, Middle Fork, Morningside, Mt. Moriah-Calvert, Oak Grove, Pisgah Forest, Rocky Hill, Shoal Creek, Temple, Turkey Creek, Zion.
