Associational Missionary

How May We Serve You?

 

MY HEART AS YOUR ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONARY

To God be the Glory for what He is doing through the Transylvania Baptist Association! Heaven rejoices with every person who comes to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior through the sharing of the Gospel. Thanks to all who share with me souls saved and people baptized in your church. Nothing brings greater joy to me as Associational Missionary than to hear of Gospel Fruit. We WELCOME the newest pastor to TBA, Pastor Cliff McKnight and his family, Oak Grove Baptist Church.

 We thank God for all who attended the “REFOCUSING YOUR S.S. AND BIBLE STUDY MINISTRY FOR GROWTH” training at East Fork Baptist Church on Saturday June 29. Thanks to East Fork for their hospitality. God gave us people from 10 TBA churches plus people from two neighboring associations. The Lord has opened the door for me to do at least two local church versions of this Refocusing Your S.S. in TBA and one in a church outside our association. God has also opened the door for me to teach Refocusing Your S.S. in two other Associations. To God be the Glory! 

 A companion to the Refocusing Your S.S. is TEACHING THE BIBLE TO WIN THE LOST AND GROW THE SAVED. It will be provided for TBA in September. It is designed for any and all who teach the Bible in S.S. Teaching helps will be provided for teachers of preschool, children, youth and adults. If you desire to be more useable to God as a S.S. teacher prayerfully plan to attend TEACHING THE BIBLE TO WIN THE LOST AND GROW THE SAVED.

 I praise God for giving me the privilege to serve TBA each week:

¨ God has blessed me to have opportunity to meet with a group of Pastors regularly in a discipleship context each week.

¨ God has blessed me to attend 4 Prayer Meetings each week where prayers are lifted up for Pastors, Churches and other needs.

¨ God has blessed me to teach a Mission Bible Study each week at the Baptist Center and another Bible study at College Walk where the Gospel is shared each time.

¨ God has blessed me to humbly pray early each morning for Pastors and Churches.

¨ God has blessed me to teach Adult VBS class at Turkey Creek.

¨ God has blessed me to minister to and have teaching/training sessions for Pastors and Churches as God opens doors..

The Lord is still blessing and working in the new Cove Church that the Lord is raising up on Nicholson Creek Road. Brad (the son) and Ed (the father) are being used of God to Glorify the Lord and not themselves. God is using the Cove Church to impact their community with the love, grace and mercy of God. Cove Church is financially supporting the Cooperative Program and the Transylvania Baptist Association. Cove Church is connecting with and ministering to those in jail in Transylvania County

The Lord is also working at the CHURCH AT SEA OFF (formerly Dunn’s Creek Baptist). God is using Pastor Michael Childers. We are grateful to God for support provided by First Baptist and the NC Baptist Convention

I am grateful to God for the prayers of the TBA churches and allowing God to work through you to magnify His Name and prosper the Gospel in the community surrounding Cove Church. 

 Please keep in mind and prayers that we are living in a county with at least 17,000 unsaved people. We need all the churches asking God to use them to see the “fields white unto harvest” and to reach our county with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray for God to use your local Church. Surrender to be a Witness for Christ. Surrender to serve the Lord and the Great Commission at your church. God is desiring to use ALL OUR CHURCHES to impact Transylvania County with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is not “willing that any should perish” but that all be saved. Please pray against the wicked spiritual forces that seek to keep people lost and to destroy people’s lives. Remember that “Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”

 As always, please know that we at the Baptist Center are your servants to assist your church in any way in becoming ALL that God Wills for it to be for the Sake of the Gospel. Please let me know when people are saved through your ministry and church so that I can rejoice and share all that God is doing for His Glory!
