  • A Note from our Associational Mission Strategist
           Alice, in Alice in Wonderland, said to Cheshire Cat: "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to walk from here?" The Cat replied: "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
           The dictionary has a big word for this idea-intentionality. And there are shorter words, such as purpose, goal, objective, or even plan.
           The scriptural truth, and the model for it in the life of Jesus, calls for another word: mission. This is what drives the Taylor Baptist Association! In a dialog with the Pharisees, Jesus said, "For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth" (John 18:37 NKJV).
           God has called our churches in the TBA to pursue the directions set by our Lord. To win persons to faith in Christ and lead them to do His will and work in the world with the same cause or mission. Your association is here to assist your church into fulfilling this bold mission!
           What a joy it has been to personally witness what God has been doing in our churches through VBS. Getting a chance to lead the Missions Workshop proved to be the highlight of my summer. I found our SPARK mission study to be an exciting and rewarding way to study about our missionaries.
           Our children and youth learned how Southern Baptists reach out to a lost world as missionaries teach God's Word, witness their faith, and minister to a hurting world. From these VBS students I believe will come missionaries in the future-and support for our missionaries.
           Joy overwhelms me as I see the spirit of revival taking place in our churches with many people coming to the Lord, the steady increase in the number of believers in our discipleship programs, many being called into the ministry, and the baptismal waters in our churches being use often.
           Pray for a possible new work God may allow us to plant here in Taylor County. Many of our churches feel the need to reach the world that is moving into our area. The growth in the Hispanic community is obvious and like everyone, they need Jesus and a church family where they can hear and understand the gospel message.
           A listening church tunes in to community needs. I rejoice that the churches of the TBA understand our mission, and are ready to probe new ministry possibilities. I just can't wait to see what God plans to do through us next!

  • Drummer Needed
    Midway Baptist Church is in need of a drummer for their praise band. If you or anyone you know would be interested please contact Midway: 850-584-8173

  • Spot Light on Missions:
    I want to challenge every person praying daily for missions! This challenge seeks to engage the churches in the TBA with Jesus' intentions for His followers: "Go...tell...disciple...pray." I rejoice in the mission trips, mission projects, mission prayer emphases, and mission engagements planed and performed by our churches this summer. I want to repeat what Paul said about the church at Thessalonica in 2 Thessalonians 1:4 when he said, "We ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God" (2 Thessalonian 1:4 NASB). We have a couple of our churches praying and preparing to start a Bible study in the Hispanic community. As we STRENGTHEN MISSIONS in our area pray God would give us the opportunity to plant a new work in the TBA. What a joy it is to give birth to new church!
