Weekly Pastors’ Conference

Posted by Rick on August 6, 2007

I attended my first Pastors’ Conference at the Muskogee Baptist Association today.  It was a good time of fellowship, but the highlight for me was twofold.  Bill Sherrill provided the program with an overview of how the Association functions and what their ministries are.  The MBA Disaster Relief Team demonstrated their abilities by cooking and providing lunch for the pastors.

I am very impressed with our Association and it dedication to supporting the churches within the Association to fulfill the Great Commission.  I hope that one day, as a church, we will be in a position to raise our monthly percentage of contribution to our local association.  We are currently giving 2%.  Our contribution to the Cooperative Program is currently 5%.

As I spoke about on Sunday night, Acts 1:8 says that we “shall be witnesses” or better “will be witnesses in Wagoner, the rest of Oklahoma, the entire United States, and even to the rest of the world.  Our participation with the MBA assists our requirement to be witnesses right here at home.

Pray for Bro Bill Sherrill, Bro Gary McKeen, Bro Claudio Valencia, Bro Bill Haynes, Wanda Haley, and Cheryl Monroe, as they fulfill their mission statement:  Working together to assist and strengthen churches on mission.

Bro Rick
