MBA 96th Annual Meeting

Posted by Rick on November 4, 2008

The 96th Annual Meeting of the Muskogee Baptist Association is now in the history books.  First, I want to say that it is a pleasure being in an association where we can truly enjoy the company of the believers.  It is great to laugh and not take ourselves seriously, but to know that we take the Task of taking the Gospel to a lost and dying world seriously!

First Baptist Church, Hulbert, OK, graciously hosted the Meeting and everyone was impressed by the hospitality.  We enjoyed the opportunity to inspect their new worship facilities.  They provided a delicious supper of pulled pork with sides and a wonderful selection of desserts!

Rev John Curtis provided the annual Doctrinal Sermon, based on Ephesians 5.  He encouraged the church to BE the church!

I preached the annual Missions Sermon, based on II Kings 7:3-9.  You can listen to it here, or by clicking on the link below.  I encouraged believers to not keep the Good News to themselves.

Rev. Danny Gandarra, pastor of First Baptist, Fort Gibson preached the Annual Sermon, based on Isaiah 61:1-3.  He encouraged everyone to have a “Jesus Ministry”.

To do justice to the content of Bro John’s and Bro Danny’s sermon, please go HERE and HERE to listen to them yourselves.

All business was conducted without controversy.  Except for the election of second vice moderator.  That proved for some comic relief.  I was elected to serve as the Moderator for the next year.

God has truly blessed us with a wonderful Association to be involved with!  Kudos to DOM Bill Sherrill, our Associate DOM Claudio Valencia, and especially to the Associational Secretary, Wanda Haley!

Bro Rick
