But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.(Acts 1:8)
Missionaries in Every Church
01 January 2014
The theme for this year is a direct reflection from the depths of my heart. I really want to see “Missionaries in Every Southern Baptist Church in North Arkansas”. Jesus came to the end of His earthly ministry and He said to those standing nearby “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8.
Jesus’ earthly ministry came to an end, and as I start my 20th year of my ministry with this association, my ministry here is coming to an end. I have had a great time serving the churches of North Arkansas Baptist Association, but God has made it clear to me that it is time I step down and pass the torch to another. On July 1, 2014, I will enter the next season of my life, but I have not done the job that Jesus called me to do if I have not made it clear to each of you that Jesus died for the ungodly. We need missionaries that will take the message, “The Good News” to the ungodly, to “The Lost”.
“Missionaries in Every Church” can become a reality if God’s people who are called by His name will do what Jesus said. Go! Go! Go! – to the Nursing Home, to the hurting, to the children, to the jails, to the hungry, -to the WORLD.
Last week we had one of the biggest mission events in Arkansas history. Thousands of missionaries came to the Harrison area to show Jesus. Harrison saw that the church really had “Left the Building.” Missionaries from many churches across the state of Arkansas were here touching lives. Many of those lives would have never been touched if God’s people had not taken Jesus’ message of Acts 1:8 seriously. We need more missionaries in every church. Please embrace our theme this year and become a missionary from your church.
The churches of Northwest Arkansas are serving their church family with urgency. We
realize the time is short and the laborers are few. We at North Arkansas Baptist Association
are coming along side our churches to help them achieve their God given vision to carry out the
Great Commission in their community.
We are praying for each church and their pastor.
