Pastor’s Perspective
Minister of Education, Youth & Children’s Ministry
- Rob Paul -
- Newlie Long –
In February of 2013 I was sitting in the choir loft at Shades
Mountain Baptist Church in Birmingham on the last night
of GIC. It had been a fantastic week of worship, meeting
and encouraging missionaries, and being challenged to give
and to go. That morning I had made a significant financial
commitment to give even though I did not have any regular
income at the time. As we finished singing the words, “You
are faithful, God, you are faithful,” I had an overwhelming
sense of God’s presence. With tears streaming down my
face, I committed to the Lord that If he ever gave me
another opportunity to pastor a church that I would be
faithful to lead that church to be totally engaged in missions
- to support missionaries and to send members out on
mission.
Our Acts 1:8 Strategy and having just-completed Global
Impact Celebration are the result of the commitment I made
during that GIC. Sunday night as I watched our folks
bringing their commitment cards to the altar, I had the sense
that life at First Baptist Church will never be the same. God
has given us a vision for making Jesus known from
Louisville to New York City, from the Mississippi Delta to
Haiti, from Birmingham, Alabama to Battambang,
Cambodia, and from Statesboro, Georgia to Debrecen,
Hungary and beyond.
As we take this incredible journey together, we are going to
experience God’s presence and power in ways we never
imagined because we will have to walk by faith. Rather
than asking, “What can I afford to do?” or “What do I have
time to do?” we will ask, “What is God calling me to do?”
realizing that if God calls me to do it, he will provide the
resources, the ability, and the opportunity to make it
happen. But we will have to be willing to take the next step
of faith, whatever it is. We have to be willing to leave the
shore and step into the boat with Jesus. You can’t take a
journey by standing still.
Rejoice!

Missions Spotlight
You had such an amazing
opportunity to meet many of
our partners. Some, like
Saul Paul from Cambodia
and Andrew Ward were
people we have been
partnering with. Others, like
Cary Christian Center and
Stephen Stallard from New
York were new partners that
we were just beginning to
get to know. The best part
was to watch as you
interacted with them and
relationships were being
formed. Out of the GIC
grew some specific
opportunities for us to serve:
