Pastor’s Thoughts to You
A “Minister of Education and Family”
would help the church grow by focusing
on Sunday School and outreach. He
would also help us find and recommend
age-group ministers— for preschool,
grade school, middle school, and high
school.
Alabama Baptist Pastors’ Conference.
His church has five campuses now with
two more under construction. The total
membership is 65,000. They baptize
3,000 per year. He shared the “secret”
of their growth— emphasizing ministry
to those 18 and younger.
Do you know or have you heard of a
minister experienced and effective in
helping a church grow through church
education programs and age-group ministries? Please submit the name, how to
make contact, and/or a resume.
If we get children involved in church,
they will usually come to believe in
Christ, because “Jesus loves the little
children” and they love Him. Parents
will come to a church that loves their
children. Since faith comes by hearing
the Word of God, parents will be saved,
too.
Pray for this search process. We hope
that by early in the new year, we will
have a minister ready to recommend for
the church to consider for a call.
Dr. Ed Young, Pastor of Second Baptist
Church, Houston, spoke at last week’s
In seeking a Minister of Education and
Family and then age-group ministers,
we seek children and their parents for
Christ.
I love you,
Brother Allan
PS: Later I will tell you about the nine
mission projects adopted for 2015. Our
next “mission project” is the Lottie Moon
Christmas Offering which kicks off on
November 30. Our goal is $40K. (Last
year’s goal was $36K; we gave $55K!)
