When you receive your ACP Packet, please make sure and get it to your ACP contact person as soon as possible. This ACP is the way our denomination collects statistical and leadership info on our churches. The GTBA also uses it frequently to communicate with the 65 churches in our association. Please be sure the information you give is accurate and up to date! You can input your info online, or we can do it for you.

 

Friday, September 9th, deadline.

If you do not receive your ACP or you need assistance in completing your ACP, please contact us at  662-328-6802.

Seminary Extension

New Orleans Baptist Theological 

The New Orleans Baptist Seminary and the Golden Triangle Baptist Association are sponsoring an extension class for ministerial training beginning Monday, August 22, 2016, at the FBC, Starkville, in the Applegate Building.  The 8-week class will meet each Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. with the exception of Labor Day, and end on October 17, 2016.  The course of study will be Discipling Church Members

This ministerial training is one of eight classes in a seminary certificate program for a person who does not have a college degree and is seeking training for church leadership and knowledge of the Bible.  It is designed to give an overview of helpful training to ministers and laypersons in our area. The instructors will be Dr. Bill Duncan and Dr. Lee Brand. 

The class is open to anyone interested in gaining more knowledge of the Bible and skills in ministry.  In an average class setting, about half of the students are lay-people and bi-vocational church leaders.

For credit toward a certification of graduation, the fee per course is $100.  If a person would like to audit the course for knowledge and information, the fee is $50 per course.

If you are interested and desire more information, please contact Bill Duncan at 662-323-6448.
