Helping our churches to fulfill the Great Commission
 
 

 About Us:
     
 Welcome to the GTBA

Recognizing both our dependence on the Lord Jesus Christ and our interdependence in carrying out His mission on earth, we exist to assist our member churches in fulfilling the Great Commission by providing: Resources, Leadership Development, Coordination of Cooperative Missions and Encouragement! We are affiliated with the Mississippi Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.

Golden Triangle Baptist Association Spring Meeting Highlights

    

        We are so grateful to Calvary Baptist Church in West Point for the wonderful way they hosted our GTBA family. And we are grateful to those who joined us to participate in the evening and make it special. Thank you for your efforts and the spirit of fellowship you brought to the worship service! Also, thank you to Dr. Jim Futral, Executive Director-Treasurer of the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board for powerfully delivering God’s word.

Please make plans to join us for our Fall Meeting on

Tuesday, October 15, 2019, at 7:00pm,

hosted by Fairview Baptist Church, Columbus.

The time has come for World Changers to return to the Golden Triangle Baptist Association!

June 10-15, 2019

 

Remember this ministry continues to be a huge blessing for many people in our area by providing free materials and labor for those in need and provides opportunities for service and discipleship for the teenagers that come to serve. (https://worldchangers.lifeway.com/projects/locations/Columbus-MS)

 

                          This year the theme is “Uncharted.” As always, the opportunity to be involved in this mission effort is available for all GTBA Churches. WC will be hosting projects in three counties (Oktibbeha, Lowndes and Clay). The GTBA will need association churches to assist with crew lunches, funds for materials, leadership to help form strategy and, most importantly, projects for the student missionaries to serve.

 

Please pray for World Changers and the people that will be in the vicinity of these projects. God uses this ministry in mighty ways to change people’s lives!

 

If you have any questions or would like to sign up to serve, please call the GTBA and let us know what you are willing to do. We will do our best to make it happen. 

   

*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Get ready for Mission VBS! We need you this year!

 

        It is time again to prepare for the GTBA’s annual Mission VBS. This project has been and continues to be a great way to reach into our communities with the Gospel. Last year, we were able to reach 260 children at various community centers in Columbus/ Lowndes County and at the Boys & Girls Club in Starkville.

 

 

 

We use a light, fun, no pressure VBS atmosphere to engage local children. This really is a mission to the future. One of our site leaders has remarked that several of the students who made professions of faith at Mission VBS in years past are continuing in their faith and growing from year to year. Seeing children come to faith and grow in faith over the years is part of the great reward.

 

 

 

Please consider being a part of this. We will continue to communicate with you about the sites that are available and to ask you for help. If you would like more information before then, please contact us at (662)328-6802 or goldentriangleba@bellsouth.net.

 

 

 

Mission VBS 2019 is scheduled for June 24-26, but you are free to participate at any time during the summer. We look forward to seeing you this summer!
