Highlights from the 2017 GTBA Fall Meeting

hosted by: FBC, West Point

 

              On the business front, nominating committee report and a new budget were adopted. In attendance for the Fall Meeting were 122 Messengers and 48 non-messengers for a total attendance of 174. We had 37 of our 65 churches represented and 28 of our GTBA Pastors! Clay county had 11 out of their 15 churches represented. Lowndes had 15 out of 28 and Oktibbeha had 11 out of 22. In the Fall Meeting we welcomed Tenth Street Fairlawn Baptist Church into full membership and fellowship, while also welcoming Starkville Christian Church under Watch Care for the coming year…there is much excitement as we increase our membership and fellow laborers in the Harvest. Brother Russell expressed what an humbling and exciting experience the first months of coming as the new Associational Missions Director of Golden Triangle has been---wonderful churches with a renewed spirit of extending the Kingdom of God. We have had opportunities to serve through Disaster Relief in Texas and Florida. CWJC is in a transitional time as Mrs. Rita Usher has resigned after 41/2 years of guiding this ministry. A gift was presented to Rita in appreciation of her tireless efforts with the ladies of CWJC. The CWJC Search Team was announced: Nathan Taylor, Starkville; Mary Ingram, West Point; Jackie Pruett, Starkville; Doran Henry, West Point; and AMD, Russell Mord. Please keep them in your prayers. Our hearts were informed and challenged by Dr. Jerry Rankin as he brought the message for the evening, “Insight into Spiritual Warfare”. May your faith and testimony, even unto death, be to be sold out to Jesus Christ, knowing the Victory has already been won!
