Helping our churches to fulfill the Great Commission
 
 

 About Us:
     
 Welcome to the GTBA

Seminary Extension

Our new Seminary Extension Class will start on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 7 p.m. The classes will be held at FBC, Starkville, 106 E. Lampkin Street, in the Applegate building. The new Bible book study will be on Matthew, which seeks to explain that Jesus is the King of the Jews. This study is for new, current, former and graduate students who might want to join us as we navigate through Matthew. This study will be a strong connection to the spring course, The Introduction to the Old Testament. Dr. Bill Duncan will be the instructor. $100 is the cost for those students seeking credit and $50 for non-credit. For more information call Dr. Duncan at 662-323-6448.

MSU BSU Disciple Now 2019
January 18-19
 
This event is open to any church in Starkville, West Point, or Columbus to participate with us.
 
Worship Schedule: Friday 8:00 p.m., Saturday 10:30 a.m., Saturday 7:30 p.m. 
Speaker: Sam Collier   Worship Leader: Josh Maze   Theme/Curriculum: Inside Out
 
· God calls us to serve and share His love with the people around us. If we’re being honest though, this doesn’t always come easy. But as we’ll see this weekend, the way we serve and love not only has the power to change and impact others’ lives, but our lives us as well. It can change the world—and us—from the inside out.
o Session 1 - Luke 10:29-37; Go and be for everyone.
o Session 2 - Isaiah 1:16-17; What we believe on the inside determines what we do on the outside
o Session 3 - Acts 1:8; Serving big begins at home.
Small group discussion materials will be provided to each church for them to use in their small groups. A student notebook will be provided to each participant.
 
Cost: each church collects the $ from their participants; after the event the cost of the worship services (band, speaker, hotel rooms, travel, BSU donation, etc.) is divided among the participants. Last year the cost was $16.89 per participant that each church paid. 
· $30 prior to Dec. 1 
· $40 after Dec. 1
Each church is free to use the $ how they see fit (paying the per person cost, t-shirts, food, small group leaders); each church charging the same amount has been very helpful in that we are all on the same page & it’s not cheaper or more expensive at any church
 
T-Shirts: We will do 1 design for the t-shirt, and it’ll be up to each church to place their order with Jason Stoker (Deep South and Co). Typically, your t-shirt order needs to be placed 3-4 weeks prior to the event. There will be a long sleeve & short sleeve option. Shirt cost are typically about $8 for short sleeve and $10-$12 for long sleeve.
 
Host Homes, Meals & Small Group Leaders: Each church is responsible for providing their own host homes, meals, and small group leaders.
 
For Questions & More Info: Neil Tullos, Youth Minister at First Baptist Church, Starkville, 662-323-5633

 HOT COFFEE IN JESUS NAME

Greetings from Camp Buehring, Kuwait!  Even though the temperature exceeds 110 degrees most days, we are certainly enjoying drinking the coffee that generous members of churches in the Golden Triangle Baptist Association are providing! Dragon Java has been a huge success, and I estimate that churches have provided over 3,000 cups of coffee since this past February! Your generous donations of K-Cups allow me to provide a cup of coffee to Soldiers who come to my office needing to discuss their life issues, Soldiers working the night shift and struggling to stay awake, commanders running between meetings and needing an energy boost, and a little glimmer of normalcy to many Soldiers here in a foreign land. Please consider continuing to support us through Dragon Java during the remaining months of our deployment, and know that your contributions - even through a cup of coffee - are making a difference in the Kingdom of Heaven. Our Soldiers prefer Keurig K-Cups of regular, bold, or Columbian blends (no decaffeinated or flavored coffee please).

Thanks again, and God bless!
