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.

Pastors’ Wives Appreciation Luncheon

 

  

        All GTBA pastors’ wives are invited to a special luncheon in their honor on Saturday, March 30, at East End Baptist Church at 380 Highway 50 West in Columbus. The event, presented by Poured Out Women’s Ministries (POWM), is set to begin at 11:30.

  

 

The luncheon will be the culmination of three weeks of prayer for pastors’ wives. March 10 marks the beginning of POWM’s “21 Days of Prayer and Praise for Pastors’ Wives,” and POWM leaders are asking GTBA churches to join them in prayer. If you would like a copy of the prayer guide, please contact the GTBA office at 328-6802.

 

 

POWM is a vehicle to use our gifts for ministry to women through Bible teaching, worship, and prayer during conferences and retreats. Its aim is to equip women to grow in an intimate relationship with Christ, to know and effectively use their gifts, to embrace servanthood, to   engage in spiritual warfare, and to carry out the Great Commission.

 

 

POWM encourages women to join together using their spiritual gifts to minister to the needs of other women. Founded on biblical  principles, its basis is the account of Gideon in Judges 6:11-21. Gideon prepares his gift for the angel of the Lord. He then presents his gift, places it down on the rock, and pours it out. We too must prepare the gifts God gives us, present them to Him on the altar, and pour          ourselves out through our gift.
