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.

Highlights from the 2019 GTBA Fall Meeting hosted by: Fairview, Columbus
 
              In attendance for the Fall Meeting we had a total attendance of 145+. We had 30 of our 66 churches represented and 22 of our GTBA Pastors! Clay county had 8 out of their 15 churches represented. Lowndes had 13 out of 28, and Oktibbeha had 9 out of 22. In the business time we elected new officers to serve for the 2019-2022 term, and a new 2020 budget was approved. Also, with great joy, the Watch Care committee recommend that the 3-B (Bought By the Blood) Cowboy Church be brought under watch care for the one-year period. The pastor of this church is Hermon Trulove. The vote passed with unanimous encouragement for the work.
     Brother Russell answered three questions in presenting his report of the association: What are they calling me these days? We are called AMDs. All you need to know about me is that I love your church and that I’m willing to do whatever I can to help you. Call me if you need me. 
     To the second question, what is the value of having an association? We are about the Mission and we can be more effective together. We can do missions by ourselves, but not what 60+ other churches can do working Together! When it comes down to it, we are not part of the mission of God for ourselves; we are part of this mission to be a blessing.
     To the third question, what does it take to make a strong association? It takes the active leading presence of the Holy Spirit, and it takes people in all of our churches who love to serve God together. That’s it. You and God are what it takes to make a strong association. Unity is also vitally important because the strength of the body is in the coordination and the cooperation of its members. One huge way we have cooperated together is by answering a simple request for K-cups so that Chaplain Scott Edwards could provide coffee to the deployed troops and, in that way, invest in them.
     Chaplain Scott Edwards thanked the churches for all the K-cups received and then briefly shared a parallel of chaplain ministry to our everyday evangelical efforts to share the love of Christ with the people at our work, school, and everywhere else we go. We read from Luke 10: 1-9. Sharing the gospel is always the goal of our ministry, but we will produce greater fruit if we follow Jesus model.
     At the conclusion of Brother Scott’s message, he presented to us a framed flag that had flown over Kuwait during his deployment, and a plaque commemorating more than 6,000 cups of coffee that contributed to the success of the mission. Both gifts will be prominently displayed in the office. It was a wonderful meeting, and you were missed if you weren’t able to be there.
