SAFETY/SECURITY TRAINING

 

Sponsored By: Mississippi Baptist Convention Board

  

Register today -  www.mbcb.org

 

 With the number of church-involved violent incidents like  Sutherland Springs skyrocketing around the country, the MBCB is taking steps to ensure churches here are prepared if such evil comes to their doors. The Board is sponsoring five sessions in January featuring one of the top church safety and security trainers in the U.S – Fort Sherman Academy from Pinehurst, Idaho. (www.fortsherman.org/)

  

“Fort Sherman Academy trains and supports organizations in faith-based security and risk management. We assist in the    furtherance of their mission by training them to better avoid, protect, and survive potential or actual adverse events thus    allowing them to reach every corner of the globe,” according to the academy’s web site.

  

The day-long seminars are scheduled from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. in the following locations:

 

-- Gulfport: January 8 at First Baptist Church.

 

-- Hattiesburg: January 9 at Main St. Baptist Church.

 

-- Batesville: January 22 at First Baptist Church.

 

-- Tupelo: January 23 at Harrisburg Baptist Church.

 

-- Byram: January 24 at Country Woods Baptist Church.

 

 

Registration is $25 per person and includes handouts and other materials. Lunch is also included. Seating is limited to 150    people at each venue with a maximum of five people per church, so early registration is encouraged. For more information and to register, visit www.mbcb.org

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

Battalion Chaplain Scott Edwards, a member of First Baptist Church in Starkville, is taking a cup of hot coffee in Jesus’ name with him when his unit, the 2-114th Field Artillery “Dragon” battalion, is deployed early this year. He plans to establish a “Dragon Java” coffee station in the Middle East as a way to minister to soldiers of the Mississippi Army National Guard, and you can help him reach our people in uniform by donating Keurig K-cups or money for purchasing K-cups.

 

“My hope through Dragon Java is to create a safe place near my counseling office where soldiers can come to enjoy a cup of coffee and visit with me,” Edwards said. “This allows me to minister to them through building relationships and providing encouragement as we all face deployment struggles in-country and back at home.”

 

  At the coffee station, soldiers will have access to Bibles and other Christian literature.

 

  The battalion, headquartered in Starkville, includes more than 400 soldiers from Columbus to Winona and down to Louisville. Many of them attend GTBA churches. If you would like to contribute K-cups or gift cards to this ministry, please bring them by the GTBA office.
