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.

 

 

The GTBA Associational Team wants to take this opportunity to thank FBC, West Point- Dale Funderburg; FBC, Columbus- Shawn Parker; FBC, Starkville-Chip Stevens and these Church families for hosting the Tell Me Rallies here in our Counties. “Tell Someone” our story of Jesus. We heard wonderful music and an inspiring message from Dr. Jim Futral at each location. Thank you for working so hard. And may we listen for the Lord to“Tell Me” where He can use me-- to “Tell Someone” my story of Jesus. There are folks all around who need to hear our story of what Jesus has done for us. Let’s be prepared.

Vacation Bible School

LifeWay, Tupelo, VBS Window of Ordering

*February 1st  --  April 28th*

Vacation Bible School is coming to a Church near You! The Association is excited to announce that we will once again be partnering with the LifeWay Bookstore in Tupelo to bring resources to you and in return the association receives a 15% commission! Placing your order during these dates allows LifeWay to give the Association this commission. All orders are to be done electronically through the GTBA office. Also, the 15% commission is good for ANY VBS CURRICULUM that the Tupelo,LifeWay store carries: LifeWay-Galactic Starveyor; Abingdon—Super God; Cokesbury—Hero Central; Concordia—Mighty Fortress; Group—Maker Fun Factory; Group—Passport to Peru; Group—Rome; Regular Baptist Press—Over the Moat. Call or email the office and we will send you the electronic form to fill-out and return to us. We will then send it to Tupelo and your order can be shipped or held for you to pick up. We will need your electronic order with your LifeWay account number, a contact person, and how you will be receiving the order…you may also make multiple orders during this period of time.

The GTBA Galactic Starveyor VBS Conference is scheduled for March 28th, hosted by Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, 1383 Pleasant Hill Road, Columbus. We will begin at 6:30 p.m. and finish up at 8:30 p.m. Do you realize how important VBS really is? Let me name 4 reasons to consider VBS: 1.) VBS is a dependable ongoing ministry…..VBS can be a short-term event with long-term results. 2.) VBS creates lasting memories…..it is a special event that creates memories that help lock Bible truths in a child’s heart. 3.) VBS is an opportunity to share the gospel….we are laying biblical foundational truths--it is an intentional evangelistic opportunity. 4.) VBS is an event that you can customize…..however you approach the event, at your church, an off-campus/community site--- the purpose is sharing the good news about Jesus!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IS THE RESOURCE and We are Here to Help.

Email us your VBS director’s contact information, keep us connected, and we will guide you through the details. Thank you!
