Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,

                Greetings to everyone in the Central Baptist Association. I trust that you had a good Easter celebration and service with your families. Isn’t God just awesome to love us the way that He does? He gave us life through His Son, Jesus Christ. Without Jesus there cannot be much to look forward to in this life. Jesus came that we might have abundant life and to me that is just awesome!


            Our association has been busy this past couple of months. We participated in Children’s Ministry Day with approximately 20 children, several adults and youth that attended at Central Baptist Church. We made cards and put together care packages for those who serve and work in our communities during the weekend like policemen, firemen, emergency medical services and paramedics, etc. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped to make this event successful.


            The association annual meeting for the Spring was held at Mt. Freedom Baptist Church with approximately 60 people attending. We got to hear from Monica who is one of our own serving as an IMB Missionary. We can’t print everything about her because of safety reasons, but I can share with you that everyone was truly blessed by what they heard. She truly made it real to us about what we are doing when it comes to supporting the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and giving through the Cooperative Program. Thankyou Monica for serving the Lord, and thank you Central Association of Churches for giving to the Lord.


            We have just hosted Clear Creek Day in our association April 7th. We had five students that went out to Central Baptist Church, Mackville Baptist Church, Rockbridge Baptist Church, Willisburg Baptist Church, and Woodlawn Baptist Church. These young men truly were amazing. I am so glad that we could host this event and I look forward to next year when we will do it again. If you did not have one of these students please consider having one next year. It gives them and opportunity to serve and you will be blessed by their coming to your church.


            One of our own has been called away in God’s service to the Monroe Baptist Association. Bro. Johnnie Bailey has accepted the position of Director of Mission / Associational Missions Strategist. He started to work for them April 14th. Please keep Bro. Johnnie and his wife Vicki in your prayers and God uses them there in this new ministry.


            Bradfordsville Baptist Church has broken ground for their new church building. Please lift them up in prayer as they continue to build and grow. God is using a team called the Mississippi Nail Benders that will be sending teams here over the month of June to do construction for them. Two of these teams will consist of a total of 100 youth. Fifty will be coming June 1st -7th. While here during that week they will be helping us out at Brookhaven Mission doing VBS. Another fifty will be coming June 22nd – 28th and they will also be helping us out doing some more work at the mission. Please keep this in prayer that God will use it to reach people for Jesus Christ.


            I pray that God blesses you and your church family. As you gather ministry activities for this summer please let us know what God is doing at your church. Keep us informed so that we can pass on the good news into the association. Blessings!


Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
