Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,


     Bro. Oliver Hawkins served our association as Director of Missions for a number of years before he passed that torch over to me in 2006. As many of you know Bro. Hawkins went home to be with the Lord June 20th at the age of 92 years old. His life was celebrated at BethlehemBaptistChurch by family and many friends who had known him through these years as a pastor, DOM, and a brother in Christ. Some had known him as a teacher and principal from Oneida Baptist Institute.



     Bro. Hawkins was a highly educated man graduating from Hardinsburg High School and attending CampbellsvilleCollege, Georgetown College, Western Kentucky University, and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 



     Bro. Hawkins served as pastor at two of our churches in the Central Baptist Association. He was pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church, and  Mt. Olivet Baptist Church.



     Bro. Hawkins was a godly man. I thank God for his leadership while serving as our DOM and I count it a privilege of having known him as a friend. One of the ways you can honor him is by donating to Oneida Baptist Institute. Bro. Hawkins had a very fond love for the work and ministry there. Your donation will help to keep that work and ministry alive for years to come. He invested in the lives of young people for many years. By donating you too will invest in the lives of the young people who attend school there.



     Bradfordsville has been blessed with a wonderful group of people that have been working at their church and in the community. These people are called the Mississippi Nail Benders. Over the last month they have been building a new church and serving the community through witnessing, leading in VBS at Brookhaven Mission, picking up garbage in the community, and just spreading the love of Jesus Christ. They have been preparing meals at the community center and inviting people to come and join them for supper. WDRB Fox 41 news out of Louisville came out and did a story about their work. The local newspapers have been reporting about them, and God just continues to bless through their story. If you haven’t been over to Bradfordsville Baptist Church lately you might want to take a drive over that way. You would be surprised what has been accomplished in just a month’s time. Our annual Fall meeting will be held there in October. It is very likely that we will be meeting in their new building. I know the people in the community are very excited and I am excited for them. God is doing some really great things in Bradfordsville right now.



     Be sure to mark Saturday August 24th down on your calendar for our association Sunday School Leadership Training. Bro. George Yates our Sunday School Director will be leading this event. We have not set a place to meet just yet but it will be a morning event that will conclude by noon. More information will be sent out soon for your church to announce and post for everyone to hear and see about it.



     Our next association executive board meeting will be August 4th 2:30 PM at Bethlehem Baptist Church.



Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
