MARCH/APRIL 2020 NEWSLETTER
Director of Missions Notes
I hope this newsletter finds you doing well today. My prayers are certainly with you as always. We have had a strong start to the new year. I want to mention to you a few things that we have taken part in already.
January 18th, we had a training event at Willisburg Baptist Church where Alan Witham from the Kentucky Baptist Convention came and taught a lesson on “Reclaiming Inactive Church Members.” We had around 25 people that attended representing ten of our churches from the Central Baptist Association.
Our Pastors breakfast was held at Stacy Ann’s Restaurant in Lebanon with nine attending plus our guest speaker: Terry Frazier from Sunrise Children’s Services. We had some good discussions about doing a church leadership training event for this Fall. This is something I think is needed for our churches and strongly encourage people to be praying about it and sending your Sunday School Teachers, Deacons, Church Officers, Music Directors, and Mission Leaders to. We will keep everyone updated when this will take place.
On February 15th we held Children’s Ministry Day at Springfield Baptist Church with 47 people attending and participating. We collected a huge amount of food for food pantries in the Lebanon and Springfield areas. It was an awesome day with the children learning all about ministering to their community and helping people in need.
March 1ST – 8TH is the Week of Prayer for North American Missions. Don’t forget to support the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Remember all your donations stays in North America helping to support the work of missions to our SEND Cities and many other ministries. We are not done with the Great Commission yet. There is still much work to be done and many people who need to be reached with the Gospel.
March 16th – 17th the REACH Evangelism Conference will be held at Walnut Street Baptist Church in Louisville. This is a two-day statewide gathering featuring top evangelistic leaders from around the country. The purpose of REACH is to encourage and inspire Kentucky Baptist leaders, serving in every area of church ministry, to be more personally passionate about evangelism and to guide churches they lead to become more evangelistically driven. REACH also provides a great opportunity to get away, reconnect with friends, and network with leaders who get you and understand what you do.
REACH will provide quality evangelistic equipping for all pastors, bivocational leaders, church planters, church staff, associational mission strategists, and all layleaders working with children, youth, music, young adults, evangelism, missions and women's ministry.

Our Annual Spring Meeting this year will take place on March 30th at Thompsonville Baptist Church. The meeting will start at 6:30 PM and conclude at 8:30 PM. We will not be having a meal this year. We do have a great meeting planned and we hope that you will put it on your calendar to attend. We will be having a gust speaker this year who will be coming to share with us about their ministry in Israel. Please encourage your members at you church to come and hear what God is doing in our association and also in the Holy Land. We look forward to seeing you at Thompsonville Baptist Church on this evening.
Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
