Annual Meeting 2020

Purchase Area Baptist Association

Association Mission Strategist Report
October 15, 2020, Annual Meeting

Zion 's Cause Baptist Church

Our associational Pastors and Executive Board Members from our churches met at
Zion’s Cause Baptist Church on October 15, 2020. 

All COVID-19 precautions were met and we had a great time of worship, information concerning upcoming events, and business of the association.

Dr. Charles Frazier brought an inspirational message to our group. Dr. Kenny Rager gave us information on how we can get ready for our part in the “Gospel To Every Home, 2021” being promoted and resourced by our Kentucky Baptist Convention Team.  I and our PABA team are working to contact our churches to assess how many of our churches are wanting to participate, how many resource packets, and other helps will be needed. We are available to come and talk to our pastors and churches to give information on the program we hope to take place sometime next year.  Please contact me if you want to be a part of reaching our communities with the Gospel in 2021.

We are grateful for your financial support of the association even in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic. Your financial support allows us to meet our mission support and helps throughout the year!

If you were not able to be present at our Annual Meeting, we recognized our new pastors coming into our PABA churches. 

     Allen Davidson – Community Fellowship Church

    Merrick Nunn – Westside Baptist Church

    Jeremy Hudgin – First Baptist Church Benton

    Clint Gentry – Elm Grove Baptist Church

We also welcomed Dexter Baptist Church and Pastor David Little to our fellowship.

There will not be a Thanksgiving Dinner for the International Students at MSU/BCM this year due to COVID. Those churches participating in the KBC Christmas Backpack mission can contact me and I will give you the drop off places to take them or I will come and pick them up and deliver them.  

If all goes well, we will have our January 15th Executive Board Meeting at First Baptist Church Benton. A 6:00 P.M. dinner and 7:00 P.M. meeting.

The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26
