The recent Alabama Baptist State Convention theme was PRAY. It was a joy to do just that throughout the gathering. Eastern Shore BC hosted the Pastor’s Conference on Monday, as well as, the Convention Tuesday and Wednesday. Each of the current Convention Officers were elected to a second term. President, Travis Coleman, Prattville, ‘sort-of one of our own’, John Thweatt, Pell City, as 1st. Vice President, and Tim Cox, Chelsea, as 2nd. Vice President. I was privileged to represent EBA. Associations across our state, are vital to The State Convention. They value the relationship with every association and work extremely close with each one. Several resolutions were passed. Prayer for returning missionaries, protecting the unborn, defending religious liberty, as well as, opposing privatization of alcohol sales, were among them.
I pray that each of you experience a blessed Thanksgiving, remembering those who are in desperate situations . . . always sharing the love of Christ!
Gary, Assn. Dir. of Missions
