annaul meeting

WOW. What an exhilarating and encouraging night of our Annual meeting on October 23!! We conducted business, met with partners, heard about the direction of our association, and prayed. The end of our time together was the sweetest moment for me when we came together and laid hands on our leaders and prayed.

We joined together and prayed!!

I can think of no better way to build relationships than praying with and for one another. It was a beautiful night and I came away encouraged that together we can saturate and transform every life (beginning in the Lowcountry) with the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We had 18 out of 28 pastors present and over 125 people join together to begin the next step in the life and work of our association.

I appreciate Okatee Baptist Church and pastor Tim Tomlinson for hosting our 216 Annual Meeting and being so gracious for their service to make it a great evening. I am grateful to Evelyn Massey for providing us with food.

I appreciate our State Convention partners who took time out to connect with us: Dr. Gary Hollingsworth (Executive Director), Jon Jamison (Missions Mobilization), Scott Shields (Association Liaison), and James Nugent (Church Planting).    Continue reading...
