Association Newsletter - No Graphics

New Duck River Baptist Association News
November - December 2018
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year! Whatever season or month, I challenge you to be on mission for the Father: planting seeds, harvesting and making reproducing disciples.
Speaking of making disciples, it is NOT an option in the Great Commission of Jesus. Making Reproducing Disciples must be our priority for healthy, growing churches to be on mission. It is not too late to make disciples of children through the Bible Drills; students with Fuel2 or Gospel Project; by starting a small affinity group in the church, homes, communities, work. I’d be happy to train, assist and resource you for effective disciple-making. Just do it! Remember: Disciple-making isn’t disciple-making until the disciples disciple.
Winter is not a time of rest from being on mission. Many opportunities await participation, either as a tradition or a new project. Many churches participate in Fall Outreach, Revivals, Block Parties, Football 5th quarters, Thanksgiving Projects, Christmas projects (Shoe Boxes, musicals, special events), IMB Lottie Moon Week of Prayer events and more. Be on mission in season and out.
The 2017-2018 Associational year is in the books. Let us celebrate the year! Now, let’s look forward to Networking together for the Kingdom’s work. I look forward to hearing what the Father is doing in, near, around and with you. I am blessed to be your DOM during these days! Looking forward to be NEAR you Networking, Equipping, Assisting and Resourcing for Kingdom effectiveness! Go- Make Disciples!
