Pastors and spouses new to the Georgia Baptist Convention gathered at the Missions and Ministry Center on September 24 for a day of fellowship, orientation, and brainstorming new ways of reaching their communities for Christ.
The longstanding tradition of orienting new ministers to the state convention was attended by 44 pastors, 32 spouses, and an associational missionary and his wife. Eight children were entertained by the disaster relief childcare unit staffed by volunteers across the state.
The ministers attended conferences such as “The Top Ten Tax Mistakes Ministers and Churches Make,” “Sustainable Ministry: Church Giving Matters,” and an update on the Across Georgia 2010 evangelistic outreach emphasis.
Paul Darnal, pastor of Nepali Baptist Church, won a mission trip to one of the state convention’s partnerships (California, New York, and Appalachia). His congregation is a church plant of North Pinetree Baptist Church in Doraville.
Winning the international mission trip was Joel Thomas, pastor of Pinetree Park Baptist Church in Riverdale. Thomas will choose between locations where the state convention is partnering with Western Canada or the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
Misty Mayes, spouse of Middle River Baptist Church, Carnesville, youth pastor Joshua Mayes, won a lifetime subscription to The Christian Index.
