Assocational leaders, Pastors, and lay leaders from across Collin County will meet at the CBA Church Network offices in Fairview on January 31 to participate in a simulcast with SBC President, J.D. Greear. The Lunch & Learn session is part of CBA's efforts to help churches connect, collaborate, and engage with each other for the sake of Gospel advancement in Collin County and beyond.  Greear, is using the simulcast to meet virtually with more than one thousand Baptist Associations across the country to launch his "Who's Your One?" evangelistic initiative.

"Who's Your One?" encourages every Southern Baptist to intentionally build a relationship with one person over the course of 2019, share the Gospel and invite that person to trust Christ as Lord and Savior.

"Associations have always served as a valuable partner in cooperation, mobilizing churches together," said Greear, pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, N.C during a recent interview with Baptist Press. Greear said the Association for his church "provides a great structure for church revitalization, racial reconciliation and partnership evangelism in our city." He added that it made sense for Baptist Associations across the country to work together.

"Don't turn away from poverty. Come together to solve it."
- Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings

The rate at which the wealth gap is growing in the Metroplex is startling and the ramifications cannot go unnoticed. With 38% of our children facing the devastating effects of poverty daily, we must "come together to solve it."

The Cost of Poverty Experience is a marked first step in joining the journey:   this transformative simulation provides a glimpse into the lives of low-income populations living in our communities and ushers participants into greater understanding and empathy. To love well is to be aware and as stewards of God's kingdom, shouldn't we open our eyes?
A special Cost of Poverty Experience is being designed just for you by Christian leaders in your city who are dedicated to Church unity.
