Weekly Update 
   
 
 
 
This past week, we continued to work on the Chapel at the Tri-Rivers Retreat Center putting up sheetrock, Hardie board and the metal roof. If you would like to volunteer at the Retreat Center as we finish out the Chapel and make it ready for use, please give me a call. This past week, we met the needs of many of our Area Churches in various ministry resources and mission opportunity, along with assisting churches as they continue their search for a pastor.
 
Last week, I was blessed to meet with the Erath Baptist Association Leadership. I am excited and encouraged by their passion to serve the Lord and reach their community for the Lord by coming together as a brotherhood of churches. This past weekend I attended the Texas Baptist Bivocational/Small Church Association Annual Meeting hosted at Truett Seminary in Waco.  
 
On Sunday, I attended Carlton Baptist Church. Continue to pray for this church as they begin their search for their next pastor. This week, I will be visiting with Area Pastor's at the DOM/Pastor Luncheons. It is always at wonderful time of fellowship and praying for one another. I will also be meeting with the Hamilton Coalition to share with them the ministry of the Tri-Rivers Domestic Violence Emergency Safe House. If you would like to serve as an advocate for this ministry, please contact me.
 
I am looking forward to attending several churches Valentines Banquets the following week as a guest and to perform songs of love.
 
Until next week, please view the newsletter to stay updated on all that is happening through your Tri-Rivers Baptist Area. Take time this week, to share your story of Salvation to someone.
 
Until next week, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

The Central Texas Men's Conference, which is now in its 32nd year, is TBC's biggest men's event of the year. Come join over three hundred men who will gather at Camp Tejas in Giddings, Texas, January 25 - 27, 2019 for this life changing weekend.

Camp Tejas is a great facility for the conference, offering activities for everyone. They include disc golf, a zip line, a climbing wall, basketball, fishing, skeet shooting, dominos, and a game room. The food is fantastic as well. But the two best things about the weekend are great Bible teaching and time with great friends...both old ones and new ones!




Rural Churches Ministry Summer 2019 Intern

We are the sister churches of White Mound Baptist and Mound Cowboy Church located southeast of Gatesville in Coryell County, Texas, about 38 miles from Baylor University. We are seeking a single summer intern or married couple as summer interns to minister to children and younger youth in our country churches. A rural background is not a prerequisite. Interns need a loving heart to see children grow closer to Christ. Ministry opportunities include Wednesday nights, in a teaching and recreation time, and Sunday mornings, teaching during Sunday School. Planning special recreation events to be with children in a fun setting has been a summer tradition. Interns will participate in our week of evening Vacation Bible School and will accompany 3rd through 6th grade children to Kidz Kamp at Latham Springs July 18-22. A first year of taking kids to junior high camp is another vision for this summer. God is speaking to our children. Several have made decisions to follow Christ in the past few months, and this summer would be opportunity to disciple these children. We envision a minimum of 20 hours per week at $12.50 to $15.00 per hour from May 19 to August 11.
 
The intern should be able to do the job and take summer seminary classes, also. Depending on the intern's gifts, call to ministry, and time, opportunity to preach two to three times and accompany our Bivocational pastor on pastoral visits is possible. Interested students may contact the pastor, Dr. Bruce Cox, at bruce_cox@sbcglobal.net by February 21st.
