Weekly Update 
 
 
 
If you are receiving this newsletter then you and your church are vital to the mission and ministry of Tri-Rivers Baptist Area. We are asking each church to send representatives and or pastors for the 2020 Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Church Conference, this Saturday, January 18 hosted at the Tri-Rivers Retreat Center from 11 am - 1 pm with a catered lunch. Register Online HERE or
by calling your Area Office at 254-865-1299 or visit our website:  
tri-riversbaptistarea.com .
 
It will be a wonderful time of fellowship, tour the Retreat Center and get to know one as we create a stronger Brotherhood of Churches. It is my prayer that all 80 churches will be represented to hear about the mission and vision of how we can do more together for the Kingdom than we can do apart.
 
This past week, I attended the Lampasas Baptist Association Meeting hosted by School Creek Baptist Church, visited with the two Hispanic pastors as we strive to create a better partnership in building the Kingdom as well as starting a new Hispanic church in Selden. This weekend, we worked at the Tri-Rivers Retreat Center and on Sunday, I worshiped, presented special music and preached God's Word at The Church at Blue Ridge in Hamilton.
 
This week, I am meeting with the officers of the Texas Baptist Bivocational/Smaller Church Minister's and Spouse Association to serving those called to the small church mission field. On Wednesday, I will be attending the first Hamilton Baptist Association WMU Meeting hosted at the Tri-Rivers Retreat Center. On Thursday, I will be serving on the Executive Board at Latham Springs Baptist Encampment and on Friday, I will be meeting with some of the staff at the BSM of Tarleton. This week, we will also be spending time, preparing for the 2020 Tri-Rivers Baptist Area Church Conference.
 
On Sunday morning, I will be preaching at FBC Moody, followed by a fellowship meal as they dedicate their new building at 2 pm, later that afternoon, I will be attending the Coryell Baptist Association Meeting hosted at College Avenue Baptist Church with guest speaker pastor Masok "Peter" Mafwal of Levita Baptist Fellowship as he will share his testimony of God's Call in his life growing up in Africa. That evening I will be attending the Open House at the Hispanic New Church Start in Selden.
 
Please take time to view the newsletter for additional ministry and mission opportunities. It is always a joy to serve you so please do not hesitate to contact your Tri-Rivers Area office if you need assistance or information regarding your ministry needs.
 
Until next week, "All the believers were together and had everything in common." - Acts 2:44
