NAB UPDATE - June 11, 2012

Part of our role at the International Office is to evaluate the strategies and effectiveness of our NAB mission fields. We have been asked to provide leadership on behalf of our NAB churches, and I believe this leadership must include accountable stewardship and future planning. While one of the most energizing privileges of my job is to explore new mission opportunities (NEXT Nations) that the Lord may have for us as a conference of churches, one of the most delicate challenges is to bring change to an existing work. We all know that change is hard. But it is even more challenging when you effect change in a cross cultural setting.

North American Baptist Conference Weekly Update - July 25, 2011

For God so loved…..He gave!

Can you imagine what it’s like to spend considerable time contacting people via phone, e-mail, snail mail, and face-to-face in order to invite them to participate in an opportunity to give “over and above” for a ministry or special cause? I know, a lot of folks would shy away (maybe run away) from such a task.

Since recently assuming the role of president of the North American Baptist Foundation, I’ve engaged in this task on a regular basis. Let me give you two examples of how blessed I’ve been in connecting with NABers across the country. 

Example #1: A faithful NAB congregation encountered difficult financial straits. They found they needed to forego a commitment they’d made to support a new missionary appointee to an NAB mission field.

North American Baptist Conference Weekly Update - July 11, 2011

I recently sent a newsletter to our North American Baptist churches, sharing some of the current struggles in Nigeria and asking for your prayers for the Hungs as they settle into their new ministry in Gembu. Since the time of that letter there have been a number of significant events among key staff of the seminary and hospital.

You may have heard of the tragic accident that took the lives of both provost and deputy provost of the seminary as they were traveling together. The seminary has appointed an interim provost, Mr. Godwill Sol, to lead the school through this difficult season.
