 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Philippians 2:2 (NKJV)


A word from our Transitional Director of Missions

It is an honor and joy to serve in the capacity of Transitional Director of Missions for Purchase Area Baptist Association.   I hope to help this association  set goals for the future, promote missions, community,  fellowship, and unity  among the pastors and churches.  I have stated some goals in the 18 Month Plan I submitted to the Executive Committee when they considered calling me to this position.  CLICK HERE to review my eighteen month plan.   I have already attended services in all our churches and have truly enjoyed  getting to know the pastors and the  membership.    Our people are some of warmest and most genuine people you would ever want to meet.  I will continue to meet with our pastors, churches, and some non-affiliated churches to see where they are needing encouragement and possibly,  assistance .   God is at work in our churches and we need to look to see where we can join Him on mission for Christ…. Together!    

I look forward excitedly to serving with you as your new TDOM.

Isaiah 40:31
