Dr. Johnny Hunt is on a Leave of Absence until September 19, 2010. The Executive Pastor, Rev. Jim Law, of FBC Woodstock made a statement on Sunday, August 8, 2010. We here at SBC Today want to ask our readers to pray for Dr. Hunt and his wife Janet as requested by the leadership of FBC Woodstock. More coverage can be found at Baptist Press and a video link can be found on FBC Woodstock’s website, or you can go here to find a link.
I have a need and thought I would open it up to the Body of Christ found in the San Antonio area.
I am leaving Saturday, July 31, 2010 for a Mission trip to Mexico. My plane lands 12:20pm CT and I need to get from the airport to the border crossing at Eagle Pass. Can someone help me with a ride for two people and their luggage? If you can help just email me and let me know. If I do not get any responses then I will use the shuttle. Just trying to save some money. We will cover your gas costs.
I have recently agreed to help a friend, Les Puryear, who has called to our attention an important need and emphasis within the life of the Southern Baptist Convention. The need is set forth in what Les has established as the SBC Majority Initiative. This is a movement to encourage the smaller in attendance churches in our convention, which comprise approximately 83% of the 40,000+ churches of the SBC, to greater involvement in leadership within the ongoing work of our entities and trustee boards.
In addition to awakening our national convention to the need for our smaller churches to be more involved in leadership, those involved also hope to provide news about resources to help our churches more fully and faithfully carry out our Great Commission calling and ministries.
SO, if you haven’t already, please go check out the following opportunities to get connected to the SBC Majority Initiative:
