It was a joy to be back at my home church, Lakeside Baptist Church, in Dallas on Sunday. It’s always great to connect with friends and stay near the home front every now and then.

This multifaceted training event introduces ministry resources provided by Texas Baptists in a context unique, encouraging and enriching to the African-American church. Featured speakers include Pastor H.B. Charles Jr., Pastor Michael Evans, Pastor Oscar D. Epps Sr. and musician clinician Patrick Bradley.

I want to encourage you to invite Chris Liebrum to come to your church and explain how the Cooperative Program works. Contact him at chris.liebrum@texasbaptists.org. Your gifts, in cooperation with other Texas Baptist churches, make possible children’s homes, hospitals, universities, new churches, college scholarships, Vacation Bible Schools, student missions and much more. texas baptist voices right120All made possible because of your gifts to the Cooperative Program.



The Christian Life Commission has some great resources to help churches know how to respond to the recent Supreme Court decision. The Baptist General Convention of Texas is committed to loving, caring and treating all people with grace and respect. Also, we continue to affirm our long held understanding of the biblical view of marriage as that between one man and one woman.   

David Hardage is executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas Executive Board.
