Hello, Texas Baptists. It’s been a very busy season. I had a great time preaching at New Sunset Community Church in Killeen. And I so enjoyed speaking to pastors from Bluebonnet Baptist Association at Calvary Baptist Church in San Marcos, as well as to students in several ministry guidance classes at Baylor University. Then I was with First Baptist Church in Stephenville for their “I Love My Church” banquet. Now on to San Juan, Puerto Rico, for the Baptist state executive directors’ fellowship meeting.
Texas Baptist Golf Classic set for April 25 at the Dallas Athletic Club. For the past two years, more than 200 pastors and staff have enjoyed a great day of golf and fellowship. The tournament is filling up fast, but there’s still time to register to play or to be a sponsor—click here.Don’t forget to register for the 2016
I am pleased to welcome two former pastors, John Nguyen and Dowell Loftis, to our Texas Baptist staff as part-time representatives for Area 8, which encompasses counties as far north as Grayson and Fannin and as far south as Leon. The duo will work together to build relationships with pastors, key church leaders and directors of missions for Dallas area associations. They will also be available to fill pulpits and preach on behalf of Texas Baptists. So, be sure and call on them soon.
David Hardage is executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas Executive Board.
