Hello, Texas Baptists! I had a wonderful time preaching recently at Spring Creek Baptist Church in Weatherford. Pastor Jase Waller and his wife were excellent hosts. Also, thanks to Pastor Brian Hill for inviting me to preach at First Baptist Church in Corpus Christi. I also had the privilege of speaking at the annual fund-raising banquet at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi’s Baptist Student Ministry. Thanks to Eric Bean for the opportunity

We are here to serve you.

It’s not too late to register for the Everlasting Choir Celebration April 28-29 at Southcrest Baptist Church in Lubbock.

Texas Woman’s Missionary Union held its annual meeting and missions celebration at Austin Baptist Church in Austin. It was a glowing endorsement by the Spirit of God of the cultural diversity that exists within the body of Christ.

Please prayerfully consider doubling your gifts to the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions this coming September.

Our annual Bible Drill & Speakers’ Tournaments are under way. Our Great Commission team is raising up a generation of Christ followers by encouraging them to hide God’s word deep in their heart!
