Hello, Texas Baptists. I have had the privilege of preaching at two wonderful churches recently. I was blessed to worship with Christian Family Baptist Church in San Antonio. Then I worshipped with First Baptist Church of Carrollton. Both are strong churches, and I feel fortunate to have spent time with them.

Your Texas Baptist staff toured our future home at Rambler Park. I feel the excitement as we approach our move this fall. We covet your prayers as we continue in this transition. The Lord is leading us into a new chapter. We look forward to what is ahead.

The Lord is active in the ministry going on through Beach Reach. Please keep these students in your prayers as they finish out their Spring Break.

If you are ever in the Dallas area, please stop by our offices! My door is always open. 

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