A Missionary's Corner

A Moment with the Moderator:

It was with sincere humility and a feeling of inadequacy that I accepted the position of Moderator for Elkin Baptist Association.  I am so grateful for the assistance of the outstanding leadership team the Lord has assembled to assist in guiding the ministries of our association in the absence of an Associational Mission Strategist (formerly DOM). 

I believe God would have our association dedicate our efforts to winning the lost to faith in Christ and disciple believers to be faithful followers of Him, who will also become witnesses for Christ.  Our Scriptural guide for the next year will be 2 Timothy 2:2, which states, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.”  I am simply a servant,

AMS Search Team Update

Your AMS search team has been hard at work in our endeavor to find that individual God is preparing to lead our Association into God Kingdom work.  Our team has made great progress since our April meeting in this process.  We met with Lester Evans from the Baptist State Convention of NC to get some great information and guidance in beginning this process. Since then, our team has reviewed the structure of our Association and review the mission statement to develop a profile that will help us to identify our next leader.  When we completed our profile, we were ready to publicly open the process of receiving resumes.  You can look at the profile and find information about what we are looking for in our next leader on our Association website or the Biblical Recorder website at Brnow.org.  The process of receiving resumes will be open until the end of August and that time we will begin praying over those resumes seeking God to direct our team to the individual He has prepared to lead our Association.  We do ask that you continue to pray for our search team as we continue moving forward in this process.  Thank you for your confidence in allowing our team to be part of this search as we seek God’s direction to fill this position.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or again other member of this team.  I can be reached at this number by call or text or you feel free to email me at this address jeffrev88@gmail.com.

Rev. Jeff Collins
