NEWS FROM OUR CHURCHES Dr Mark A Boyd I have just finished my certification process with Dr Thom Rainer and coupled with my doctoral studies in church revitalization from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary I am ready to launch a specialized consult for our associational churches in the area of revitalization I am currently taking Trinity Baptist Church of Idabel through the process and I am preparing to take a couple more in our association through it as well Here is what I will provide for your church in a comprehensive customized consult for being a part of Frisco Baptist Association An assessment of the community including both demographics and psychographics Interaction and interviews with pastors and church leaders Analysis of the facilities Analysis of social media website presence Statistical analysis of key church metrics Stewardship financial analysis Discovery of growth and or ministry obstacles and opportunities An outsider s perspective on the worship services Transformational church health survey Action items for implementation Additional coaching to help with implementation 6 sessions can be added in total via Zoom or in person I have built a new website at https Revitalize Replant com if you would like to learn more I am also using my other website One More Morning at https omm today in developing a strategy for evangelism to be used by our churches As we journey into this post Covid 19 climate our churches will face some unique challenges It is my prayer that these free resources will help you and your church as you fulfill the mission of helping people find and follow Jesus Christ WILD GAME FEED Thank you to all that have donated so far to the Father s Day Offering I am hearing of some great reports of generous giving across our association to KBA I will be listing the results of the KBA Offering from across our five associations in the August newsletter so stay tuned Be sure to visit the camp s Facebook page to learn how you can still donate to our camp at https www facebook com kbacamplife Trinity Baptist Church of the Messer Community reports they had an average of 45 at their VBS and had 2 for salvation and 4 for

74743 580 326 9625 Is the Digital or Internet Church really the Church A s tragic as the pandemic is one of the most valuable lessons for the church is that The Church is not a building but a body of redeemed believers Many churches that had not invested in technology for livestreaming now see the value in advancing their gospel presentation outside the walls of their building Others who had previously invested in the technology began to realize the value of online venues and platforms and have refined that presence developing a regular listening audience and even garnering new listeners All good We re discovering that whosoever will may range from the reluctant watcher who is trying to decide whether he she is ready to respond to the employee who is so desirous of Sunday morning church but never able to attend to those shut in because of age or illness Having said that there is no substitute for believers gathering together whether under a roof or a sky is irrelevant The group matters Koinonia is important The word together is replete throughout the book of Acts Things happened in the Upper Room that couldn t have happened otherwise There is the power of critical mass when it seems good to the Holy Spirit and to us Singing or praying with a computer screen just isn t the same as being in a chorus of voices together Not to mention the fellowship of handshakes and hugs which may not show up for a while or praying together corporately for the sick Faith has no walls and there is no distance in prayer But the power of an energized participating engaged congregation cannot be duplicated online Reprinted from churchaswers com
