Praying for God”s favor

Messengers are coming to Castle Hills First Baptist Church, San Antonio to take care of a little business. We will do a lot of celebrating of God’s gracious favor. God is moving in Texas and beyond through His people. We are gathering to be accountable as a staff to the churches. Also, we are gathering to encourage one another to stay together for the task ahead. There are too many who are without Christ in our state and too many unengaged people around the world for us not to go and give. The annual meeting provides us with the time to put other concerns aside and focus on the greater Kingdom opportunities. Giving through the Cooperative Program makes our work together possible. Going makes us “doers” of the Word as James 1:22 commands, which is the theme of our annual meeting this year.

Most of you reading this article are not at the SBTC annual meeting in San Antonio. Please pray for God’s favor to rest upon us. Your staff prays for every church during the year. The convention exists at the good pleasure of the churches. Pray, give and participate to make the SBTC what you want it to be for the glory of God.
