Dear Fellow servant of the Lord Jesus,

I just returned from the North American Mission Board's national meeting of Southern Baptist Director of Missions. It was my privilege to meet NAMB's new president, Kevin Ezell. After the meeting I feel that our support of NAMB through Cooperate program giving and the Annie Armstrong Easter offering is still one of the best ways to be involved in reaching North America for Christ.

Please remember and put on your calendar.the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions. This time focuses on Southern Baptist mission efforts in the United States and Canada. It is named in honor of Annie Armstrong who served as a missionary in Baltimore, this offering helps support the work of more than 5,000 North American missionaries. These missionaries serve through Baptist centers, language ministries, church planting, resorts and inner cities. The offering is traditionally featured near Easter each year. NAMB produces many quality products that will assist churches in emphasizing this important opportunity to support missions in our homeland. For more information about Annie Armstrong go to or to the NAMB Web site at to download resources.

Church Without Shoes
Church WithOut Shoes

I want to highly recommend an event that is coming to our area. On May 17th (afternoon-evening) to May 18th 2011. Church Without Shoes (several of our churches are part of this organization) will be hosting a 3dM Taster. We want you to consider being a part of this initial experience. Our general experience is that people are quite intrigued by Missional Communities, the success we've seen with them and the culture of discipleship the churches we've worked with have been able to create. Because of this, most people want to explore a little further before joining either a Coaching track or a Learning Community. We would not expect you to invest in this kind of journey without a "test drive," so we invite you to sign up for one of our free, two-day Taster Retreats.

For more information and to register go to the following link.

Pastor/Staff Lunch
3rd Tuesday of Every Month 

Open to all Pastors

It is the feeling of those who have attended the last few lunches that it is better to have them at restaurants than at churches. So from now on we will have the Luncheons at restaurants in different areas of the association.

If you would like to suggest a restaurant in your area please call Jack at 925-864-2033 and talk to him about it.
