A Few Good Men

This morning I had the privilege of meeting with the Search Team and the Administrative Team of the TriCounty Baptist Association.

I've got to say that I really enjoy serving with these men. Most of them are pastors, although there are a couple of exceptions. They allow me to serve with them as an "at large" member out of their goodness and graciousness. They each bring great strengths and giftedness to the teams in order to serve the churches of the Association.

The Search team is charged with finding the person called to serve as our Director of Missions. We are made up of several members of the Administrative Team plus one pastor that is not on the Administrative Team. After our meeting the full A-Team met for our regular meeting.

I love thse guys! They serve their churches and the Association to bring glory and honor to God through His son Jesus. They have a real heart for reaching the lost and for encouraging believers to grow in the faith. They really ache for the churches that are struggling and have a great desire to see new churches started to reach those that do not know the joy of salvation through our Lord and Savior, Jesus. I leave every meeting encouraged by their faith and dedication. Just being with them is inspiring.

If you know these guys well, you know that they are not necessarily men of great stature by the standards of our society. They are inspiring because they model the compassion of Jesus.

I hope that they will continue to allow me to serve with them.
It's pretty tough to have a bad day when you get to spend the morning with these good men.

Thanks, brothers!
