From the Moderators' Desk

Greetings to each of you my fellow labors in Christ Jesus,

      Since our installation into office much has been accomplished thanks to our outstanding staff and the support of so many of you.  God is truly good to us in so many wonderful ways.  I thank him for all He has done, is doing and will do.  

     Honoring God through Unity, Purpose and Strength binds us together on one accord, for all to see that CHRIST lives in us.  I am pleased to announce that we are sending our first check to General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, in support of the objectives.  Thanks to all the churches for making this possible, without you it would not be.  Thanks! May God keep each of you strong, focused, vigilant and committed to Christ Jesus.

Love, Peace and Prayers,

Dr. Thurman B. Everett, Moderator
