I plead for you to please read the following concerning our associational ROUNDTABLE for Ministers.
It is a great experience with quality material that will enrich your life and ministry. The four to five hours a month will be well worth the investment.
Greg Williams, who founded the “Roundtable”, is from the Atlanta area and will be facilitating this first meeting this year. Greg did two of our meetings last year and those present really were blessed by his ministry and the wisdom he shared.
Paul Tripp said, “Your walk with God is a Community Project.”
The need for ministers should become obvious to us, the Minister needs a community involvement, likely of their peers, because no one else can be trusted. Even the trust of peers is sometimes a challenge. But our rule is total confidentiality.
We should be involved in something that is an intentionally intrusive, Christ Centered, Grace Driven, Christian Community. I understand that I am not designed to do this by myself. I need you. Please join us at 9 a.m. on 1/24/13. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. The materials as well as the short video have been paid for by the generous contributions of individuals who desire to invest in their ministerial staff.
All we ask is that you call the CBA at 706-322-7757 and make a reservation as well as to give us four hours of your time to see if this will benefit your life.
In His Love, By His Grace, Jimmy
Below is a testimony from a pastor who has attended the Roundtable:
Hi. My name is Robert Montgomery. I pastor Tabernacle Baptist Church of
Lawrenceville in Lawrenceville Ga. Our church is affiliated with Stone Mountain Baptist Association.
For close to a year now, I have had the great privilege to be a part of the Pastor’s Roundtable sponsored by our association and I want to tell you that it has been very helpful to me as a pastor. Here’s how.
1. The topics that we discuss each month have been extremely relevant to what we as pastors need to discuss. Sometimes the topics come through a video presentation and sometimes through an article relevant to pastors.
2. We take a portion of the time where we go around the table discussing those things which keep us up at night, things that happen in church. Each of us may chime in, how to best handle those situations. The thing that’s great is that the answer is in that room.
It comes from one or more of our fellow pastors. If a brother is in deep pain we all lay hands on him and pray over that brother.
The thing is, I went for years not having this kind of wholesome contact with other pastors. It was what I longed for and it is everything I hoped it would be.
Robert L. Montgomery
