Evangelism Response Center
The following information was shared with us by Mark Snowden....Evangelism/Discipleship specialist with the Missouri Baptist Convention. It explains a fraction of the ministry of the Evangelism Response Center. While you may be checking out the North American Mission Board's website contact information, you may also want to check out www.findithere.com.
More than 500 Missouri Baptists have been trained by the ERC at NAMB as Telephone Encouragers. We met on April 11-12 with regional facilitators and they will be contacting the 500 to “clean up” the list and see who is still active.
The Evangelism Response Center (ERC) just let us know today that in 2013, the ERC received 32,069 calls, an average of 2,672 per month. This is an 80% increase from the previous year. In 2013, a total of 2,334 people accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior through ERC and its partnership ministries. In addition to these decisions, there were 668 salvation inquiries. ERC referred close to 1,400 people to local churches through covenant churches, associations, and state reps. During the year, 56 covenant churches were recruited.

Welcome to Fellowship Baptist Association!
Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission. Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!
A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?" There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?" Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"! I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.

August 12, 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM is the time Fellowship Baptist Association is responsible for the State Fair Ministry Tent. As in the past, we are utilizing the 3-Minute Testimony style of outreach. We will need 10-12 volunteers to help with this ministry project. If you would like to volunteer to help, please call Bro. Dave at the office. A training event for this ministry will be held at Baptist Ridge Camp June 3 at 7:00 PM.
September 8 and 9 at Baptist Ridge Camp. We will begin each evening at 6:45. Please note these two significant changes..... Due to the On Mission Celebration (Sept 26-27 -- FBC, Hermitage) we will NOT have a "Mission Fair" with our fall meeting this year. Since we will not have the "Mission Fair," we will NOT be having the "traditional" Tuesday evening meal.
I hope you have been hearing about the On Mission Celebration coming September 26-27 at FBC, Hermitage! This will be a Super Missions Revival!! Plan to attend Friday evening at 7:00, Saturday afternoon at 4:00, Fellowship Meal Saturday evening, and our IMB Keynote Speaker Saturday evening!! You won't want to miss this GREAT opportunity!!!!
