Spring has officially arrived, the dogwoods and redbuds are blooming, and everything is pointing to new life. What an exciting time of year. It’s time once again for our annual missionary orientation and commissioning of the new missionaries serving in Kentucky. The orientation is a time for the missionaries to learn about the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the Cooperative Program, Eliza Broadus State Missions and many resources and support available to them. This time of networking is most valuable.
Sixteen men and women that have sensed God’s call to serve in ministries across our state will be commissioned at the Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union Annual Meeting and Missions Celebration on Friday, April 5th, at First Baptist Church, Bowling Green.
These new missionaries are:
- Chris & Becky Baird, Director and Secretary/Treasurer for the Ohio County Food Pantry in Hartford.
- Jill Boddy, Office Administrator with HR Ministries in Princeton.
- Gail Boling, Serving at the Daviess-McLean Association’s Baptist Center in Owensboro.
- Dean & Melissa Branscum, Directors of Living Water Clothes Closet in Eubank.
- Tim & Joyce Burdon, Chaplain with Retriever Hunt Test Ministry and Women’s Ministry Leader in Marion.
- Sheila Cobb, Serving at Daviess-McLean Association’s Baptist Center in Bowling Green .
- Hilton & Barbara Duncan, Directors of Integrated Community Ministries in Stearns.
- Annette Robinson, Food Coordinator for Blood River Association’s Bags of Hope Food Pantry and Clothes Closet in Hardin.
- Lee Rust, Women’s Evangelist & Prison Ministry for Female Inmates with Freedom Forever Ministries in Paducah.
- David Thomas, Serving with Mission Hope for Kids in Elizabethtown.
- Daniel & Alice Tarnagda, Directors of Refuge Bowling Green.
We want to extend a special invitation for you to join us for this special commissioning service where you can meet the missionaries and pledge your support for them.
The 2019 Kentucky Missionary of the Year will also be recognized at the service.
