We have survived the long Winter season. Spring is on its way, and things are beginning to point 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.
Fifteen 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 8th, at Hodgenville First Baptist Church.
These new missionaries are:
- Mollie Bentley, Rockhouse Baptist Church Mission Center in Hyden.
- Perry Cooke, Mark 12 Ministries in Louisville.
- Marilyn Creighton, KBC North Central Regional Mobilization Consultant in Lexington.
- Virginia Dial, Connect Community Village in Somerset.
- David Little, Western Kentucky Correctional Complex in Fredonia.
- Daryl & Sheila Mullins, The Haven at Clarity in Elizabethtown.
- Pam Polkey, Irishtown Mission in Lexington.
- Bryan & Stephanie Proctor, Orphan Care Alliance in Lawrenceburg.
- Roberta Robertson, Bright Life Farms in Princeton.
- Rebecca Salyer, The Branch in Prestonsburg.
- Mary Jane Schopp, Kentucky Joy in the Mourning in Burlington.
- Jerry & Kimberly Wallace, Northern Kentucky Re-entry in Cold Spring.
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.
You can partner with these and/or one of our current 116 Kentucky Mission Service Corps missionaries by:
- Praying for them on their birthdays using the interSEED prayer calendar interSEED – Kentucky Baptist Convention.
- Adopting a Kentucky missionary through our Adopt-a-Missionary program (www.kybaptist.org/adoptmissionary).
- Assisting in their ministries through a short-term mission project or partnership.
Plan to join us for this special commissioning service where you can meet the missionaries and pledge your support for them. The 2022 Kentucky Missionary of the Year will also be recognized at the service.
We hope to see you there.
