PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Go to www.kybaptist.org/missionaries to learn about these and all of our Kentucky missionaries. Pray for them (and maybe even send a note of encouragement) as they are having to find new ways to do ministry during these challenging times.
Join us on Friday, April 17th, during the evening session of the Kentucky Woman’s Missionary Union Annual Meeting & Celebration at Richmond First Baptist Church, and meet our new 2020 Kentucky missionaries. Eight men and women have sensed God’s call to serve in ministries across our state and will be commissioned during a very inspirational service on that evening.
These new missionaries are:
- Mollie Bentley, Director of the Rockhouse Baptist Church Mission Center in Hyden.
- Sheila Hourigan, Executive Director of House of Hope Pregnancy & Family Resource Center in Springfield.
- Christian & Katie McKenzie, Directors of Hillcrest Baptist Camp in Cave-in-Rock, IL.
- Joyce Morris, Missions & Ministry Associate at God’s Appalachian Partnership in McDowell.
- Tanya Parker, Missions & Ministry Associate at God’s Appalachian Partnership in McDowell.
- Norma Rush, serving with House of Blessings in Monticello.
- Brenda Sparks, serving with Cedaridge Ministries in Williamsburg.
Prior to the commissioning these missionaries will spend the day in orientation where they will learn about the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the Cooperative Program, Eliza Broadus State Missions and will be given many resources that will be beneficial to them as they serve. The time of networking with each other will also be most valuable.
You can partner with these and/or one of our current 107 Kentucky Mission Service Corps missionaries by:
- Praying for them on their birthdays using the interSEED prayer calendar (www.kybaptist.org/intrseed).
- 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.
