Reports keep rolling in about churches who participated in the Texas Hope 2010 Commitment Day on Jan. 11. Wandering the internet, I found Terry Williams’ new blog, Texas Tundra. You can read about Terry’s Commitment Day experience by clicking here. I found it great reading. It really gave me an insight into Terry’s heart for ministry and for his church, Key Heights Baptist Church in Perryton.
This is the part of his post that I loved most:
God led me to preach out of 2 Kings 7:3-11, and issue to our church a challenge to get back to the the task of the Great Commission. I challenged them to commit to work at having 40 baptisms by May 2010. If this happens, it will double our congregation’s normal attendance. God worked in our hearts and about 3/4 of the congregation came forward to make the commitment to share the gospel with those around them.
Needless to say, this sappy preacher weeped tears of joy and thanksgiving on how the congregation responded to the call. I’m excited as we go forward and how God will open doors for us to share Jesus Christ and Him Crucified!
Terry, this sounds like a wonderful goal and vision for your church. Texas Baptists across the state will be praying for your congregation.
