I regularly have the privilege of preaching in our smaller in attendance churches. I often tell these churches that they need not feel alone because they are the majority size among Oklahoma Baptist churches. Indeed, the smaller in attendance church is vital to our ability to impact our state with the Gospel and to see followers of Christ discipled.
Churches like yours are the heart of Oklahoma Baptists and are the focus of much of the resources and ministry of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO). This booklet is designed to place in your hands a resource that will assist you in finding the help you need to lead your church to be on mission for Christ. We want you to be able to easily find BGCO staff members who can help you serve more effectively, and we want to make connecting with the BGCO and its staff a very easy step for you.
The BGCO’s greatest privilege and desire is to assist and extend the ministry of your church. Our ministry focus is to serve you. To quote Scripture, “You have not but because you ask not.” The only reason we have not served you or your church is because we have not been asked.
I am so pleased that Dr. Phil Jones is the BGCO point man for smaller in attendance churches. He understands your challenges and desires to serve you. Please call on him.
Our prayer is that this guide will assist you to know who and what is available from the BGCO to impact your church’s ministry.
Yours in Christ,
Anthony L. Jordan
