Looking forward to partnering in ministry with the new Alabama Baptist State Convention officers, elected Nov. 14:
President Tim Cox (center, being choked … ha!) — pastor of Liberty Baptist Church, Chelsea.
First Vice President Buddy Champion (left) — pastor of First Baptist Church, Trussville.
Second Vice President Morgan Bailey (right) — pastor of Canaan Baptist Church, Bessemer.
Dedicated group of pastors for sure — and lots of fun as well.
A note of congrats also goes out to John Thweatt, pastor of First Baptist Church, Pell City, who wrapped up his time as convention president Nov. 14. Prior to his final act as president, Thweatt shared with The Alabama Baptist some of what he learned during his time in the role.
Alabama Baptists have a lot of thriving, “incredible” ministries, and watching them at work was a good reminder to keep the Great Commission central and work together to accomplish it, he said.
