DEDICATION 




THE CORD INS 



Miss Addle" 



"Mr. Fred 



Mr. and Mrs. Fred Corbin have been married For 66 years. He 
is 86 years old, she is 84. They have 6 sons - Harry, Fredrick, 
Max, Kenneth, Bobby Joe, David - and one daughter, Mae, who is 
deceased. Thinking back on the past of Macon Association, they 
have pleasant and happy memories of many meetings attended and 
many blessings received. 

Anyone who has been a Macon Baptist for any number of years 
can remember a familiar sight, Mr. Fred and Miss Addie at the 
annual meeting. He thinks they were messengers for 30 or more 
years, almost consecutively. Though not real sure, they may have 
been messengers for 40 years. She remembers when all the family 
would go. It was two whole days and you took dinner both days. 
He remembers going his first time in a wagon to the Franklin 
First Church as a very young child. Specific places and exact 
dates slip past clear remembrance. But one thing is clear, they 
loved the annual gathering and feel it i s an important part of 
the Baptist year. 

Mr. and Mrs. Corbin are charter members of the Higdonville 
Baptist Church. Their love for God and His church has been 
evident in their work there down through the years. Mr. Fred 
served in many capacities in the assoc i a t i ona 1 work. He helped 
on committees in all departments, was assoc i at 1 ona 1 Sunday School 
Superintendent and served as moderator in 1966. He mentions the 
changes that have taken place as the years go by, many helpful 
and good. He urges that Baptists must remain steadfast to sound 
doctrine and not compromise in today's changing world. 

In appreciation for their faithfulness and commitment to 
something they felt worthwhile and for the example they have 
shown in all their Christian walk, we proudly dedicate this 1990 
Annual to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Corbin. 



In Memoriam 




Clyde Calvin Drake & Patricia Stiles Drake 



Clyde was a charter member of Longview Baptist Church, and very much involved in 
establishing the church. Pat became a member at Longview soon after moving to Franklin. 
There they met, and were married on January 20, 1951, and were life-long members. 

Serving their Lord always came first, and when they had children, they raised them in the 
church. They had three sons: Philip, Tommy, and Warren; two daughters: Millie Frady and 
Faith Raby; and eight grandchildren. 

During their lives they served in many capacities in the church and community. They worked 
together in the tax and accounting business they started in the 1950's. Pat served as Sunday 
School teacher, GA leader, WMU officer, VBS director, Christmas program director, among 
other activities, and in the community, was a Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader. Clyde served as 
Deacon, and chairman of the board, as well as Sunday School teacher, and member of numerous 
committees, and for a number of years on the Board of Directors of Northwestern and First 
Citizens Banks. 

Although Clyde spent all of his life on crutches or in a wheelchair, those of us who knew him 
never considered him handicapped. The two of them, when they were married, really "became 
one". They complimented each other so well, as they worked together to raise a family and serve 
their Lord. Rarely was one seen without the other. And until their health began failing, rarely 
were the church doors open that they weren't there. 

Clyde went home to be with the Lord on November 15, 1988, and Pat joined him on March 
27, 1990. They fought a good fight and were always faithful to their Lord, and their church. They 
will be sorely missed.

SHARE HIS LOVE 



The love of God is broader than earth's vast expanse, 
'Tis deeper and wider than the sea. 
Love reaches out to all to bring abundant life, 
For God so loved the world his only Son he gave. 



All those who have trusted in God's only Son, 

And hold this precious treasure in their hearts, 

Seek ways to make it known to all who need to know 

That God so loved the world his only Son he gave. 



We show the love of God each day we live, 

Reveal Christ's presence in our lives; 

And how the Holy Spirit guides us day by day, 

For God so loved the world his only Son he gave. 



Share his love by telling what the Lord has done for you 

Share his love by sharing of your faith, 

And show the world that Jesus Christ is real to you 

Ev'ry moment, ev'ry day.

Trustees, who submitted the following recommendation: The 
Trustees, Associational Director, and Associational Moderator met 
with Mr. Bill Jackson, retired Caraway Camp Director, of Asheboro, 
North Carolina and looked at a parcel of land that Mrs. Agnes 
Kelley, daughter of Rev. Theron Slagle wants to give to the Macon 
Baptist Association to be used in some manner. The property is 
located off the Burningtown road about 2 miles north of 
Burningtown Baptist Church. After reviewing the site as to size, 
location, and the lay of the property and suggestions from Mr. 
Jackson, We recommend that the Association accept the property to 
be used for limited overnite camping and picnic area. Should the 
demand require future development, this could be taken care of as 
needed. Submitted by Trustees: Mr. Max Gladwell, Chairman; Mr. 
Bobby Peek, Mr. Doug Thompson." 

A move was made by Mr. Carl Reagan, Franklin First, second by 
Rev. Eddie Trull, Holly Springs, to accept the recommendation from 
the Trustees. Motion carried. 

(42) Rev. Mark Bishop, Missions Committee, was recognized 
for recommendation: The Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina is involved in a 5-year partnership with the State of Sao 
Paulo, Brazil of which only about 1 year remains. This 
partnership links participating North Carolina Associations with 
Associations in Sao Paulo to strengthen existing churches and 
start new churches. This area of Brazil is heavily populated with 
the city of Sao Paulo consisting of more than 16 million people 
alone. This 5-year surrounding participating Associations are 
helping enlist teams of people for this evangelistic and 
discipleship effort. The Associations are simply asked to vote to 
support this partnership without financial obligation. 
Participating includes promotion of the needs and enlistment of 
persons to go as team members. The cost per individual is 
approximately $1,400. Should churches voluntarily wish to sponsor 
an individual who wishes to go as a team member from our 
Association, they may do so through love offerings or gifts. 

23 



Otherwise, no financial responsibility is involved in this 
partnership. 

We, therefore, as the Missions Committee, recommend that 
Macon Baptist Association vote to join in this partnership with 
our surrounding Associations of Truett, Tuckasegee, Tennessee 
River, Cheoah, and Haywood to enlist persons to form teams in 
order to carry out this missions effort.

NEWMAN CHAPEL BAPTIST CHURCH HISTORY 

Newman Chapel Baptist Church was organized in 1922 with 
seventeen charter members. The first land was donated by Mr. A.J. 
Newman. The church building was built by members of the church 
with some community people helping. The church was named Newman 
Chapel Baptist Church to show their appreciation to the Newman 



25 



family for donating the land. 

In 194 3, the present property was bought because the church 
had grown and needed more parking and cemetery space. The old 
building was sold and later torn down. The first service in the 
new church was held on Easter Sunday, April, 1945. 

As growth took place, more space was needed for Sunday School 
classrooms. The addition was begun in June of 1962. 

Other changes that took place within the church included: 
the walls under the belfry were removed; some Sunday School 
classrooms were divided; the ceiling in the sanctuary was lowered 
to cut the heating costs; a portico was added to the front 
replacing the semi-circle of steps; and a baptistry was 
installed. 

In October 1980, the church voted to build a pastorium, which 
was completed in July, 1981. Rev. Alton Dendy and his family was 
the first family to live there. 

Early in March of 1986, work began on the addition of the 
Educational Building and Fellowship Hall. A month after the work 
on the new addition was completed, the parking lot was paved. 

The church has ordained five ministers since 1920. They 
include J.I. Vinson, Carl Carpenter, Dale Cannon, Tommy Lamb, and 
Jason Griffin. 

Twenty-one ministers and twenty-one deacons have served 
Newman Chapel Baptist Church over the years. Through the hard 
work and dedication of these men, many good things have taken 
place at the church. God has truly blessed us and is continuing 
to bless us today. 



BURNINGTOWN BAPTIST CHURCH HISTORY 

On June 1, 1839, 12 members of what is now First Baptist 
Church, Franklin, who resided on Burningtown, requested to be 
dismissed from First Baptist to form a constitution of a new 
church on Burningtown. These members were Thomas Welch, Jacob 
Shope, Hester Welch, Isabel Shope, Mary Mashburn, Elizabeth 
Barnes, Ann Clampitt, Sarah Clampitt, Mary Barnes, Elizabeth 
Hannah, Orpha Hannah, and Elizabeth Clampitt. On June 15, 1839, 
these twelve members along with Esther Morgan, Elizabeth Rowland, 
and Winifred Lovingood met "at the meeting house on Burningtown 
Creek" for the purpose of organizing a church. Elders or members 
of the presbytery meeting with them were George F. Caler, Joshua 
Ammons, James Kimsey and Joshua Hall. From this meeting, these 15 
people became charter members of the newly constituted Burningtown 
Baptist Church. From there the group met as a church in private 
homes or at the schoolhouse for worship services. The first 
pastor was George F. Caler and the first deacons were Thomas Welch 
and Jacob Siler. 

There were evidently two separate church groups which met on 
Burningtown. Recorded in the minutes of December, 1859, there was 
a consolidation of congregations, which was called the upper and 
lower houses or evidently the ones which met at the upper and 
lower schoolhouses . Fifteen members of the upper congregation 
were joined with the others at this time. The first recorded 
death of any of the 15 charter members to die was Elizabeth Barnes 
who died September 13, 1857. The last charter member to die was 
Elizabeth Clampitt who died April, 1893. 

On July 11, 1903, a request was granted for 22 members of the 

26 



church to go into a constitution to form a new church on lotia 
Creek. These members left Burningtown Baptist Church to form what 
is now Iotla Baptist Church. 

The churches in this area, including Burningtown, during 
these next years, belonged to and sent delegates to the 
Tuckaseigee Association. The first meeting on record of 
Burningtown Church sending messengers to the Macon Baptist 
Association was September 1. 1904. 

On November 11, 1905, the church voted to build a new church 
on the hill near the cemetery. The church met for the first 
service in the new church on Sunday, June 9, 1907. The pastor, 
Elder W.L. Bradley, preached using the text from Psalm 122:1. 

On April 12, 1925, the church agreed to build a new church, 
however there was no mention in the records of this action until 
December 18, 1927. The action taken was a decision to move the 
old church off the hill and rebuild it on the present site. Most 
of the material from the old building was used in the new 
construction and this structure was used until 1947. 

On Thursday June 15, 1939, the church observed their 100th 
Anniversary. Presiding was John E. Rickman and the devotional was 
given by Rev. R.F. Mayberry. Other ministers on the program were 
W.L. Bradley, J.S. Stanbury, P.H. Passmore, C.F. Rogers, G.A. 
Cloer and N.E. Holden. 

In August 1947 the church agreed to build a new church on the 
same site where the old building stood. On this same date Rev. 
C.C. Welch was elected as pastor. Church services were held in 
the Old Burningtown School while the new church was under 
construction. The new church was completed in 1948 and except for 
minor changes is till in use by the church today. The latest 
addition to the church facility is an educational building and 
fellowship hall which was completed in early 1986 and dedicated on 
August 3, 1986. 

The Burningtown Church buildings and cemetery are located on 
approximately 5 acres of land and is fronted by Burningtown Creek, 
making it a beautiful natural setting for a church. In 1989, the 
church celebrated their 150th Anniversary making then one of the 
older churches in Macon County. Even though the church is now 151 
years old, Burningtown remains an active church both in the 
Association and the community in which they minister. Twenty- 
seven pastors have faithfully "shepherded" the church. The 
present pastor is Rev. Edwin Crisp. 



ANNUITY REPORT FOR NORTH CAROLINA 

There are now 2,162 North Carolina churches and associations 
contributing to retirement plans. North Carolina has 1,972 signed 
Cooperative Agreements! More than any other state! The number of 
churches participating at the old Plan A level of $33.34 has 
decreased to less than 100. The average annuitant in North 
Carolina receives $276.39 per month. North Carolina has 3,436 
members making contributions to Annuity Board retirement plans. 
There are 1,889 annuitants receiving benefits each month in North 
Carolina - $522,109.84 each month. It's exciting to think about 
what has been done to help ministers retire with dignity. Strong 
efforts have been made to make all of our churches (and ministers) 
aware of the opportunities and the need to act on them. But there 
is still so much to be done! 

27 



Consider these facts: Only 64% of our churches are 
participating in our retirement plans - even after all these years 
of opportunity; Of this 64%, many do not actually make 
contributions. The minister does this on his own; Small 
contributions make the annuitant's benefits small: In North 
Carolina 175 receive less than $50, 288 receive less than $100, 
544 receive less than $200, 288 receive less than $300; We have 
151 churches that have signed the Cooperative Agreement, but still 
make no contribution; We have 457 churches that are making 
contributions but still have not signed the Cooperative Agreement. 

Suffice it is to say that there is a great challenge still 
before us to helps ministers prepare for the future and to help 
churches be responsible employers.

for Minister Support 

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

For 105 years Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina has 
been giving children a chance at life. This year we formalized 
that phrase into our first state-wide fund-raising campaign. 

The "Give a child a chance!" Campaign seeks to raise $11 
million over three years to expand Cameron Boys Camp, boost 
general operating income and increase endowment. 

We will also be able to begin a before and after school care 
program in Davidson County, to give security to children of 
working couples, who won't have to go home to empty houses 
anymore. 

Some of the new endowment earnings will increase training to 
help staff deal with ever changing needs among the 1,000 children 
and families they serve each year. 

Baptist Men of North Carolina have agreed to build the new 
Tommy and Jeanie Eller Chuckwagon at Cameron, saving approximately 
$75,000 in construction costs. 

Children's hopes also were bolstered by the return of the 
Thanksgiving Offering voted by messengers to the 1989 state 
convention. While suffering through its 12-year absence, BCH lost 
more than $1 million in revenue. 

In the change from a Homes and Hospital Offering to the 
Thanksgiving Offering, BCH will go 18 months without a special 
collection, a period that encompasses more than an entire fiscal 
year. For the past five years that special collection has meant 
$400,000 to the ministry, a sum that will be difficult to make up 
in the 1990-91 budget. Some churches, aware of the difficulty, 
have promised to begin receiving the Thanksgiving Offering in 
1990. 

The Cooperative Program continues to anchor our budget 
planning from the churches. We urge renewed commitment to 
cooperative giving among our North Carolina churches. It is 
essential, not only for us, but for the entire missions enterprise 
built painstakingly for a century and a half. Baptist Children's 
Homes receives $1.5 million from the Cooperative Program receipts 
each year. That is the stackpole around which we build our other 
income planning. A decrease in Cooperative Program dollars to 
Baptist Children's Homes would seriously jeopardize our ability to 
care for children. 

28 



In August, BCH signed an agreement with Gaston County 
Department of Social Services to operate two emergency care homes 
owned by the county. That raises to 11 the number of emergency 
cares homes BCH operates. That service, in which a child at risk 
of abuse or neglect can receive shelter right away, is the service 
most in demand throughout the state. Children stay a maximum of 
60 days while BCH works with the custodian to determine a long- 
term plan of care. 

In 1991 BCH will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 
founding of Broyhill Home, our westernmost campus, in 
Waynesville/Clyde. With the help of J.E. Broyhill and his family, 
the home opened in 1971 on 91 hilly acres. It has capacity for 48 
children in group care and for eight girls in emergency care. 

Baptist Children's Homes has a 105-year history. But its 
history is just the knot that ties it to a boundless, unbroken 
ribbon of promise that stretches beyond the future to wrap 
children and families with eternal blessings.

Mr. Bruce Bryant 



BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

The historical records of the North Carolina Foundation will 
reveal 1989 and 1990 to be significant in its 70 year history. 
Organized following action taken at the 1919 Convention and 
chartered by the State of North Carolina in 1920 as a charitable 
corporation, the Trustee agency of the Convention has only in 
recent years begun to have an impact in providing financial 
support for Baptist institutions and mission causes. 

Charged with the responsibility of creating greater awareness 
among Baptists within North Carolina concerning estate stewardship 
as a viable and significant means of providing financial support 
of Christian endeavors fostered by our churches, the Baptist 
Foundation assists individuals in the establishment of endowment 
and trust funds. Through these funds, financial support is 
provided the donor's chosen Christian cause or causes on a 
continuing basis for years to come, long after the donor's death. 

The growth of the Foundation, in terms of assets managed, has 
been significant during the past few years. Since January 1, 
1988, the assets placed under management of the Foundation has 
increased by over $13 million through May, 1990. This exceeds the 
asset growth goals in 1986 for a five year period. 

Trust income distributed to Baptist institutions 

and mission causes 1988 and 1989 $1,106,930 

Trust income distributed to individuals with 

Baptist causes named as charitable remainderman 

during 1988 and 1989 $1,361,836 

Assets held in trust and endowment funds as of 

June 1, 1990 (unaudited) $26,176,481 

Assets held in trust and endowment funds as of 

December 31, 1989 (audited) $18,133,634 



29 



Gifts of appreciated assets, such as stock and real estate, 
can be placed in trust to generate income for individuals and then 
pay income to Christian causes beyond their lifetime. As a result 
of this unique opportunity to give, older adults are realizing the 
joy of establishing life income trusts. This plan often provides 
a significant increase in personal income, by-pass of capital gain 
taxes, creation of a charitable deduction for income tax and 
estate taxes, and assures an eventual gift to Christian endeavors. 

A new home for the Baptist Foundation was built during 1989 
and early 1990. The 6,000 square foot office building was 
constructed from gifts from individuals and is located on property 
provided by the Baptist State Convention next to the Baptist 
Building in Cary. The new facility was occupied in February 1990, 
and provides much needed space for the work of the staff as well 
as for conferences and meetings. Baptist groups are invited to 
use the meeting rooms when in the Raleigh/Cary area. We extend an 
invitation to church groups to call and arrange a visit to the 
newest building used for the Lord's service by North Carolina 
Baptists. 

The Foundation employs seven full time employees and operates 
under the direction of a 20 member Board of Directors elected by 
the Baptist State Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin S. Coates 
Executive Director 



BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

"The largest health-science building program ever in North 
Carolina has changed the landscape on Hawthorne Hill, and the 
changes continue in rapid succession. . . One thing that hasn't 
changed is the institution's tradition for delivery of 
compassionate health care. That will never change." This 
statement, from Dr. Charles P. Nicholson, Jr., Baptist Hospital 
Trustee and Chairman of the Medical Center Board of Directors, is 
both a report and a commitment. 

Another building in this $190 million expansion program has 
recently been completed and occupied. The Clinical Sciences 
Building will house most of the Medical Center's ambulatory 
services, and has been termed a "medical supermarket," where 
patients may do "one-stop shopping." The building will also 
accommodate an Ambulatory Surgery Unit, Medical Center 
Administrative Offices, and other functions. Nearing completion, 
is the Day Care Center for children of medical center employees. 
Under construction, is an addition to the MRI (Magnetic Resonance 
Imaging) Building, and a significant addition to the 
Patient/Visitor Parking Deck. Construction on the Center on Aging 
Building is scheduled to begin in early 1991 with the completion 
date set for the spring of 1993. 

The purpose of all these new facilities, according to 
hospital president, Len B. Preslar, Jr., is to "enable us to 
respond to patient needs better than ever before." In addition to 
continuation and improvement of many established procedures, 
several new diagnostic and treatment programs have been started 
recently. The Organ Transplant Program added a new dimension when 
it performed the first single-lung transplant in North Carolina. 

30 



Bone Marrow transplants are also being performed now in our 
Baptist Hospital. A Cranio-facial Clinic, to correct major 
deformities of the skull and upper face during the first year of 
life, opened recently. New laser technology provides an improved 
method for clearing out atherosclerotic deposits in the carotid 
arteries of the neck. New surgical techniques make possible 
better treatment of complicated retinal detachment. Orthopedic 
Surgeons began use of the Ilizarov Technique for the repair and 
lengthening of broken bones. New approaches are being used 
effectively in the treatment of children with Cerebral Palsy. 
Bowman Gray/Baptist Hospital is the only medical center in the 
nation using and evaluating Cliodean, a non-narcotic pain killer 
which has proven effective in controlling pain following surgery 
and for cancer patients. 

Through these various services we provided 210,456 days of 
care for 22,607 patient admissions last year. In addition to 
these, there were approximately 388,000 ambulatory patient visits 
in the various clinics, the Emergency Department, the Day 
Hospital, and in Ambulatory Surgery. These patients came from all 
across North Carolina and from thirty-four other states. Also the 
number of patients being referred to us from foreign countries is 
increasing as the reputation of the Medical Center spreads 
throughout the world. 

The Department of Pastoral Care continues to strengthen its 
reputation both as a service agency and as a teaching facility. 
Last year, the department provided more than 29,000 ministries to 
hospital patients, almost 19,000 services to families, and more 
than 14,000 services for hospital and church staff members and 
their families. The Minister's Care Plan, a joint program with 
the Baptist State Convention, had 1,446 sessions with more than 
200 different clergy families last year. The new Missionary 
Counseling and Support Services Program saw 48 individuals in its 
first six months. The Divisions of Clinical Pastoral 
Education/Chaplaincy had 53 students enrolled. 

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1990, the hospital 
received $692,946.24 through the Cooperative Program and 
$271,361.24 through the Homes and Hospital Offering and direct 
gifts. Cooperative Program Funds are used for the Department of 
Pastoral Care, and other church gifts help to provide Benevolent 
Care for financially needy patients. The hospital staff and 
patients are most grateful for this continuing financial support.

Marshall Fouts 



BAPTIST RETIREMENT HOMES REPORT 

Making life for Older Adults the Best of Time is the 
continuing goal of Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina 
Inc., which operates four residential facilities for Older Adults 
around the state - in Albemarle, Asheville, Hamilton and Winston- 
Salem. 

In Asheville, our efforts include a move toward expanding the 
Western North Carolina Baptist Home. The Board of Trustees of 
Baptist Retirement Homes applied in July for permission to 
construct the 60 nursing care beds the state is allocating to 
Buncombe County in 1990. 

31 



State approval of its plans will be the next step toward 
adding a health-care unit to the facility, a unit offering skilled 
and immediate nursing care. Currently the only nursing care 
provided by Baptist Retirement Homes is the 85-bed nursing-care 
unit at Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston-Salem, the 
newest facility operated by Baptist Retirement Homes. 

Around the state, the other homes face a promising year. 

In Winston-Salem, Brookridge Retirement Community celebrates 
its first birthday in 1990. It is the largest of the facilities, 
providing five levels of care - independent living in garden 
homes, independent living in apartment, and assisted living, 
intermediate nursing care and skilled nursing care in its health- 
care unit - to 350 Older Adults. 

The facilities in Albemarle and Hamilton provide assisted 
living in a residential setting to 30 Older Adults each. Both 
programs are greatly enhanced by the strong support of the 
surrounding community and its churches. The Brotherhood, WMU and 
senior adult clubs at many nearby churches provide fellowship, 
entertainment, skills and physical labor, household needs - 
whatever they see are needed by each home. 

The Albemarle Baptist Home also offers respite care for those 
families who care for an Older Adult and need some time away from 
that responsibility. The cost of the care is paid by the family, 
and it provides overnight care for whatever length of time the 
family needs. 

It, and other alternative forms of residential care for Older 
Adults, are additional ways being explored by the Homes to meet 
the growing needs of Older Adult Baptist population in this state. 

Please pray for our ministry. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Roy Rickman 



THE BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT 

We need your help! 

Never in the history of Southern Baptists has there been a 
time of more conflict and tension, much of it based on 
misunderstanding or a lack of correct information. As never 
before, we need informed Baptists to make the right decisions for 
the Kingdom's work in the name of Christ. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get 
the Recorder into more Baptist homes than ever before. Your 
support as a subscriber and reader and your encouragement to 
others will enable the paper to better serve the constituency with 
accurate and helpful information delivered to Baptist homes and 
churches . 

Baptists must have a single source of news and information 
upon which to make decisions and evaluate ministries. The 
Recorder is that source; nothing else matches the paper as a 
single source of news, information, inspiration, and challenge in 
our missions efforts together. 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to 
increase the readership of the Recorder , Church News Service (CNS) 
has been launched in 1990. This system lets any congregation have 
their church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Recorder 
vhich saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for 

32 



less than what it costs to produce the church newsletter, CNS 
gives the entire Baptist communication package to each family in 
the congregation. 

The paper will focus more and more attention on North 
Carolina Baptists with news, features and inspirational articles 
which will encourage individuals and churches in their witness and 
ministry, where they are and to the ends of the rapidly changing 
world. 

Never has God given Baptists a greater opportunity; never 
have there been as many difficulties and obstacles to overcome. 
One sure way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to 
effective witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the 
issues and be adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves 
today. 

Of the 45 churches in Macon Association, 8 churches take the 
BIBLICAL RECORDER with a total subscription of 166. 

For more information on how your church can subscribe or use 
CNS. contact:

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

This year the Brotherhood Commission did not submit any new 
programs. They feel that we have enough programs, but need to 
work harder on the programs that we have in effect now. 

The North Carolina Baptist Mens' Medical Bus is in operation. 
If we have a need for the bus, it will come to our county. The 
bus has a dental chair, a screening room and an examination room. 
Money is still needed in order to pay for the bus. Donations may 
be sent to the Brotherhood Office in Cary. 

The North Carolina Baptist Men and the Polish Project is in 
full swing. Several teams have gone on two week stays. The work 
trips for this year are all taken, but there are openings for next 
year. If anyone can go, contact the Cary Office for details. 

The Board did decide that the Associational Brotherhood 
Directors and RA Directors need to take more of the training that 
is made available and are having more sessions this year. The 
cost of these training sessions is $35.00 per person. This 
included 3 meals, room and cost of materials. We feel since the 
Directors must take time off from work that the Churches should 
cover expense. These training sessions are a great benefit to 
every Church and to the Directors as they meet and fellowship with 
Brotherhood Directors across the state. It is important to know 
what other Associations are doing to promote God's Work. 
Brotherhood Director Training is scheduled as follows: August 10- 
11 at Caraway Conference Center; August 17-18, Lay Witness at 
Caraway; the Baptist Men's Conference is January 18-20 at The 
First Baptist Church in Winston-Salem (the cost of this meeting 
is approximately $125.00 per person and the Church should bear 
this expense) ; February 15-16 Lay Witnessing Conference at 

33 



Caraway. 

RA Directors' training is as follows: September 21-23, RA 
Counselors Campcraft training at Caraway; October 13-14, 
Pioneer/High School Baptist Young Men Officers and Leaders 
training at Caraway. Other training sessions will follow. Again, 
we encourage each Church to send Men and Boys to these training 
sessions to improve our part in God's Work. 

The Brotherhood Board asks that each Church send Lay People 
to the State and National Southern Baptist Conventions. 

In our Association, we have added some Brotherhood units 
which we are grateful. Let me encourage the Churches that do not 
have Brotherhood to start units. 

If I can be of any help, please give me a call anytime. Home 
- (704)524-8019; Work - (704)369-8186.

1990 ANNUAL REPORT 
CHRISTIAN ACTION LEAGUE OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 

The last 12 months have been eventful ones in the ministry of 
applied Christianity. 

LEGISLATIVE ISSUES 

1. GAMBLING 

As this report is being prepared the battle is still on concerning 
a state-wide lottery. The gambling industry is well-staffed with 
its personnel and lobbyists who relentlessly pursue their interest 
among the members of the General Assembly. Legislators are 
constantly barraged by one of them to "let the people vote" to put 
the state into the gambling business. 

2. DRUNK DRIVING 

Proposals from Governor Jim Martin and even a Legislative Study 
Committee that would really toughen our drunk driving laws seem to 
be tied up in a House-Senate Conference Committee. Some well- 
known Senate defense attorneys are determined to keep anything of 
real substance from passing. 

The pending legislation calls for: 

a. The lowering of the breathalyzer blood alcohol level 
from .10 to .08; 

b. The banning of open containers of all alcoholic 
beverages in motor vehicles; 

c. Increasing the civil revocation of drivers' licenses 
from 10 to 30 days; (North Carolina is the only state in 
the nation with less than a 30-day loss of driving 
privileges for registering a . 10 or above on the 
breathalyzer. ) 

d. Increasing the fines for being convicted of drunk 
driving; (In 1947 the minimum fine was $100, and it is 
still the same 43 years later.) 

3 . ABORTION 

a. Because of the outstanding work of Representative "Skip" 
Stam of Wake County, the House voted to reduce the state's 
abortion fund from $400,000 to $100,000. These remaining 
funds could not be used for abortion as a means of birth 
control. They could only be utilized for abortion when the 
mother's life is endangered, or in cases that result from 
rape or incest. However, the Senate voted to leave the 

funding at its current rate, so the measure is now tied up in a 
conference committee. 

b. A parental consent proposal overwhelmingly passed the 
House requiring a parent's approval before an abortion could 
be performed on a minor. (Such consent is required before a 
school official can give an aspirin to a student, but such 
consent is not required for a minor to receive an abortion.) 
But it appears that the Senate will not approve this measure. 

4 . MISCELLANEOUS 

Other legislative proposals such as raising the tax on alcoholic 

36 



beverages, requiring the teaching in public schools of sexual 
abstinence outside of marriage to combat the teenage pregnancy 
problem, and making the possession of child pornography a felony 
were considered but were side-tracked by the Senate. Incidently 
the tax on beer has not been increased in North Carolina since 
1969. This reveals how strong the beer lobbyists are. 

CHURCH AND COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE 
In the past year, the League has successfully assisted in 
alcoholic beverage campaigns in places such as Hertford County, 
Pamlico County, Concord, Lumberton, Manteo, Randleman, 
Waynesville, etc. in their efforts to defeat various referenda 
such as liquor-by-the-drink and beer-wine sales. 

We have sought to keep the Christian community informed on moral 
and ethical issues through our publication Tomorrow , and through 
speaking in churches, pastor's conferences, and civic clubs. 
Thank you for your prayers and financial support in our ministry 
of applied Christianity.

CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION REPORT 
WHAT IS THE QUESTION? 

A Baptist preacher once entitled his sermon, "If Christ Is 
The Answer, What Is The Question?" The sermon had three points. 
"How can I live with myself?" "How can I live with others?" How 
can I live with God?" 

Your Baptist colleges attempt to confront students with 
life's most important questions: 

What is the purpose and meaning of the created order? 

How will I spend my one life? 

How should I measure success? 

How much is enough? 

How can I best serve God and my fellow human beings? 

The best gift churches and parents can give to their youth is 
a college education where Christian people are seeking answers to 
truly important questions. The Baptist college experience 
provides challenges and opportunities for young people to become 
whole, healthy persons both intellectually and spiritually. 
People who can think clearly about life, including faith and 
vocation, are the kind of persons needed to establish homes, grow 
churches, and build a better world. 

TRIPOD 

Dr. S. L. Stealey, the late founding president of 
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, once said, "The Tripod 
upon which Baptists have been based more than one hundred years of 
progress has been MISSIONS, EVANGELISM, and EDUCATION. To shorten 
one leg of this tripod is to endanger the whole." This is a 
statement all Christians should ponder. 

37 



North Carolina Baptist colleges are guided, as are the 
churches and the Convention, by historic Baptist principles: 

- The authority of the Scriptures and the Lordship of Christ. 

- The competence of the individual and the priesthood of 
believers. 

- The autonomy of the local church and cooperation in 
Christian service. 

- Freedom of religion and a free church in a free state. 

The enduring ties between Baptist colleges, Baptist churches, 
and the Baptist State Convention help to guarantee the tripod's 
balance and a healthy spirit of partnership in the Gospel.

COOPERATIVE PROGRAM REPORT 

Since the formation of the Southern Baptist Convention in 
1845, Southern Baptists have rallied around missions. In 1925, we 
gave the name "Cooperative Program" to the way Baptists choose to 
work together to share the gospel. Our Baptist forefathers knew 
that few, if any, congregations would have the funds, the 
personnel, or training to reach all the world alone. If would 
take cooperation. It would take all churches working and giving 
together. 

Can you imagine trying to reach the world without the 
Cooperative Program? Certainly not! By our Cooperative Program 
giving we will be able to enlarge our witness at home and abroad. 

What is the Cooperative Program? 

The Cooperative Program is the life line of Southern 
Baptist mission work. 

The Cooperative Program supports more than 3,800 
missionaries as they serve in over 110 countries in the world. 

The Cooperative Program helps us to proclaim the gospel to 
over 167 million lost people in the United States. 

The Cooperative Program undergirds over 14,000 students in 
our six seminaries. 

Without giving through the Cooperative Program there are 
thousands, perhaps even millions who will never hear the gospel 
message of the Lord Jesus Christ or see the reality of Jesus in 
the lives of others. 

The Cooperative Program will only work as well as each of us 
do our part to be faithful to the Lord. It's my desire that each 
of our 45 churches in Macon Baptist Association will grow in 
giving through the greatest mission effort in history, "The 
Cooperative Program!"

Credentials and Ordination Com. 



DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS REPORT 

My family and I have committed our lives to the service of 
our Lord. The transitions have not always been easy. However, 
His blessings have been tremendous. We are happy to be serving 
our Lord through serving you in the Macon Baptist Association. 
Thank you for the sacred trust you've shown in calling us to this 
opportunity of ministry. We pray that we shall always represent 
you well and bring glory to God throughout our land. 

These last seven and one-half months have been the most 
challenging and exciting of my life. God's presence and guidance 
has been so evident in all that has happened. The pace has been 
difficult. Much was expected and much has been done. I have 
learned so much about so many opportunities and challenges. Our 
Here's Hope Simultaneous Revivals and World Missions Conference 
were both very successful events. God moved across our 
association in a mighty way as our people responded to the 
challenge and invitation of His inspired servants. Many of you 
committed your lives to Christ in specific ways during these 
events. Providing opportunities for each of you to develop in 
those commitments is our commitment and challenge. God summons us 
as individuals, churches, and associations to fulfill His mission 
and purpose. 

God has given us a vision for our association. Many of you 
have expressed that same vision. I pray for wisdom to lead in 
such a way as to bring that vision to reality. We, as an 
association, are on the verge of entering a totally new era. YOU 
are NEEDED in order for this dream to come true. However, I 
believe that several other needs must be met before this can 
happen. 

We need to understand what the association is. The 
association is a fellowship of churches on mission in their 
setting. Historically, the association was born out of the need 
for mutual support or fellowship among churches. Churches are 
autonomous or independent but they should also follow the Biblical 
pattern of interdependence or cooperation as well. The bottom 
line is that we need each other. Later, as associations 
developed, missions became an emphasis. Matters of faith and 
practice were handled at the associational level among the 
fellowship of churches. Just as no church member is an island 
unto himself but needs others in order to fulfill God's purpose 
and mission, every church needs the fellowship and support of 
others churches in association to accomplish our task. Thus, 

39 



every church is important and is desperately needed within the 
participating framework of our association. Each church has a 
voice and responsibility. The association is what the churches 
make it. 

We need to understand the purpose of our association. What 
is our reason for existence? What is our purpose? What does God 
want us to accomplish together where we are? We would never doubt 
that God has a purpose for every person's life. Likewise, God has 
a purpose for every church and association. Discovery and 
definition of that purpose will set the direction of our energies, 
resources, gifts, and abilities toward the fulfilling of that 
purpose. Proverbs 29:18 states, "Where there is no vision (reason 
for existence, prophecy), the people perish." The statistics of 
our churches and association over, at least, the last five years 
have shown a lack of vision. In many cases, we have not even 
remained on the plateau but have declined. No one church can do 
all God expects in our land but we can do together what we cannot 
do alone. 

We need to emphasize our similarities , the things we have in 
common, rather than our differences. We must separate the trivial 
from the vitally important. This takes wisdom and commitment! 
Let's dwell on our common purpose and mission God has shown us in 
Jesus Christ. Every individual and church must be free to seek 
and follow what each believes God's mission to be. God created us 
unique. We cannot be exactly alike. Our differences in size, 
manner of worship, traditions, and needs serve to reveal our need 
to be interdependent on one another. We must find unity in the 
midst of diversity. Jesus chose disciples that were very 
different from one another but, in Jesus, they found unity, 
fellowship, and purpose. 

We need to learn to trust . This is the essence of faith. We 
may understand what the association is and why it exists or even 
acknowledge our differences, but without trusting one another, we 
shall never experience the fullness God has in store. Trust is 
the basis for any long-term and successful relationship. Trust 
must be a two-way street in order for all to experience its power 
to bring fellowship. Openness of communication and honesty in 
relationships are the results of trust. Even the worst of 
disagreements can be resolved in an atmosphere of love and trust. 
Our fellowship and support will never rise above our ability or 
level of trust. We must practice trust through example before we 
can preach or teach the essence of faith. Trusting must begin 
with each person and move from there through the church and 
association. 

Our ministry in Macon Baptist Association will be directed 
toward helping us understand what the association is and why it 
exists, helping us discover and dwell on our similarities rather 
than our differences, encouraging our strengths instead of our 
weaknesses, working to enhance our fellowship and raise our level 
of trust, and challenging our pastors, churches, and members to 
step out in faith and travel where we have never gone before. 

God has blessed our association with so many gifted 
individuals. I feel privileged to serve with each of you. With 
the challenges and opportunities ahead, we each feel an 
overwhelming excitement and a sense of anxiety. Looking at our 
plateaued or declining situation, let's make the commitment to 
turn this around. We need your input concerning your needs in 
order for us to better provide solutions to our problems. Helping 

40 



you get from where you are to where you want to be cannot be 

accomplished through our guesses or assumptions. We need your 

help. We must work together! 

Our prayer is for many fruitful years of service together. 

No one can do this alone. We really need each other as we labor 

together with God. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lester Evans, DOM 



DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING REPORT 

Discipleship Training enjoyed a good year last year. Some 
new groups were organized and some old ones strengthened, but many 
churches are still doing work which is not being counted. Many do 
not realize that training occurs when teachers, deacons, etc., are 
being equipped for their job. 

Five children participated in the Children's Bible Drill. We 
should have many more children in the Drill with many more 
churches sending children. 

We look forward to a greater year with more people being 



discipled. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Mary Powell, Director 



EVANGELISM REPORT 

Evangelism is the doctrine and preaching of evangelical 
principles. Evangelical means maintaining the fundamental 
doctrines of the Protestant faith, to be spiritually minded and do 
the will of the Lord. Therefore, evangelism should start in the 
heart of the pastor and spread to every person who is a member of 
one of the forty-five (45) churches in our association. 

This past year there were sixteen (16) of our churches who 
participated in the "Here's Hope" Revivals with one hundred and 
twenty two (122) rededications and fifteen (15) new professions of 
faith. 

This past year the association participated in a One Day 
Soul-Winning Workshop with fourteen (14) churches represented and 
forty-one (41) people present. 

For this coming year we hope to have a Lay Evangelism School 
so our pastors and laypersons can be certified to teach Lay 
Evangelism. 

Our association has help and information. When we seek we 
shall find. If we knock it will be opened unto us. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Roy Lindsey, Chairman

FOREIGN MISSION REPORT 

Today, many of the traditional areas of missionary service 
are becoming even stronger in the challenge. Several facing 
issues that affect the work of the church are economic problems of 
inflation, unemployment, terrorism, human rights, violations, 
natural disasters, and drugs. 

Global strategies for reaching the world require a 
sacrificial level of personal commitment and involvement. 

According to the Foreign Mission Board: - 5.1 billion people 
share this planet. - 1.3 billion haven't heard the gospel. 
Established in 1845 the Foreign Mission Board is the overseas 
mission channel for the Southern Baptist Missionaries assigned to 
more than 115 countries. Support of this ministry is through the 
Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

Approximately 5% of Seminary - Trained Southern Baptist 
serving in Church related ministries have answered God's call to 

43 



Foreign Missions. Just in this past year Baptist work has moved 
into 135 cities previously untouched by Baptist. The Southern 
Baptist Association sent 310 new missionaries and more than 10,000 
short term volunteers abroad in 1989. Medical missionaries and 
their workers treated almost 1.4 million patients. In comparison 
to 1988, 227,437 new believers were baptized, this was a 14.9% 
increase. 

According to FMB President Keith Parks: "Southern Baptists 
need to know that the spiritual human, and financial resources 
they are investing in foreign missions are being multiplied and 
utilized by God's Spirits in a significant way". 

Missions must be creative and flexible to meet today's 
obstacles and challenges to ministry.

HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission Board has reinforced its commitment to reach 
the goals of Bold Mission Thrust in these next ten years, namely 
that there be 50,000 congregations proclaiming, winning, and 
baptizing 500,000 people per year and that there be 5,000 home 
missionaries on the field by the year 2000. 

The Here's Hope Revivals of this past spring were 
participated in by approximately 80% of the churches. A final 
statistical report is not available at this time but we hear many 
exciting results were experienced. The special emphasis of People 
Search, Scripture distribution, and Promotional announcements 
helped much in exposing communities to opportunities for worship 
and revival. 

New church starts remain one of the major goals of the Home 
Mission Board. Although our need isn't as great in Macon 
Association, many exciting and encouraging reports of new church 
starts were given in the Southern Baptist Convention's Home 
Mission Report in New Orleans in June, 1990. 

Budget items were readjusted this past year to accommodate a 
short fall in the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. The Board is 
still able to operate in the black with the Board looking to God 
with gratitude for all He has provided. The Board encourages all 
Baptists to exercise the power in prayer for the ministry 
objectives of your Home Mission Board.

LBJ JOB CORPS CENTER 
CHAPLAIN REPORT 

On December 1, 1989 The Chaplain Assistance was established 
at the LBJ Job Corps Center. On that date I assumed my duties as 
Chaplain of this great center. This ministry has given me the 
greatest opportunity I have ever had to serve the Lord. Each day

brings a new challenge. 

In these few short months great things have happened here at 
the center. Many have come for Christian counseling. We now have 
in place a weekly Bible study. This is exciting. 

So many have had a part in this ministry for which we are so 
grateful. We cannot name every one, but we just want to say 
thanks to each one who has, and still are having, a part in this 
work. Churches all over Macon County have this ministry on their 
prayer calendars. We are so grateful for your prayers and 
concern. 

Last, but not least, I want to thank the Director of Missions 
of Macon Baptist Association for his help and prayers in this 
ministry. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Carpenter 



MACON BAPTIST ASSOCIATION HISTORY 
1989-1990 

The annual for the Eighty-sixth annual meeting of Macon 
Baptist Association was dedicated to the Rev. and Mrs. Cecil Frady 
in appreciation of their services to Macon Baptist Association. 
He retired effective December 31, 1989, after nineteen years of 
service. 

The annual was also in memorium to the Rev. Howard Willis who 
was serving as chaplain of Angel Community Hospital at the time of 
his death. He had also served as Director of Missions, and had 
served as pastor of Liberty, Pine Grove, Oak Grove, Oak Dale and 
Mashburn Branch. 

ANNUAL MEETING 

The Eighty-sixth Session of Macon Baptist Association opened 
Thursday, August 17, 1989, at 7:00 p.m., at West Franklin Baptist 
Church. The theme for the annual meeting was "Going, Sowing, 
Reaping" and the scripture reference was Psalm 126:6. The meeting 
began with piano meditation by Terry Henson, call to worship by 
Moderator Melvin Brooks, and Spurgeon Freeman leading the hymn 
"Wherever He Leads, I'll Go." The Rev. Clifford Patterson, Pastor 
of West Franklin, welcomed the group, read the scripture, and led 
in prayer. 

The Rev. S.J. Waters, Chairman of the Missions Search 
Committee, reported that after careful and prayerful consideration 
of all possible candidates, and confident of the leadership of the 
Holy Spirit, this committee recommend the Rev. Lester Evans for 
the position of Director of Missions beginning January 1, 1990, 
when the resignation of the Rev. Cecil Frady becomes effective. 
Motion was made and seconded that the recommendation of the search 
committee be accepted. When the vote was taken there was a 
discrepancy between the number of votes cast and the number of 
registered messengers, so the moderator called for and received 
unanimous standing vote in support of the Rev. Lester Evans if he 
agreed to accept the position. 

The Rev. Cecil Frady was presented with a plaque in 
appreciation of 19 years of dedicated service and leadership to 
Macon Baptist Association. A love gift of $3,299.39 was also 

47 



presented to him and Mrs. Frady, and they received a standing 
ovation from those present.

associational officers, 21 visitors and one State representative, 
present, and 37 churches represented.

at 9:25 p.m. 

The second session opened at 3:55 p.m., August 18, 1989, at 
Iotla Baptist Church with Terry Henson at the piano and Spurgeon 
Freeman leading the hymn "Lord, Lay Some Soul Upon My Heart." The 
Rev. Steve Reeves, Pastor of Iotla, welcomed the session, read 
scripture and led in prayer. It was reported that the Rev. Lester 
Evans was seeking God's will regarding the decision to the 
position of Director of Missions, and he had requested the 
Association to also be much in prayer that the right decision be 
made. After allowing time for additional prayer requests, the 
Rev. Tommy Madden led in prayer. The statistical report showed 80 
messengers representing 27 churches, 7 associational officers, 3 
State representatives, and 24 visitors present for the afternoon 
session. The Rev. Tommy Madden, Pastor of Sugarfork, brought the 
message, followed by an alter prayer for the Director of Missions 
decision led by Mr. Cliff Cook, and grace for the evening meal by 
the Rev. Ronald Owens, Pastor of Higdonville. A delicious meal 
was served by Iotla Baptist Church. 

The night session opened at 6:55 p.m., with piano meditation 
by Terry Henson, and Spurgeon Freeman leading the hymn "Bringing 
In The Sheaves," and scripture and prayer led by the Rev. Steve 
Reeves. Following the committee reports, the installation of 
officers was held and special music was presented by the Macon 
Baptist Association Choir. The Rev. Stephen Wall, Pastor of Mount 
Hope, brought the message. The incoming moderator, Rev. Herbert

for a job well done, challenged the group, and gave the 
benediction at the close of the annual meeting at 9:15 p.m.

SEMINARY EXTENSION REPORT 

Seminary Extension in Macon Baptist Association has a bright 
future. Macon Baptist Association has been certified as a 
Seminary Extension Center. As we are planning for a new year 
there are exciting new opportunities in Seminary Extension. We 
hope to begin offering courses in the near future that both 
pastors and lay persons can benefit from. These courses can be 
applied to a new program in Seminary Extension in which a student 
can earn a college level diploma from one of our Southern Baptist 
Seminaries. 

It is our hope that through Seminary Extension we can offer 
continuing educational opportunities for our people and give them 
a goal to work toward. The ultimate goal is to offer all 
participants more opportunities to serve more effectively in their 
respective ministries. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Davis Hooper 



STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

Starting a new church using 90 volunteers making 20,970 
telephone calls, taking literally the Bible verse; "I was in 
prison and you came unto me," beginning a church in an inter- 
racial neighborhood of single mothers living on government 
assistance, confronting the cults with both force and friendship, 
organizing a church with a food and clothing center, and providing 
scholarships for deserving North Carolina Baptist Colleges. 

All of these may seem unusual church ministries, but actually 
they are not. They are everyday, every week, every month 
realities in places near where you live. They are State Missions, 
in the strictest sense of that word "Missions" and the people 
equally dedicated, trained, committed and resourceful as found on 
any other mission field. 

State Missions is a partnership with real people experiencing 
hopes, failures, frustrations and joys. State Missions has 
changed these people's lives so they may, in turn, help change 
other people's lives. State Missions is a partnership with 
churches, associations, but most of all a partnership with you, 
North Carolina Baptist who make it possible through your prayers, 
concern and financial support. 

Submitted By, 
Rev. Tommy Madden 



SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

I would like to begin my report by giving a special thanks to 
all who have so faithfully worked in Sunday School in all the 
churches throughout Macon Association this past year. I know of 
no greater way, as a lay person, to serve our churches than to 
teach God's word. 

In the coming year Sunday School work will become more of a 
challenge to each of us. The desire of the world calls of Sunday 
as a day of leisure and entertainment; God's desire is for His 

57 



people to be in His house on His day to train ourselves and 
worship Him. 

My hope is that not only Sunday School workers but our 
pastors would especially promote Sunday School work continually 
this year. Statistics, even gathered on facts, are nothing but 
past records. Our future begins right now in Sunday School work. 
With 45 churches working, praying, and fellowshipping together in 
a spirit of unity, 1990-91 will bring a great year in all our 
churches. I am so glad to report that all 45 churches have an 
ongoing Sunday School program. 

Yours in Christ, 
Jim Campbell 
Associational SS Director

TRUETT CAMP REPORT 

We had two weeks of girls' camp this year with eleven girls 
accepting Jesus as their Savior and numerous rededications were 
made. A good time was had by all. Lisa Dean was director and 
Donna Lakey was her assistant. 

We had a very good music week again this year with J. Gilbert 
as director. Six people were saved and other decisions were made. 

We will have two weeks of Boys' camp again this year and 
we're looking forward to this. Aud Brown will be over this camp. 

We will be starting our new building this fall. It will be a 
big challenge to us all to support this project. All of our 
associations have information on the building. 

We are grateful for the churches in Region 10 for your 
prayers and support for the camp. We hope you will support it 
through your church budget or by any means that you can. 

We are trying to minister to the people in our region and 
beyond in a spiritual sense as well as physical. Worship and 
Bible study have always been a major part of the camp program. 

Please send us your children and make plans for an outing if 
not a weekend retreat at your camp.

Troy Ledford 



VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT 

What a terrific year to be a part of Vacation Bible School. 
We started in March with a Pre-planning Conference for Pastors and 
church VBS Directors. Materials were displayed, ideas were 
shared, and we all got excited for VBS 1990. 

On March 8 the Associational VBS Team traveled to Brevard for 
regional training. We gathered ideas and learned how to conduct 
our local clinic, which was held March 29 at Franklin First 
Baptist, This was an exciting and rewarding time for all 110 
persons in attendance, representing 20 churches. Churches 
recognized for Achievement in 1989 were - Distinguished: Aquone, 
Cowee, Coweeta, Iotla, Liberty; Advanced: Franklin First, Newman 
Chapel, Ridgecrest, Tellico; Merit: Black Mountain, Buck Creek, 
Cartoogechaye, Mount Hope, Pine Grove, Sugarfork, Walnut Creek, 
Wells Grove. We had a total enrollment for 1989 of 2425 with 41 
professions of faith and 386 new prospects. 

Thank You for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of the 
work that our great Association has to offer each of us. 

Praise the LORD — We're learning to Love each other. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Diane Keener 
MBA VBS Director 



WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

The Woman's Missionary Union of Macon Baptist Association has 
carried out our theme for the year "In His Name: Reach, Teach, and 
Touch. " 

The year began with leadership training at Fruitland Bible 

63 



Institute for all age groups. The training provided a lot of "how 
to's" for the year. In September we were able to share the "how 
to's" with the WMU leaders from the different churches. A group 
of excited ladies went out to serve their churches after the 
training. 

As a result of their excitement, two churches added WMU to 
their programs. Aquone and Briartown are both doing great with 
their WMU organization. 

Some of the most meaningful things that have happened this 
year has been in Mission Action/Personal Witnessing. All of you 
gave more than 400 crossword puzzles and/ or game books for 
Christmas packages for the women at the Correctional Center in 
Raleigh. We have participated in two witnessing seminars as well 
as the showers for Moody Home and the on-going food collection for 
Care-Net. 

The highlight for the year was our Annual Meeting held in 
April at Iotla Baptist Church. The 85 people who attended heard 
Gene and Prissy Tunnell share experiences from their time of 
service in Home and Foreign Missions. The Acteens from several 
churches did the prayer calendar which helped to give special 
emphasis for their year of recognition. 

Join your WMU to reach, teach, and touch in His Name. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
WMU Director
