State Fair Baptist Tent, Sedalia - August 11 

The team from Thousand Hills staffed the Baptist tent at the state fair, 2-6 pm on August 11.  They helped those who came into the tent to register for a free give-away and share their 3-minute testimony of faith in Christ.  

2016 Report 

The need today is great for missional Christians.  A missional Christian is not content for missions being a work of the church, but a part of the whole life of the believer.  Every true believer should be on mission for Christ, and it should affect every area of our lives.  We are to be missionaries sent to a non-Christian culture.  As a missional people we ought to engage our world the same way Jesus did by going out and meeting people where they are.  I challenge every church to seek ways to becoming more missional.  Thousand Hills Baptist Association exists to help our churches to become more missional.
There were two great opportunities this past year for our churches to serve through our association:
1.  Mission Trip to Alaska.  Late June a group from Thousand Hills went on mission to Fairview Loop Baptist Church in Wasilla, Alaska.  The team worked on building a horse corral for a cowboy church.  The team was made up of 11 people from 3 churches.
2.  Missouri State Fair Baptist Tent.  Thousand Hills sent six people from 2 churches to work the Baptist Tent Friday August 12, from 2 - 6 p.m.  During the state fair Missouri Baptists were able to share their testimony to 1206 people.  Of those who heard the gospel 35 made a profession of faith in Christ.  Only eternity will show the true results of the faithful witnesses.
