Generosity was the theme of the 48th Annual Meeting of the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association.   The topic of Generous Churches was taught by Keith Dixon, Director of Missions for the Greater Cleveland County Baptist Association in Shelby, North Carolina.   Another special guest talking about giving was Glen Cosper, a long time development officer who is working with the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Foundation.

Dixon shared with the SWBA Executive Team that generous people make generous churches who make generous communities.  Generosity covers far more that just the subject of money.   Dixon gave many examples of churches in his association that have been dramatically changed by teaching on generosity.  For more information about this subject you can go to http://www.generouschurch.com.

Many thanks goes to Pastor Julius Brent and his wife, Kula Brent, who served as very gracious hosts for the annual meeting.  Another very special guest was Marron Cassel, Ambassador of the Gospel as appointed by the President of Liberia.  Marron and Kula led in worship that blessed everyone in attendance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

images       Generosity will be the focus for the annual meeting of the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association.    Teaching on the subject will come from Keith Dixon who has been leading his churches in North Carolina to participate in generosity.  This teaching will cover much more than money discussing other types of generosity as well.

Why focus on generosity?  Many different surveys show us that the state of Wisconsin is one of the last states in charitable giving.  So many of our churches have struggled over the years with becoming self sustaining.    The teaching provided on this day will be a great resource for the members of our churches in the present day and for years to come.  Make plans to come and let us know you are coming by e-mailing us at admin@wisconsinbaptist.org.

The meeting will take place at Hope In Christ Assembly Church in Madison which is located in the Patrick Henry Center at 313 W. Beltline Highway.
