A Note from the Board of Foreign Missions


Harold & Sandra are Retiring!


After 50 years of faithful service to OFWB and OFWB International, the Board of OFWBI announces the retirement of Harold and Sandra Jones. Their love and commitment to the OFWB Churches worldwide will leave an incredible legacy and a considerable void in many lives. Space does not permit an exhaustive and appropriate medium to express our gratitude. Therefore a formal retirement celebration is being planned for a future date so we all can honor them appropriately for how much they mean to us. A formal announcement of the date, time, and location will be made public when details are finalized.

Harold and Sandra will be the keynote speakers for the worship service at this year’s Annual Convention, Thursday, September 30, at the Maxwell Center in Goldsboro. Please make plans to join us for worship and celebration.

Therefore, due to their forthcoming retirement, the Board has initiated a search for a new Director.

Candidates who wish to be considered should (1) be a committed Christian, (2) have a knowledge of the OFWB denomination, doctrines, programs, and relationships, (3) be one whose education is adequate to function at a high level of efficiency and dealing with mission work. The candidate should also have strong communication skills in both oral and written formats. A full job description is available from any member of the Board, the OFWB headquarters, or the chairman of the Board.

July is University of Mount Olive Month

July has been designated by our Convention as the University of Mount Olive Month. UMO is a private educational institution with an emphasis on personalized, values-based learning within the liberal arts tradition. The University has been recognized as one of the leading private colleges in North Carolina for more than half a century.

The University of Mount Olive was founded by the Original Free Will Baptists as a liberal arts institution with defining Christian principles. The University began as Mount Allen Junior College, located at Cragmont Assembly, where it opened in 1952. It became Mount Olive Junior College after relocating to Mount Olive in 1955 and eventually changed to a four-year program, becoming Mount Olive College, in the 1970s. The institution attained university status in 2014.

The core values promoted by UMO are Honesty and Trustworthiness, Justice and Courage, Responsibility and Gratitude, and Caring and Respect. The University calls for each person to demonstrate the virtues modeled by Jesus Christ.

Dr. Edward Croom currently serves as President of the University of Mount Olive. For more information, please visit UMO’s website at or call at 1-800-653-0854.
