Memo

To: All Original Free Will Baptists

From: The Convention Executive Committee

Date: February 24, 2021

Subject: Postponement of the annual meeting of the Convention

The OFWB Convention Executive Committee met on February 16, 2021 and decided to postpone the 2021 annual meeting of the Convention until sometime in the fall of this year. We traditionally meet in mid-May, but the decision to postpone was deemed necessary due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

No date has been set for the fall meeting. When that date has been decided you will be notified well in advance. It is our prayer that the Covid pandemic will be over or under control enough that we can safely meet at that time.

This pandemic has caused misfortune and tragedy for many throughout the world.  As Christians, we have a great responsibility to show the world how Christians are supposed to act under adverse circumstances.

Let us all unite in prayer for all our Churches, Ministries, Conferences and Convention. Some of our Churches have remained strong while others have not been able to meet for many weeks. Pray that OFWB will remain resilient through all this adversity.

March is Foreign Missions Month

March is designated by our Convention as Foreign Missions Month among Original Free Will Baptists. As commissioned by our Convention, our Foreign Missions program “shall regulate and supervise all mission work under the control of the Convention outside of the continental United States.”

The following is copied from the website of our Foreign Missions program: “The Board of Foreign Missions was created by the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists to aid the churches in fulfilling their responsibility of carrying out the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to take the Gospel to all people (Mark 16:15). The command was given to the Church. The Board of Foreign Missions serves as the channel through which the cooperative efforts of the church are concentrated to fulfill this great task. Through these efforts, work has been established in Bangladesh, Bulgaria, India, Nepal, Liberia, Guinea, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The Reverend Harold Jones is the Director of this program. For more information about FWB Foreign Missions or to invite him to visit your church, you can call Reverend Jones at 1-252-746-4963.

Each March the Board of Foreign Missions conducts a telethon to promote giving for missions. Please go to their website for more information. It can be found using this link:  www.ofwbi.org.
