A Greeting from KBC President Charles Frazier

Facebook Twitter Email

On November 14, 2017, I was elected to be President of the Kentucky Baptist Convention. I am honored to be able to serve Kentucky Baptists in this capacity. In the past few months I have been able to meet with numerous pastors from Paducah to Pikeville. It has also been educational for me to attend KBC committee meetings in Louisville.

I am very excited about our upcoming annual meeting in Pikeville on November 13.  On the Sunday night before Convention, we will have an evangelistic crusade called, ‘Hope for the Mountains.’  We will need 200 pastors to be Decision Time counselors for we are asking and expecting the Holy Spirit to move in a mighty way.  We are praying that we will have 3500 in attendance on that Sunday evening.

Our Lord said, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 NJKV). Jesus preached timeless messages and was sympathetic for those whom he met. On multiple occasions, he taught his disciples the important role of servanthood as a leader. We are blessed to have many wonderful servants of Jesus and of his churches as pastors in our state. Following the example of our Savior, I desire to serve those pastors and all Kentucky Baptists during my time as KBC president. God has placed me in this position for such a time as this.

I once heard John Maxwell bring a message at the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in Dallas, Texas. He quoted the adage, “People do not care what you know until they know how much you care.”  Serving as a pastor for over 25 years, God has taught me the truth of those words and the value of caring for those to whom God has called me to minister. I care about the 2,400 churches and 750,000 Kentucky Baptists.

If you have social media, friend me on Facebook so we can connect as fellow Kentucky Baptists.  I can also be found on Twitter at @cookingpastor. Social media is a good tool for pastors to keep up to date and a tool that I have used. Connecting on social media will also provide me the opportunity to pray for you as you labor for the Lord.

I have one prayer request for you. I serve as pastor at Zion’s Cause Baptist Church in Marshall County where the high school shooting occurred on January 23rd.  Please continue to remember our community. Pray that our Kentucky Baptist churches and pastors can continue to minister in this difficult situation. The road to healing will be long and difficult. We trust in the Lord that healing will come.

Blessings,

Charles Frazier, D.Min.
