Four CABA pastors and three Youth Ministers have begun working on a report for the association. It is due at the Annual Meeting, October 4, 2021.
They are looking at one of the five SBC Vision 2025 goals (sbcvision2025.com) addressing a 38% decrease in baptisms among 12 to 17 year olds since 2000. Strategic Action #4 states: “Turn around our ongoing decline in reaching, baptizing, and discipling 12-to 17-year olds in the prime of their teenage years.”
Each of the members are from CABA's seven geographical regions.
Region 1: Tyler Freeman, Sonrise
Region 2: Ken Dillard, Mt. Healthy FBC
Region 3: Tyler Freeman, Urbancrest
Region 4: Jason Buss, FBC So. Lebanon, Chairperson
Region 5: Tom Leach, Faith, Blanchester
Region 6: Danny Calves, Clough Pike
Region 7: Bink Garbutt, Georgetown
Mark Snowden, CABA director, said, “Pray for this team to hear clearly from the Lord and help our association's churches see and address lostness among teens.”
Ronnie Floyd, SBC CEO, said in Baptist Press, “We cannot accept this dismal reality and ignore this great need.”
