2017 CABA Missions Report for Book of Reports
 
Fran Trascritti served six months as Missions Catalyst for CABA. He has resigned to take a position with LifeWay Resources and will be missed. In the six months that Dr. Trascritti served CABA, he worked with the CABA director to develop an association-wide Acts 1:8 missions strategy.
 
JERUSALEM:
a.     Hunger Funds: CABA changed its reporting forms in the first quarter 2017 to track God’s activity. Praise God for the 20 evangelistic encounters, six professions of faith and two baptisms. Two churches had 14 volunteers who served 424 hot meals just in the first quarter 2017. Let the CABA office know if your church has an evangelistic feeding opportunity. This project allows CABA to reimburse expenses through giving to the State Convention of Baptists in Ohio and the North American Mission Board to the glory of God! 100% of giving to Hunger goes to meals. SBC Hunger Funds go to provide hot meals.
b.     Global Impact Conference: CABA joined in with Urbancrest to help support their GIC with more than 800 attending from five CABA churches. Mission education came in the form of booths, displays, testimonies, and a “Taste and See” night with foods from around the world.
c.     Plans are underway to begin Unfunded Church Planting. Travis Smalley, Oliver Hawkins, Fran Trascritti, and Mark Snowden met to begin planning for (unfunded) church planting by lay and bi-vocational approaches.
 
JUDEA:
a.     Mission Trips to Cincinnati are encouraged by every church. God has placed us in nine counties. A Mapping Project is planned to identify peoples in our communities, focus prayer, and then connect with them here, there, and everywhere.
b.     The Cincinnati Area has agreed to a partnership with the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board through 2019. Whenever a church visits Cincinnati, then we should respond with missions back in their community.
c.     P2 Missions and World Changers are planned this July. Volunteer to help with meals and prayer.
 
SAMARIA:
NEW! Boston: CABA has been approved to join in with other Ohio Baptists who have ongoing partnerships with New England. Mark Jones, SCBO partnership coordinator has requested CABA work in Boston. How you doin’?
 
ENDS OF THE EARTH:
NEW! Refugees of Southern Italy: CABA’s leaders have accepted the strategic opportunity to join in with other Ohio Baptists who have an ongoing partnership with southern Italy – from Naples to the refugees of Italy’s “heel.” Steve Long, SCBO partnership coordinator, requested that we coordinate work with Steve Brown, IMB missionary serving in Naples, Italy. Ciao!
