2017 Evangelism Catalyst CABA Report
Tom Pendergrass
 
It has been a joy to serve again this year in Evangelism, this time as the Evangelism Catalyst for CABA. It has been a year of transition in understanding the new role for each Catalyst and my role in particular. It has been an honor to serve alongside the men who serve as Catalyst Leaders and alongside Mark Snowden. His friendship, encouragement, exhortation, and passion are several reasons why we brought him on board. To hear and see his vision and missional heart has been an inspiration.
 
I have focused the last few months on our Evangelistic Strategy, leading out in County-by-County meetings. We met in eight different counties and were graciously hosted by pastors in CABA who did a remarkable job! We had 26 churches participate. We followed up that training with our Evangelism Roundtable hosted by Clough Pike. We had eleven churches participate in which Jack Helton, Mark, and I led sessions. We also viewed “The Case for Christ” movie excerpts. This evangelistic movie is out for a special showing in theaters on April 7.
 
I wanted to give a special shout out to Jack Helton, our State Evangelism director and to NAMB who provided our Three Circles Evangelism Kits for free. Jack’s leadership and passion for souls is a resource I highly encourage our pastors to use.
 
Disaster Relief has fallen under my umbrella and I so look forward to getting to sit down with all our leaders as we plan toward the future and expand our borders. CABA can take great thanks for the tremendous job out Mud-Out unit does every year, working alongside our NAMB partners. We will announce soon a couple of dates to meet and network together to see Disaster Relief expanded in CABA.
 
The Block Party Ministry is underway! A special thanks to Patti and all the she does to set this up. Registration is now online as the TRESS, the Trailer Reservation System at www.cincinnatibaptist.com. Please remember that this ministry is used virtually non-stop once the weather breaks and the sun begins to shine again in Ohio—160 times in 2016. Make every effort to leave the equipment better than when you receive it. We also stress that you need to be trained before you can use the trailer. These help meet insurance requirements.  Please check the CABA website for the next training you can attend. The team at Lakota Hills do an awesome job of hosting and training our church leaders.
 
One final thought that I would like to leave you with is what I stressed at all our Evangelism Training events, “NEVER DO MINISTRY ALONE!” We exist to make disciples and train up the next generation of CABA and Kingdom leaders.
 
See you at the Evangelism Expo April 29 that we’re hosting at Urbancrest!
