  • Fathers are powerful role models for their children

    May 30 2016 by Milton A. Hollifield Jr., BSC executive director-treasurer | with 1 comments

    This Father’s Day presents us with an opportunity to express our gratitude to the fathers and father-figures in our lives. May our Heavenly Father encourage the hearts of fathers everywhere, making them more like Him every day.   The role of a father is crucial all throughout the life of their children beginning when those children are young and impressionable and it continues into adulthood.

  • See God’s loving nature through Mother’s Day Offering

    April 19 2016 by Milton A. Hollfield Jr., BSC executive director-treasurer | with 0 comments

    As we near Mother’s Day, it is only fitting that we spend some time thinking about our mothers. What an important role that mothers have in our lives.   They nurture us as children but do not stop caring for us as adults. I truly believe that mothers are ordained by God to show us a tangible example of His caring nature and lovingkindness toward His children.

    It’s that time of the year again – the Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is nearly two months away. This year, the meeting will take place June 14-15 in St. Louis, Mo. , and I believe that it will once again be a wonderful time of prayer and fellowship as we work to make the name of the Lord Jesus known to the nations.

    As we reflect on Christ’s death, burial and resurrection during this Easter season, I have been thinking about how our relationship with Jesus evolves over the course of our lives. Though God does not change, as humans, we are subject to fickle emotions.

    The year of 2016 holds a special significance in North Carolina Baptist life – it is the 40th year anniversary of N. C. Baptist Men, also known as Baptists on Mission. I reflect on all that Baptists on Mission has accomplished for our Lord Jesus, and I praise His name – what a testimony to the goodness of our God!   Baptists on Mission is an auxiliary of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and is itself composed of 17 different ministries.

  • In all things, a time for prayer

    February 9 2016 by Milton A. Hollifield Jr., BSC executive director-treasurer | with 0 comments

    I firmly believe that the practice of consistent fervent prayer is required if we are to see God move in our state, nation and world.   In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are commanded to pray without ceasing. Have you ever spent time meditating on the meaning of this verse?   Does it mean that we are to spend our every waking moment in prayer and supplication?   Does it mean that we are to live our lives forgoing all other activities to devote ourselves completely to prayer?   2-9-16edt.</p>

    As I have reflected on 2015, I was reminded just how great of a year it was for North Carolina Baptists and the strides we have made in creating a disciple-making culture across our state.   When we first launched the strategy of impacting lostness through disciple-making in January 2014, we knew that we had quite a bit of work ahead of us.

    Every year around this time, Gloria and I spend time reflecting on the Christmas story. We rejoice with the angel who proclaimed the good news, we are in awe of God’s glory as the shepherds were, and we feel grateful like Mary did when she found a place of shelter in the stable.

    As the Christmas season approaches, I have been taking some time to ponder the spirit of giving that surrounds this time of the year. When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, God gave the world the greatest gift it would ever know. Our Heavenly Father gave us a gift to save us from our sins.

  • A time to reflect on Christ’s blessings

    November 17 2015 by Milton A. Hollifield Jr., BSC executive director-treasurer | with 0 comments

    As we make our plans for Thanksgiving this year – whether we are visiting family far away or hosting others in our own homes, we must not forget to spend time reflecting on what the Lord has done for us in the past year. This could be a discipleship moment when you lead the younger family members to think about which blessings from God are most important to us.
