God at work in local churches
    November 3 2011 by Ed Yount, BSC President

    For the past two years it has been a joy to serve as your convention president. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of seeing Christ on display in your hearts and your lives.
     
    Prior to this experience, I did not realize the extent to which God is working in such unique and extraordinary ways across our state. One of the things that really captured my attention has been the many ways God is at work through the local churches of our state convention.
     
    During my tenure as your president I have encountered some of the most passionate people I have ever known; people who truly care about God’s Kingdom and about serving others above self. It has been inspiring to discover many North Carolina Baptists who are genuinely burdened for the lost, and are sincerely committed to sharing the gospel that they may know Christ.
     
    I cannot begin to tell you all the North Carolina Baptists I met during these two years and all the churches and associations I have been fortunate enough to visit. Every person and every place had a story to tell.
    It was a pleasure to listen, to learn, and to make so many wonderful new friends throughout the state.
     
    Our God is a powerful God who works in such tremendous ways when His people are willing to be obedient and faithful to Him. God has encouraged my heart and strengthened my faith by allowing me to see how He is at work among North Carolina Baptists.
     
    I have been reminded that we can do nothing on our own – it is only by God’s grace that we are able to serve Him and live as He desires.
     
    I pray our hearts are open during this time together in Greensboro. Join me in praying that God will show us what being “All In” means in our lives. May we never be content with where we are in our walk and service to the Lord, always asking Him to use us even more to magnify the precious name of our Lord Jesus.
     
    Let us continue forward, ever giving our best for His glory. Welcome to the 181st annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. I look forward to meeting you!
