DAPHNE, Alabama (TAB) — The second and final day of the Alabama Baptist State Convention  (ABSC) annual meeting heard prayer requests from entity leaders and ministry leaders throughout the state.
Dale Huff, director of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions’ office of LeaderCare & church administration, shared the final theme interpretation, illustrating the “Y” of “PRAY” — “Yoke us together in sacrifice and service.”
He encouraged listeners that “God has a yoke-shaped purpose for your life.”
Buddy Champion, pastor of First Baptist Church, Trussville, shared from Matthew 7:7 during the convention sermon.
“In my struggles I can turn to the Father who wraps his arms around me and tells me he loves me” Champion said. “Ask and you will receive because He is not a Father who gives you stones and snakes but a Father who gives you exactly what you need in your life.”
Officers were re-elected without any discussion — Travis Coleman (ABSC president); John Thweatt (first vice president); and Tim Cox (second vice president).
