In its first in-person meeting since February 2020, the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions met today (May 14) and approved a new five-year partnership with Alaska Baptists and approved a new office of church health and its director.
Randy Covington, executive director of the Alaska Baptist Resource Network, and Jae McKee, director of church planting and missions for ABRN, shared with the group via video.
“We are excited about the opportunity and to see what God is going to do,” Covington said. “Thank you so much for praying for Alaska, and we look forward to seeing you in this great state.”
McKee added that the partnership has already been a blessing, especially with Jamie Baldwin, who recently retired from Alabama Baptist work in Sunday School and discipleship, currently onsite assisting with a church relaunch effort in Alaska.
Covington signed the partnership agreement via video, while Rick Lance, Alabama’s State Board of Missions executive director, signed the agreement during the meeting held at First Baptist Church, Prattville. (continued)
