God is using the International Ministries of the MBA to impact the 66 language groups in Mobile County in great part because of funds from WFBIM. 

The Walk for Bibles and International Ministries is scheduled for Saturday, October 5 at 8:00 a.m. There are three walk sites:

  • The International Ministries Center  
  • FBC Citronelle
  • Dauphin Island Bapitst Church

    WFBIM has the greatest financial impact on International Ministries of any single event we do.  Be thinking of creative ways to get your congregation, student ministry, Sunday School Class, men’s ministry, RA’s, GA’s, AWANA’s, WMU  and all missions loving people involved.

  2. Please make sure that your church has a Team Captain and that you support his/her efforts to enlist walkers in this “partnership mission action.”
  3. There will be a dinner for Team Captains, Mission Leaders and Pastors Thursday, August 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m. at the MBA office. This will be the only training opportunity. Instructions and promotional materials will be distributed at this meeting.
