Hunger Offering Advocates
The Texas Baptist Offering for World Hunger (TBOWH) has long needed advocates around the state to tell the stories of lives saved and changed by the ministries supported by the Offering. Happily, this need is being met by a small, but growing group of Baptists who have volunteered their time and energy (1) to help churches raise awareness about hunger and poverty in Texas and around the world, (2) to share the powerful scriptural witness regarding ministry to people in need, and (3) to show how modest, regular giving to the Offering makes an enormous collective impact in the world in the name of the One who came to bring good “news to the poor” (Luke 4:18).
Instrumental in growing this band of advocates is Carolyn Strickland, newly elected First Vice-President of the BGCT and member of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas. Carolyn organized the first TBOWH advocate meeting on October 23 at the Baptist Building which was reported in the November e-newsletter, and she is continuing to pull together subsequent training meetings in San Angelo, Abilene, and other locations around the state. If you would like to serve as a TBOWH advocate, please contact Joyce Gilbreath for more information at 214-828-5172 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
