Later this year, Baptist Progress, will celebrate 108 years of ministry. During the month of June, we are asking churches, individuals, classes and groups to send $108 for 108 years of ministry to Baptist Progress. The goal of our anniversary offering is to raise $10,000 to meet our budget for the year.
We realize with the COVID-19 Pandemic, things are different this year. If your church cannot give this year, we certainly understand and thank you for your support in the past. However, if you can give, we would be most appreciative of your offering.
Please send your offering to:
P.O. Box 2085
Waxahachie, Texas 75168
(Mark your check “Anniversary Offering”)
Thank you for your contribution to our ministry needs.
To the churches of the BMA:
We don’t need to tell you of all the effects Covid-19 has had on our communities, country, and world. However, it seems fair and forthright to write briefly on the current plans for SOAR 2020.
First, SOAR 2020 will NOT be cancelled. Second, for the first time in over 30 years, SOAR Student Conference will be completely ONLINE and will be totally FREE.
SOAR Student Conference has always been for the churches of the BMA and during a time such as this, SOAR is committed to serving our local churches. July 2020 is still a few months away, and though some health officials anticipate this pandemic to be controlled by then, the reality is, the economy will not have recovered. As a result, it is possible that many of our
churches could be financially unable to even consider attending SOAR 2020 in Dallas.
Therefore, remaining consistent with our vision to be a blessing to our churches, we want SOAR 2020 to be an event ALL of our churches can easily attend. Moving SOAR 2020 completely online has not been an easy decision, but it is an opportunity for which we are
incredibly excited. We have been looking forward all year to our theme of “Multiply” and we hope God’s glory and his followers will be multiplied more than we ever imagined.
There will be more details to come, so visit gosoar.com or Soar Conference on Facebook,
Twitter and Instagram.
From the SOAR team, we love you, and can’t wait for SOAR 2020 ONLINE!

In order not to conflict with Election Day, the BMA Senior Adult Conference and the Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptists of Texas, which two of our department directors are required to attend, the BMA of Texas Administrative Committee has voted to change the dates of the Annual BMA of Texas Meeting to Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5-6, 2020. The meeting will be held at Farley Street, Waxahachie.
