connect . . . I anticipate that 2010 will be a great year in the life of Maryland and Delaware Baptists. God continues to bless despite the challenges we are facing as the people of God.

Dr. David H. Lee Executive Director

Our mission is to intentionally assist in the starting and strengthening of congregations so that together we can accomplish the Great Commission. We want to “connect” with you. We want to help.

In this calendar you will find opportunities to connect to tools and resources that will strengthen your personal spiritual journey and assist you in leading your church to accomplish the mission God has given to you.

In addition to the events outlined here, search the roster of missionaries who are available for coaching, consultation, and training. Each would be honored to assist you and your church. Also check the online resources at www.bcmd.org.

As we close a decade, and enter a new one, let us all join together as ministry and missionary partners with a renewed commitment to reach Maryland/Delaware and the world for Jesus Christ. Yours in Him, David H. Lee
