As a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship church, we celebrate the excellent work around the globe in renewing God’s world. From field personnel building sustainable agriculture in impoverished nations to church starters beginning new faith communities throughout the United States, from chaplains and pastoral care providers being the presence of Christ in diverse settings to the equipping of congregations for innovation in an ever-changing world, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is comprised of individuals and churches working to spread the hope of Christ.
On Sunday, September 19th, University Baptist Church will host CBF’s Executive Coordinator, Rev. Dr. Paul Baxley.
Paul comes to CBF after serving First Baptist Church of Athens, Georgia. He is a graduate of Wake Forest University (Bachelor of Arts – Religion, 1991), Duke Divinity School (Master of Theological Studies, 1996), and Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (Doctor of Ministry, 2003).
In addition to leading Cooperative Baptists through a Global Pandemic, Baxley works alongside dozens of leaders from across the Fellowship in CBF’s Towards Bold Faithfulness initiative. This initiative is designed to enter this season of prayerful discovery and faithful response in the confidence that the Holy Spirit would guide us to bolder faithfulness for the sake of Christ’s mission.
In addition to preaching in the worship hour on September 19th, Paul will lead a special Spiritual Formation hour session in the Fellowship Hall for all classes.
So please make plans to join us in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00 am for a time of coffee, donuts, and discovery.
