I want to personally invite you to join us at 11:00 AM on Monday May 3 at the DBA training center at 9780 Ferguson Road in Dallas to hear Dr. Bob Dean bring his last message as Executive Director of Dallas Baptist Association.

I could say so much about Bob, but I will simply say this when you are around him, you are in the presence of one of the most outstanding Baptist leaders of our time. He is a man of great spiritual depth and a high level of integrity. I look forward to seeing you on Monday.
In addition to Monday, tomorrow Thursday, April 29, we will be having a come and go reception at our office at 8001 East RL Thornton Freeway in Dallas for Bob and his precious wife Ellen, from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM. I hope you will join us for either or both events as we honor such a great man.

If it seems like you are having trouble communicating with the next generation or with people who have moved to the US recently, maybe you are! Our world has certainly changed a lot in the last fifty years, and while message of God's Good News has not changed, our methods of communication certainly have.

So why not take a couple of hours each Monday in May, and get retooled in effective ways of introducing others to Jesus Christ? The information is in the flyer below. If you have questions, feel free to call or write to Evangelism Consultant Tim Ahlen (cell-214-403-8283; email- [email protected]). The workshops are free, and they are in person or online.

A dream of most Christian parents is that their children and grandchildren will grow up trusting in the Lord and serving Him in a Bible believing church. It is a dream of which our pastors say “Amen.” The future of the church is very much determined by the faithful support of each succeeding generation.
The problem is that when it comes to the twenty-first century, that next generation the church is depending on is fleeing from the it in droves. According to statistics developed by the Pew Research Association, four in ten millennials (those between 23-38 years of age) now say they are religiously unaffiliated. In other words, they are just as likely to say they have no religion as they are to identify as Christian.
There is no single reason why the next generations are rejecting traditional Christianity. For some it is a matter of culture. They might be the children of Christian immigrants or other new Americans who are rejecting the language and customs of their parents’ birth culture and Christian faith is the “baby thrown out with the bath water.” For others, it might be a rejection of the politics that accompanies so much of western evangelicalism. For still others it might be a suspicious rejection of all things institutional. In other words, the reasons are complex and many.
What can be done about it? For Baptist and other evangelicals, there is hope. The hope begins with our faith in an eternal God who will be same for generations to come. He is Sovereign and will not abandon His church. But some of the answer lies in God’s people, the church. And there is a glimmer of hope in some corners of the Christian world, including right here in Dallas.
On Monday, May 3, from 9:00 AM-11:00 AM, The Dallas Baptist Association Evangelism Department will be hosting the first in a series of workshops designed to equip pastors and leaders to reach out to this next generation of Americans. Called “Good News Mondays,” these two hour long workshops will offer practical help and resources for evangelism and discipleship.
The first workshop, titled “Reaching Generation Next,” will provide insight on how to reach the youth and young adults who are fleeing the church. It will be led by Dr. Voltaire Caçal, Dean of International Students at Dallas Theological Seminary and Pastor Nebiye Kelile of Pathway Church.
There is no charge for the workshop, but you need to register so we know you are coming. Here is the registration link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/good-news-monday-tickets-150923414997.

Please find attached the Ramadan SPECIAL EDITION of the Nations of DFW Prayer Guide.

It is simply an introduction and invitation to intercede. And while written for intercessors in the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex, it applies to any place Muslims live. Share a digital or print copy with friends and those in your small group. Call others to pray using the guide. Send links to the Prayercast videos listed in the guide to fellow intercessors during Ramadan.

As always, this is produced to raise the spirit level of the Lord's activity in the Metroplex. It is not focused on any particular organization or ministry group. The primary focus is upon reaching immigrants and ethnic groups without believers in their culture or language group. It is devoted to Church Planting Movements and Disciple-Making Movements geared toward rapid multiplication of groups of unbelievers, pre-Christians, and new Christians who hear the Word and obey into discipleship. To learn more see: https://youtu.be/Ir5z8HDc0Jk and https://youtu.be/pJq1N4PiH28
