April 2022 News from SWBA
 Three Churches will be presented for Affiliation at May 5th Meeting

On Thursday, May 5, we will have our next Executive Team meeting for the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association. We are inviting all of our pastors and their leaders to participate, as you are part of the Executive Team. This meeting will be historical as we have three churches making presentations to come into the SWBA.

The three churches who have already completed their application and been interviewed are the following:

            1.   Bethel Baptist Church of Janesville with Pastor Drew Super

            2.  Amistad Cristiana of Kenosha with Pastor Rafael Escobedo

            3.  Memorial Baptist Church of Verona with Pastor Jeremy Scott

Each of these pastors will be sharing their testimony on their desire to come into the SBC and the SWBA. Then you will have time for question and answer with each pastor. The meeting will take place at Transformation Church located at 2340 Manley Drive in Sun Prairie, WI.

 Vision Tour with
Thousand Hills Baptist Association

On April 6, a team of three leaders came from the Kirksville, Missouri area to tour mission opportunities in Milwaukee. This team will be partnering this summer with Walter Gutierrez of Nueve Vida en Cristo and Issa Safadi of Arabic Church of Milwaukee.   

The Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association has a partnership with the Thousand Hills Baptist Association, who will be bringing the team. They will be doing both construction projects and ministry projects when they come for a week this July. We look forward to seeing how God is going to use this partnership.

 Cross Cultural Church Planting Course with Howard Payne Univ
As we develop our partnership with the Heart of Texas Baptist Network in Brownwood, Texas, we are blessed to also start a partnership with Howard Payne University.  Professor Rusty Wheelington (on left in photo with group from Brownwood, Texas) brought seven students to meet four different church planters who are planting in Wisconsin. They visited churches in Madison and Milwaukee to see how God is at work and learn from what they are doing.
