The Moderator’s Message
I thank Our Heavenly Father for the blessed opportunity to have been chosen to serve in this position as the 18th Moderator in 2018 and the Berean Missionary Baptist District Association for having placed their trust in me to lead this body of baptized believers while “Walking And Witnessing In The Spirit Of Love And Unity.” (Ephesians 4:1-3; I John 4:7-8; Acts 1:8) This theme will be emphasized throughout this administration.
It is my goal to carry out the Mission of the Moderator that has been assigned to my hands by the grace and mercy of God. I solicit your prayers and cooperation because this task cannot be accomplished without us walking, witnessing and working together giving all the glory to God our Father. I believe that everyone is unique and important in the sight of God our creator and maker and should be treated accordingly.
Proverbs 29:18a reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The people run wild and are without direction and guidance from God. My vision is to begin to contact pastors of churches and to let them know that they and their congregations, no matter the size, are important and loved by God, the Moderator and this Association. This is the initial step in “Walking And Witnessing In The Spirit Of Love And Unity.”
To God Be The Glory,
Dr. Harold J. Butler
Berean District Moderator
