Reach­ing Out with the Acts 1:8 Strat­e­gy

The Daniell Bap­tist Asso­ci­a­tion exists to help our church­es reach com­mu­ni­ties for Christ. We do this in many ways and the strat­e­gy we use is found in Acts 1:8: But you will receive pow­er when the Holy Spir­it comes on you; and you will be my wit­ness­es in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

The DBA strives to achieve the Acts 1:8 Strat­e­gy through finan­cial sup­port, events, train­ing, and resources.


Adopt­ed Jan­u­ary 23, 2018 by Daniell Bap­tist Asso­ci­a­tion Admin­is­tra­tive Team

The Daniell Bap­tist Asso­ci­a­tion, has in the past, took up the Acts 1:8/Calvin Dur­rence Offer­ing on the third Sun­day of May. It has come to our atten­tion that many church­es have Grad­u­a­tion Sun­day on this Sun­day as well, and oth­er church­es have Grad­u­a­tion Sun­day on oth­er Sun­days. In an effort to avoid over­lap and con­fu­sion, the DBA is mak­ing the whole month of May an Acts 1:8/Calvin Dur­rence month. Church­es are invit­ed to choose which Sun­day works best for them to take up the offer­ing. The DBA will glad­ly pro­vide a bul­letin to print out and offer­ing envelopes for the occa­sion. Addi­tion­al­ly, we would be delight­ed to set up a local recip­i­ent of the Acts 1:8 to come speak on the Sun­day you choose (avail­able on a first come basis). This year the church­es of the Daniell Bap­tist Asso­ci­a­tion are sup­port­ing:

Cedar Cross­ing His­pan­ic Mis­sion

Igle­sia Bautista Vida Nue­va (Church in Kan­tu­nilkin, Mex­i­co)

Kei­th Horne, Mis­sion­ary Ser­vice Corp.

Mer­cy Med­ical Clin­ic

Mis­sion­ary: Nathan Ammons

Sweet Onion Chris­t­ian Learn­ing Cen­ter

Rachel’s House

The Dream Cen­ter

The cost of total month­ly sup­port for these min­istries is $1,025 and we hope to con­tin­ue to sup­port these min­istries through­out the year, pos­si­bly adding a new min­istry in 2019, to aid in fur­ther­ing the King­dom of our Lord and Savior.
