The Daniell Baptist Association exists to bring glory to God
through facilitating partnerships between churches to accomplish the Great Commission.
How to Participate
Churches who wish to pray for every home and provide a Bible for every home in your county should have their pastor contact the DBA Office at (912) 583‑2713 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have signed up to participate, you will receive a text when a person requests a Bible or prayer, so please make sure we have your correct cell phone number.
Be sure to look for emails and texts regarding updates and requests for Bibles and prayer.
A Prayer for Every Home A Bible in Every Home is your DBA initiative to partner churches together to pursue the salvation of every person in Treutlen, Wheeler, Montgomery and Toombs counties.
The goal of the strategy is for each church to pray for every household in their respective county and then together we offer every home an opportunity to hear the gospel and have a copy of the Word of God.
Your DBA staff is providing the leadership of our member churches an updated contact list of households in their county. We encourage each church to develop their plan to pray for every household in their county.
In order for this spiritual endeavor to be accomplished we need all our churches to participate. Each congregation needs a vision, a decision and a plan. Each church must develop a vision to pray for every home, make a decision to go after that vision and put a plan in place that gets you to that vision.
If we can increase the prayer life of our congregations for the spiritual salvation of our community, then we have taken the first vital steps toward spiritual renewal in our churches and in our community.
We also invite the believers in our churches to join together in corporate fasting every Sunday morning as we seek, ask and knock for the door of spiritual revival to be opened in our area. We encourage each of our churches to make every Sunday morning a morning of prayer and fasting. When physical hunger pulls at us on Sunday morning, we can direct that into spiritual hunger and prayer. May God see that we hunger for his strong arm of salvation.
The Bible tells us that the eyes of our Lord roam to and fro, throughout the earth, so that he may show himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is fully devoted to him (2 Chronicles 16:9). Our prayer for every home, our fasting and our perseverance in prayer will show God that our hearts are devoted to him and his agenda and that our hope is in his mighty arm of salvation.
The effort to pray for every home in Wheeler, Treutlen, Toombs and Montgomery counties is ongoing and we are finding a great deal of success. We began the campaign to get a Bible in every home in mid-March. Since we started we have received around 30 requests for prayer and/or Bibles.
In light of the current situation with Covid19
your DBA staff have been mailing Bibles to those who have requested one. We need our pastors and evangelists, to have the contact information and to respond to these requests via phone and letter and to share the gospel with the goal of making a disciple.
How are we organizing the work?
We are organizing the work using a project management program named ClickUp.
As we in the office receive requests for prayer and for Bibles, we take that data and enter it into ClickUp. Within ClickUp the data is organized into our four counties. All of the pastors (and lay-evangelists) in each county will receive a notification about every request that is received from within their respective county. At that point we all need to be eager to reach out and have a conversation. Multiple conversations would be better than only one.
Each minister/evangelist that makes contact should update our progress in the work management program in ClickUp. Is the person born again? Did they pray to receive Christ? Do they have a church home? Are they looking? You can update the status of each prospective person in ClickUp.
We have emailed every pastor an invitation to join the ClickUp program. You need to sign in to see your opportunities. You can also download the ClickUp app on your phone and keep up with ministry opportunities and updates through the phone app.
We will also begin to text the contact information for each request through our Remind texting program, and at the beginning of each month, look for an email with an updated excel spreadsheet with the complete list of requests for all counties. We will send this list to every pastor and evangelist.
Also, please give your DBA staff the names and email contact of the evangelists in your congregation that you would want to participate in the evangelism campaign. We are eager to give our gifted evangelists a platform to exercise their gift.
Regarding the marketing piece, we have billboards and other signs out in the community and we are circulating some promotional pieces and videos on social media. We are making every effort to get this opportunity in front of the unbelievers in our community. Please share these promos and videos with your social network online.
We also have cards that we can distribute as well as yard signs that we want to put up at strategic locations throughout our 4 counties. Please help us spread the Word.
This evangelism strategy has a financial cost as well. We need all of the member churches of the DBA to partner together to fund this local mission and evangelism effort. Every aspect of this effort has a price tag. The lists that our churches are using to organize and direct their prayer strategy, the work management and texting programs, the cards and signs that we have created and the 200 Bibles we have purchased and are sending out, all cost money. Please lead your church to partner financially with the other churches in the association to accomplish this great challenge of praying for every home and getting the Word of God in every home.
Please continue to pray for every home. We led with prayer and the success of this effort depends on our persistence in prayer because the success of this effort will come from the mighty hand of God. We are counting on God. We are asking and seeking and knocking. Some are fasting. We need persistence. We need to wear Him out with our constant prayers for the salvation of our neighbors. His eyes are looking for those whose heart is committed so that He can show Himself strong among them. A Prayer For Every Home A Bible In Every Home. Together, by His power and for His Kingdom, we can accomplish this great and God honoring task.
A Prayer for Every Home A Bible in Every Home is your Association evangelistic campaign for 2020. The DBA is comprised of 50 churches across Montgomery, Toombs, Treutlen, & Wheeler Counties.
There are approximately:
2408 households in Montgomery County
7828 households in Toombs County
1810 households in Treutlen County
1356 households in Wheeler County
A Prayer for Every Home
Together we are going to pray for every home in our four counties. Each participating church will have a list of households from within their county and will commit to pray, by name, for the spiritual salvation of each
A Bible in Every Home
Beginning in January of 2020 our DBA will engage in media and marketing campaign that will reach our four
counties with the opportunity for each home to receive the Word of God. Your DBA will use every media and
marketing strategy we can think of and can afford; including commercials, billboards, social media, text
messaging, yard signs (and carrier pigeons if we need to); in order to connect with every household that would like
to receive a free copy of the Word of God.
Then, for each of our neighbors that request prayer or a Bible, your DBA servants will forward that request to
DBA churches so that the church can pray and deliver a Bible, as well as deliver the message of the gospel.
Our immediate priority is to begin praying for every home. Many of your DBA churches picked up their A
Prayer for Every Home A Bible in Every Home pack at this year’s Annual Celebration and many churches have
already given a verbal commitment to pray. If you want to get started praying for your neighbors by name but do not
have your pack yet, please contact your DBA office.
The immediate need is for saints in every church in the DBA to call out to our Lord in prayer on behalf of our
neighbors. We are also calling all those who are willing and able to join in corporate fasting every Sunday morning. We will come to worship hungry for God and we will repurpose our physical hunger on Sunday mornings so that those cravings will drive us toward God instead of distracting us and driving us away from His presence. All who would like to be part of corporate fasting next year can receive and encouraging text on Saturday evening by emailing their name, address, and cell phone number to email@example.com or texting the same to Billy at 912–347-0053.
Prayer is thing if we want to draw the attention of our King. A principle we learn in 2 Chronicles 16:9 is that, “the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” As we offer a prayer for every home, may our God look upon the earth and see that our hearts are committed to Him and may He show Himself mighty to save.
