together for the kingdom

Del Rio-Uvalde Baptist Association Strategy Initiative

In the Annual Meeting the Association approved a three-year strategy initiative, “Together for the Kingdom”. “Together for the Kingdom” flows forth out of the Vision statement adopted by DRUBA: “Working Together for the Kingdom of God.”

“Together for the Kingdom” is based on five Associational priorities: (1) Prayer, (2) Fellowship, (3) Evangelism/Missions, (4) Church Health, and (5) Leadership Development.

I.  Prayer

Goal: To develop a stronger prayer life within the churches.

Coordinator – Tony Gruben

II.  Fellowship

Goal: To develop a network and structure to embrace the interdependence of the churches within the Association.

Coordinator – Greg Knapp

III.  Evangelism/Missions

Goal: To encourage through information and direction to our churches to reach lostness by being an Acts 1:8 church.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Coordinator – Jeff Jackson

IV.  Church Health

Goal: To help the churches develop and maintain a strategy and structure to support the five New Testament functions of the church.






Coordinator – Jeremy McCarty

V.  Leadership Development

Goal: To develop a culture of leadership development.

Definition-A process where leaders are trained through an apprenticeship mentoring system that has an end in mind which is to be a more effective leader. 

Coordinator -Scott Pomeroy

Pray diligently for God’s direction and enablement as we begin to implement the strategy. May the Lord work in us and through us in such a way that we will truly be an Association that works together for the growth of the Kingdom of God.
