To the churches of Cannan District Baptist Association,

Grace and peace to you in the name of the One Who is, Who was, and Who is to come, even our Lord Jesus the Christ.  I give God thanks for each of you and your partnership in the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus.  I am humbled and honored to serve as your Moderator, and as we embark on this journey together, I am excited about what God has done, is doing, and the future endeavors he has in store for our association.  

I want to foster fellowship among the Pastor's and churches, where we can build a relationship of trust and unity.  

Our focus for this tenure is Mission (Matthew 28:19-20), Ministry ( Luke 14:21-23), and Message (John 3:16), as we distribute grace, forgiveness, and the love of Jesus into the community and world around us.

I ask that you pray for one another, for prayer engages us for the purpose of lifting Jesus as a collective body to build the kingdom of God, which is the essential element of the Christian faith and a delicate but fundamental task of Christian leaders.  Let us make our service to God, the highest priority and be encouraged to know that serving the Lord will pay off after while. 

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and the Power of His might.  Put on the whole armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  (Ephesians 6:10-12)

In His Service 

Moderator Eddie M Davis, Sr.
