The Hope for the Mountains Crusade returns to Ashe County High School Gym
on Sun., July 17 – Wed., July 20, 2016
West Jefferson, July 17, 2016:  Are you feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, and/or defeated with life’s obstacles? Then you don’t want to miss this year’s Hope for the Mountains Crusade! 
Bringing this year’s Message of Hope is Rev. Neal Hatfield.  He and his wife, Sue, founded and co-direct the operations of Uplands Reach Conference Center in Millers Creek.  Rev. Hatfield is no stranger to the feelings of being overwhelmed, discouraged and defeated; in 1986, when the Lord called on the Hatfield’s to step out by faith and start Uplands Reach, they met many of the same obstacles we all face today.  They had very little money, a small travel trailer for living quarters, and family to help them pay their electric bill.  Neighbors rallied around to provide food and emotional support. But the Hatfield’s stood by their faith and today they continue to see their dreams grow and come to life.  Today, Rev. Hatfield spends a significant amount of time traveling to hold revivals, crusades, and special events. 
We will have local nightly worship brought to us by Calvary Reflections, Faith River, Taylon Hope Miller, Mikayla Shatley, and a Combined Local Drama Team.
Please join us in bringing Hope for the Mountains!  Each night promises to hold a special message and amazing worship!  Doors will open at 6:30 pm with services beginning at 7:00 pm each night.

Counselor Training for Hope for the Mountain will be held after the prayer session on Tuesday, June 28 and that night at 6:30 at Midway Baptist Church Fellowship Hall for those who cannot make the morning meeting. For more info call DOM David or Linda Blackburn at 336-877-7233 or 336-877-7720.

​SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Ashe Baptist Association Office / Ashe Really Cares and Midway Baptist Church have 300 yard signs for the public  to put up  as soon as possible. It is now time to advertise about Hope for the Mountain Crusade. Help us get the word out. Share with your friends about the saving power of Jesus Christ! Come by Monday thru Friday 9-4.

Empowering, Mobilizing, Creating Atmosphere for Churches


                                                          “Family Matters”
How important is family? It is very important! God has allowed me to see my family  become very successful Spiritually and successful as they contribute to the community. I believe that the Bible teaches that when we follow Him, He will bless us and our         family. My Grandparents were Christians. Grandpa Blackburn, Rev. W.W. Blackburn was a Baptist minster. Family Matters! Thus my Dad was a Christian and led me in the way of God. My Mothers Mom and Dad, Etta and John   Goings were Christians thus my Mom led me in the way of God. I had a drug problem when I was growing up. I was drug to Church on Sunday Morning, Sunday night and Wednesday night. It did not hurt me one bit. ( I think it done some good). Because of my family I met my wife of   forty-eight years at church. Her Mom and Dad and her Grandparents were Christians thus she was led the way of God. Family Matters! We have led our two children in the way of God  They have led their 5 children in the way of God. Our daughter is the School Superintendent of Mt. Airy City Schools, our son is a Vice President with        Advance Auto Corporation . My wife has retired from  Co-Operative Extension / 4–H after 20 years. We have grandchildren that play soccer, basketball, football, baseball , tennis and other sports very well. Family Matters! God does bless us if we follow Him and His ways! Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and mother so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” The 5th Commandment is the first commandment that relates to humans.  The first four are vertical and are  toward God but the next six are vertical and directed toward others.  Family is the  foundation of any nation and people and when the institution of the family starts to crumble, so does the foundation of the nation. Joshua 24:15 “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the   Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua made a statement to Israel after Moses was gone.  He also made a statement about his family that for his household they “will serve the LORD.” When a family determines to serve the Lord, the Lord is determined to be a part of that  family. Families are stronger when the Lord is being considered        before making decisions. Families can be one person, two person or more. The New Testament Church is Family. We are all apart of the Family of God. Family Matters! No matter how many are in your family even if you seem to be alone the Church is ready to be your family and ready to help all of us continue in the biblical teachings of the Bible and not the way of the world. A person should live so that everyone knows he is a Christian… and most of all his family ought to know! Family Matters!

                                                       Your Servant , David
