PASTOR’S VISION STATEMENT

MEMORANDUM TO:     The Membership of the Second Missionary Baptist Church, 522 Old Wilmington Rd. Fayetteville, NC, 28301

 FROM:     Reverend Gregory L. Davis,  Pastor

  SUBJECT:      Pastor’s Vision Statement for 2022 

Brothers and Sisters, it is again, an honor to serve this beautiful body of believers that is the Second Missionary Baptist Church of Fayetteville, NC.  Throughout my one year tenure serving this congregation, I have been intensely watching and praying and seeking God’s guidance on where He wants me to lead this congregation going into our second year together.  I therefore submit the following Vision Statement, which includes priorities, as we move the church Forward Together in 2022:

  1. To educate the church on spiritual matters through interactive teaching, study, discussion, training and sermonic enlightenment, with the intention of growing a body of believers who emphasize spiritual matters over business or worldly matters.
  2. To encourage all church leaders, prospective or otherwise, to attend spiritual training and study outside of Sunday 11am service, thereby not just being hearers of the Word, but doers of the Word also (see 2 Tim 2:15).
  3. To identify, train, educate and prepare 3-5 deacons for service to SMBC and ultimately ordination through internal processes and the UMBA deacons training curriculum. The process of deacons’ selection will also provide useful help to the deaconess ministry by virtue of the spousal support provided to the prospective deacons.
  4. To live out the Malachi 3:10 Covenant by requiring all the church and ministry leaders to be accountable to The Lord and their church by giving their tithe, time, and talents to the church, completing their duties, whether assigned or voluntarily.
  5. To refrain from paying dues and assessments to fund programs that were biblically designed to be funded out of the general church fund or treasury.

We as a church body have spoken loud and clear; we want a traditional church budget funded by the paying of tithes and giving of free will offerings!

  1. To grow the SMBC young adult population (18-40) to a state of vibrancy in the church; supporting and understanding their uniqueness and generational differences. As a body, we seek to help the young adults bridge the gap between the world they live in and the ‘calling out’ of the world the Gospel demands.
  2. To continuously welcome and embrace new members; helping them to work out their soul salvation and get acclimated to their new church family; developing into a church body known to love God, and love people, members and visitors alike.
  3. To be intentional regarding the responsibility of the church to reach beyond the four walls of our worship edifice, always looking for ways to engage the community more effectively; starting with evangelizing the Wilmington Road area first, then reaching deeper and farther into the Fayetteville area and the surrounding cities.
  4. To identify the proper application and roles of the ministries, boards, and auxiliaries of SMBC. We will not have ‘placeholder’ or name-only ministries in the Lord’s church.  Each ministry must be active, supported and funded or deactivated until such a time as it can effectively carry out The Lord’s mission.
  5. To revamp our internal care program to accommodate our widows, homebound and/or hospitalized members; reassign our special populations within our deacon’s ministry in order to provide exceptional care and response to the needs of our elderly and sickly; honoring the years of dedication and sacrifice of our more senior church officers by recognizing them through “Emeritus” status. This allows for their wisdom and understanding to be leveraged without taxing them physically and psychologically.

Respectfully Submitted,

 

Reverend Gregory L. Davis, Pastor

Second Missionary Baptist Church
