Message from the Executive Secretary-Treasurer
Dependence on God
Rev. Dr. Tony W. Barr, Sr.
Tuesday, August 4, a tornado spawned by Tropical Storm Isaias ravaged several neighborhoods in Windsor NC, which is located in Bertie County. Some people woke up to the reality of bereavement, while others are facing the full loss of all earthly positions and homelessness. But the General Baptist State Convention Family is already at work serving as a beacon of hope to the community.
Moderator Roosevelt Whitehead and Vice Moderator David Moore of the West Roanoke Association immediately began coordinating with local clergy to gather people and resources. Cedar Landing Missionary Baptist Church was identified as the Emergency Community Resource Center. Within 24 hours, leaders from across the state and associations delivered pallets of water & monetary donations.
