November 2019 Update

In everything give thanks. Unity Baptist and ABAmedia are thankful for you that prayerfully and faithfully support us.

As Baptist, especially Missionary Baptist, we should understand the meaning and importance of the Great Commission. We are to “go” that we might “teach” or preach to all nations, then “baptizing” believers and then teach them “to observe all things.” What is the best method for fulfilling the Great Commission? There is a tendency on the part of Christians not to understand all components of the Great Commission. It is not to say that every Christian must accomplish this task of the Great Commission in his own personal ministry. However, it is certainly the will of God for each Christian to support, actively and prayerfully, that group of Christians wholly dedicated to this task.

It takes dedication, planning and sacrifice to fulfill this Commission. Thankfully, we don’t have to do it alone. Thanks to our associated work we use literature, mission funds and even technology to to bring this work to the world. While not all can go, we can do our part in teaching the observation of all things. Strong churches make for strong mission work. The ministry of ABAmedia is to support and serve those going, churches sending and supporting missions. It is our belief that with the proper use of media, churches are better able to SEE, HEAR and CONNECT with the world around them. From filming and making available videos for missionaries, churches and ministries we are doing our part to help each church fulfill the Great Commission. We are able to do this thanks to churches and individuals that pray and support this ministry.

In October and November, ABAmedia attended the Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana State meetings. We were able to film short promo videos for many missionaries and ministries. These can be found on our YouTube page. We also did videoed another week of classes for Missionary Training Ministry in Mountain View, AR. We were able to help promote the Thanksgiving Mission Offering by the Secretary Treasure of Missions office. They also are using our deputation tips video series. We also published lessons on Abstinence, Abortion procedures and how a church can help families that are fostering or adopting. Each week, on our Facebook page, we highlight a different seminary in our work and publish articles that we think can help your church.

Thank you for your continued support. We are available to assist your church anyway we can. Merry Christmas and Happy New year from ABAmedia!

Support Needed

Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for your views and comments on our Facebook page. Our Minute Manna and Answering the Storm teaching videos are reaching thousands of people each week.

These videos represent an additional avenue that ABAmedia is using to be a help to you and your church.

Our ministry has grown to the point that we need an extra person to help edit these videos. It takes many hours to produce quality work.

We have people that have agreed to partner with us on the Answering the Storm videos. The cost for each five minute video is $500.00.

Will you please pray about helping us in this as well as all the work ABAmedia does by becoming a monthly supporter or sending a one time offering to help us? You can send your offering to:

Unity Baptist Church
2711 Texas Bvld
Texarkana, TX 75503

or by hitting the donate button on our Facebook page or our website at abamedia.org

This ministry like all others is dependent on God supplying our needs through his people.

On behalf of Unity Baptist Church, Thank you so much for your faithful support and prayers for the ministry of ABAmedia.  Because of your faithfulness, we have been blessed to serve churches and missionaries in media related work for the past 19 years.  Your support and prayers are very much appreciated and needed.

As we begin our 20th year, our prayer is that we can continue to make a difference in the work of the Lord in the area of media, whether it is the video content for teaching or promotion, assistance in recommending the proper equipment and training for your church to live stream your messages, or working with seminaries, associations, camps and other ABA ministries on media related projects; we are here for you!  This is all possible because of our faithful supporters and we are grateful!
