Dear Lexington Avenue Baptist Church:
In April 2008, I wrote a letter to supporters who had contributed to BSK that month. Let me quote from that letter:
“Thank you for your gift that makes possible the ministerial training for Katie from New Castle, Aaron from Richmond, Don from Berea, Rebecca from Hodgenville, Derek from Somerset, Emilee from Louisville.”
Let me provide updates on the six persons named above. The first four are BSK grads. Katie (Class of 2010) is the Director of Spiritual life at Cedar Lake Lodge, La Grange, KY. Aaron (2008) is a contemporary Christian Musician and also a Worship minister at Central Baptist Church, Lexington, KY. Don (2009) is Associate Minister of Youth, Berea (KY) Baptist Church. Rebecca (2013) is an on-call chaplain at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, KY.
Derek, pastor of Salem Baptist Church in Morgantown, KY, has been taking classes as he is able and should graduate next year. Even though Emilee left seminary for family life, we do not consider her time at BSK wasted. She agreed that she is better prepared for life and ministry.
Whether you have been supporting BSK since 2008 (or earlier) or more recently, I want you to see how investing in BSK pays dividends with ministers who have been prepared or are being prepared to serve Christ. All of our students have life-changing spiritual experiences.
Thank you for your gift. As you have read, giving to BSK makes a huge difference in the work of God. Who knows where our current students will go and what they will do as ministers of the Gospel when they graduate. We do know God will be with them an you will have had a part in their preparation. Thanks be to God and to you!
