Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas

     Maureen and I visited Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas this morning. It is always a blessing to hear Pastor Bryan Spurgin preach.

     Pastor Spurgin contacted me on Facebook a while back. We have been hosting Bible Baptist Church in McKinney Texas’s website for many years now and Pastor Spurgin wanted to make some updates. Since I had not heard back from him and I know he is a very busy man, I decided it would be a worthwhile trip to drop in and visit this friendly little church.Pastor Bryan Spurgin

     We had a brief visit with Pastor Bryan prior the service, and after a great expository message on Revelation 19, he and I had a brief opportunity to discuss what he wanted to try to accomplish with their website.

     They have two domains and there are a couple of options, one of which is to use the second domain to build the new website and see how he likes it and then combine both of the domains once the work reaches completion (is a website ever really completed?).

     I am also toying with the idea of building the content on my church demo website, but that will require transferring it all back over to the working website when it is all completed. A lot of work and a lot can go wrong….

     Pastor Floyd Brown of First Baptist Church of Flat in Gatesville Texas contacted me. Pastor Brown and I met at a small church several years ago when he and his wife Sara were missionaries.

     I set up a website for them when he became a Pastor at Eureka Baptist Church in Weatherford Texas.

FIrst Baptist Church of Flat     Brother Floyd had become Pastor of First Baptist Church of Flat and wanted to know if I could help him out again.

     They had a domain name that was on their sign, but the person that had registered it and maintained it was no longer reachable. I suggested a domain with a .com instead of the .org domain they had.

     After some attempts to try to contact the person that owned the .org domain brother Floyd told me they wanted to go ahead with the fbcflat.com domain.

     I registered the domain for First Baptist Church of Flat and put up a basic website for the church with contact information, contact form and map with the location of the church.

Baptist Connections

         I have been working with Evangelist Dr. Timothy Holtsclaw to host new church plants for several years. Dr. Holtsclaw is the director of the BATA church planting ministry. Tim had an idea to create a website that would match KJV Churches looking for staff and staff looking for positions in KJV churches.

Baptist Connections

     We talked it over and I decided it would be doable. I did some research and the best platform I could find was actually a dating platform. It took a lot of customizing to change information to match the Baptist Connections data set.

     Dr. Holtsclaw settled on the domain name BaptistConnections.com, which I registered. I created a WordPress website, installed the dating plugin and after much tweaking Baptist Connections came on line last week.

     In order to see the listings, one must register. We are open to suggestions. The website is still in its early stages of development. Lord willing Baptist Connections will help facilitate the matching up of preachers looking for churches and churches looking for staff.

     While maintenance and upkeep will be labor intensive, hopefully this will fill a need in the IFB community!

     I had the pleasure of presenting our ministry work at Lavon Drive Baptist Church (our home church) in Garland Texas this morning.

     The Crusaders class needed a fill in for Sunday School this morning at Lavon Drive Baptist Church, so I agreed to fill in.

Bob Hoffman at Lavon Driive Baptist Church

     As usual, nothing went right. I got there early and worked for 50 minutes trying to get Power Point to start up. After numerous reboots and attempts, I was unable to get it going. Fortunately, I had a hard copy of the outline. I was able to give a decent presentation. Most of the class had not known a lot about our ministry, and it was a blessing to be able to share and answer questions.

     Lavon Drive Baptist Church’s website can be found at lavondrive.org.

     While I was updating the Baptist Ministries Database, (baptist-ministries.org) I found a Bible Tract on a missionary's website called "God's Bridge to Eternal Life."

     The God's Bridge tract was great, and was available in many languages, so I contacted the owners of the tract (Majestic Media) and requested permission to publish the tract on our ministry. I was not sure where to publish the tracts (I have tracts in many different places). I finally decided on a new website. I registered the domain (gods-bridge.com)

     I currently have tracts up in English, Spanish and Chinese and I have been looking for a way to expand to other languages, and this was perfect!

     I installed the God's Bridge tract in English, Spanish and French yesterday. Nancy Shields (of Toolkit Ministries) saw it and asked me to put up the Children's version of the tract (which I did today). I also saw that the website (gods-bridge.com) was taking hits from China already, so I installed the Chinese God's Bridge to Eternal Life tract today.God's Bridge to Eternal Life     I will be adding more languages as I get time. I am excited about this. Please pray that God uses this new website as I continue to publish the Gospel to all nations (Mark 13:10)!
