Pasco Baptist Association's 

Four primary purposes.

 

  • Leadership Development

    • Number one priority is helping churches develop Biblical leaders.  The training program, Certificate of Biblical Leadership, via NOBTS's Level College, provides 24 hours of classroom per class, offering 15 different classes.  With the completion of 8 classes, one receives a certificate of completion from NOBTS and participates in NOBTS graduation.

    • PBA hosts monthly pastor luncheons, one on both sides of the county, for the purpose of building relationships between pastors and churches.  Oftentimes, pastors do not know other pastors, and this provides an avenue for pastors to meet, share and develop within their own peer learning groups.

    • PBA provides a monthly Pastor Roundtable at the office on weeknights to deal with specific current needs or issues facing Pasco churches. 

    • PBA host guest speakers on church issues ranging from legal issues, liability insurance, church security, children's workers' training, when to do a background check, and appropriate church media responses.

 

  • Ministry Development

    • PBA provides support and leadership weekly at the Land O Lakes Detention Center, with Bible study, faith-based, and substance abuse class.

    • PBA's PrayforPasco initiative provides an online prayer catalyst for Pasco County churches. In 2016, the US Census Bureau reported Pasco 85 of 100 of the fastest-growing counties in the country.  Since 2005 the population has doubled, bringing with it new cultures and diversity. If the 51 SB churches in Pasco, of which 34 are members of PBA are to bring the Gospel to this growth they will need to become prayer partners. 

 

  • Community Outreach Development

    • PBA provides an event trailer to our churches for block parties, that includes delivery and assistance in setting up a tent, bouncy house, popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cone machines. It even includes tables and chairs.  The event trailer provides a means for churches to connect with their communities and neighborhoods for evangelism and ministry.

    • PBA host an annual Men's Wild Game Night in March that usually draws in 700 plus men and boys for a time of fellowship, evangelism, and rededication among fathers and sons. 

 

  • Information and Communication Development

    • The Association hosts workshops in social media, website development, and the use of Apps and email-based information networking. 

    • The Association maintains a website that continues to serve as a platform for people new to the area doing internet searches for churches and contact info.  We are now averaging over 300 hits per week by people who find our site and go directly to Church Search, looking for church information.
