KBF Youth Mission Weekend:

Eastern Kentucky

KBF held its second KBF Youth Mission Weekend on March

11-12 in Eastern Kentucky. Eleven churches, with a total of 138
youth and adults, came to FBC Winchester on Friday evening for
fellowship, worship, and fun. On Saturday, the youth gathered at
the Nada Mission where Paula Settle and Josh Speight organized
them into 18 mission project groups. Youth worked in Nada and
Owsley Counties leading projects such as: playing bingo with senior citizens, staining
decks, beautifying the streets of Nada, building porch-railings, cleaning the flower beds
at Owsley County Elementary School, and sorting clothes at Owsley County Outreach

Tampa to host Cooperative Baptist

Fellowship for 20th anniversary
celebration in June

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship will gather to celebrate

its historic 20th anniversary at the 2011 CBF General
Assembly June 22-25 in Tampa, Fla.

April eNews from Kentucky Baptist Fellowship

"This Assembly is special. It is a time to say, with humility

and gratitude, that by God's grace after two decades we are still vibrant and vital to the
Baptist family and the broader Christian community," said CBF executive coordinator
Daniel Vestal.

A remembrance of 20 years of ministry, as well as a look toward the Fellowship's future,

will be the highlight of the "Celebrating the Fellowship" Dinner Party on Wed., June 22
at 6:30 p.m. The celebration will include music by pianist and songwriter Ken Medema
and a reflection by guest speaker Molly T. Marshall, who was among many significant
leaders during the Fellowship's formation in the early 1990s.

"This is a time to say thank you to those who have invested themselves in the
Fellowship's beginning and development," Vestal said. "This also provides an
opportunity for reflection and recommitment to our vision of being Christ's presence in
the world."

The Assembly theme, "God's mission, your passion: Celebrating our 20-year journey
toward faithfulness" (Matthew 25:35-40), will be explored in evening worship services,
including the annual Global Missions commissioning service of new field personnel on
Thurs., June 23, and a Fri., June 24, service featuring guest speaker Kyle Reese,
pastor of Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla.
