    Do any of you know of SBC missions going on to the oil workers in ND?

    Thanks for any help!

    1. Stay as far away from JD Hall as possible.

    2. The NAMB has some good things going on in collaboration with the state convention. I'd double the encouragement to check in with them.

    I'm glad you've posted this.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I've tried contacting the Association but get no reply. Super busy up there I suppose.

    And yeah, I don't want to support anything remotely connected with J.D. Hall.

    Looks like Cornerstone in Williston has an outreach to Alexander, just where we were hoping to help.

    Thanks!

    Did you send an email or do phone call?
    was it the State Convention or local association.
    If all else fails , call one of the SBC local churches.

    E mail. No problem not hearing back yet, though. We were able to navigate the state association website and find listings of churches in the target area we want to help reach.

    From that we went to the various churches' websites and/or associational news archives. Found what we wanted. We wanted to help either in the Belfield, Dunn County, or Watford City/Alexander areas.

    Cornerstone FBC Williston lists outreach or satellite church in Alexander, so we chose them.

    For anyone interested in a little extra outreach, the Oilfield Christian Fellowship material is pretty Baptistic. Love their give away Bible. They have a Watford City chapter and give out lots of those Bibles, and hold some tailgate church, etc.

    This is quite a mission field. Lots of unsaved people working hundreds of miles from home in adverse conditions. Many are quite ready for the Savior.

    At least pray!
