In our relationships with SBC and State Convention entities, Associational Leaders hear a lot about partnerships – how associations are partners in ministry with them. We are partners, and we want to be good partners, but sometimes it seems like a one-way street.
I’m Ray Gentry, the husband of Debra & father of April & Allison. I serve over 80 congregations on the southside of Atlanta as Associational Mission Strategist of the Southside Baptist Network. I am also the President/CEO of the Southern Baptist Conference of Associational Leaders (SBCAL). I’ve served Southern Baptist churches & associations in various roles for over 35 years.
