The days before us are
a great opportunity for
us to continue to work
together as the body of
Christ for the expansion
of His Kingdom and the
glory of His Name.

Thank you for the privilege of serving our Lord alongside the
churches of Heart of Kansas Southern Baptist Association.
This association of churches is a reflection of the New
Testament model of gospel partnerships.
What is Our Vision?
A few years ago, we envisioned the creation of a
culture of trust and cooperation among churches of
HOKSBA as they worked together to fulfill the Great
Commission. That trust and cooperation has grown
and there has been an increasing alignment of vision
and values.
What is Happening Now?
In this last year we have seen health and growth in existing churches resulting in people who are
far from God coming to know Christ and grow in their faith. We have seen existing churches making very significant gifts of finances and of property to see the establishment of new churches. There are churches who have reached a place of plateaued growth doing the hard work of redreaming and re-tooling in obedience to the Great Commission of our Lord.
I am excited about where we are as an association of churches. This does not mean that the way
forward looks easy. I am excited because the things that we are doing together are a reflection of
what the churches of the New Testament did together.
What does the New Testament Teach us about Association?
New Testament churches partnered by intentionally giving money and people for the expansion of
the Kingdom. The church at Jerusalem was not threatened by the establishment of the church at
Antioch, but rather sent Barnabas to make sure the church was established well and was
doctrinally sound. The church at Antioch sent Paul and Barnabas to plant new churches, and then
sent Paul and Silas back to those churches to make sure the churches were healthy.
Looking at the Past and the Future.
In 1952 this association of churches was established by 13 churches. By 1960 there were 35
churches. As with the churches of the NT, there have been times of peace and growth, and there
have been difficult times. But God has used this association of churches to work together to expand His kingdom.
The days before us are a great opportunity for us to continue to work together as the body of Christ
for the expansion of His Kingdom and the glory of His Name.
In this coming year I expect to see us continue to grow in creating a culture of trust and cooperation. I anticipate us gaining greater strategic clarity as we consider how we can recruit, assess,
equip and invest in church planting and in church health. And I anticipate the addition of other
churches to our association who share our doctrine, our vision, and our values.
Thank you for Partnering to Reach our Region.
Thank you again for the privilege of serving as your Director of Missions and for the significant
investment the churches of Heart of Kansas consistently make in the health and growth of the
Kingdom of our Lord in this region. Our focus on this geographic field is one of the things that local
associations of churches do best.
His Blessings, years we envisioned the creation of a culture of trust and cooperation among churches of

Heart of Kansas Southern Baptist Association
63rd Annual Meeting
River Community Church
October 6, 2014
Terry Williams, pastor of River Community Church, welcomed attendees and opened with prayer.
Moderator Dennis Burns called the meeting to order.
Seating of Messengers … Motion by Dennis Burns that the 121 messengers in the sanctuary, and those arriving after the beginning of the Meeting, constitute the body of the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Heart of Kansas Southern Baptist Association. Motion
carried.
DOM Report … Glenn Davis. As of October 1, Abraham Arevalo and Brad Simmons are no longer employed by HOKSBA; they
are now fully employed by NAMB, and will work for HOKSBA on part-time basis. Glenn’s report is recorded in the Annual Book of
Reports. The report emphasized that change is coming to our Association and in our community/world (Luke 5:37-38). The Way
Forward is seeing that Kingdom Work is much larger than HOKSBA or any affiliated church. We need to return to the Great Commission, to the Call God has placed in our lives. We can give (ex: World Hunger Day) and we can pray. God calls us to continue
learning [“Study to show yourself approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” (2 Tim.
2:15)]. We all need to be passionate about doing this if we are going to reach the world with the gospel, to do what Jesus has called
us to do: love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself. Pray that God will continue His work in this area; that
new churches will be planted; and that existing churches will be strengthened.
Appointing Acting Parliamentarian … Dennis Burns. Jerry Smith was not able to join us for the Annual Meeting. The Moderator
nominated Ron Pracht (Olivet) to position of Acting Parliamentarian. Approved. AMDC/Danny Dirks Report … Cody Busby. See page 32. In addition to Report, AMDC proposed spending $42,000 from the
Danny Dirks Fund to support four church plants in 2015: Three Wooden Crosses Cowboy Church (3WC - $12,000); CenterPoint
Church ($12,000); Logos ($6,000); and Sojourn ($12,000). Approved.
Financial Report … Darrell Duncan. See insert. As of the end of September, we are $3,242.61 under our budgeted church income
amount. This amount has been countered by controlled misc. expense and interest income. We started 2014 with a balance of
$92,912.77; our new balance is $128,773.89. We do have some line-items that are “over”, specifically the cost of insurance increased significantly in 2014 vs. 2013 (new insurance provider has been procured to decrease this overage). Approved.
Shiloh Funds Recommendation … Darrell Duncan. See page 40 of the Annual Book of Reports. Approved.
2015 Budget … Darrell Duncan. See page 39 of the Annual Book of Reports. Approved.
Constitution changes … Kelly Randolph. See insert. The 2013 Annual Meeting Messengers appointed a Constitution Committee
with evaluating the current HOKSBA Constitution and bringing any recommended changes to this year’s Meeting. Drafts were
presented at the April and July Executive Board Meetings, and changes were made based on Executive Board Member feedback. Discussion regarding Proposed Changes will take place after Break.
Two specific issues have been addressed in the Final Draft:
1. Baptist Faith and Message. Article III, Section 1: Changed to “This association shall consist of cooperating Southern Baptist
churches whose faith and practice is in accordance with the doctrine expressed in The 2000 Baptist Faith and Message…” in
order to preserve doctrinal integrity. Committee asks all established churches and plants to agree to this language, while
acknowledging local church autonomy (see Section 3).
2. Messenger Allowance. Article V, Section 1(c): Changed to “Each church shall be represented by church appointed messengers to the Annual Meeting. Each church shall be entitled to four (4) messengers from a weekly worship attendance of up to one
hundred (100), and one (1) messenger for each additional one hundred (100) or fraction thereof in weekly worship attendance. No
church shall have more than nine (9) messengers. All messengers must be members of the church they represent” in order to bring
more equality between smaller and larger churches at Annual Meeting.

Recognition of New Staff … Brad Simmons. Mark Penick, Metro East; Matthew Nix, Metropolitan; Philip Lawrence, Indian Southern; Kevin Ferstl, Cedar Pointe; and Steve Hazell, Country Acres Baptist Church.
Baptism Awards … Brad Simmons. God works through His churches. The following churches recorded more baptisms in this
year’s ACP reports than last year: Aviator Derby; Cedar Pointe; Centerpoint Church; Country Acres; FBC Haysville; IB Getsemani;
Indian Southern; Journey the Way; Olivet Baptist; Parkview; Prairie Trail Cowboy Church; Riverview; Salt City Cowboy Church;
Sojourn; South City; Southwest Baptist; 3WC; West Ridge Community; Westview.
Break
Greetings from KNCSB … Bob Mills. Report emphasized appreciation for the generous support of the Cooperative Program
(CP) and Viola Webb program. The CP funding allows Southern Baptists from KNCSB regions to reach out all across the world,
starting at home. Examples included: provide funds to both existing churches and new church plants; collegiate ministries; Super
Summer (where 133 came to faith this year!); and Wonderful Weekend for Women. These funds are also used to show Christ’s
love by
assisting the needs of others globally (ex: the Disaster Relief committee’s well/water projects in the Philippines). At this time,
the greatest deficit we, as The Church, have is our lack of true discipleship training. We must increase our discipleship. Church
growth and church planting would be much more easily realized if we concentrated on this training. KNCSB is the only state
convention that keeps 50% of its Viola Webb offerings within its borders in order to assist local churches, both established and
plants. Eph. 3:16-19: “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner
being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have
power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know
this love that
surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Constitution changes … Kelly Randolph. The Moderator opened the floor for discussion of the motion presented:
Tim Ohls, Believers, spoke against the motion.
John Barrett, Believers, spoke against the motion.
George Goudie, Believers, spoke against the motion.
Kelly Randolph, Committee Chair, spoke to clarify points raised by above mentioned Messengers.
Joe Boyd, Aviator Derby, spoke for the motion.
Carl Timmons, Believers, spoke against the motion.
Kelly Randolph, Committee Chair, spoke to clarify points raised by above mentioned Messengers.
Joe Boyd, Aviator Derby, spoke for the motion.
The Moderator then moved on to the vote. The motion was presented as proposed with instructions (yes = for amendment; no =
rejection of amendment in its entirety). Ballots were passed out, marked, and collected.
Election of Officers … Jerry Elder. See page 36 of the Annual Book of Reports. Approved.
Committee on Committees … Mark Jackson. See page 35 of the Annual Book of Reports. Mason Lampkin from Metropolitan
added to the Credentials Committee. Approved.
Time, Place, & Preacher Report … Dennis Burns. See page 36 of the Annual Book of Reports. Approved.
Praise & worship … River Community Worship Team
Annual Sermon … Dave Mitchell. Reference: Judges 3 “Whoops, I did it again!” (Christianity vs. popular culture, specifically gay
marriage and Supreme Court decision). 1. God is incredibly comfortable in allowing “test” of allegiance to “remain in the land”. 2.
We can cry out to God earlier (pray for deliverers). 3. I doubt my ability to deliver. “CAN I DO IT?” Results of Ballot Vote … Dennis Burns. The marked ballots had been counted and the results were as follows: 93 in favor/37
opposed. Constitution changes were Approved. The meeting was concluded with prayer.

Heart of Kansas Southern Baptist Association
Executive Board Meeting
Midway Baptist Church
January 13, 2015
Ray Emery, pastor of Midway Baptist, welcomed attendees and opened with scripture (Hebrews 11:13-16) and prayer.
Moderator Dennis Burns called the meeting to order. Heart of Kansas received a Letter of Withdrawal from Believers’ Southern Baptist, effective November 1, 2014. This action will affect various Committees. Withdrawal recognized.
Past Minutes … Dennis Burns. Review of Minutes from October 6, 2014 Annual Meeting. Minutes approved.
AMDC … Ray Emery. Believers’ Juvenile Detention Facility (JDF) Ministry has been partly funded ($150/month) by HOKSBA’s Viola Webb account since Loren Phippen retired from HOKSBA in 2012. In light of Believers’ unanimous withdrawal from HOKSBA, AMDC recommends discontinuing this monthly funding. Recommendation approved.
Financial Report … Darrell Duncan. We ended the year in a secure financial position. Church giving was $16,000 behind our budgeted income amount; however, spending was lower than budgeted. General Fund analysis shows that we started
2014 with a balance of $92,000; our new balance is $143,000. Report approved.
Hispanic Church Plant Report … Abraham Arevalo.
• 2015 is going to be a great year for Hispanic Church work. We ask for prayers in support of these plans.
• We will be hosting our first Hispanic Church Plant Network meeting In Topeka, February 2 – 3. Persons from South Sioux City, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri, to name a few, will be there to learn how to be more intentional in our church planting and how to train mentors.
• We will be hosting a Disaster Relief Training in Spanish February 6 – 7. Our NAMB representative will also be in attendance.
• At the same time, Iglesia Bautista Logos (Cristian Alvarado) is growing. We are so excited at what the Lord is doing out of
their weekly meetings. Robert Hazen is also starting a plant in Winfield to reach the Hispanic population there. DOAM Report … Glenn Davis.
• HOKSBA will be holding Disaster Relief training in English, also. Glenn will be sending out a follow-up email; if you are interested, please reply for more information.
• Glenn was able to attend the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s Conference, which addressed homosexuality, in October. For more information and for professional resources, visit their website at www.erlc.org.
• John Hawkins will be in Wichita at the invitation of Terry Williams and River Community Church. We will have the opportunity to hear from him as well. HOKSBA will be hosting a luncheon this Thursday (January 15). We will meet at noon at River
Community Church, 2130 N. Oliver. Please RSVP to our office if you would like to attend.
• For the last two or three years, KNCSB has had a task force on the Future. One of the takeaways from this group is an encouragement for KNCSB to start strategic agreements with the Associations to formalize our relational ministries. HOKSBA
would like to create a task force to create our agreement, using KNCSB’s as a template. We will not be changing our relationship with KNSCB; only formalizing it.
Agreement Task force … Kelly Randolph. The Association has been asked to put together a task force to create an agreement to clarify and strengthen our relationship with KNCSB. We will present this agreement to the Executive Board at a future
meeting. Please pray for the team, and encourage them in their work on our behalf. Appointed by Moderator.
Kelly Randolph, Pastor at Country Acres Baptist Church, Wichita
Chad Pearce, Pastor at Journey the Way, Wichita
Mason Lampkin, Pastor at Metropolitan Baptist Church, Wichita
David Mitchell, Pastor at West Ridge Community Church, Wichita
Don Mayberry, Pastor at Three Wooden Crosses, Augusta

Mason Lampkin, Pastor at Metropolitan Baptist Church, Wichita
David Mitchell, Pastor at West Ridge Community Church, Wichita
Don Mayberry, Pastor at Three Wooden Crosses, Augusta
Our team met on March 23, 2015. Glenn Davis and Bob Mills were also present. As we discussed the partnership agreement, it became clear that in order to complete the shared ministry agreement with KNCSB, we needed to clarify what our
associational ministry strategies would be in the near future.
With this background, we would like to recommend the following to the HOKSBA Executive Board: that the shared ministry agreement team preciously approved by the Executive Board be expanded to include Brad Simmons (HOKSBA) and Ryan McCoskey (The Seed), and that the purpose of this group also be extended to include clarifying and recommending associational ministry strategies for the near future. The team will report back to the Executive Board with recommendations at a
future meeting. Recommendation approved.
Hispanic Church Plant Report … Abraham Arevalo.
• Changes in the Association life have directly affected the Hispanic work in our area. The last few months have been very
important for the network of Hispanic Church Planters – have been able to connect with different Associational and State
Conventions, and held training for the development of leadership.
• Two new Church Plants have been started (or will start May 1) in the Wichita area.
• Please pray for three new Church Plants in Nebraska, with another hopefully starting in the Topeka area.
Church Plant Report … Brad Simmons.
• We are exploring new Church Plants in the Wichita area as a way to serve “new to Wichita” cultures, including West African
and Micronesian refugees.
• City Life & Journey the Way are sending Church Planters to start churches in San Diego, CA and Lee Summit, MO. Please
pray for their fundraising efforts. 12

DOAM Report … Glenn Davis.
• Thankful for the unity with which FBC Clearwater could join HOKSBA this morning.
• There will be a mission team in town from Waterloo, IA in the next few weeks. If you could use some assistance at your

repaid about half.
• Metropolitan Vietnamese has purchased a new building, and is starting the process of becoming their own church (name,
501©3, etc).
• Alan and Bethany Dawson, missionaries, will be returning to the States in October. Will need $1,600 for a vehicle. Priscilla
Sapp will be helping them to make this transition; helping to raise funds. HOKSBA’s Advisory Team thinks we should help
with some money, somewhere between $500 - $1,000. Motion? Michael Scott, Calvary Baptist; 2nd – Ray Emery, Midway
Baptist Church. Motion approved to grant $1,000 from excess in a designated account.
• HOKSBA yard is in need of attention. We have a bid for between $5,000 - $6,000 to: find/fix well, install new sprinklers,
and install new landscaping. We have funds in a designated account that have never been used. Recommendation by Ray
Emery that we allot up to $6,000 to repair landscaping and well-systems. Seconded by Dale Kelly, FBC Maize. Recommendation approved.
The meeting was concluded with prayer.

moving to Topeka next year. We will also use this time to develop strategies for his new plant.
• 100 youth attended the Latino Super Summer in June. We use this time as a way to develop leadership and plant seeds
for future church plants/leaders. Twenty-two kids gave their lives to the Lord; 60 others made personal commitments. • Mission teams from Arkansas traveled to Wichita in June to assist Casa de Dios and Sojourn.
• We will be “restarting” Iglesia Bautista Getsemani, and are in need of a sponsor church to assist with this process. For
more information on what this sponsorship will entail, please contact Abraham at the office.

American Mission Board, and Kansas Nebraska Convention of
southern Baptists. The AMDC
is also responsible for approving funding for Church Planters
who receive support from these
sources.
The AMDC also oversees a
Mission Money fund of $12,000
that is distributed for special
projects to churches with requests
that fall within specific parameters. In the 2015 Associational
year the AMDC approved Mis-
sion Money for ministry projects
at the following churches: First
Southern Hutch, Church Ignited, CenterPoint, Tyler Road, 3WC,
and Aviator.
Every request is carefully considered before being granted to
ensure they fall within the guidelines set for funding. The AMDC
takes seriously the stewardship of
the kingdom resources for which
it is responsible. It has been so
rewarding to hear how these small
investments, used by our wonderful pastors, have resulted in lives
changed by the Gospel. If you
have an idea for a special ministry
project through your church, and
find you need help with funding,
consider making a request to the
AMDC.

Letter from our Hispanic CPC
Abraham Arevalo
We thank the Lord for all the people He is calling to reach the Hispanic
community from Kansas and Nebraska. We truly believe that many great thinks
are ahead of us. Here is a small report on Hispanic Church Planting in east
Kansas and Nebraska.
Principe de Paz is a new church in Wichita. Church planter Baldemar Ziad started this church, which is sponsored by Parkview
Baptist Church. They have held regular services at Parkview since May.
Iglesia Bautista Logos, a church plant sponsor by Tyler Road Baptist Church, is now meeting in a new location. Olivet Baptist
Church has opened their doors for Logos, and they are now having services at Olivet on Sunday mornings under a new
name “Encuentro con Cristo”. Two new families had joined the church since the change of location. Please pray for Cristian
and Nelly Alvarado as they lead this church.
Jonathan Castillo is now serving as a church planter apprentice at Encuentro con Cristo. In January 2016, Jonathan and his
wife Betsy will move to Topeka to start a new Hispanic church sponsored by First Baptist Church in Topeka.
Roberto and Vicky Hazen, a church plating missionaries supported by Country Acres Baptist Church, are reaching to the
Hispanics in the Winfield and Arkansas City Area. Worship services in Spanish are being held at Arkansas City on Saturdays
and Sundays at Winfield. Bible studies, kids’, and youth activities are happening through out the week in both locations.
Going further north, a great church planting effort is being developed at east Nebraska. A new church plant is now a reality
at Madison and plans are being develop for Grand Island, Columbus, and Lincoln. Pray for the vision God is giving to David
Martinez, pastor of Northern Heights Hispanic Church, and for the team that is working with him to develop and implement
this strategy for East Nebraska.
We appreciate so much your prayers for us. Please pray for wisdom, direction, and health for Ester and for me. Pray also for
our kids who are going through important transitions in their lives. And, also pray for the pastors, church planters, and all the
people we have the honor to serve and love.

Letter from our CPC
Brad Simmons
God continues to use the churches and church plants of the Heart of Kansas to plant
new churches and reach the lost around us. Some exciting events this year include:
•
•
Aviator Church, which started in 2008, baptized their 1,000th person this year.
Journey the Way sent their Worship Pastor, Dave Gass, and several families to Lee’s Summit, Missouri to plant a
church in that city.
•
City Life Church sent their Worship pastor, Dale Huntington, and several families to San Diego, his hometown, to
plant a church in that city.
•
Metropolitan Baptist Church has hosted a Vietnamese congregation for many years. With Metropolitan’s support,
that congregation has taken its first steps towards independence and is looking to move to another part of the city in the
near future.
There is such great cooperation between the churches in the Heart of Kansas and their willingness to share resources. For
most churches, one of their most significant resources is their building, which happens to be one of the greatest needs for
church plants. Many church buildings throughout the association are home to more than one church. What a great way to
use the resources of the Kingdom of God!
The coming year promises to be exciting as well, as men and families God has called to start new churches begin to gather.
I am thankful for the commitment to church planting that the churches of the Heart of Kansas has made as we work
together to reach the hundreds of thousands of lost people that live around us.

“For just as the body is one and has many
members, and all the members of the body,
though many, are one body, so it is with
Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized
- Jews or Greeks, slaves or free - and all were
made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does
not consists of one member but of many.”
1 Corinthians 12:12-14
