First Baptist Church, Jasper, member W. Frank Banks led a team to India March 23–31.
Banks, along with Lucky Teague, director of missions for Walker Baptist Association; Gene Carver, pastor of First Baptist Church, Cordova; and Don McLaughlin, a Florida Baptist, taught and trained Indian pastors for five days at Tentmakers School, a seminary in the Bangalore area. They conducted training in three areas: the role of the pastor, the role of the deacon and doctrine.
“Everyone had a great experience in getting to know the Indian pastors and to pray with them and love on them … and give a word of encouragement to them as well,” said Banks, who is a deacon at First, Jasper. “We hope to have a continuing impact in the operation of Tentmakers School.”
