The Fellowship of Baptist Educators is a service organization of more than 800 Baptist educators who use their educational skills to fulfill the Great Commission. Some members teach overseas; some work with internationals inA49306F9-11 the States; others send Bibles and books to overseas schools and Seminaries; and others enlist Pen Pals to correspond with students abroad.

They teach in public schools, private schools, universities and seminaries. Our membership includes coaches, librarians, administrators, and specialists in many fields. They range in age from recent graduates to those long retired. What they all share is a love for Christ and for using their teaching skills in fulfilling his Great Commission.

If you are an educator who is interested in missions, we invite you to join us. Membership is open to members of Baptist churches. Members of other Christian churches may become associate members and receive the newsletter and notification of opportunities to serve. There is no membership fee structure, but members are asked to contribute each year to cover publication expenses. All officers are volunteers.

The quarterly newsletter, Educomis, provides information about long and short-term missionary teaching opportunities in cooperation with the International Mission Board and other Baptist conventions and unions, and schools all over the world. We also share staff needs from many Christian schools around the world that educate children of missionaries, international business people, and embassy personnel. Between issues, the Fellowship of Baptist Educators sends information about special urgent needs directly to members who have the needed skills.

An Update from Volunteers for China

Led by David and Ann Wilson

Maryville, Tennessee USA


Editor's Note: We didn’t hear from David or Ann in time to get this in the current issue of Educomis, but wanted you to see this note. You will want to start planning now if you can help.


This Christmas due to your past prayers and/or your participating as a volunteer teacher or as a publicity agent, Volunteers for China was able to make contact with over 2000 Chinese friends with the Nativity message.


Volunteers for China (VFC) is a Tennessee non-profit organization focusing on doing legal education programs in China through native English speakers. This is the door that God has opened for Christians to go to China to teach students and Chinese English teachers. We have to plan now so we can share God’s love with students in July 2015.


We need to know if you will respond to God’s call to teach in China this July. The current dates are:


  • • July 4 to August 3 with return from Shanghaim working through Amity Foundation, Nanjing. Teach Chinese English Teachers. The program cost is $1600 plus air fare.
  • • July 2 to July 20 or July 9 to July 27, both with return from Beijing. Teach Chinese students and Chinese English teachers Changzhi, Shanxi. The three-week programs cost $1300; the four-week programs cost $1600, plus air fare.

Chinese

Both of these start dates could become four-week programs if the Lord gives us volunteers so that we can plan ahead. No one has to know Chinese; lesson plans are available; everyone needs a passport with expiration date AFTER January 31, 2016. Please PRAY, PLAN, and ACT! Do all three at the same time.


Let us hear from you at cen29529@centurytel.net or call us at 865-983-9852.


If you are willing to post materials for others to see at your church or school, we will be glad to send them to you.

You are invited to come to North Carolina next summer for fun, fellowship, and planning

The Fellowship of Baptist Educators is having its annual board meeting next July at the NCBM Missions Camp in Shelby, North Carolina.


This is a great opportunity to learn more about the organization, see how our new Books on Mission program works (and pack some Bibles and books to send to India if you would like). We can also arrange for you to see the sights you choose.  Let us know what you would like to do and we will make arrangements.


The board meeting starts at 1:00 p.m. on July 16 and ends after noon on July 17.  Attending will give you a good understanding of what we’ve accomplished this year and plan for the future.


Listed below are some of the sites to see in our area.


Here locally:

  • • Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby (Music and stories from the American South and the five string banjo master)
  • • Gardner-Webb University (The university where I taught for 34 ½ years and was the founding dean of the School of Divinity.)

In Charlotte:

  • • The Billy Graham Library (The house where he grew up and a “barn” out back that presents his ministry)
