Terry Long, director of missions (DOM) for Choctaw Baptist Association, was named an associate in the office of evangelism for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions recently. In this role, he serves part time as the evangelism strategist for the state’s southern region while continuing to serve Choctaw Association.
“I feel so humbled by the opportunity to serve alongside Dr. Sammy Gilbreath, Phil Winningham and the evangelism office,” Long said, noting that he will assist pastors and churches “in developing and implementing effective evangelism strategies to reach the state of Alabama for Jesus.”
Gilbreath, director of the evangelism office, said Long “fits like a top” on the evangelism team.
“He is a blessing, he’s sincere and he has a passion for reaching people for Christ. The pastors love him too,” Gilbreath said. “He’s had such an impact in Choctaw Association. We’re excited about him putting that DNA on his work all across the southern part of the state.”
Long said he is thrilled as well.
“I am very, very excited about serving my Lord and Alabama Baptists in this new capacity,” he said. (Grace Thornton)
