N&O Article about Our New Pastor

New Pastor

Rev. Andrea Dellinger Jones has been named the new senior minister of Millbrook Baptist Church.

Sunday (April 6) will be her first service.  A formal installation service will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rev. Jones brings more than eight years of ministerial experience and leadership in local churches in Georgia and Virginia.  She comes to Millbrook Baptist from Chestnut Grove Baptist Church in Earlysville, Va.

The church's 11th senior minister in its 133-year history, Rev. Jones is the church's first woman senior minister - and one of only a handful in North Carolina.

According to an article last year in "Baptist Women in Ministry" a 2006 study counted 12 female pastors and copastors in the state.  "We are rare in numbers." Jones said.

She is a graduate of Rhodes College and the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University and is currently completing her Doctor of Ministry degree at the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, Va.

Rev. Jones hails from Rome, Georgia and is married to Brent Jones who is currently completing his Ph.D. in American Religious History through the University of Virginia.

"Rev. Jones is a great fit for Millbrook Baptist at this time in our history," said Van Ward, chair of the Pastor Search Committee. "Over the generations, Millbrook has engaged the culture of each era, and we look forward to new ways in which we can engage the culture of the 21st century."

Rev. Jones' appointment coincides with major construction at Millbrook Baptist.  Targeted for completion in June, the project will add more than 8,000 square feet of education space.

Remembering Through Service

Remembering Through Service   

             Tuesday, September 11th was a day to remember, celebrate and volunteer. Many spent this day reflecting, serving and healing. Activate Good, a local nonprofit organization, offered several opportunities across the county to help make a difference on this day of service and remembrance. Many spent part of their day painting, gardening, weeding, sorting, stocking, tutoring and building. As we took action to assist our fellow man, we saw smiles, tears, relief and grace. The support offered by the volunteers to the agencies, individuals, organizations and schools will help make a difference in the community as well as in our own lives. 
            One of the sites, Urban Ministries, offers many help with food, medical treatment and job skills. They have a garden on site which supplies fresh produce to their Food Pantry as well as skills in learning to grow your own. It was a delight to help Dr. Majors (now retired) and James (from Red Hat Corporation) pick the last of the summer vegetables and hear about what a blessing this garden is for him and others at Urban Ministries. Josephine weighed the produce and added it to the bags of groceries others had prepared for needy families. As we ended our time together, it was a delight to see the smiles on the faces of the families taking bags of food that would help make a difference in their lives. Service for others is a way to let the light of Jesus’ love shine through!
New Building Dedication

Dedication and Dreams

          The ideas and dreams of a building project that began well over ten years ago have now become a reality.  For some it has been a long wait.  Millbrook Baptist Church can again open its front doors to all who wish to join us.  We are beginning to use the spacious classrooms and to enjoy the wonderful facilities that reflect the fruits of labor and love for this church.  There is just one thing left to do.  Give thanks.

          The rich history of Millbrook Baptist Church has experienced many thankful occasions, but few as momentous as this one.  Years ago the building fund was set up and generous contributions were made and accumulated.  Through these years many people have spent long hours in planning meetings and discussion groups.  Groups within the church were asked to express ther needs for space and design.

          Then, just a little over a year ago, when the rising cost of construction and limited funds made it look as if the dream would be postponed indefinitely, a generous gift restarted the engine of progress.  Smaller obstacles fell away.  The object of all the planning and praying begin to rise from the ground and take shape...the completed building unites our church and exceeds all our expectations.

"Building on the Word" -- A Walk-Through of Our New Building

On Sunday, May 18, 2008 at the close of our worship service, everyone had the opportunity to tour our new building and to write their favorite bible verse on the unfinished floor of the new addition.  When the building is completely finished, what we have written will be covered by the permanent flooring, but we will know the versus are there and that we are building on the Word!
