Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

Beloved, how delighted I am to be able to greet each of you in the majestic name of Jesus, the Christ. I am thankful to each of you for the tremendous support of our beloved Alabama State Missionary Baptist Convention. Your continued efforts enable us to positively impact this world through mission, evangelism, and education.

We are asking each of you to become monthly supporters as we seek to provide steady and funding for Selma University and implement strategic ministry initiatives. As many of you are aware, we have created the Scruggs-Swift Scholarship Fund to Selma University in an effort to assist pastors in their educational endeavors.

Also, we will this year seek to host a minimum of two additional educational offerings. So, please consider giving to these ambitious efforts. We are thankful to each of you for what you do for the cause of Christ. May God’s Blessings be upon you and yours.

In the Name of Christ of Calvary,

Melvin Owens
