MADISONVILLE, Ky. — A longtime missionary to South America has been named director of missions in the Little Bethel Baptist Association based in Madisonville.
Bill Egbert began his new role on Tuesday.
Egbert is a Madisonville native with degrees from Campbellsville University and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
He and his wife Linda served with the International Mission Board since 1994, and spent most of that time in Columbia.
“Our marching orders are from Acts 1:8,” Egbert said, referencing the scripture that says “you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Egbert says he looks forward to being a pastor to the pastors in the Little Bethel association.
