Williamsburg—Virginia pastor Danny Davis takes on a new role next week serving the churches of Tates Creek Baptist Association as director of missions.
“It’s good to come back to Kentucky,” said Davis, a native of Williamsburg.
Davis has had a hand in increased baptisms, church attendance and missions involvement while serving as pastor at a number of churches in the Southeast.
“A big part of my ministry for the last 20 years has been a heavy missions focus by partnering with different entities, both in the states and overseas,” he said.
Davis said he hopes to lead Tates Creek Baptist churches along a similar path by coaching and encouraging them.
While pastor of Mount Hermon Baptist Church in Danville, Va., Davis saw more than 100 people participate in international or domestic mission trips in 2012. The church also set new missions giving records during its eight years under his leadership.
“I believe we have to have our eyes open to see where God is working and where God would have us join Him,” Davis said, referring to the need to develop ministry partnerships.
Davis also expressed a burden for pastors, especially those who feel isolated.
“We’re moving into a whole new phase in our culture,” he added, “and I would like to be there to encourage pastors and churches as they navigate the future that’s ahead of us.”
Davis is a 1978 graduate of Cumberland College, now University of the Cumberlands. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C., and a Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Theology degree from Columbia International University in Columbia, S.C.
As Tates Creek Association’s director of missions, Davis is charged with guiding 43 churches and two missions in Madison, Garrard and Irvine counties. (KBC)
