January 28--  There's a new Executive Director of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board and Thomas Hammond is on a listening tour while visiting with representatives of Georgia's 3,200 Baptist churches.

thomashammondHammond visited Lyons First Baptist Church as part of the tour to meet with area ministers and said religion has challenges to overcome in today's society.

"I think there are several things which are creating more difficulty for our churches in reaching the lost.  The culture is obviously changing and we're seeing more and more people who weren't raised in church and they don't have any type of a Biblical background. 

At the same time, our churches have become too inwardly focused and we need to encourage them to look out at the mission field because it's ripe under the harvest," he said.
