The White County Baptist Association is a member of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board. The WCBA includes 12 member churches: Bethel, Center, Chattahoochee, Cleveland First, Friendship, Helen First, Mt View, Mt Yonah, Shoal Creek, Tesnatee, Union and White Creek Baptist Churches. We encourage and assist each other, our pastors, and members. We work with our communities for good while spreading the Word and encouraging people to find a home church.
Under the leadership of the Executive Director Bill Terry, the White County Baptist Association has been able to bring back past ministries and assist new ones. With the support of our member churches, WCBA hosts the Family Fun Day ministry at Freedom Park, Wild Game Dinner at Mt Yonah Baptist Church, and the Ga Baptist Dental Clinic, also at Mt Yonah Baptist Church.
The Association also supports many local organizations like the Cleveland Care Center, Caring and Sharing, Catalyst Christian Learning Center, Backpack Buddies, Appalachian Backpack Ministry, NE Ga Christian Counseling ,and the athletic program in the schools. Yearly the White County Baptist Association awards a scholarship to a deserving student at Truett McConnell University.
The WCBA churches work together to assist each other. If one has a need for workers for VBS, food pantry, training, we can draw upon each other. Just let the Association know, and we will get the word out. We have also had the Wild Game Dinner in years past, a multi-church evangelistic gathering to spread God’s Word, working together for the joy of the Lord.
