Breaking News

This just in from the Coach’s office: InBounds Ministries has agreed to a partnership for 2022 Season with the Marshall Baptist Association in the utilization of the Marshall Baptist Retreat Center, located on beautiful Lake Guntersville (AL). Coach Burden (InBounds Ministries) will continue to direct InBounds while also serving as the Interim Retreat Center Director of Development. (This is simply an extension of the local part of our mission…)


The agreement includes the opportunity for InBounds to utilize the facility as its “home court” for the 2022 season, and for the Burdens to live on site; Coach Burden will in turn handle the booking load of the camp while helping implement new vision for the churches of the MBA to reach the community. (InBounds will continue its national and international outreach, while focusing local efforts at the retreat.)


Citing a kindred desire to [“fulfill the Great Commission of evangelism and discipleship; according to the Great Commandment to love God and love others; via the Great Game Plan to reach our local, national, and international communities”], Coach Burden and Mike Foreman (Marshall Baptist, Association Missions Strategist) have looked at ways to steward the amazing facility the association has been blessed with in reaching our “Jerusalem” (Acts 1:8)


“I have been praying and felt the Lord leading heavily that we needed to establish a better local presence with InBounds here in Alabama. InBounds exists to support local churches! This gives me a great opportunity to do this for the MBA. Along with that I have been looking for ways to more firmly establish our Red Shirt Year (apprenticeship GAP program.) This provides a great platform for that as well!” (Coach Burden)


Prayer needs:

·         Wisdom in planning for local outreach (already have some GREAT things on the agenda and have made many new acquaintances)

·         My (Coach B’s) upcoming travel schedule as I am speaking/support-raising at churches in IL(2), VA, and FL over the next couple months, while also serving with our local church

·         Maintenance needs on the ministry van; wisdom on transportation needs

·         (SELFISH REQUEST) Would love to have a golf cart or UTV to utilize on the grounds at the retreat we are serving

·         Plans for another trip to the Dominican Republic

·         Plans for summer leadership camps and fall tour

·         Development of our Red Shirt Year (GAP program) [Be watching for information coming soon!]
