SABATTUS – Pastor MaryBeth Caffey of Pathway Community Church has returned from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship General Assembly in Alabama.

Caffey attended the 14th General Assembly June 24 to 26, which brought more than 3,000 attendees to Birmingham. Founded in 1991, the organization is a fellowship of Baptist Christians and churches that have a passion for sharing the gospel with others, along with a commitment to Baptist principles of faith and practice.

Headquartered in Atlanta, the fellowship holds the annual General Assembly for worship, fellowship, education, election of national officers and approval of an annual budget.

This year’s assembly also included more than 130 ministry workshops covering a wide array of topics, which included theology, effective communication, managing change and conflict within the local church and the emerging church.

Caffey noted, “It was very rewarding to be in the midst of so many committed Christians. Their faith and actions were very inspirational and encouraging to me as a pastor.”

The fellowship is currently supported by more than 1,800 churches and an additional 3,000 individuals nationwide. As a result, the fellowship partners with 13 theology schools and has 150 global mission field personnel serving in North America and around the world.
