Somerset—Thomas Floyd has joined the Pulaski Baptist Association as their new director of missions. He began duties Nov. 7.
A 1989 graduate of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, Floyd brings with him more than 30 years of ministry experience in Kentucky, most recently as pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church since 1998.
“Tommy was very involved in the local association where he pastored and understands the importance of his new role in assisting churches, proving valuable to the association,” Eric Allen, missions mobilization team leader of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, said. “I anticipate a strong partnership with Pulaski Association under the leadership of Tommy Floyd.”
“The goal is to win the community for Jesus Christ, to get all the churches involved in the association, and to become more evangelistic. There are several churches that need revitalization, and I hope to get more involved in that endeavor,” Floyd shared.
His heart is with missions, and he desires to put some of his experience with missions’ endeavors over the past 30 years to good use within the Pulaski Association, he said. “I hope to get as many churches and individuals involved in missions as I can locally, nationally and internationally as well.”
Additionally, Floyd wants to use his role as director of missions to get involved with the pastors and churches. “I think that’s the most vital part as director of missions, making that connection with pastors and churches. I’m excited about just being on the field and starting to make those relationships and from those relationships, laying that groundwork, helping them do kingdom work.”
Allen added, “I’m praying that Tommy’s passion for missions and evangelism is contagious and the churches of the association will work together to impact the lostness in Pulaski County.” (WR)
