Bivocational Small Church Ministries Coordinator

Rev. Roy Helms


Working Together in His Service


I want to take this opportunity in my first Messenger article to say “thank you.”

First of all, I want to thank the Lord for another avenue of service to Him and His people.  I am humbled that He would choose me for this service.

I also want to thank you, the messengers of the Union Baptist Association, for your vote approving my selection for this position.  I am so appreciative of your confidence in me and look forward to serving you and working with you and your churches.

I also thank the Staff Relations Committee for their hard and diligent work in the process of finding a Bivocational Ministries Coordinator.  I am grateful for the professional, yet loving and graceful, way they handled the interviewing process with me and their overwhelming support of my nomination to the messengers of the Association.  This committee made the process a blessing for me.

Finally, I thank Dr. Cook for his support and encouragement throughout the selection process.  His words of encouragement and his prayers helped me make the decision to accept this position.  To him personally, I say, “Thank you, Eric. I love you my brother, and I look forward to serving alongside you.”

I am excited about what God has in store for us individually and as an Association as we all work together to advance His kingdom.  Our mission as an Association is “. . . to support cooperating churches in their divinely appointed task of fulfilling the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19-20)” My goal is to find ways to help accomplish this mission as we look for ways to strengthen churches, promote missions, develop leadership, and nurture fellowship. I look forward to opportunities to do these things with you. Please call me through the UBA office 704-283-8383 or my personal number 704-254-5589.  I am available and want to assist you in any way I can. 

Working Together in His Service, 

Roy   Pr. 3:5-6
