Begin Anew

Associational Emphasis Week

May 22-28 is Associational Emphasis Week. Each day this week the Nashville Baptist Association will be sharing a little bit of information about the various ministries we're involved in throughout our city and how you can pray for the continued expansion of Jesus' church in greater Nashville. 


Friday:  Begin Anew (formerly CWJC)

Twenty years ago, the NBA WMU Team built a community of believers who took a personal stake in the development of the most disadvantaged neighbors living in East Nashville. Today, this community is known as Begin Anew, a nonprofit ministry with seven program sites in Williamson and Davidson County. Begin Anew “empowers individuals to overcome the obstacles caused by poverty by providing education, mentoring and resources.” Women, men, and their children find spiritual transformation and gain skills to dramatically change their circumstances and their lives.


How You Can Pray:

  1. Pray for students to begin or grow in their relationship with Jesus.
  2. Pray for women and men to gain the skills and education they need to transform their circumstances and their lives.
  3. Pray for God to call forth 30 Christians to serve as prayer partners or encouragers with our students.
  4. Pray for God to call ESL and HSE (High School Equivalency) teachers and child care providers for a 10-week summer program.
