          Soul Hunters Outdoor Ministry is a ministry sponsored by the Eastern Baptist Association.  The purpose of this ministry is to reach the people of our communities right where they are. What is meant by that is we live in communities where people enjoy hunting, fishing and outdoor activities. Soul Hunters Outdoor Ministry is designed to take ministry to them. Our ministry team has been preparing and training to help our local churches host outdoor events for the purpose of community outreach. 

            Our one-day event normally starts at 10am with a short introduction and devotion. Our ministry team then divides the group into 6 different teams that will go out and practice  6 hunting skills. These skills include Archery, Skeet Shooting, 22 Pistol Target  Shooting,  Rifle Target Shooting, Tomahawk  Throwing & Knife Throwing. After the practice round  lunch is provided by the host church and then the competition begins. Each person will compete in all 6 skill events. At the end of the day there will be a time of worship and a gospel centered message, followed by an Awards Ceremony.

            The ministry team is planning 4 associational events which will consist of a men’s event, women’s event, youth event, and a couple’s event. The ministry team is also available to any church that would like  to host their own event. The ministry team is also planning to host  fishing trips and possibly hunting trips.

            If you are interested in joining our ministry team, hosting an event or donating to this ministry please contact  Richard Weeks at EBA office phone 910-293-7077  cell phone 910-590-1720 email richard@easternbaptistlife.com

            The Association has been blessed by a couple of sponsors that have allowed for the purchase of  a few start up items. The Association is currently working on constructing a mobile elevated shooting platform. Donations will be much appreciated- just contact Richard Weeks, (See contact info above).

Columbus Baptist Association hosted an event March 20th

Our ministry team had a great time as we were able to share Jesus and our testimonies through our

Soul Hunter's Ministry. This ministry is a great way to connect with people that have a passion for God's great outdoors but they do not know about the Creator. We went to share all about this amazing God and the great love that He has for every one of us.

Fantastic Event!
