Evangelist and motivational speaker David Ring will speak at First Baptist Church of Greater Toledo on May 4 at 7 PM. Ring has cerebral palsy and since 1973 he has challenged thousands of people with his signature message - "I have cerebral palsy... What's your problem?" This is a free event. A love offering will be taken.
You’ve never heard a speaker quite like David Ring. Although difficult to understand at first, you will soon find yourself captured by his quick wit and warm personality.
As a nationally known speaker since 1973, David shares his story with over 100,000 people each year at churches, conventions, schools and corporate events. He has been featured on numerous occasions on several nationally televised programs.

TAABA joins with St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church (1502 North Detroit Avenue, Toledo) honoring our current TAABA Moderator, Rev. James Willis, for ten years of faithful service along with First Lady Linnie B. Willis. Pastor Willis is a servant of the Servant, dedicated to God's ministry not only at St. Paul but through our association, the state and the country. He truly answered the call of God and said, "Here am I, send me!" This was the theme for a wonderful day of activities based on Isaiah 2:8 on October 20, 2013. The day began with a praise celebration at the morning worship service. A second service was held that afternoon to recognize Pastor and First Lady Willis. TAABA celebrates with St. Paul's in this wondrous time of honor for a family committed to God in faithful service!
Our Fall Board Meeting was held September 23, 2013 at 6:00 p,m, at St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. It was a wonderful time as we gathered to make plans for upcoming events including our Fall Rally and winter activities. We thank St. Paul's for hosting this event and look forward to gathering again!
