The leadership of the Buncombe Baptist Association is saddened and grieved to learn of charges brought against Trent Holbert related to multiple sex offenses.Trent Holbert has served as lead pastor of The Ridge Church in Ridgecrest, NC but tendered his resignation on Wednesday 6/16/2021. In the past or present he has not served in any leadership role of the Buncombe Baptist Association. The care and protection of children and minors is a biblical and moral mandate that is taken seriously by every local church related to the Buncombe Association. Our prayers go out to victims of abuse and the families of abused victims. Our prayers also go out to the Holbert family. Our desire is for churches and ministries in our Association to become safe for survivors and safe from abuse. We encourage you to continue to pray for The Ridge church family as the Buncombe Associational Leadership walks with them through this journey of healing.              Perry Brindley, Associational Mission Strategist

Fill The Tank Sunday

“Fill the Tank” is a statewide emphasis to see believers baptized on Sept. 12 around the world. Emphasizing baptism on a specific day is a great way to encourage new believers to take the next step of obedience and faith while displaying a picture of the gospel to others.

For those of you new to “Serve Asheville,” it is an event that began many years ago when Fellowship Asheville Church was located at the downtown YMCA and they served the city through various acts of service on a Sunday morning instead of worshiping indoors. This was a jump start to an annual event where they invited other churches to join them in intentionally taking a time of the year to serve the communities as one big church. If you are interested in learning more, there will be an informational meeting on Thursday, June 24th at 12:00 pm at Fellowship Asheville Church (756 Fairview Road).If you would like more information, contact Amy Hinch at:
