Generations Free Will Baptist
On May 22, 2011, the Elders of Generations Free Will Baptist Church met for a regular meeting. But nothing would be regular about this meeting, as their facility would soon be destroyed by the deadly tornado which struck Joplin that afternoon.
SBI desired desperately to assist the good people of Joplin in reconstruction, but "marketing" just didn't seem like the right thing to do. Our people were there, helping our neighbors, but our "brand" was not. We worked with our families, our churches, and our friends to dig out from under this disaster.
We are most thankful to have been chosen as the church's partner in rebuilding, not because we capitalized on opportunity, but because we respected the path on which they found us.
