Embrace Baltimore Office Tour

As I continue with TheBaltimoreProject.com tour I wanted to take some time and help get you familiar with some of the great people I get to work with here in Baltimore. Embrace Baltimore is an effort within our denomination (SBC) called a "Strategic Focus City". The idea is basically to adopt a city for a catalytic period of approximately two years with the purpose being to saturate an area with resources, training and awareness. Past cities included in this endeavor included areas like New York, Chicago and Cleveland. Currently along with Baltimore the SBC is doing something similar in San Diego.

I'm jumping into the Embrace Baltimore effort about half-way through their time here so we have a year to get it done together before the team spreads out and goes about whatever God has next for each of them. It's this catalytic effort that keeps the office buzzing and full of energy. From the beginning of the video you will notice that the Embrace Baltimore offices are shared/overlapped right now with the staff of the BBA (Baltimore Baptist Association).

During my drop-in I happened to bump into the Director of the Embrace Baltimore effort- Dr. Bob Mackey. Dr. Mackey is a humble guy with an amazing heart to get things done. I don't blow smoke when it comes to talking positively about people... Bob Mackey is a stand up guy and it's been an honor to work with him. Check out the video below as you get a tour from the top dog himself.
