WHAT IS THE TBSA?

The TBSA is an organization of the Tennessee Baptist Convention designed to support and assist church, association, state and SBC agency secretaries and ministry assistants.

A WORD TO MINISTRY ASSISTANTS AND SECRETARIES

  • How do you make sure that you are doing the best job you can?
