Rod Baker, 2010 Disciples Men Layman of the Year

Each and every January for the past 20 years now, the Georgia Disciples Men Commission has been on the move. From as far east as Augusta to as far west as Marietta and as far south as Savannah to the North Metro area and Winder, this group has sought to recognize those men leading the way in demonstrating superb Christian character, ideals and service to others. Their efforts, their resolve, their loyalty and their love of Christ and His Church do not go unnoticed.

The 2010 Layman of the Year award was presented to Rod Baker of Lawrenceville First Christian Church on Sunday January 16, 2011.

Rod has been involved in the Region, the District, the Community and the Congregation in a variety of ways:

  • He has participated in Miracle Days and Camp Christian Workdays.
  • He has served on the Regional Board and Executive Committee as a member, Treasurer, and ardent Youth-a-palooza supporter.
  • He has attended many Georgia Men's Retreats and recently helped organize a NE District Men's Rally.
  • He has given time and energy to the Lawrenceville Co-op, the More Hands for God Mission Day and even his beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers (God bless him).
  • And, he has served First Christian Lawrenceville as deacon, elder, VBS supporter, property member and Board Chair.  In the words of a close friend of his, he's just naturally a " do whatever it takes whenever it needs to be done" kind of person at Lawrenceville First.

And, all the while, he's been a family man :
    Devoted Husband, Loving Father, and Proud Grandfather

Rod Baker is an outstanding choice for the 2010 Georgia Region LAYMAN OF THE YEAR !!!
