Leaving a Legacy

Many things are passed down from generation to generation. Our families have the greatest impact on our development. We inherit mannerisms, view points on life, favorite sports teams, and many other traits and preferences from our parents. Sometimes, the things that are learned, mimicked, or passed down are not always positive. My family lineage is […]

It’s Time To Go Organic

When Snyder Memorial Baptist Church conducted the first Inasmuch Day in 1995, no one had any idea what was about to happen. They had no idea that dozens of churches right there in Fayetteville, NC would join them to serve more and more people. They had no idea that churches in surrounding counties would want to be […]

Operation Inasmuch Express

Here at Operation Inasmuch, we spent all of 2020 and the first part of 2021 trying to encourage the Church to not sit idly and forget about the community, our neighbors, that are hurting and still need to be reached for Jesus.

Unifying Communities Through Operation Inasmuch

If one church can make a lasting difference in its community through Inasmuch, two or more churches can broaden the impact. Unity is so vital in the church. And I’m not only talking about “little C” churches. The CHURCH is made up of the entire body of Christ. Unity among bodies of believers is so […]

A “Founder” of Operation Inasmuch has Died

Colbert Dilday of Snyder Memorial Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC, the place of origination for Inasmuch, passed away on June 13, 2020.

Serving in today’s world will be different. We are faced with new challenges, emotions, and struggles that make us give pause to serving in the methods that we were used to before the COVID-19 pandemic.
