We are so privileged to be serving in West Virginia at Galilean Baptist Church. As in most churches, we have our ups and downs. We started 2018 saying goodbye to one of our key men who was promoted to glory in early January. Even in that we have been able to see God’s mighty hand at work. Jim Evan’s prayer for as long as we have been at Galilean is that his 2 daughters and their families would start attending church again and that the family members who are not saved would get saved. Since Jim’s home going, his two daughters have been attending regularly with their children, and on [...]
A key word for us this year has been transition. At the end of 2017 we were beginning our transition out of Thousand Oaks, CA. After ministering there for 3 years, the Lord brought that church back to a position where they could again call a full-time pastor. As we sought God's will for our lives, two churches in CO contacted us for help. The one church was a new plant, two and a half years old, whose pastor was leaving to help plant another church. It was comprised of young families and filled with promise. This is the church we believed God wanted us to help, so at the [...]
Building a beautiful marriage is strikingly similar to building a beautiful house. In any construction project there is a certain amount of dust which is the evidence of progress being made. While there may not be literal dust in constructing a beautiful marriage, there certainly is evidence that it is taking place. All of us at Baptist Church Planters are excited to announce that my latest book is now available for purchase. We want to put it in the hands of every pastor, church librarian, Biblical counselor, small group Bible study leader, and couple of every age! May we present to you a dozen ways this exciting new book can [...]
Greetings from New Jersey! Please allow me to share with you some of the things that the Lord has been doing in our ministry during the past year! After twenty-three years of meeting in a converted 3-bedroom row-house in the City of Camden, one of the poorest cities in the nation, on January 7, 2018, we were able to relocate to the Township of Pennsauken by renting four rooms at a Lutheran Church. We presently conduct our Sunday morning service in their fellowship-hall while our nursery children, primaries and teens meet in three additional rooms. In Camden, we have ministered the gospel to hundreds of families, and have seen many [...]

BCP Family Camp 114 BCP missionaries, administration, staff, councilmen and speakers converged on the campus of Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA, for Family Camp July 17-20. It was a great time of relaxation and fellowship for all! Here is what one missionary shared: “We were truly refreshed and encouraged from being there.”
Brent and Michele began in the ministry of building churches – building lives in 2007 under Baptist Missionary Builders. They received much informal guidance from the leadership at BCP as they were getting started as missionaries and were thrilled when in 2010 BMB merged with BCP to form ChurchCare Construction. During their 11+ years of serving in this ministry, they had been privileged to work alongside their coworkers, Ron and Sandy Cornell. Other missionaries have come and gone during that time, but the Cornells have ministered with us right along. Together they have contributed to 30+ projects in various forms ranging from complete new buildings up to 20,000 sq. ft. [...]
The Lord has been doing many different things at Fellowship Baptist Church in Lorain, Ohio. We have had the opportunity to reach out to our community in diverse ways. One way is through our “open gym” nights where approximately 15-20 local teens and college students come, play basketball, and listen to the teaching of the Word and the Gospel. We have so far had 3 individuals entrust their lives to God through this ministry. Please keep praying for the many that come and hear about Christ but have not yet entrusted their lives to Jesus our Lord. Another community outreach has been visiting the local shelter and taking food and [...]
