March 22-24 were days of blessings, challenge and encouragement from the Word of God as we hosted our second tri-annual Leadership Summit at the Ministry Center in Grafton, Ohio. Missionaries from coast to coast, as well as many of our board members and a few special visitors, took part in this intensive training program themed Expect More. Missionary church planter Jim Mitchell from Thousand Oaks, CA, shared that the greatest blessing received was “good Bible teaching related to where we live as church planters.” Through expository preaching and practical teaching, the speakers shared ways that God helps us be the leaders, shepherds, evangelists and encouragers that He gives us the [...]

God works in truly great ways! We have seen His blessings on our family as we have grown from a family of six, to now having 4 grand children with one on the way! We have one wedding coming up in October of this year with Sharon to her fiancé Chris. They both serve in Iraq as civilian contractors and they both work with UAV’s. Crystal our oldest is in Wyoming with her husband and two boys, Bobby is in Florida with his wife and son, and Cheryl with our only granddaughter is in PA. Didn’t think I would ever be this old! But grand kids are great! [...]

We have seen God's hand of blessing in 2016 and look forward to what He has in store ahead. FAMILY BLESSINGS: Our family has grown! Kaia-Ann Grace Hansen was officially adopted into our family in November and Leroy & Kiersten were married Thanksgiving weekend. November was a full month of celebrating! Our family gatherings consist of 16 people with all of us plus spouses, grandkids, foster children, and foster grandchildren. That is a full life of blessings as each one loves the Lord and serves in our local church. CHURCH BLESSINGS: We have what this second largest city in all of New England needs...the life saving Gospel to share with [...]
John 14:1-3 says, “Let not your heart be troubled...In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” This Christmas, Crossroads Baptist Church in Tracy, CA, had a special program where each family brought a presentation of part of the Christmas story. There were readings, drama, music and multimedia presentations. As the program drew to a close, we began to see that God had orchestrated it all, [...]
Adam and Elizabeth Zamora and Wayne and Shanna Dale in Buckeye, AZ By the grace of God they will see the completion of a permanent building for Desert Hills Baptist Church in the next two months! It has been a challenging construction, but God has overcome each issue, and He gets all the glory! Many of God’s people, individuals, churches, BCP and agencies, have been involved in bringing them to this point. There are several ways you can still help: 1) Please pray that they will be able to get a Certificate of Occupancy by mid-December. 2) Please pray that God will supply the budget deficit of $350,000. 3) Please pray [...]
Chalco Hills Baptist Church started in 2009 with less than 20 people in regular attendance. On August 21st we experienced our highest attended service that was not a special event with 52 people on a Sunday morning! Several new families have become a regular part of our ministry just over this summer. Please pray they would continue to attend and become plugged into ministry. One of the new families started coming after a young couple invited them to Vacation Bible School. They had never been a part of a church before. After meeting our people and hearing the teaching of the Bible, the husband began listening to our sermons online [...]
There is so much that is happening in such a quick amount of time that it is difficult for me to encapsualize. It is good to start with " Praise the Lord, for His Mercy endures forever!" I have been preaching through Matthew--"you are the salt and light of the earth." Matthew 7: 7 deals with asking, seeking, and knocking. Our abiding, striving, and resting is a continual process. I am constantly evaluating the condition of my soul, the people of God, and the direction God desires the Church of God to go each step of the way. I realize that a true permanent change of heart and life actions come [...]
