What is “Intentional Transitional Ministries”?

2020-04-01T14:29:28-04:00

Intentional Transitional Ministries is just one tool God uses through Baptist Church Planters to serve churches. We were just starting our part-time partner-raising in January of 2019 when a pastor contacted me about a church in transition. I had just received a contact from another mission agency about a couple that wanted to serve churches in transition. I had no idea what God had intended for those two connections, but by May, Marty and Susan Basinger were serving the Gilcrest Baptist Church of Gilcrest, Colorado, as ITM pastor and wife. I am humbled by the amount of trust that the church and the Basingers had in the newly developing [...]

Revitalization – God’s Plan for Struggling Churches God’s hand of leading is perfectly clear in hindsight. As we looked back one year to the possibility of transferring to Florida to minister, God quickly turned our direction back to New York State. It was virtually instantaneously! A week and a half after we were ready to sign a rental agreement in Florida, we were living in Hilton, NY! I don’t believe any of that was a mistake. God turned us away from Hilton until His timing was right. As of March 1st of last year, we began our ministry at Emmanuel Baptist Church. For the first month we sat back and watched as ministry took [...]

Our Journey to Permanency - Pinecrest Baptist Church Our journey has been a long circuitous one, a journey of ups and downs, buying and selling, moving and settling, losing and growing, renovating and fixing, faltering and trusting; this journey of Faith taking us one step at a time without seeing the end result.  Yet, looking back and seeing the hand of our Sovereign God in all of it guiding the way, directing our paths, growing our faith, establishing His Church and securing our permanent home. Man has his own plans and supporting churches do too.  Whether it’s a three or five or seven year plan to completing a Work, [...]

Report from Peter and Mary Lou Jenks: It has been a busy and productive summer in Nebraska. One of the highlights was the Day Camp at Whispering Cedars Baptist Camp, which is located between the two church plants where we serve. Buses arrive on Monday morning and bring children K-6th grade to the camp.  Most of these children attend our JOY Clubs at Victory Baptist Church in Fullerton and Grace Baptist Church in Genoa.

Are you discouraged? Have you been downcast? Do you know others who feel faint-hearted? Chapter six of Galatians is God’s instruction for us how we are to deal with the frailties of this life. Hear this in Galatians 6:9-10 “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  (10)  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” It is hard for me to think of Jeremiah, the weeping prophet of the Bible. This man continued to be faithful in such adverse conditions. Praise the [...]
