Why Partnership Matters


Why Partnership Matters Just as God designed every cell in the body to connect, it is His design for the people of His local churches to connect to one another. When a person fails to be linked to their local body, they become at risk and the body weakens. Even a struggling person connected to the body helps the body, for when the body shows care and provides help to this weaker one, it produces fruit. When pastors and local churches in an area assist each other, this also strengthens the body and causes more fruit. This fruit puts the joy of God in His people and glorifies the [...]

Ministry Update – what is “ITM”?


Intentional Transitional Ministry was born out of a need for churches to eliminate obstacles to their Biblical unity and mission in order to be fully prepared to call their next pastor. An ITM pastor walks through the transition with the church, assisting not only in enduring the transition time but seeking to develop spiritual leaders through gospel outreach and discipleship. The ITM (Intentional Transitional Ministries) fully launched in June of 2019 when Scott and Marti Owen (pictured top) were officially sent into full-time missions by CrossRoad Baptist Church of Ames, Iowa. Groundwork had already been done so another couple, Marty and Susan Basinger (pictured center), were ready to join [...]

Ministry Update – Tim and Susan Heinrich, serving Crossroads Baptist Church in Tracy,


Tim and Susan Heinrich - Crossroads Baptist Church in Tracy, CA In preparing for this current ministry update I went back and reread what we had written in 2019. It was both encouraging and discouraging. It was so encouraging to remember what God was doing in 2019. It was also very encouraging to be reminded of how God specifically answered many of the requests in this update! It was also a bit discouraging, to realize that we are, in many ways, back to where we were three years ago, and looking forward again. So, I’m going to parallel the two reports. Ministry update in pre-covid 2019 Ministry update [...]
