Pray for the Colemans

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Dan Coleman says he and his wife, Amanda, are “New Englanders who know New England.” As missionaries to their native culture, they intuitively created an outreach strategy contextualized to their community. From city officials to families with kids, members of Kennebec Community Church are constantly building relationships with the people around them. Running…

Pray for the Parrishes

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Kelly and Brandi Parrish started praying about church planting while living in Texas. It would mean leaving family, friends and the state they loved. One thing that helped during those transitional times was asking God to break their hearts for the people in Colorado, to birth love for the strangers who would soon…

Pray for the Dahls

During Jacob Dahl’s senior year of college at Washington State University, Jesus came into his life and changed him forever. So when the opportunity to plant a church on a college campus arose, Jacob and his wife, Jessica, jumped at the chance. Resonate Church seeks to befriend the lost—a large population at Central Washington University (CWU) in Ellensburg, since only 1 in 10 students are followers of Jesus. The best time to reach students is the beginning of the school…

Most importantly, the Carrs set up a supplementary reading course—a class where…

Pray for the Lenos

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Garth and Patty Leno had never considered planting a church. Garth had preached before as a minister on staff. But church planting? He and Patty were content inviting people into their Windsor, Ontario home for a Saturday evening Bible study. However, God began to reveal He had other plans. The Bible study outgrew…

Pray for the Robersons

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day.  Today, pray for the Robersons. As a Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) church planter, James Roberson and his wife, Natarsha, moved their family to unfamiliar Brooklyn to plant The Bridge Church. James trusted the Lord to open the right doors for him. “I just opened up the book of Acts and tried it,” he…

Thank You, Rocky Creek

Dear Rocky Creek Family, “Only fear the LORD and serve Him faithfully with all your heart.  For consider what great things He has done for you” (1 Sam. 12:24).   We serve a great God.  He excels in nothing less than doing great things. I now consider that one of the great things He has done for me is allowing me the privilege to pastor you.  After the months of discerning God’s will with the search team, we were blessed…
