In August of 2013, BCP officially included the ministry designation of Church Revitalization in our Mission Statement. Bible Baptist Church in New Milford, CT, came under BCP in need of revitalization. Serving there are Associate Church Planter Rob and Beth Worthington, and new appointees Tim and Marsha Weeks are helping there in the midst of deputation travels. The new name is Riverview Baptist Church, and the revitalization is progressing slowly toward being a growing and thriving light in the New Milford community. The church had three sections of its roof replaced by ChurchCare missionary builders in November 2013. The weekend of October 26, 2014, the church had their annual meeting to vote on [...]
Chip grew up on a 700 acre chicken farm just north of Syracuse, NY. He had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home, and his family was actively involved at Constantia Center Independent Baptist Church. At an early age, Chip knelt beside his bed, with his parents, and confessed his need for Jesus to save him from his sins. He was baptized as a teen and grew up serving with his church youth group. Any time that he was not working on the farm, Chip could be found singing in a school musical, chorus or quartet.

Brent and Michele Howard both grew up in Christian homes with a strong Godly influence from their families. God chose to bring them together to pass on that heritage to their 2 children, Ryanne (14) and Riley (12).

Michele is a trained teacher and has taken on the responsibility of teaching their children at home. Since 2007, they have been full-time missionary builders with ChurchCare Construction, traveling and living full-time in a 5th wheel RV. The Lord has allowed them to assist about 17 churches over the past 7 years with various building [...]
Church planting is a labor of love. In a Church plant with a majority of new believers, things move much more slowly, people develop less quickly, and the greatest challenge besides laborers is financing. God allowed Desert Hills Baptist Church to raise $230,000 towards the purchase of land and to close escrow in February. We are truly grateful for His provision. We currently are trying to raise monies to move forward with developing the land the Lord has provided. Building in the west is unique in that the costs associated are often higher than they would be in the Midwest or other places. We are looking at spending over $600,000 simply in site costs and permits. We are [...]
