June 2013 ~ Tallahassee, FL

Walter and Beverly McDonald are serving in Tallahassee, Florida.  Providence Baptist Church is enjoying an increased number of people visiting and has seen a number of baptisms.  The believers are enjoying opportunities for fellowship and growth through home Bible studies, ladies' luncheons, men's fish fry, and fishing trips.  The church is reaching out into the community as well.  The depressed economy has caused an increase in the number of requests for financial help in the neighborhood.  The church's Bread Ministry is an outreach program that allows them to help meet these needs and provides an avenue of witness and tract distribution in both English and Spanish.  It is still their desire to [...]

May 2013 ~ Canastota, NY

This church plant is located in the heart of Upstate New York about 25 miles east of Syracuse, NY.   The decision to start Heritage Baptist took place in 2004 around a table in a restaurant in Canastota, NY.  Those present were Pastor & Deacons from Open Door Baptist Church in New Woodstock, NY, BCP's Field Director, John Little, Christian businessmen, Chuck Little, as well as Becky & I along with Aaron and Pam Hurlbert.  From that meeting, Heritage Baptist Church started as a Bible Study in early 2005 with 2-3 families meeting in the Day’s Inn Conference room.  We then moved to the VFW for 3-4  months holding Bible Studies once per week.  [...]

April 2013 ~ Buckeye, AZ

God has truly been good to the people of Desert Hills Baptist Church in 2013.  Over the last 5 years since we started we have seen a continued rotation of people as the economy has stagnated our community.   Recently, it appears that the economy has stabilized, and as a result we have not seen as much of a turnover as we have in the past.   We are excited to have more than a year or two to help develop and mature the people God has given us. In January two great things happened in our ministry.  First of all we moved our location from one school to another which is more centrally located.   In the past we have invited people [...]

10 Old Wives’ Tales About Church Growth

10 Old Wives' Tales About Church Growth – by Brian Orme There's a lot of discussion that goes on about church growth: what causes it; how to generate it; prepare for it; launch it; build it; cultivate it and even, to some degree, manufacture it. Many of the discussions are helpful, but there are a number of subtle beliefs that still creep up that aren't healthy. In fact, they're downright superstitious and, at times, dangerous to the church. I've collected these myths over many conversations, coffees and lunches with church leaders and I'd like to share them with you.   10 Old Wives' Tales About Church Growth 1. If You're Not [...]
