Paul and Janet Robinson – Pennsauken, NJ

Greetings from New Jersey! Please allow me to share with you some of the things that the Lord has been doing in our ministry during the past year! After twenty-three years of meeting in a converted 3-bedroom row-house in the City of Camden, one of the poorest cities in the nation, on January 7, 2018, we were able to relocate to the Township of Pennsauken by renting four rooms at a Lutheran Church. We presently conduct our Sunday morning service in their fellowship-hall while our nursery children, primaries and teens meet in three additional rooms. In Camden, we have ministered the gospel to hundreds of families, and have seen many [...]

Brent and Michele Howard – missionary builders

Brent and Michele began in the ministry of building churches – building lives in 2007 under Baptist Missionary Builders.  They received much informal guidance from the leadership at BCP as they were getting started as missionaries and were thrilled when in 2010 BMB merged with BCP to form ChurchCare Construction. During their 11+ years of serving in this ministry, they had been privileged to work alongside their coworkers, Ron and Sandy Cornell.  Other missionaries have come and gone during that time, but the Cornells have ministered with us right along.  Together they have contributed to 30+ projects in various forms ranging from complete new buildings up to 20,000 sq. ft. [...]

Orlando and Debbie Collazo – Lorain, OH

The Lord has been doing many different things at Fellowship Baptist Church in Lorain, Ohio.  We have had the opportunity to reach out to our community in diverse ways.  One way is through our “open gym” nights where approximately 15-20 local teens and college students come, play basketball, and listen to the teaching of the Word and the Gospel.  We have so far had 3 individuals entrust their lives to God through this ministry.  Please keep praying for the many that come and hear about Christ but have not yet entrusted their lives to Jesus our Lord. Another community outreach has been visiting the local shelter and taking food and [...]

Sheryl Ridley has retired after 32 years of very active church planting ministry.  Sheryl joined BCP in 1991 with husband, Roger, after twelve years in the pastorate in Grand Island, NE.

Wayne and Shanna Dale – Scottsdale, AZ

The people at Grace Baptist Church have faced some great challenges, but they also have seen God work in greater ways.  In 2015 they were without a pastor, meeting in a building that held 60 people, and were down to about 12 members.  Yet God was not finished with them.  Through past discussions with a real estate agent, and the help of deacon Michael Ronning, the group engaged in a transaction of faith and sold their present building and property to a developer, and moved 4 miles to a new church property that seated over 200.  This new property included over 11,000 sf with 2 buildings.  The prior church people [...]

Carlos and Issa Vasquez – Hayward, CA

Carlos, Issa and daughter, Rebecca - taken in August of 2016. According to recent statistics, over 56 million Hispanics live in the U.S. That’s more than the entire population of Central America (that’s 7 countries.) In fact, the Hispanic population surpassed the Anglo population in California in 2014. It’s undeniable – the mission field has certainly come to America! One part of that vast mission field is in Hayward, CA where BCP missionaries, Carlos and Issa Vasquez, serve in the ministry of Iglesia Bíblica la Roca – Bautista Independiente. This church plant presently meets on Sunday afternoons in the facilities of an English-speaking church, Fairway Park Baptist Church in Hayward. [...]
