BCP Family Camp 114 BCP missionaries, administration, staff, councilmen and speakers converged on the campus of Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, IA, for Family Camp July 17-20.  It was a great time of relaxation and fellowship for all!  Here is what one missionary shared:  “We were truly refreshed and encouraged from being there.”

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 [...]

Please pray for our church, Adirondack Baptist Church, as we begin the process [...]

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, Issa and daughter, Rebecca - taken in August of 2016.

This church plant presently meets on Sunday afternoons in the facilities of an English-speaking church, Fairway Park Baptist Church in Hayward. [...]
