Rev. Jeremy Rowland-August 2011
Much of the last few weeks have been spent helping to prepare for the five church plants this fall. Prayer and preparation has gone into these plants and we are asking God to bless in a great way. Over the next few months more than 109,000 Gospel of John and Romans booklets will be distributed throughout the new areas. Pray for the evangelizing, advertizing, and mobilizing that needs to take place. Here are the church plants with the dates of their Get Acquainted Meetings.
September 11-15 – Warrenton, MO
September 11-15 – Belleville, Ontario Canada
September 18-21 – Waconia, MN
September 25-29 – Athens, OH
October 16-20 – Lady Smith, VA
I have also been able to preach and teach on church planting in several churches. It is always a thrill to see churches catch the burden to reproduce more churches. It was a privilege to spend time helping Pastor Terry Moore of Capital Baptist Church in Dover, DE. He and the church have a desire to plant a church in Easton, MD. They have already been evangelizing Easton and have had several saved and many prospects. I also had a great Sunday at Berean Baptist Church in White House, TN. Pastor Joe Lang and the church have started to make preparations to birth their first church in the next few years.
