Dr. Earl Jessup – September 2014

I have put off writing this letter until I had more information about all the tests and bladder surgery this past week. I just returned from a visit with the oncologist at the hospital with as much information as I will be getting. The CT Scan shows no new tumors in the lungs, but the three tumors already there have increased in size. In the past six months, the largest one has doubled to 1.7 CM X 2.2 CM. The others are smaller. The pancreatic tumor has increased to 3 CM from 2 CM. T…

Jeremy Rowland – August 2014

On August 1st BCPM celebrated its twenty-first anniversary.

What a thrill to look back and see what God has done through a desire to see churches reproduce churches. BCPM has now helped 147 churches start in over nine different countries. That is an average of one church plant every 1.7 months since BCPM started and we are looking forward to see what God will do in the years ahead if the Lord tarries. We have advised to put off the two church plants scheduled for this fall and hav…

Dr. Earl Jessup – August 2014

Our ministry typically slows down during the summer and this year has been no different. We have used this time to get some rest, spend time with our families and get ready for the fall meetings.

This fall is certainly not typical for us. We do not have a single church plant scheduled for this fall. The ones we have been working on have been pushed to the spring. We would rather postpone the church plant than go ahead and not have everything ready with the project. Please pray for t…

Dr. Earl Jessup – July 2014

My wife and I have decided it is time to relocate near one of our children. We began praying about this several months ago, and the Lord has directed in our lives in this decision. Soon after beginning to pray, I asked the Lord to show me something from the Scripture that would lead us in the right direction. That morning I was reading from Leviticus 21 to 27, and having read through Leviticus many times, I was not expecting too much. I came to Leviticus 25:10 and read, “And ye sha…

Clarence Moore – June – July 2014

The summer is well under way and the ministry opportunities continue to stream in. We have spent a good deal of the last two months in Ajax, ON helping the Michel missionary family prepare a basement apartment. This will allow Mrs. Michel’s parents to move in to assist with her family’s transition after loosing her husband Joel to a vehicle accident shortly after they moved to minister in the Netherlands. She has three children under five. Please pray for this family as they continue to…

Dr. Earl Jessup – June 2014

This has been the busiest spring church planting season ever for BCPM! God allowed our ministry to be involved in eight new church plants in fifteen weeks. We want to thank those of you who diligently prayed for each of these plants. The Lord blessed in wonderful ways. The average attendance on the Grand Opening Sunday was thirty-five in the services. Two plants had over sixty in attendance. Souls were saved, lives changed and communities were reached with the Gospel. Over 135,000…

Dr. Earl Jessup – May 2014

Please forgive me for not getting a monthly letter written in April. It was a very difficult month for us. I began taking a chemical compound called DCA to help with the fight of the cancer. I took two IVs before leaving for meetings, and I took several doses in pill form after leaving. There are significant side effects to taking DCA, and I was taking supplements to offset those. After most of the meetings, I began to experience what we thought to be some side effects to the DCA. W…

Clarence Moore – Mar – Apr 2014

Spring is officially here. Gen 8:22 promises that there will always be seasons so it will eventually warm up and summer will arrive.
Spring is always a great time for new growth. This is also a great opportunity for new church plants. This spring BCPM has already had the privilege of assisting in brand new works in Starkville, MS, Madera, CA, Phoenix, AZ and Bellville, OH, which is currently under way. The LORD has blessed in all these works. I mentioned helping find a building in…

Jeremy Rowland – January 2013

I appreciate all those who have been praying for the numerous church plants. God has blessed in each of the three so far this year. Two most recent church plants have taken place in Starkville, MS and Phoenix, AZ. Shining Light Baptist Church of Starkville held its Get Acquainted Meetings February 9-13 with several visitors from the community attending. On the first Sunday there were 34 people attending the morning service and 26 attending in the evening.  The reproducing church was…

Dr. Earl Jessup – March 2014

Last Wednesday, March 5, I had a full body CT scan and have been waiting to fully read the report before sending this letter. I finally decided to go ahead and get this letter out since it is nearly the middle of the month. However, I do have some information on the CT. The day following the scan, I was back at the hospital for a pacemaker check and met my urologist in the hallway. I mentioned to him that it was done and he said, “Let’s see if it has been studied.” We went to a computer…
