Monthly Letters

Dear Pastor, This past Thursday I met with the radiation oncologist in Toronto. After looking at the CT Scan, he indicated that my situation remains stable and that they do not believe the mass inside my lung is cancer. They felt that if it were cancer, then it would be growing rather than reducing in size. They believe it is the...

Dear Pastor, I waited to write our monthly letter until I received the report from my August 1st CT Scan. Yesterday, I went to the hospital to pick it up and only received a CD disk rather than the written report I usually receive. I asked the receptionist about it, but she said that everything was on the disk. After returning...

Dear Pastor, As we approach the middle of the summer, I want to give you just a quick update on our ministry. I know that many people are away on vacation and other activities, like camp and VBT, are taking much time to plan and implement. The Lord is continuing to bless our ministry and over the past few weeks, we have...

Dear Pastor, Our spring church plants are completed with four new churches birthed and now reaching communities for Christ. We praise the Lord for the opportunity to help with these new churches. Please pray for them as they enter their first “summer slump.” Many times, the first summer for a new church is a difficult time. During the first week of May,...

Dear Pastor, Psalm 133:1 says, “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Over the years, I have seen the Lord do some wonderful things because of churches working together in unity to reproduce a new church. This month is another example of this wonderful verse of Scripture. In Cranberry, PA, thirteen churches attended...

Dear Pastor, Please forgive me for the tardiness of this letter. I usually try to get it out by the first of the month, but it was delayed by a church plant and several medical appointments. We had a wonderful meeting in Orangeville, Ontario. The Lord blessed the meetings, and I was happy to be in the pulpit again preaching the Get-Acquainted...

October 16, 2012 Dear Pastor and Church Family, It has been a busy church planting season!! The birth of the very first Baptist church in Markham, Ontario, took place the end of September. Pastors Brian Johnson and Pastor Scott Polhamus report that the reception of Hope Baptist Church by those who visited the Get-Acquainted Meetings was very positive. We praise the Lord...

September 3, 2012 Dear Pastor and Church Family, As Baptist Church Planting Ministry enters the fall planting season, things are all in order and moving smoothly for the next five births. Pastor Josh Irmler and the church family of Ambassador Baptist Church are preparing for Pastor Mark Irmler to birth the Crown Point Baptist church in Simi Valley, CA. Many hours a day...

August 6, 2012 Dear Pastor and Church Family, Baptist Church Planting Ministry has now entered its 20th year of ministry. God has been so gracious to allow us the honor of assisting so many churches. As we move through the summer months, I have the joy of hearing from pastors of many of the young churches. I am able to rejoice with them...

July 5, 2012 Dear Pastor and Church Family, We are now starting the last half of 2012.  We praise the Lord for the churches planted in the first half and to hear reports of how God is blessing each one.   As we anticipate the fall plants, we are also approaching the 20th year of BCPM. We are expecting a record year...
