Dear Friend, This is a very important letter for our ministry. Within a couple of days, if not already, you will receive a brochure for our “Reaping the Harvest” offering for 2009. This offering is to replenish our Seed Bank for the coming year. The Seed Bank is completely empty, and we are using funds from the General Fund to...

Dear Friend, Please forgive me for not getting this letter out closer to the first of the month. It has been one of the busiest months of the ministry. There have been three churches and a grandson born, plus two mission conferences, and teaching at Ambassador Baptist College. Beth and I left home on September 2nd and did not return...

Dear Friend, Multiple births are always a great blessing and not one of the triplets are weak or anemic. In September, we witnessed the births of two churches in the U.S. during the same week. One was in Edinburgh, IN, and one in Glastonbury, CT. Both are healthy and strong. I had the honor of being...

Children must be a part of the church today if there is any hope for their involvement with the church of tomorrow. As a parent of seven, I have often found myself downplaying the...

Sadly many parts of North America remain unevangelized. Hundreds of thousands of people are not reached because churches are not reproducing churches in these areas. Where are these areas that need these good fundamental Baptist churches? They are within minutes of our good fundamental Baptist churches. As I travel this continent and speak on church planting, I mention the need of...

Dear Friend, Fifteen years ago, on August 1, 1993, Baptist Church Planting Ministry came into existence. After praying for six months and talking with several pastors, Beth and I decided the Lord wanted us to begin a ministry helping churches reproduce churches. We had no idea where this adventure would lead us and we certainly didn’t know the Lord would...
