REGULAR BAPTIST CHURCHES: NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE MIKE HESS
Educational institutions play a crucial role in preparing students for a lifetime of service for Christ. This past month, my wife, Christina, and I traveled to two universities in our network to learn more about their institutions and to further our mutual friendship. Read about the trips in the following articles:

REGULAR BAPTIST CHURCH PLANTING: COORDINATOR CLARE JEWELL

  • Recently I spoke at Involve Church in Nampa, Idaho. This church is one of our initial hub churches and is hosting a resident to train this fall. This situation will likely involve our initial Train Up grant!
  • I met with leadership of South Holly Baptist Church, South Holly, Colorado, to discuss revitalization opportunities and possible assistance from another church in the area.
  • I am looking forward to speaking at the Minnesota Association of Regular Baptist Churches conference at Grace Baptist Church, Mankato, Minnesota.
  • Several grant applications are already in for Baptist Builders Club’s church planting, revitalization, facility improvement, and residency programs. God is working!

REGULAR BAPTIST INTERNATIONAL: DIRECTOR CHRIS HINDAL

My wife, Deb, and I recently returned from an enjoyable and profitable trip to the Philippines. Campus Bible Fellowship of the Philippines sponsors a Renown Conference for college students.  The name of the conference comes from the theme “Raising a Generation Who Are Passionate about God’s Global Renown.” This year the conference expanded to be international and attracted students and leaders from seven countries outside the Philippines. Nineteen of the 260 conferees were internationals. I spoke three times to this group of “world-changers” and was especially encouraged by a Muslim girl who is seeking truth.

Later in September we will begin ministering in six East African countries with seven partnering associations. We greatly appreciate your prayers, as this will be a challenging three-week trip. I am expecting to conduct one- or two-day conferences in each place. I am thankful for faithful travel partners who give for this purpose so that I can train pastors and church leaders around the globe. If you would like to assist, you can donate online, selecting “International–Travel.”  Thank you especially for your prayers.

REGULAR BAPTIST CHAPLAINCY: MANNING BROWN

In June, my wife, Jennifer, and I began our summer travels with a visit to Ch. (Lt Col) Rick Steen and his wife, Kim, at McGhee-Tyson Air National Guard Base in Knoxville, Tennessee, followed by a trip to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to meet with Ch. (COL) Jack Stumme and his wife, Cindy. From Fort Bragg we traveled to Hagerstown, Maryland, to visit Ch. (Maj) Ron Faith and his wife, Sarah, at Martinsville Air National Guard Base, West Virginia. From Maryland, we drove to Lapeer, Michigan, to meet with Michigan State Police Chaplain David Hill and his wife, Mary Jo. In July, we traveled to Germany to meet with Ch. (Col) David Carr and his wife, Stephanie. David is the command chaplain for US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany. Summer travel wrapped up with a visit to Ch. (Capt) Scott Conner and his wife, Leah, in Cadillac, Michigan. Scott is a chaplain assigned to Patrick Air Force Base in Florida. It was an amazing summer! Jennifer and I count it a blessing to be able to visit our chaplains and to see firsthand the impact of their ministry.
