David Gunn: RBP’s New Editorial Director of PublicationsGunn_Inline
Regular Baptist Press is proud to welcome David Gunn as its new editorial director of publications. His responsibilities include overseeing development for all non-curriculum products, including the Baptist Bulletin, books, Bible studies, and Vacation Bible School.

“For nearly a century the GARBC and its publishing arm, RBP, have played a vital role in equipping, strengthening, and mobilizing the Regular Baptist sector of American Christianity,” Gunn says. “I count it a blessing and an honor to participate in this great work that God has established for our good and His glory.”

Gunn comes to RBP with experience as an educator, as well as having served as minister of music and worship leader in previous churches. David has a BA in Bible and theology from Shasta Bible College, MDiv from Corban University School of Ministry, and ThM from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and is currently finishing work on a PhD in systematic theology from Baptist Bible Seminary. He was ordained to the gospel ministry by Grace Baptist Church, Redding, Calif., in 2011.

“David is a great addition to the staff,” says Alex Bauman, director of Regular Baptist Press. “His experience and education bring a fresh perspective to RBP while ensuring our commitment to produce Biblically sound materials.”

Big Savings for Your Church
How would your church like to save $6,777.55? That’s what Emmanuel Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio, did by taking advantage of a new group subscription rate for the Baptist Bulletin, providing complete access to the online version of the publication to every member of the church. The digital version, Bb Plus, mirrors the print edition, but has additional content available exclusively online.

BBplusLaunch-copy-Copy1“The Baptist Bulletin is our flagship publication” says David Gunn, managing editor of the Baptist Bulletin. “As an association of doctrinally like-minded churches, it is important that we are all aware of what is happening in our churches and staying current on issues that directly impact all of us. The Baptist Bulletin is ideal for communicating to everyone in the congregation, not just pastors and other ministry leaders.”

The group subscription makes this information available and affordable. Now is a great time to join the Baptist Bulletin team! Learn how to subscribe by viewing www.baptistbulletin.org or by contacting Lynne Goemaat, 847.585.0833.

Help Baptist Builders Club Get PreparedBBC-Disaster-Relief-Logo1-150x150

Do you have a plan for if your home or community is ever destroyed by a flood, earthquake, tornado, or other catastrophe? Where would you stay? Who would you call? Who would help you clean up?

You might struggle to answer these questions, especially since catastrophes occur without warning. One thing is certain: catastrophes will continue to happen. Baptist Builders Club is expanding its ministry to include Disaster Relief. This program assists churches that are using their facilities as shelters and staging areas to assist the hurting when a catastrophe occurs. Through their ministry of care and assistance, churches have opportunities to be shining lights for the gospel in their communities.

BBC–USA is raising money to fill a trailer with the needed supplies and materials to assist in times of catastrophe. BBC–USA needs your help immediately to fill a trailer so it can be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. Here are three ways you can help: become a member of BBC–USA, Pray, Give, or Go. For more information and a complete list of needed supplies, see BBC–USA Disaster Relief.
