NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE SEARCH
The Council of Eighteen is seeking your input as they search for the next GARBC national representative. Informational letters regarding the search are on their way to every church in the association. If you have not already done so, please check out the National Representative Search website, where you will find announcement letters, the GARBC National Representative Ministry Profile, national representative survey/comment and recommendation forms, information updates, and the search committee personnel. The search committee will be receiving recommendations of candidates for the national representative office through Oct. 1.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR CHURCH PLANTS
The momentum for church planting continues to build. Two new church plants have already submitted grant applications to Regular Baptist Builders Club for this fall. Both churches are requesting help as they gear up to reach people with the gospel in their cities. We are anticipating at least two more applications in the next 30 days. Applications for fall funding must be submitted prior to Sept. 1.
If you are starting a church or considering planting a church, please contact us to see how we can provide funds and resources for your ministry. Regular Baptist Builders Club provides an opportunity for new church plants to receive up to $30,000 over three years. The Regular Baptist Builders Club board determines the approval of all funding. In addition, Regular Baptist Ministries offers resources and services such as Bible study curriculum, VBS material, website design, and community mailers. Learn more or contact Clare Jewell of Regular Baptist Builders Club and Regular Baptist Church Planting. He looks forward to hearing from you!
GEARING UP FOR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERNSHIP CONFERENCE
Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, and his wife, Deb, are preparing for the All-Partners Conference to be held in Manila, Philippines, Nov. 6–10. Every four years the international partnership hosts this conference for pastors and ministry leaders around the world. The Hindals are looking for sponsors to help pastors pay for their registration. Your donation of $150 will enable a national pastor to attend the conference. Can you make that happen? Donate online, by phone, or by mail. For online or check donations, note “Fund #9002.” By sponsoring a pastor, you will not only encourage him in his work, but also help build up fundamental Baptist churches around the world. For further information, contact Chris Hindal.
