Church Planter to Church Planter
Church planting is hard work! Church planters evangelize, disciple, counsel, lead singing, facilitate Bible studies, clean bathrooms, prepare coffee, paint walls, pick up food, make community connections, work second jobs, and more. How great to talk about church planting with a brother who understands! A new season of an online church-planting cohort begins in February and will take place the second Thursday of each month. You can jump into the cohort at any time. Contact Scott Greening, firstname.lastname@example.org, to register.
R. T. Ketcham Lives On!
A large collection of message recordings from GARBC conferences has been given to the GARBC. Included are messages by R. T. Ketcham, Paul Jackson, Joseph Stowell, Ernest Pickering, John Balyo, and many others who were influencers of the association. The Resource Center staff desires to make these recordings available on our GARBC website. The collection of recordings is a treasured record of our association’s values and voice. The nearly 400 messages are an important account of fundamentalist thought that deserves to be preserved and made accessible to students of religious history.
The recordings are on fragile reel-to-reel tapes and need to be transferred to digital recordings. Accomplishing the goal of an online archive of conference messages will require funding. The project will cost about $15,000. Will you help fund this project to offer the archive free-of-charge to students and friends of theological fundamentalist preaching? You may mail your gift to the GARBC Resource Center or donate online. Please designate gifts with a note that says “Recordings.”
