AMHERST, Ohio—John Greening, national representative for the GARBC, has met with fifty-five pastors to kick-off a year of study on intentional ministry. The Hebron Association of Regular Baptist Churches is a group of 30 churches in north central Ohio.

Challenging the guests about biblical, intentional ministry in today’s world, Greening emphasized that every church benefits by having a Bible-based plan to move learners toward spiritual maturity. “The church of Jesus Christ is built by the intentional teaching of God’s Word,” said Greening.

The meetings offered a healthy blend of good information as well as great inspiration to the fellowship over the coming year. The Hebron Fellowship is asking God to help our churches become increasingly effective in intentionally building lives toward spiritual maturity in the year ahead.
