November 2021 Bb Pulse: Power and Authority of Jesus Christ

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High” (Psalm 92:1).

During this month of Thanksgiving, I give heartfelt thanks to God for the churches that have experienced His blessings and are now intentionally encouraging and blessing other churches in disciple-making ministries. There’s a good chance that your church exists today because another church was burdened either to plant your church or to offer encouragement as your church went through difficult times.

My heart also rejoices that more and more pastors are reaching out for help in the areas of church revitalization and pastoral soul care. The GARBC is well positioned to help in these areas. When communities have vibrant Biblical churches, more people are reached, helped, encouraged, uplifted, and drawn to Christlikeness—and ministry opportunities abound. That’s why our passion is to see more churches revitalized and more churches planted.

God has also graciously given me a couple of opportunities to meet online with pastors who have been only minimally involved in our fellowship. I absolutely love fellowshipping with pastors. We share a kindred spirit, and when I tell them what God is doing in the GARBC, most walk away encouraged. If you’d like to be part of one of these meetings, please reach out to Kerry Watkins, director of church engagement, at

Just as a Christian is never better off going it alone, churches are always better off locking arms with other doctrinally aligned churches to make disciples for the glory of God. My prayer is that you would consider how your church can be involved in helping struggling churches. You might even help a church near you with revitalization. Generate, the revitalization and church planting arm of the GARBC, stands ready to help your church be a blessing to struggling churches.
