This month we will be celebrating a Week of Prayer for Associational Missions May 21-28.
Our goal is $25,000. We have already had anonymous ministry partners step up and have offered up to $10,000 in a matching gift for this offering! The offering will be used 100% for Church Planting in the NKBA!
We have church plants under way in:
- Dry Ridge (at Mercy Ridge Community Church with Pastor Josh Hildebrand),
- Fort Mitchell (with Pastor Van of the Zion Chin Baptist Church/Burmese),
- Florence (with Pastor Joshua Kim at Good Shepherd Church meeting at Florence Baptist’s Greenview Campus),
- Erlanger and Covington (with Pavel Urruchi at Erlanger Baptist and South Side Baptist Churches),
- Walton (Bill Page at Crosspoint Church),
- Covington, Redemption Church (Pastor Ben Brown) which meets at Ashland Avenue Church and will be adding services and ministry in the fall at what was the Oakland Avenue Baptist Church.
We have another ministry partner, Mike Rowe at The Avenue/Cornerstone Community Church in Covington who packs out two services at a storefront each Sunday morning! People are coming to Christ on a regular basis through this ministry! Mike has spent 20 years serving there and is from Erlanger Baptist Church. I’m writing this after just left a meeting with leaders who will begin hosting a Chinese Bible Study every Tuesday night at the NKBA office and a Chinese School which will meet at our site on Saturdays (where Bible and Chinese culture/language are taught to children all born here in America) beginning in May! We need additional funding to help these new works and partners to grow and become stronger!
SO, the first thing to do is PRAY! “You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed!” A guide for the week of prayer is available by insert on the NKBA website (www.nkba.org) or by request to our office.
Offering envelopes will be available and mailed to you upon request, you can also give ONLINE on the NKBA website…a video link will be available next week to promote this emphasis with your church at services, on your Facebook page, and on your church website!
God is at work and moving in NKY! The NKBA needs your support to see this good work continued as we continue to assist new work get started in our Jerusalem! It is a joy to serve as your missionary!
