We have two new churches starting in 2007. One will be planted by Chad Cummings, who is currently the Associate Pastor at First Baptist Winthrop Harbor in Chicago. Chad will be coming to the field starting his official day on February 1, 2007. Please be in prayer for Chad to sell his home and for the start of Three Rivers Fellowship Church in Lacrosse.
The second church will be started by Paul Fries who is coming from Graceville, Florida. Paul is currently serving as the Director of Missions for the Holmes County Baptist Association in Florida. Paul, a native of Richland County, is coming back home to plant a church in Richland Center which he will call Heartland Church.
There are three ways you can be a partner with these two church planters:
1. Prayer – Be in prayer for them ast they move. They both need to sell their homes. Also, be in prayer for them as move and begin to build core groups.
2. People – Bring a misison team for your church or consider volunteering to help them.
3. Provisions – Help contribute to their church plant financially. Both of these men and their families have stepped out in faith God will provide.
If you would like to be a partner in any way please contact me, Mark Millman, in the Central Association office at 608-825-9946 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
