"It seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus." Luke 1:3a
If, like Theophilus, you would like regular (monthly?) updates of our church planting process, please fill out and submit this form. We guarantee it will be shorter than Luke's work!
“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” Phil 1:3–5
All our donations are adminstered and overseen by Bethlehem Baptist Church. Bethlehem Baptist Church is a 501c.3 organization and will send an annual statement to donors who contribute $50 or more in gifts for the year. To give either a one time or recurring gift, please follow these directions:
"Jesus said to them again, 'Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." John 20:21
Four years ago we had submitted our application to Bethlehem College & Seminary and were waiting to hear back from their admissions board. Who could have imagined from that day to now all the new friends and neighbors, papers and books, trials and joys we would have experienced. Amidst it all, God continues to prove himself a good and loving Father who has taken care of us in amazing ways—not least of which was through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, starting on January 1, 2017, Ryan will be the Pastoral Resident for Church Planting at Bethlehem Baptist Church. In conjunction with our friends, pastors, and YOU, through constant prayer and wisdom, we will begin the process of idenitifying the place, the plan, and the team for a church plant. We are excited for all the ways we will be challanged and able to trust God along the way. We are also humbled. Our Lord came into the world with nothing, and he left with nothing. He was not revered, but despised and shamed. May we be strengthened by God to declare the mighty name of Jesus and the salvation he brings to all who believe in him! He is the long awaited Messiah, the suffering servant, the Son of God.
Thank you for the part you will take in this process, and may God use it to show you more of the wonderous ways he is at work in our world today!
