GBNAM Northeast Career Missionary Jim Snavely sends along this photo and brief report on a recent church planter workshop held in his region:
The Northeast has a wonderful team of dear people planting churches, or for some, considering church planting. GBNAM Northeast hosted a three day church-planter workshop, August 21-23, at Carlisle, PA.
It was learning and growing experience for those who could attend. Dr. Tim Boal, GBNAM Executive Director; Kurt Miller, National Director of Church Planting; and Jim Snavely, Regional Career Missionary, each led a specific workshop.
Keith & Shelly Bowers (Chambersburg, PA church planters) facilitated a “heart to heart” interactive discussion in both men’s and ladies’ groups. Kevin Mincey (church planter, Washington D.C.) lifted all hearts heavenward with two solo mini-concerts.
The workshop provided a vital opportunity for much-needed fellowship, networking ministry and personal relationships and common bonding because of similar ministry experience. The greatest resource of help for the church planter is other church planters. Worship and prayer touched the inner soul of all participants.(photo courtesy Jim Snavely and Kathleen Allison)
