The Grace Brethren church-planting initiative in Canada has formed a new U.S. charity, GBCanada USA. The existing Canadian board and new U.S. board will work together to plant Grace Brethren churches across Canada.
Members of the new board include Kurt A. Miller, lead pastor at Martinsburg, Pa., Grace Brethren Church; Dave Clearwater, who has attended the Waldorf, Md., Grace Brethren Church since it began 22 years ago; Ricky Goad, an 18-year member of the Waldorf church; and David Gummere, building and grounds superintendent at the Waldorf church. Gummere’s wife, Helene, owns an insurance agency and is the new board’s U.S. administrator.
“We’re so fortunate to have such dedicated people with varied ministry experience on our new team,” said Nathan Bryant, executive director. As a faith-based ministry, GBCanada is totally funded through charitable gifts of which 95 percent come from U.S. churches and individual supporters.
All U.S. supporters of GBCanada can now send their tax-deductible financial support directly to GBCanada USA, P.O. Box 836, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622.
