Jack Brown, director of Grow New England, the Charis Fellowship church-planting organization in the northeast region of the U.S., recently sent an update. A portion of it appears below.
God is at work in New England. And we are excited to be a part of what He is doing. The month of February has been a month of planning. We have been thinking a lot about discipleship and leadership training. We want to establish churches that make disciples that make disciples. In Danvers we had our second M-I-X outreach on February 27th. There were 11 in attendance and we had a robust conversation around the topic, “Integrity.” Please keep the fourth Tuesday of each month in prayer as we invite the community to be a part of these discussions.
In the month of March, we are looking forward to outreach opportunities leading up to Easter. On March 17th we will be handing out Easter bags on Maple Street in Danvers. And on March 24th we will be hold our second annual “Make Your Own Easter Baskets.” We are praying for 50 children from the community to join us. Please keep these events in prayer.
Prayer Items for 2018:
- We hope to add two men to our team in New England.
- One who will lead our Danvers’ congregation
- And a long-term church planting intern.
- Both men must be committed first and foremost to the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, the doctrinal position of Charis Fellowship (FGBC), and must be biblically qualified to serve as an elder. (Check out the listing for these two positions at charisfellowship.us.)
It is exciting to be a part of what God is doing in this region. I want to thank you for your partnership. I also want to ask you to prayerfully consider how you can be involved in the ministry of church planting in New England.
- We need prayer partners. Will you commit to pray with us for the advancement of the gospel in New England?
- We need financial partners. The opportunities are outpacing the giving. Will you consider giving financially to the advancement of the gospel in New England?
- We need laborers. Would you consider coming to serve in New England?
