The Heartland Ministerium of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches met on January 19, 2010, at New Horizons Community Church in Winona Lake Ind. Tony Webb and Ron Boehm of Vision Ohio made a presentation of their work starting churches in Ohio. Several Heartland pastors discussed the possibility of beginning new Grace Brethren churches in cities such as Fort Wayne and Lafayette Ind.
Jim Franklin (pictured), pastor of Flora (IN) Grace Brethren Church, agreed to take the lead in re-establishing a church-planting momentum through Vision for Mid-America.
Franklin will communicate with anyone interested through the Facebook group “Vision for Mid-America” and by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
