YIB (Your Intrepid Blogger) is in Minneapolis this late-October weekend, and it was my delight this morning to sit down for several hours to enjoy scones, coffee, and conversation at Babettes in Uptown with George Stagg (pictured), who is seeking to plant a network of Grace Brethren churches in the Twin Cities area.
George and his wife, Anna, and their four children moved to the Twin Cities several months ago after some months of commuting from their home in Ames, Iowa, to conduct a Sunday-evening Bible study.
George has a large vision, and is working with Tim Boal of GBNAM and under the direction of GBNAM career missionary Ron Boehm to bring that dream of multiple congregations into reality. They are currently focusing on southwest Minneapolis, with particular attention to the Uptown and lakes communities.
Pray for George, that he will have wisdom in knowing how best to spend his time, where to find the resources needed, and good savvy in making contacts both in discipleship and evangelism. He and his group were rejoicing recently in the salvation of an individual who is involved in the management of several restaurants in the Twin Cities area.
I’d encourage all to pray for George and to communicate with him as you can, welcoming him into the FGBC family. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
