Making Disciples Who Make Disciples
Planting Churches That Plant Churches

“My ambition has always been to preach the Good News where the name of Christ has never been heard,rather than where a church has already been started by someone else. I have been following the plan spoken of in the Scriptures, where it says,

 

“Those who have never been told about him will see,

and those who have never heard of him will understand.”

 
In fact, my visit to you has been delayed so long because I have been preaching in these places.”
 
Paul (Romans 15:20-22 NLT)

David

Bourgouin

David Bourgouin is a church planter in St. Jerome, Ontario with a church called Ecclesia.  He has been there 4 years and has seen steady progress.  There are many people unreached with the gospel so there are many opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the community with events like food distribution. David has been working hard to disciple and mobilize people to serve.  He has several needs: to finish their church building and an individual to be a community liaison.

Megan

Kinne

Megan Kinne grew up at Berean and now serves on a church planting team in Brazil through ABWE. A short-term mission trip to Brazil is what the Lord used to convince Megan of her call to missions. Meg teaches Sunday School and makes connections in the community. She also does some maintenance at the local retreat center. She will eventually land permanently at one of the nearby church plants hopefully in a youth outreach capacity.

Jon & Linnea

Ransom

Jon Ransom serves in Okinawa, Japan.  He spent 5 years in the Marines before he connected with a church plant in California, Pillar Church.  After planting a church in North Carolina, Pillar sent him to Japan where Jon pastors military personnel near a military base but is always looking to integrate local people. Jon preaches and leads small groups.  He is also a Navy chaplain.  His largest hurdle is losing most of his leaders every 2 years when military personnel rotate out of that area.  They are currently in negotiations to buy a building that is strategically located for their ministry.

He has a passion for reaching the Punjabi people and was recently serving in California at a church where they had an outreach to the Punjabis.
