We have so much to accomplish in 2017 and are excited to watch God work in planting new churches in needy communities.
Listed below are the first three that will take place this spring. We are also working on at least four more for the fall and several already for 2018. Please pray for the planning, preparations, and for the power of God to be upon these plants.

Along with our involvement in the church plants, our staff will be busy traveling to strengthen the young church plants, raise additional support, and promote the need for church planting. This year we will also hold "Church Plant Focus Meetings" in different regions of the country. At these meetings we will cover the philosophy and plan of church planting to help churches focus on needy cities. These meetings are designed to help prepare pastors with the tools to reproduce more churches. Specific times and locations will be announced in the next few weeks.
2017 is a milestone for BCPM. On August 1st, BCPM will inter into its 25th year. We are so thankful for how the Lord has blessed this ministry and are eager for what He has in store for the next 25 years. We will have special 25th anniversary services at the conclusion of that year on August 1, 2018. Look for special announcements, plans, and invitations as we praise the Lord for His blessing on BCPM.
Thank you for your prayer and financial investment in BCPM! The Lord is using you to make a difference as we partner in helping churches reproduce churches.
