(BP) – A diverse class of more than 200 church planters representing seven languages, 30 U.S. states and five Canadian provinces attended Send Network Orientation Nov. 6-8 at the North American Mission Board (NAMB).

MONTREAL (BP) -- Numbers don’t do justice in describing the last two years for Kevin and Casey Kilgore and their family, but it’s a start. In just a little more than 24 months, the Kilgores have surpassed 70,000 miles traveled in their RV. They’ve visited and encouraged 265 pastors and missionaries. They’ve been to 48 out of 50 U.S. states.
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (BP) – If you’re looking for a Southern Baptist church, you’re most likely to find one in the South. If you want to find a growing Southern Baptist church, however, you might want to try the Northeast.
GUTTENBERG, Iowa (BP) — Rita Klink doesn’t consider herself a leader. Regardless, she is someone who said “yes.”
SALISBURY, Md. (BP) – Send Network’s new podcast, “Terminal: The Dying Church Planter,” is more than just a story about a guy with cancer, said producer Tony Hudson. It’s a story about one man’s monsters, metamorphosis, church planting ministry and church members. Most of all, it’s the story of God’s kindness through it all and His ability to work all things together for good.
CLEVELAND, Ohio (BP) – It may seem strange for a church plant to purchase a property which was formerly a strip club, but pastor Josh Miller said Cove City Church’s new renovation project fits right along with their mission of bringing light to a dark place.
PUEBLO, Colo. (BP) — Necessary changes and new resources have become part of the refining process to new leaders at the associational level.
PORTLAND, Maine (BP) – Known for lobsters, cobblestone streets and an iconic lighthouse, Portland is not generally considered a hub for immigrants. But according to the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition, America’s “Vacationland” of Maine is home to 87,200 immigrants and refugees, including asylum seekers and undocumented people of all ages – some 24,000 of whom live in metro Portland.
