The need for new churches is more critical today than ever. One of the challenges young churches face is finding suitable facilities to house their growing ministry. They are less able to do their own construction, building costs are prohibitive, and building codes are increasingly restrictive. There is great value in having help from experienced missionary work teams. The CBM Building Ministry was founded in the early 1960s to provide just such assistance. Berean Baptist Church was helped in 2009-10 to complete their new church home. Pray for Bill and Terri Jenkins, Bud and Shirley Norman, and Doris Bishop.
RBC Founder M. R. DeHaan was a physician who later in life became a pastor—well known for his gravelly voice and impassioned Bible teaching. His commitment to ministry was to lead people of all nations to personal faith and maturity in Christ. He began this ministry in his basement as a family operation, today the Lord has brought together a staff of over 300 Christian workers in the US headquarters. RBC today offers teaching resources to millions worldwide. Programs include TV and radio classes, Day of Discovery, Words to Live By, Our Daily Bread prayer guides and others.
