It is time to embrace the future by moving forward in faith. We envision a future in which instead of being perpetually understaffed and underfunded, the BCNE has an adequate leadership team to serve the needs of our member churches in the areas of church health, ministry to high school and college students, and leadership training.
We must have an army of prayer warriors praying for revival. You can pray more effectively by praying for requests listed on our Instagram prayer network or our prayer page and by signing up for our monthly newsletter, The New England Baptist Connection. We must train and encourage individual Christians to share their faith regularly through personal evangelism.
We also need your financial assistance. There are two significant financial hurdles we need to overcome. First, we have an outstanding loan that is siphoning funds away from ministry. Second, we lack adequate ongoing funding for key initiatives important for our future.
We are asking God to move both churches and individuals to give a special gift of any amount during 2016 to our Embracing the Future strategy. Those that are able to give $1,200 or more can designate a portion of their gift to one of five key initiatives that we have identified as our greatest need. This can be given in one lump sum or with a monthly pledge that will be completed by the end of 2016.
May God bless you and the work in New England,
Dr. Terry Dorsett, executive director, BCNE
