SERVE ON-MISSION IN NEW ENGLAND

God is working in New England in amazing ways, but humanly speaking, the needs are greater than our resources. If you feel led to pursue a short- or long-term partnership to share the Gospel in New England, please consider some of our top-priority needs for 2017.

If your church has a particular skill or a desired date or location that does not match any of our posted needs, we would be glad to investigate other ways your vision may fit with the strategy of a BCNE church. Use the red button to request a custom placement.

For more information, contact Tim Buehner at 508-393-6013 ext. 222. Teams traveling to New England for the first time are encouraged to look through our resources and tools for mission teams.

#3-17/18 Partnership, Hartford CT ~ Church Plant

Living Faith Church wants to worship in a facility in
which it can generate earned income to sustain the
ministry. Although donations from weekly visitors and
members are accepted, the socioeconomic climate of the neighborhoods where the church plant is located suggest earned income and donations from non-local partners will be necessary for sustaining ministry activities.
With that in mind, they would like to purchase and rehab a
multifamily building with ample meeting space in the lower level
for weekly gatherings, fellowship and community activity. The
residential portion of the building will be rented to cover operating
costs of running the building, pastoral support and other church
expenses. They could use mission teams to assist with VBS and
other evangelistic events as well.
