Sean Pierce, Associational Director of Missions at the Hudson Baptist Association in Up State New York says some pastors move South for seminary training and end up staying South.

Others are called back here to plant churches in the Hudson Valley. That’s Brad Guenther.

After a season at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC, and with little thought of coming to Albany, that is exactly what happened. Immanuel Church in East Greenbush, NY is living proof.

Now, as that church plant looks toward it’s 10th anniversary, Guenther is Talking Albany.

Perhaps the Lord is stirring your heart to get involved personally, or to lead your MBC Church or Association in Partnering in the MBC / Hudson Baptist Association Partnership. If so, then Brad Guenther and Albany, NY is well worth your prayerful consideration.

The HIS (Heartland Interstate Strategy) emerged as State Executive Directors from Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and Iowa began to dream about how we could advance the gospel to the west and in the far north, to the east and west. The dream became a vision to plant churches all along the Heartland Interstate. These churches would be strengthened so that they then would advance both east and west to be a sending center in the United States to get the Gospel to an area in great need.

Currently there is a team with representatives from all of the above mentioned State Conventions meeting, praying, dreaming and strategizing to place dots on a map of major cities. Each dot represents the need for a new church to be planted. Only as we work together will we see this dream realized. It is called cooperation. You can be an integral part in seeing this vision come to fruition. You can pray, give, send and go as individuals and churches. In the words of Dr. John Yeats, “We can do this!” Let’s do it together!

Darkness Turned to Light

“You are the light of the world; a city set on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matthew 5).  One believer within a family of generational lostness does have the potential to alter the future of the entire family network. The setting was somewhat remote, a simple lean-to style building, no windows, and no doors – open air.  […]
