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.
