Dr. Rick and Jen Peace, along with their children, Mitchell, Christian, Spencer, and Alison are going to Ireland as church planting missionaries with ABWE and under the direction of their sending church, Calvary Baptist Church in Covington, KY. During an annual Missions conference at their church Rick and Jen submitted themselves to "whenever, wherever, whatever" God wanted them to do, and in 2005 they saw that God was calling them to carry out the great commission in Ireland.
Matthew and Crystal Herrell, along with Madeline, Kyle, Lauren and Tanner are preparing for the ministry they will have in Peru as they seek to reach the 7 million people who live in the capitol city of Peru, 96% of whom are blinded by Roman Catholicism. They are being sent by Chilhowie Baptist Church in Chilhowie, VA where Matthew served for 9 1/2 years as the Youth and Assistant pastor, and where his father is the Senior Pastor. Their desire is to be used of God to plant biblically sound churches, and to start Haven of Hope Children's Home to reach out to the 600,000 homeless children in the streets of Lima.
Mike and Kay Redman have been supported by Temple Baptist for the last decade as they "rescue" desperate and struggling churches by providing pastoral leadership, help and encouragement while the church works to call their next pastor. Their 17 previous years of pastoral ministry have well-equipped them for this important, but difficult task. They are sent by Calvary Baptist Church in Campbell, Missouri and are under the direction of Baptist Pioneer Mission.
One of the most exciting events of the year is our Annual Missions Conference when we turn our attention to our part in what God is doing in his global plan of evangelism. It is our duty, privilege, and desire to partner with God, and God's servants to accomplish the Great Commission praying, giving, and going to make disciples of all nations!
