This week there are some exciting stories for you to read in the Biblical Recorder and on BRnow.org. Seth Brown, content editor for the Recorder, has written two stories that draw attention to the urgency of reaching people with the gospel. Take time to read how God is using Josh Benfield and Lawrence Yoo to reach internationals in their communities around the Research Triangle. You can apply the same principles to reaching your community.
Seth’s other story highlights two stops of the SEND tour in North Carolina last week. Both events drew large crowds in Winston-Salem and Wake Forest. Both events were enthusiastically received, also. Keynote speaker David Platt called for radical disciples to change the world.
Since our churches are in the middle of the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions, we included another great story about how this offering is being used to reach our continent with the gospel. Read how the Lasheys ended up in Delaware, and how they are making a gospel impact through their church plant.
Finally, read Joel Rainey’s guest column. You’ve probably heard about prosperity evangelist Creflo Dollar’s appeal for $65 million to buy a new airplane. Rainey raises some honest concerns about integrity – not only in Creflo’s ministry, but in our ministries, also.
Thank you for depending on the Biblical Recorder as your source for news and information with a Christian worldview.
