It is often new church plants like Gather Steveston that are able to go into previously unreached corners of our communities, large or small – to people previously uninterested in hearing about Jesus – and spark the kind of disciple-making that Jesus trained His disciples toward. Even as much of the world has slowed down due to the current global pandemic, God continues to be on the move in and through church planters like Darren and Crista Lof, just one couple in a whole wave of new NAB church planters in the last few years.
For one woman, her relationship with the Lofs for the past seventeen years has been transformational. Even her longtime friends have noticed a change. She was recently baptized at a beach; part of her reason for wanting to be baptized was to be able to tell people how her life has changed and encourage them to listen to and look toward Jesus. As Darren describes it, her process of discipleship toward conversion is now becoming a discipleship to fruitfulness. Much of the funding allowing the NAB to stand alongside and supports church planters like the Lofs comes from the Ministry Resource Fund. When you give $50, $100, $500, or more, you making a significant difference in discipleship efforts in the US and Canada, as well as around the world.
Consider asking your church to partner with us in these ministry efforts. Here are some ideas for getting involved:
- Give a personal gift today and encourage your family and friends to do the same.
- Distribute the materials below at Sunday service or weekly Bible studies, classes, or groups.
