Church Planting Around the World
January 06, 2015
One of the exciting things about sharing Christ globally is seeing the Lord plant churches. Recently I received an exciting email from Emmanuel Dzokoto, the business administrator of our partner church, Trinity Baptist, in Accra, Ghana. He wrote letting us know that Trinity was opening a second satellite campus in Kutunse, a region about 40 minutes from the center of Accra.
This new church plant will be the second church start since Parkway has partnered with Trinity Baptist. The first, started in 2012, is about an hour outside of Accra in the area known as Kosoa. The Kasoa church plant also supports a Christian school.
With these new churches many more Ghanaians are hearing the Word of God. TBC has a mission to reach the Muslim people. These churches are strategically located in areas where there is a large Muslim influence. They are providing an open door for people from all walks of life to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
These churches have received funding through your Acts 1:8 giving. People in these areas are hearing of our savior’s love because God laid it on the hearts of the members of Parkway Baptist to join with Trinity Baptist in their outreach to the Hausa people.
We are committed to helping church plants with resources and people. The Bridge Fellowship in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and Confluence Church in St. Louis are two examples of how your Acts 1:8 giving has gone to help churches planted all over the world.
