On Wednesday evening of the GARBC Conference, National Church Planting Coordinator Clare Jewell enthusiastically introduced the Genesis initiative to conferees. The goal of the initiative is to plant 100 new Regular Baptist churches by 2025.
“God declares that He has a passion for multiplication,” Jewell said. “That’s why the GARBC is launching the Genesis initiative to help multiply Baptist churches, committed to reaching lost people, committed to fulfilling the mission that Christ came to initiate.”
The initiative’s goal may seem ambitious, but Jewell believes it is altogether feasible with God’s help. “The book of Acts is really a story of ordinary men who had faith in an extraordinary God,” Jewell explained. “Let’s do that again.”
