The Year Ahead in 2012

This new year offers several bold and challenging opportunities for our church – planting a new fellowship in Galveston, constructing new facilities here, and adding new staff on our team.

Coastal Community Church – On January 1st new Lead Pastor Aaron Sanders gathered folks from BPF with former members of University Baptist Church to form a launch team for a new work on the Island. This coming Sunday at 5:30 PM they will host a Vision Night in Galveston for everyone interested in reaching out to unchurched folks there with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Contact Aaron if you want to join the cause – asanders@brazospointe.com.

nextSTEP Now – The work of building up the pad for our new facilities on the Brazoria Road is complete. Now we wait around six months for the dirt to settle. Construction documents have also been finalized. Our next steps include bringing a water line to the property, building a pump station for the retention pond, and interviewing and selecting a general contractor. We hope to begin construction sometime this summer.

New Faces on Staff – After serving as an intern with us the past two summers I’m pleased to announce we have hired Kaitlin Staples to join our Children’s Ministry Team beginning this month. Kaitlin graduated from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in December earning a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry with a Minor in Preschool & Children’s Ministry. For now she will serve part time with us and is looking for other part time work as well.

With Aaron’s move to Galveston, Amy Wheeler has now assumed the duties of Interim Student Minister here at BPF while we search for the new Student Minister God is planning to send us. Over the past several weeks we have received dozens of resumes from all over the country, and a few overseas. A Student Minister Search Team consisting of myself, Amy, Ex. Pastor Kirk Willson, Children’s Ministries Director Kathy Peters, Scott Henderson, Paula Jones and Jennifer Armstrong have been reviewing these resumes and following up on several of them. Please pray for us as we seek to discern God’s man to partner with parents to lead our students and student volunteers.

Added to all the other opportunities we have, these big challenges ought to make for an exciting 2012 for Brazos Pointe.  I hope you are as eager as I am to embrace them!

Live bold, Greg
