Happy Birthday Brazos Pointe!

We’re 14 years old!

As we begin our 15th year, BPF is still a church for the unchurched, guiding people to take their next step with God. We continue to form local partnerships with new church plants like Crossover Community in Freeport and CityView in Pearland. This year we began a relationship with the Houston Church Planting Network and increased our footprint with Send Seattle, a church planting initiative with the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Globally we remain engaged with the IMB (International Mission Board) and our mission partners in Mexico, Bolivia, Kenya and Cambodia.

Why all the partnerships? Because our mission stretches beyond Southern Brazoria County. These relationships also keep us outward focused, serving as reminders that it’s not about us – it’s about people who haven’t yet met Jesus. When we see all that God has allowed us to be a part of, we can’t help but be grateful.

That’s why we celebrate our birthday each year with a World Missions Offering.

We will gather it this Sunday morning. Three-fourths of what you give will be sent to the IMB and NAMB to support overseas missionaries like our own Kevin & Lauren Glenn in Southeast Asia. It will also help start new churches in mostly unchurched U.S. cities like Seattle. Each year we send the remaining 25% to a church or gospel-centered ministry that inspires us in our own mission.

This year’s designee is CityView Church in Pearland. Just over a year old, they are already having a significant impact on southern Harris and northern Brazoria Counties. As they search for land to build a permanent campus to house their growing numbers, they are preparing to launch two more churches nearby. That’s bold.

Let’s encourage their boldness with our greatest offering of thanks ever.

If this is your first year to participate in the World Missions Offering I challenge you to give at least $25. If you have given before, I have a greater challenge – consider doubling what you gave last year. That’s what Kathy and I will do. With grateful generosity we can help share the gospel, literally around the world.

Live bold,

Greg
