We thank God for His continued provision for His church through you—your prayers, your engagement, and your giving. We have three items we want to update you on this week.
First, many of you know that we announced in our services on January 10, 2021, that our December 2020 giving came in just $4,181 short of our goal. And we celebrated the Lord’s provision through the generous giving of so many.
We wanted to let you know that since then, a “lost” check for over $8000 came in the mail, postmarked in 2020. That gift covered our deficit and exceeded the December 2020 need by more than $4000. Amazing! Praise God for meeting this need for His glory!
Israel Trip, October 2022
Second, we’re excited to announce that Dr. Mike Vanlaningham and Dr. Michael Rydelnik will lead a trip to Israel in October 2022 for Harvest Bible Chapel. Start thinking, praying, and saving for this trip of a lifetime. More details coming soon.
Lead Teaching Pastor (LTP) Search
Finally, the LTP Search Team is interviewing their way through what started as six and has expanded to eight candidates for the position. In this season in our country, those interviews take place via Zoom. The process with each candidate takes about three hours. We thank God for these men who desire to teach God’s Word and lead the work of ministry at Harvest. And we’re grateful for the investment that the members of the Search Team are making for the future of this church.
The final interview of this round took place on Wednesday, January 28. The Search Team will now meet to discuss the candidates, narrow the field, and move to the next step in the process.
“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
We invite you to continue to pray for the Lord’s wisdom, discernment, and favor on the Search Team and the LTP candidates as well as their families and current ministries. You can read the latest information and updates on the LTP Search on this page.
You are loved,
The Elders of Harvest Bible Chapel
