COME Anniversary Conference

Saturday, May 24th, 2014


From May 18 – 21, 2014, we held our 46th COME Anniversary Conference at Faith Baptist Church in Muskegon, Michigan. During the conference the board interviewed and accepted Rev. Christopher Replogle as a new evangelist. He is 29 years old which means that as of last week I am no longer the youngest evangelist with COME. I have held that title for 23 years. Christopher and his wife Grace have a 15 month old son named Noah and are expecting twins, so Grace was not able to meet with us. Pray for this young family as they schedule meetings and serve the Lord in evangelism. They have a deep heart for hurting pastors and churches. Also pray for Grace that she will get the rest that she needs.

Institute of Biblical Evangelism

Saturday, May 24th, 2014


After our ministry in Iowa, we headed over to Richmond, Indiana to finish some work on our motorhome. Now the leaks in the slideouts are sealed and our new microwave is working great. On May 12 – 16, 2014 I taught a class for the new Institute of Biblical Evangelism through COME. It was located at our home office in Pontiac, Illinois. For this certificate program the class I taught was The Evangelist’s Life and Work.

COMESign  The students were faithful men and women who were interested in learning about the ministry of evangelism and seeking God’s direction in their lives. Please pray that from this class we might see one or two step into the ministry of evangelism and join Come International Baptist Ministries. The home office and sign for CIBM are in the picture.
