The 'bad kid' is doing good now

One of the highlights of my summer was the SEND North America conference at First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Ga., in late July. The atmosphere was electric! The speakers were powerful and right on target. As reported in the Recorder, the gathering was well attended by Baptists of all ages and was representative of the wide range of our convention’s vocational leadership.
I was able to connect with friends from many states, and I made new friends. I was talking with some men from North Carolina over lunch when a young man whom I did not know joined us. Apparently everyone around me knew him. Matt Chewning introduced himself to me as a former North Carolinian from the Piedmont Triad, now a church planter in the Greater Boston area.
I was impressed with his passion for the gospel and his excitement for his calling as a church planter. As we talked, the reporter in me saw a great story that needs to be shared with North Carolina Baptists.
Matt’s story is the headline for this week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder and can be read on our website, also. Please take a few minutes to learn what God is doing in Boston through our committed church planters. NAMB is doing a stellar job of supporting and encouraging these families who serve on the front lines of urban mission fields.
When you finish reading the story, consider becoming a partner with Matt or another church planter through the N.C. Baptist partnership. Contact Mike Sowers at msowers@ncbaptist.org if you want more information. It will revolutionize your church family!
