Fellowship with one another


Purifies us from all sin

Walk in the light

The blood of Jesus

1 John 1:7

Council of Directors The Council of Directors (COD) met on October 13 - 14. The COD passed the Theological Council’s recommendation that Pastors Dean Rostad and Daniel Bronson be ordained into the Ministry of the Gospel. They also voted to call a missionary couple to the Bagirmi people group of Chad, Africa. Their name will be announced as soon as all the applicants have been notified. The COD also wrestled with the realities of ministering with very limited resources as contributions are lower than previous years with an estimated negative outcome of over $200,000 by April 30, 2012. The COD committed our pastors, congregations, and our joint denominational mission to the Lord, praying for his provision! Download the Minutes

If God has placed it on your heart to help support Japan’s recovery, you can mail your donation to:
