Ministry Update

Thank you for supporting and praying for the ministry of training leaders for Christ’s church around the world. Here’s a glimpse of how God is working through the ministry of Horizon Education Network.

In Jamaica, Fairview Baptist Bible College has continued to reach beyond its campus with online courses. They just finished teaching Horizon’s Disciple Making and Evangelism course. Praise God that students reported new insights and energy for their gospel witness.

In Ukraine, Church Ministries Institute continues to develop their online program. Translation of Horizon’s New Testament Survey course is progressing well. They are also in the midst of teaching Elements of Bible Study and plan to begin Disciple Making and Evangelism in May.

In Brazil, two of my Horizon colleagues taught the classroom part of a blended Master’s course last month at Logos Baptist Seminary. They are continuing with the online part from the Horizon offices in Grand Rapids. Also in Brazil, Regular Baptist Seminary just started Disciple Making and Evangelism.

Other education partners in India, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and throughout Latin America are using Horizon’s learning management system to teach their own courses. We provide them with training and consult with them often to encourage and help their work.

Please continue to pray for these schools and their faculty and students as they train for gospel ministry. Thank God for the messengers being prepared. God has entrusted the message of reconciliation to us (2 Cor. 5:19).

We have new prayer cards printed, which will be mailed in the coming weeks. If you want to make sure that you receive one, send me a note with your address. You can also download a digital copy from

Thank you for supporting the health of the church internationally and the strength of its leaders globally.

The other children still have a few months left, but they are already looking forward to summer activities. We’re facing an exciting transition as A&G graduate from Grade 8 and look forward to high school in the fall. Please pray for God’s blessing on them.
