The CMT for the Great Lakes Region met last Monday and here is a rundown of the buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…….

* North Grand Rapids is still seeking a church planter.    If you know a person who they should know about contact or Rick Tigchon at Rockford Reformed.    Meanwhile, pray for this need.

* Holland is hopping!   Two years ago we were praying about new starts in Holland.   Now we see fruit through Beechwood, Christ Memorial while First and others are exploring.   Jeff Elzinga is moving forward in Robinson Twp too!  

* The prospects of a development officer to assist in building the funding base for planting in the Region continues to grow.   Soon we will be interviewing prospective people.  Names to yours truly!

* On the horizon are several key dates….GREENHOUSE simple church conference November 16-18….THRIVE October 29-November 2…SAN ANTONIO national planting event January 24-26.   

* Church Multiplication Service is an a new agency forming out of Beechwood to serve the planting movement….more on this as things develop.

*How are we recruiting new planters….what can be done to get the Great Lakes Region on the map for planting with young emerging leaders.   More on this as we make progress with communications efforts. 

 There you have it….a very brief summary of things….much between the lines….more to come for sure!
