Vision Trip Berlin – Taylor & Lydia Whitley … and Luke, too!

IBCB’s missions vision includes a commitment to church planting — globally and locally. In keeping with this vision, IBCB will be hosting Taylor and Lydia Whitley … and Luke, too … for a VISION TRIP as they explore God’s direction for their ministry of church planting.

No strangers to the IBC — they served on staff at IBC Stuttgart — the Whitleys are completing their first year of residency in Bremen and are planning to relocate in August 2021 to a place of God’s calling. Perhaps, that’s Berlin!

That’s why during the week of 15-22 August, we’ll hear from them in worship, join them in a church planting vision conversation, join them on a prayer walk, and support them during their week in Berlin. You can read more about it in next week’s eNotes, and you can read what the Whitley’s wrote in their newsletter below. Join them and IBCB as we seek God’s vision for our ministry of church planting.

Vision Trip: Berlin!
We are excited to announce our upcoming vision trip to Berlin, 15-22 August. We will meet primarily with IBC Berlin and their pastor Scott Corwin to explore a future partnership. We will also meet with other key leaders, missionaries and church planters in the city. If you are able, we ask you to pray with us as we prayer walk around Berlin.

Episode 2: What are we “saved to”?

If the gospel is “good news,” what’s so good about the gospel? Is it simply being rescued from sin? Is it more? We know what we’re saved from, but what are we saved to? Listen to this short conversation about the goodness and abundance that God has in store for us.
