Thankful for 2015

Dear Praying Friends and Family,

For the past few years, we’ve made a habit of looking back at some of the highlights of what God has accomplished in our lives over the year. We want to share with you, because you help to sustain this ministry with your giving and your prayer.

So, without further ado, join us in thanking God for an extraordinary 2015. Here are some highlights:

New Churches In 2015, Orchard Group helped to launch new churches in Miami and in Los Angeles. Both of these cities are in great need, and they both present tremendous opportunities.

New Milestones

There were Orchard-planted churches across the spectrum this year that celebrated major milestones: 1 year, 5 year, 10 year, and 20 year anniversaries!

New Christians Without a doubt, our greatest thanks to God is for those who have been made new in Christ. This year, hundreds have been baptized in churches that we’ve helped to establish. Here is a video from one of them, highlighting the 107 (!) baptisms that they celebrated in 2015.

Ancient Mission All of these new things are God’s faithful answer to his own ancient promises. We are overwhelmed with thanksgiving that we get to play a part in His mission to people in cities all over the world. Thank you for joining with us!
