Pacific Northwest Church Planting Survey Trip July 10–21, 2014 In conjunction with the BIMI Open Door Project, Reseeding America conducted a Church Planting Survey Trip to the Pacific Northwest in July 2014. In ten days our group met with and heard from over 25 church planters and pastors in the Pacific Northwest and visited many communities with no Baptist churches in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. We also squeezed in a quick trip to Montana at the very end of the ten days. All of the men who were on the trip gave testimony that God had worked in their hearts during the ten days. Most of them need to finish their college training, but several expressed interest in pursuing intern opportunities in the Pacific Northwest.  Because of this trip, there were numerous opportunities given our men to go to the Northwest for a summer or two and work with church planters we met. One of the men on the trip is praying about moving to this region to work with a church planter for  a year or so  and then start raising support to plant a church in the Northwest. to the Northwest and work with a church north of Seattle for a year or two as a staff member  as the church reaches into Seattle to plant churches. It was a joy to counsel with all of the men about the call of God to plant churches and how to identify that call. Our prayer is that this trip left an impression on the hearts of all of the men who traveled with us—to pray and ask God what He would have them do in  the  Northwest. We at Reseeding America are thankful for the opportunity to help a future generation of preachers and church planters. The men who made the trip are pictured below from left to right: Bob Larson, BIMI USA Director; Matthew Sheppard, Rodney Pierre, Joshua McIntyre, Jonathan Luchak, Caleb Saunders, and Tony Bulawa, Reseeding America church planter. Another man who traveled with us is a senior at Pensacola Christian College  this year. He has a desire to go Reseeding America – Spring 2015 5
