Bear Valley Lectureship 2011

The 2011 Bear Valley Lectureship is set to begin this Thursday evening in Denver. A host of excellent speakers from around the country will be here to expose the text from the gospel of Mark. These men will proclaim chapter by chapter and verse by verse the revealed word in search of answering the question “Who Is This Jesus?”

I do not know how many of you will be able to make the lectures this year, but you are certainly invited to join us. The line of speakers promises to deliver powerful messages to help us all understand the sacred word more in-depth. In addition, the fellowship shared by all who attend is unmatched. This is one incredible event. More will follow next week.

We also have reports about the Extension Training program from several locations. The news of training men to preach continues to bear fruit in ways only God truly knows. However, we do have a report from the West Coast School of Preaching in Takoradi, Ghana that shares news from a recent campaign where 15 precious souls were added to the kingdom. What an exciting event to see as the Lord blesses and gives the increase.

The report from Cameroon also shares news of God giving the increase through the campaign efforts of the past two weeks. The students traveled to several villages to preach the gospel and the result is nothing short of incredible. This is a report worth taking time to read as well.

These are only two reports sharing the news of God’s providential hand in the work. Read more below.
