Paul wrote to the Philippians to thank these generous givers who partnered with him in his gospel advancing mission of planted churches (Philippians 1:3-5; 4:14-20). In that same spirit, the SENT Network team and some of our church planters gathered together recently for a Vision Dinner with giving partners to express appreciation, and to celebrate how God has been changing lives.
An annual vision update was provided at the Vision Dinner. This described that, as of May 2019, SENT Network has helped with the planting of 20 gospel-centered churches. 33% of these church plants are serving the under-resourced and poor communities in our region. SENT church plants are reaching their neighbors in a wide variety of subcultures, with 154 professions of faith/baptisms reported last year. Some of our church planters formed a panel and encouraged us with stories of several of those who have recently come to faith in Jesus.

In his grace,
