Champions of Prayer
by BSCM Staff
PLYMOUTH, MI – January 2021 officially kicks off a five year emphasis for the Baptist State Convention of Michigan (BSCM). The BSCM has set a goal of a total of 500 churches across the state convention. There are currently about 300 churches in the BSCM so to meet the goal nearly 200 churches will need to be added over the next five years. Those additions will come through starting new churches, or through existing churches joining the state convention.
There are five themes the BSCM will emphasize in leading up to 2025. They are; praying, thriving, equipping, engaging, and celebrating. The emphasis for 2021 will be prayer. The BSCM believes a foundation of prayer needs to be laid before anything else can be done. BSCM Executive-Treasurer Tim Patterson says, “We believe that when we pray and gather together, God can do great things.”
