Growing Your District into 2017

Multi-Cultural Director Named

We are pleased to announce that Brad Wos accepted the position of Director of Multi-Cultural Ministires and effective in December 2016.

Brad has a deep passion for both evangelism and discipleship from his foundational days with Navigators. Brad's first calling was to marketplace ministry, working for CitiCorp, Panera (St. Louis Bread Co.), as well as in Information Technology. Brad and his wife Patty then spent 14 years as cross-cultural missionaries in South Africa.

For the past four years, Brad has led a sports chaplain's ministry among various ethnic groups in the St. Louis area. These experiences have led him to fruitful cross-cultural ministry among internationals here in the United States.

Brad and Patty were married in 1981 and have five children. They are thrilled to join our team.

Church Planting —
It's Still Our Passion

The primary reason to plant a new church is that lives are changed . . . not only for now, but for eternity. It is an old statistic but still true — the number one way people come to know Christ as savior is in a church plant. Disciple-makers in new plants know that the mission of the church is to invite people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.

It is not only our passion as a staff but it is our district's passion as well. We have grown from 80 to nearly 140 churches over the past 20 years. It is your gifts that have provided the financial resources to keep our three church planting missionaries continually in the field, working on new projects that develop into plants that have grown into full-fledged member churches.

None of this would happen without you, as we "grow healthy churches together."
