Washington, DC Partnership

Since October 2014, the Bradley Baptist Association has explored partnering with SEND DC Church Planters, Zack Bekele (Gilgal Ethiopian Church) and Zack Randles (Waterfront Church). At our Spring Missions Gathering held at First Baptist Cleveland this April, God confirmed His blessing on our  partnership through a vote of our partnering churches. Our DC partnership will be based on the Three “P”s of Prayer, People and Provisional support.

We are asking each BBA church to prayerfully consider the amount of  provisional support they can provide to our partnering Church Planters in 2015 and beyond. In particular, Zack Bekele is in the process of raising his support and will need to know soon how the BBA will be able to support him. We are setting a goal of $30,000 to support both Pastor Zack Bekele and Pastor Zack Randles in 2015. We already have $12,000 pledged and are seeking an additional $1,000 per partnering church to be given by the end of 2015.

Report from South Africa

Dear Prayer Partners,

I want to thank you for praying for us. We received an invitation over a year ago to speak at the Seeking God for Revival Leadership Conference in Phalaborwa ,South Africa. The purpose of this conference was to bring pastors, elders and church leaders together to hear the message of revival and prayer. It was a huge success with 39 pastors and 41 church leaders in attendance.

These pastors have never been in the same room together and they represent the next gathering, where they plan to rent a local stadium for prayer, repentance and worship. They are moving forward and will come together as the people of God with a burden for revival in South Africa.
