The 3rd annual Go Reach Our World (GROW) event took place on Thursday, May 23 at Wasson Nursery in Muncie. The sold-out event of 30 women from the East Central Baptist Association was a tremendous success, raising an impressive $900 for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, which supports our North American Missionaries.


This year’s GROW event centered around the theme, “And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations. Mark 13:10.” We were honored to have Andrea Valenti from Graceland Church in New Albany, IN as our guest speaker. Andrea shared her heartfelt experiences and passion for church-planting wives across North America. Working alongside NAMB, she is particularly passionate about vulnerable people groups and both overseas and local missions. Andrea and her husband, Dr. Tony Valenti serve at Graceland Church in New Albany.


The GROW event not only provided an opportunity for our ECBA churches to come together and support our North American Missionaries, but it also served as a platform to raise awareness about the importance of spreading the gospel to all nations. Attendees sent a postcard to an Indiana Church Planters Wife full of encouragement and prayer and left with a full flower pot to remind them this summer to pray for missions. We are grateful to all those who attended and contributed to the success of this event. Your support will go a long way in furthering the mission of our North American Missionaries – to share the gospel of Jesus Christ!
