December 2016: Good news for all people

Joel and Tiffne Whitley were commissioned as field personnel by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship in 2003. The Whitleys raised their children Megan (14), Dylan (12), and Cade (12) while ministering to immigrants in Spain for six years. In 2013, the Whitleys felt God leading them to Strasbourg, France, to continue their work with the large immigrant population coming from countries where there is very little access to the gospel. Joel and Tiffne view their ministry as sharing the good news of God’s love while building relationships and walking with immigrants on their journey.

 

november 2016: Speaking my language

 

Keith Holmes and Mary van Rheenen are Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel who are working today to help people understand God’s Word in their own languages. This husband and wife team work to create Scripture resources and make them available in major Romany languages. Many Romany cannot read and are affected more by spoken word. Through their work, they create children’s videos, make audio recordings of the Bible, and dub films so that Romany people may hear God’s story in their own language.

 

 

october 2016: shining bright in miami

 

Angel and Jason Pittman work with Touching Miami with Love, a CBF partner ministry that provides resources, educational opportunities, and day camps for people in their community. Touching Miami with Love provides year-round programing that includes literacy, Bible stories and devotions, enrichment activities, visual arts, and fitness. These after-school and summer programs are an essential part of building up the community.

SEPTEMBER 2016: healing for haiti

Jenny Jenkins' first trip to The Republic of Haiti, on the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean, was as a last-minute fill-in on a mission trip in 2007. On a return trip in 2008 to work with schools, Jenny was called on to use her medical skills when they discovered a man with an infection in his leg. As Jenny's group was preparing to leave Haiti, she worried about the man with the wounded leg, so she returned to check on him one last time. As she knelt beside him to change his bandage, he cupped her face in his hands and said, "mèsi," which means "thank you" in Creole, the language of Haiti. "At that moment, my life changed," Jenny said, "Because I had looked into the eyes of Christ." That night she sat alone, looking out over the ocean and wept. She felt the call of God and prayed, "You open the door and I will walk through."

After the devastating earthquake of 2010, God opened a door for Jenny to return as a full-time Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel to Grand Goâve, Haiti, with a CBF Disaster Response team. Jenny’s work there is multi-faceted, but she focuses on three major areas: medical clinics, a widows' group, and education.

august 2016: GPS: God's people share (here, there and everywhere)

 

 

In Louisville, Kentucky, members of Crescent Hill Baptist Church welcome refugees from Burma into their congregation and into their lives. In the Bahamas, Ray Johnson, a pastor from Florida, teaches a training class for pastors who will, in turn, tell God’s stories to their own communities. In Slovakia, Jon and Tonya Parks teach both Slovak and English, along with other skills, to the Roma people so that they can find work and thrive in their home country.

All over the globe, followers of Christ put hands and feet to the gospel as they share God’s love with their communities in powerful and diverse ways. The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, with the support of its network of congregations, seminaries, and other groups, partners with these churches and individuals, helping to provide both the physical and spiritual resources they need to be bearers of God’s love in their contexts.

Summersalt 2016: knowing and serving in China

 

 

Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel seek to cultivate beloved community around the world. Field personnel in China are showing care for people in ways that recognize both their personal histories and how those stories matter to God. In an era of a global church, they are nurturing and equipping Chinese lay leaders to use their unique giftedness to serve their local churches. These field personnel engage in conversations, shared meals, birthday celebrations, and English classes to show their neighbors in China that they are seen and loved by God. These field personnel teach Bible classes, worship leadership, and ministry skills to equip lay people to lead congregations in China with grace, knowledge, and integrity.

May 2016: Sharing Christ's Love through friendship

 

Have you had an experience where you had to leave everything that was familiar to you? Whether leaving a place that you love, or a place that can be difficult to live in, leaving what you know can be hard. Leaving your home is never easy; leaving for a new country altogether is even harder. The internationals in the San Franisco Bay area come from far away. And when they arrive, they enter into a situation where they have little knowledge of their new surroundings or little support. Many of the internationals don’t even know the language of their new home. They might not have a place to live or any furniture or clothing with them. They probably even need food to eat. They only bring themselves.

April 2016: Saying Domo Arigato Together

 
 

This unit’s scriptural focus is Colossians 3:16-17. In this letter, Paul instructs us to "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly." Matthew Henry’s commentary explains that the Greek word for "dwell" in this scripture really means to keep house, not as a servant but as the master. Christ, dwelling in us, should be like a master who has complete control of the house. Nothing that happens within that household happens unless the master wills it to happen. All of us are in need of someone to be in control of our lives—we are in need of the good news of Christ. We need the "message of Christ to dwell among us richly."

March 2016: Firm Foundations

 

Imagine you are a Karen [kah REN] refugee, forced from your home in Burma under life-threatening conditions. After a long, hard, dangerous journey that you were lucky enough to survive, you reach a refugee camp on the Thailand border. Living conditions in the refugee camp leave much to be desired, but they are much better than where you came from. After years of living in the refugee camp, you are blessed with an opportunity to resettle in the United States. The idea of traveling so far from the place you know as home is scary, but the prospects of a better life for you and your family give you the courage to go. You arrive in this strange new country and begin the long journey of learning the language and ways of this new people and land.

february 2016: like rivers in the desert

This unit is dedicated to learning about a group of people who often walk with us in the deserts of our lives and lead us graciously to the water: chaplains. We can imagine chaplains, then, as desert guides. When you come to a desert place in your life, they are there, ready to journey beside you. Because they have crossed through this desert with others before you and because they have been trained to cross through it, they can often point you to the river, or rather, to God’s love, care, and peace, in places where you might not have seen them. Chaplains do not make the deserts disappear. They merely walk with you through them and lead you to water whenever they can.

January 2015: Encouraging Others

In this unit, we will learn about the life of Barnabas, while studying other faithful servants, who are encouraging others in West Africa. Lynn and Michael Hutchinson live in Togo, West Africa. Though there are many challenges to their work, such as language barriers, extremely hot weather, rainy seasons, and malaria, the Hutchinsons come alongside the Togolese people and tell them of the love of Jesus Christ. In this spirit, they reassure the Togolese people that God is with them and working through them. With God’s strength, the Togolese people can rise above their circumstances and experience a full and happy life through the love of God. The Hutchinsons are CBF field personnel who are encouraging others to know the fullness of God’s power through training and teaching skills that can be transformative for the Togolese people.

december 2015: new friends in a new home

 

When you find yourself in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by unfamiliar people, a friend is a welcome sight! Refugees, who have fled their home countries to resettle in the United States, are often surrounded by unfamiliar sights, sounds, and people. When a new friend reaches out to help them, they find hope…they find God’s love.

November 2015: Sowing Seeds of hope

Karen and Kenny Sherin are CBF partner-funded field personnel working in South Dakota. Kenny describes their work as being "tentmakers." He means that they work regular paying jobs outside of their mission work, and they are a committed part of the community in which they serve. By becoming true residents of the community they can work with others in the community instead of for others in the community.

October 2015: Mayday! payday!

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship has recognized the need to be a voice of advocacy for people who have been hurt by the payday loan industry. In the fall of 2013, CBF hired Stephen Reeves to fill the newly-created position of associate coordinator for advocacy and partnerships. Stephen works as an advocate in many ways, including speaking out for those negatively affected by the payday loan industry. He has worked to educate others on the seriousness and importance of this issue and has also advocated for regulations on the industry to protect those who take out loans from becoming victims of predatory lending.

September 2015: Helping God's Helpers

This unit focuses on those who have been called to care for God’s sheep — to be, in some form, shepherds in God’s image. Additionally, it focuses on those who serve as caregivers for others who are shepherds. Often, clergy and other caregivers support one another in pastoral care, particularly when a difficult situation arises. This unit examines what that looks like.

August 2015: Missions Mix

In Matthew 28, Jesus returned to the disciples after his death and resurrection from the tomb. In Matthew 28:16-20, Jesus commissioned the eleven disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and Son and the Holy Spirit. With this commission, they were asked to share all that Jesus had taught them and remember that Jesus would be with them always, to the end of the age. Throughout the Bible, we have many examples of how Jesus shared God’s love. God’s love is shown through healings, miracles, teaching, preaching, caring, restoring, and listening to others. This model is how we also can respond to those around us in need of a message from God.

May 2015: God creates and cares for all

God created us all. God cares for us all. And we are all uniquely designed by God. Psalm 139:13-14 tells us that every person has been created in the womb and known by God from the beginning of his or her days. That means that God created each child in your class, and God created each child in Africa, Asia, and throughout the world. This unit will help children understand that God cares about babies, even before they are born. The children will learn about a global effort to improve nutrition and care for babies and mothers around the world.

It can be quite overwhelming. Now imagine doing all of this in another language! Matt and Michelle Norman know these challenges well.

In the Bible, there are many references to the hope, joy, and peace that God can provide. In any circumstance of life, no matter how simple or dramatic, God has proven to be faithful and caring. It is essential to teach our children about this source of hope, joy, and peace, so that when life delivers difficult news or hard circumstances, they can trust that God is trustworthy and loving.

November 2014: Loving God with Your Whole Heart
 
Together for Hope, CBF's rural poverty initiative, is a long-term commitment to working with people in 20 of the nation's poorest countries in order to break the cycle of poverty. The ministry is about establishing long-term relationships, listening, learning, and walking alongside local leaders. In Texas, Together for Hope works in seven countries, where predominately Latino families live in neighborhoods called "colonias." These neighborhoods spring up on undeveloped land along the Texas side of the Rio Grande River. The houses are often pieced-together shacks and the colonias often lack basic services like clean water, sewage systems, and paved roads. Learn how CBF Field Personnel, Ben and Leonora Newell, are working to help people who are living in poverty find ways to earn income, become independent, and take care of their families.

The town of Emmaus is at the foothills of the Drakensburg Mountains, about five hours south of Johannesburg, South Africa. Families live in mud brick homes on one to two acres of land, which they borrow from a Zulu king. Due in large part to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the spread of tuberculosis, there are more than 4.5 million orphans in the country of South Africa. In this unit of study, preschoolers will broaden their understanding of the world through sight, sound, texture, taste, and even smell. Through the power of story and dramatic play, preschoolers will extend their compassion and perspective as they think about the experiences of orphaned children and those who seek to care for them.

Sptember 2014: God Is with Us

In the United States and across the world, many people have seen firsthand the destruction of natural disasters that were stronger than the foundations of their homes. In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of New York and New Jersey and on May 20, 2013, a powerful EF5 tornado destroyed Moore, Oklahoma, and surrounding areas. The people of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship understand that many needs arise in a community after a natural disaster strikes. CBF's Disaster Response Ministries works to provide for survivors after times of crisis. Although CBF Disaster Response is not a first-response organization, they are quick to respond when a disaster strikes. The aim is to provide a long-term presence, helping communities to rebuild and recover. It is a network of churches and individuals with a strong passion for helping others. Cooperative Baptist Fellowship churches like Metro Baptist Church in New York City and Second Baptist Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, were instrumental in caring for the needs of the survivors of Hurricane Sandy and the Oklahoma tornados. Disaster Response Ministries seeks to deliver the hope of Christ to those who feel hopeless in times of crisis. CBF is partnering with others to shine forth the hope of Christ by assisting in gathering funds, supplies, and workers to rebuild in these areas.

August 2014: We Work Together with God

Along with being the first unit in the curriculum year, this unit is unique because it does not focus on a particular church, a single community, or a specific ministry. Rather, it seeks to lay a foundation for what the children in your class will experience this year as they begin to learn about groups and individuals who share God’s love around the world. Before children can appreciate and support someone who shares God’s love “far away,” we need to help them understand what God’s love is and how we recognize it and share it “here,” in our own lives. Each session addresses one topic, building toward an understanding that we are called to work together with God in the world. As the children will discover over the course of the year, that means sharing God’s love with other people in a variety of ways.

 Summersalt 2014

  sum14 coverSummersalt 2014 features the children of CBF field personnel and the ways God is using them to impact the world. Stories of field personnel sharing God's love all over the world help us understand the importance of missions and taking care of one another. But it is easy to feel like we have to be all grown up to serve other people. The stories of children from these mission-focused families remind us that we are never too young to help other people and follow God. 

Learn more about the field personnel parents of the children featured in Summersault 2014: the Newell, Sample, Pittman, Wyatt, Harding and Myrick families.
