Welcome to Waco

by Kasey Chinn on July 17, 2016 in BOUNCE

It is hard to believe that this is the last week of BOUNCE for the summer! We are getting ready to welcome all of the churches arriving in Waco tomorrow. 150 students and leaders will be gathering to serve the Waco community from all over. Participating churches will be Central Baptist Church in Marshall, Crosspoint Church, Eastern Hills Baptist Church, FBC Lufkin, FBC Plainview, Paramount Baptist Church, and South Main Baptist.

Mission teams comprised of these churches will be rehabilitating homes in the Waco Community. This week, we will be partnering with local organizations such as Waco Community Development, Waco Regional Baptist Association, Columbus Avenue Baptist Church, and local churches. They will be providing lunches for our teams and we are so thankful for these local partners. 

Team BOUNCE is looking forward to the arrival of our participants this week. This week, our BOUNCE staff consists of Aaron Austin (Mission Coordinator), Scott Rhodes (Local Logistics Coordinator), and Mark Havemaa (Construction Coordinator). Amy Valenta, Colt Benedict, Haley Edgar, and Kasey Chinn make up the Collegiate Staff this summer. All of our staff is eager to serve the BOUNCERS this week and looking forward to see God move in the hearts of people this week. 

As BOUNCE is in the home stretch of the summer, be praying for our staff to be energetic and in tune with the Holy Spirit. We are excited to see what the Lord does! 

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.

The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
