The Ohio Association of Regular Baptist Churches met for its annual conference Oct. 19–21, and Michael Nolan, director of Baptist Builders Club, was on hand to share with pastors and wives the ministry of BBC-USA. He participated at the invitation of David Warren, state representative of the OARBC.
Nolan gave a high-level overview of the various areas of assistance BBC-USA offers: Start Up (church planting), Build Up (assistance with building projects), Help Up (assistance during emergencies), and Disaster Relief (ministering during catastrophes).
Every adult in every church could get involved in Baptist Builders Club, Nolan told attendees. Members of BBC-USA support the ministry by praying, giving, or joining the Ready Now team who serves as a group to aid churches and minister in their communities during catastrophes.
The conference’s host church, Calvary Baptist in Chillicothe, Ohio, received a grant from Baptist Builders Club in 1970. Seventy-four additional Regular Baptist churches in Ohio have received grants in BBC-USA’s history, with the ministry giving over half a million dollars to strengthen these sister churches.
