I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.

Campusing Update, September 2011
South Campus Property Update
The Elders, along with the South Site Selection Team, have decided not to proceed with the purchase of the Jurel Way property in Lakeville.
Due to factors like the steep pitch of the land, the city’s requirement to build a road through part of the land, and the presence of wetlands that had to be avoided, Jurel Way’s remaining useable space would have required constructing a more expensive two-story building and left no room for future expansion.
We’re thankful to God for answering our prayers regarding the unsuitability of this site, and we now ask you to join in prayer with the South Site Selection Team in quickly discovering the better location he has had for us all along.
Pray that ...
- We will unite and draw us together as we seek to provide a campus to reach more people for Christ in the south metro area.
- We would patiently wait for God’s direction and be reminded of the grace and mercy he has showered on Bethlehem for 140 years.
- The South Site Selection Team will soon discover the location that God has for our South Campus.
