On Sunday, February 5, Greer First Baptist Church, its Staff, and Leadership Team began their celebration of the calling God has placed on Lance Martin, our Minister to Students, to launch a new church near his home town. Greer First Baptist is a church that supports the advancement of God’s kingdom through church planting as a primary and proven tool used to reach those who do not know Christ. Lance will be finishing his service here at Greer First Baptist on Friday, May 4, to launch this new church in the District 5 area (Lyman, Duncan, Wellford) of Spartanburg County.
We are delighted for the time we have shared with Lance and his family over the last 6 years. Please join us as we celebrate and pray for this new endeavor over the next few months. Pray for Lance as he continues ministering to our students and plans the initial startup of this new work.
Please pray also for the Leadership Team as we begin to look for our next Student Minister. These next months will be bittersweet as we lose a Student Minister but gain a sister church and partner in advancing the Kingdom. We look forward to God’s blessings as Lance, GFBC, the Leadership team, and the staff are being obedient to His will.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT: Created and approved by Lance Martin and the Leadership Team of GFBC
A personal post will come after I have had the chance to connect and answer questions with the THRIVE Students of GFBC on Wed. Feb.8…. Lance
