NewBranch And Boston
This mission trip is unique for NewBranch as we prepare to send my family to Greater Boston to plant a church. Our projected timeline for departure is Spring 2015. This trip provides the opportunity for our church to catch the vision for church planting in Boston and serve alongside an existing church plant. For more information on church planting in Boston, visit the SEND Boston page over at NAMB.
Thank you in advance for all of your prayers. We can’t wait to get back and share testimonies of what God did during Serve Medford.
