Gleniti Baptist Church has adopted the Multicultural Response Ministry and appointed your humble servant, Jonan Castillon as coordinator during the 9th June quarterly meeting.
Mark Pavelka, Senior Pastor and Wendy Gerling, Associate Pastor, are the pastoral team of Gleniti Baptist Church.
Through their leadership and the commitment of the GBC congregation, the church has continued to become a welcoming church and more engaging with the community.
They see the Multicultural Response ministry helping them to reach out more with the migrant communities in Timaru and beyond.
The Hopevale Trust has committed to supporting financially the coordinator role, which is projected to grow from 10 to 20-hour weekly work.
This is a groundbreaking development for the Gleniti Baptist Church, Multicultural Response Ministry, and Hopevale Trust.
Three entities unite to perpetuate a ministry that focuses on stimulating the Christian community’s responses to the multicultural situation and trend in South Canterbury.
We are thankful to the Gleniti Baptist Church for adopting the Multicultural Response Ministry and the coordinator appointment.
On 18 July, Gleniti Baptist Church presented and prayed for us and the ministry. In the afternoon, we shared our testimonies with a group of GBC people.
We are happy, excited, and looking forward to a very fruitful work with the Gleniti Baptist Church. To God be the glory!
