Meet Illinois Church Planters

- Jacob and Makenzie Goble -

Thursday, March 25, 2021

at 6:30 p.m.

This GWBA Meeting will be held at

First Baptist Church in Fairfield

One of the joys of being the AMS is that I get to meet people and see what God is doing in their lives. I met Jacob at GWBA church camp a few years ago. He was there with his youth group from First Baptist Church Casey. One year as our camp pastor and did a marvelous job. Through these times Jacob told me his story of how he had come to Christ. I learned that he was from West Salem and that his wife Makenzie had grown up in the Samaria Baptist Church. Jacob indicated that his ultimate goal was to plant a church and that he was praying about where that would be and when it would take place. Through God’s grace and guidance Jacob and Makenzie have discovered that place and the avenue by which to do it. This June they will begin working toward planting a church in Lebanon, IL. They are coming to share their story with our association and help us understand how we can pray and partner with them regarding this new venture God is calling them to. Plan on coming and bring a group from your church.
