WBC Church Planters - The Edge Church, Spokane, WA

One of the ways we have expanded missions at Wynne Baptist is through the support of national church planters in North America.  In 2015 the Missions Committee approved financial support through our FAITH Missions Offering for Zachary & Nicole Minton, church planters with Pinnacle Church Network in Spokane, Washington.

 Zachary is not only part of the leadership staff, he pastors The Edge Church in Cheney, Washington, about 20 miles south of Spokane. Zac's name may sound familiar, and it should, Zac's grandmother, Shirley Minton, is an active member of Wynne Baptist.  This past fall Zach, Nicole, and Isaac packed up and headed to Spokane to join the Pinnacle Church Planting Network.

Pinnacle Church Planting Network is headed up by Stephen Ward who has served as an IMB Missionary and staff member at Central Baptist in Jonesboro before heading west to plant Churches.  Pinnacle Church Planting Network is supported by the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention and the Northwest Baptist Convention (NWBC).

When Zac & Nicole arrived in Cheney back in August there were no Bible study groups meeting.  Today there are five groups and one of those is on the campus of Eastern Washington University!  God is definitely opening doors and opportunities.

Recently, a local Southern Baptist Church in Spokane voted 100% to give their property and buildings to Pinnacle Church Planting Network in order to revitalize the church and reach the changing neighborhood.  Zachary will lead this church as well!  That is an incredible blessing!! Please be praying for Zac, Nicole, and the leadership of Pinnacle Church Planting Network as they begin another new work to reach the lost of their area!!
