Field Updates: July 2021

Kevin B. is currently a pastor in Akron, Ohio. In the fall of 2019, he went on a life-changing short-term mission trip with e3 Partners to Athens, Greece. There, he participated in a wide variety of Gospel sharing activities.

Originally, Kevin simply planned to go on occasional short-term mission trips, but God had a different plan. While in Athens, Kevin says God completely disrupted his plans. Shortly thereafter, he was led by the Lord to join the e3 team as a part-time CPM (Church Planting Mobilizer) in training!

Kevin’s first CPM training trip sent him to Lebanon, where he assisted locals with trauma healing after a deadly blast in Beirut. Alongside his team, he had the opportunity to go into people’s homes to share Jesus through the 3 circles, as well as provide love and encouragement amid the ongoing disaster recovery efforts.

Back at home in Akron, Kevin has worked to begin implementing the principles of the Four Fields within his own church and instituting small discipleship groups in keeping with the 3/3rds model. He also networks with other churches and encourages the adoption of the Four Fields by conducting trainings throughout Akron.

Kevin has a passion to achieve healthier churches—both in the US and overseas. He will soon embark on his second training trip and head back to Athens this summer; thereafter he plans to take international trips at least twice a year as a part-time CPM while maintaining his pastoral position in Akron.

Kevin points out that missions work is ongoing both here in the US and overseas. He strives to implement the same missions principles whether he’s in places like Athens, Greece or Akron, Ohio. Let’s lift Kevin up in prayer and ask God to bless all of his future efforts!
