Contributions The Midwest Gospel Work

Midwest Gospel Work

Your Fellowship unto the Furtherance of the Gospel

Prior to 2018, only two localities in the Midwest area had campus teams with more than two full-time workers. A few brothers in our area then began to pray and to coordinate in one accord to build up more campus teams in this part of the country. With singleness of heart and in cooperation with the campus workers nationwide, we started the Midwest Gospel Work and Fund. Our goal is to spread to more localities to raise up teams of campus workers to serve the Lord and the younger generation.

Progress to Date, Aug 2021

Prior to the 2020-21 school year, we had five established teams: Chicago, Urbana/Champaign, Columbus, Fairborn and Madison. Each of these teams has continued strongly, although a few teams are now seeing a decrease in the number of team members. Chicago will have eight full-time serving ones along with three serving part-time. Urbana will lose one member to go down to six team members, while Columbus will see a significant decrease from six members down to three heading into the fall. Fairborn will lose one and gain one to remain at four members, and Madison will also lose one to settle at four members.

In the fall of 2020, two brand new teams were established in Cincinnati and Minneapolis. These teams will continue into the fall with the same numbers of six and eight members, respectively. In addition, two new teams are being established. Ann Arbor has had two brothers laboring, and they are being joined by four sisters to form a very good team of six. And Lexington, Kentucky is growing a brand new team with currently three brothers.

Full-Time Campus Teams Today

Collectively, we will now have 48 who are serving full-time on nine campus teams. Each team has at least three members. We praise the Lord for all of these teams, and look to the Lord to further strengthen the teams that are now a bit short-handed.

Meet the Teams...

Our Hope for 2021 – Spreading from Strength to Strength

As of June 30, 2021 the Fund was contributing toward the support of 19 full-time serving ones on seven different teams. Disbursements have significantly increased, but so have contributions. Even with the additional support being given this past year, we still are seeing our balance increasing.

Pray also for the outreach of the gospel to the students on these campuses, that the Lord as the attractive magnet would continue to capture more students for Himself and for His testimony among the churches.
