World Missions Bearing Precious Seed
Second Baptist Church has embraced the work of Scripture assembly wholeheartedly. World Missions Bearing Precious Seed has been essential in the development of our ministry here since our very first workshop on October 31, 2014. Even though we are a relatively young church in the Bearing Precious Seed family, the Lord has seen fit to make us a hub in the Midwest Seedline, a network of thirty partnering churches spread throughout several states. Every year, we ship out one or two industrial containers, each one packed with hundreds of thousands of booklets and tracts. Newly printed material is delivered to the Seed Barn, and is distributed among the contributing ministries to be assembled.
As Second Baptist was attempting to increase its involvement in the Scripture ministry, God was moving in the lives of two other people towards the same end. Dennis and Lee Deneau were at a turning point. Twenty-one years of service in one place had unexpectedly ended, and all existing options were shut off to them, as well. A mutual friend brought Brother Deneau and Pastor Waymire into contact with each other. On April 6, 2016, the Deneaus joined Second Baptist Church, and World Missions Bearing Precious Seed of Festus, Missouri, was officially established! Brother Dennis is our missionary-evangelist, traveling around the country promoting and raising support for the ministry. They also operate an independent ministry, Church Bible Publishers.
While we thank God for what He has done through Bearing Precious Seed so far, our eyes are set toward the future. Long-term goals have been set that will enable us to completely produce all materials in-house at the Seed Barn. The current inventory of John and Romans will expand to include New Testaments and, eventually, whole Bibles. These larger products will be made possible by a printing press and other major assets. As we strive to accomplish the divine will in each of our lives, we invite you to join us as a partner in this mighty endeavor, to proclaim the Gospel in writing unto the ends of the earth!
