Where the partnership started: 

"Over 5 years ago, The Lord burdened my heart to partner with church planters in the western states. As I prayed more, He narrowed my vision to Salt Lake City, Utah. Many times, over the years I was tempted to give up on this dream, yet The Lord reminded me to keep trusting Him. A few weeks ago, the dream became a reality as we visited the Salt Lake City area. I, along with our mission team at HBC will be giving a presentation Sunday (April 15, 2018) at 10:00 a.m. to encourage our church family to embrace the vision of reaching people with the gospel in an area that is less than 2% Christian. The fields are white unto harvest. Let’s keep living the dream!"
