16 Jun 60 UBs Currently in Israel
Sixty people from three UB churches are currently in the Holy Land, June 13-23. The participants come from churches of the West Michigan cluster, which is led by Randy Carpenter, pastor of the UB church in Sunfield, Mich.
Half of the persons are from Homefront UB church in Grandville, Mich.; Josh Good, the senior pastor, is part of that group.
The remaining 30 are from:
- Banner of Christ UB church (Byron Center, Mich.). Pastor Mike Caley and his wife, Lynne, are among the group.
- Sunfield UB church (Sunfield, Mich.). Randy Carpenter and his wife, Crystal, are part of the group.
- Kilpatrick UB church (Woodland, Mich.). Pastor Darrel Bosworth and his wife, Barbara, are part of the group.
Tim Flickinger, pastor of a church plant in Lansing, Mich., is also participating.
The trip is led by Mike Caley (right). This is his third trip to Israel, and the second one he has led since 2010.
“Josh Good and I have headed this up, and it has grown out of the enthusiasm generated by dozens of folks at Banner and now HomeFront church who have attended our Grow in the Word courses,” says Caley. Grow in the Word is a discipleship curriculum written by Dennis Miller, pastor of Emmanuel UB church in Fort Wayne, Ind.
