The purpose of Open Door Baptist Missions is to promote the work of Christ in regions that have been closed to the gospel or that presently have little or no gospel witness. We strive to accomplish this task while the Lord has set before us an open door (Revelation 3:8). This is done through the collective support of local churches.
We stand ready to help fundamental, Bible-believing churches place their missionary candidates on the field of God’s call. It is our desire to give the Gospel to those who have never heard.
We endeavor to partner with those who are already laboring in the harvest fields and help train those who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
Monthly Missionary Updates
►David & Roxana Keiser are excited about what the Lord is doing in Puerto Rico. In the Fall, Puerto Rico Baptist College hosted its annual Bible conference. David spoke to the teens / college & career ages about using social media in a Christ-like manner. He has also preached in several churches. Their local church has been waiting for a church-use permit since mid June. All inspections have been passed.
►Micah & Debbie Colbert in Buffalo, NY are thankful for the faithful prayers and support of His people for the advancement of the Gospel. God has given the increase and taken a group of less than a dozen and developed a unified core of about 30. They continue to pray for the growth of transformed lives into mature followers of Christ in a multi-ethnic, disciple making, gospel centered community.
From the Director
I recently spent a few days with our ODBM North American church planters during our annual Church Planters Conference. The bulk of the conference is spent praying for each couple as they share their blessings and struggles. As I listened to their “accomplishments” and “failures”, I was touched by their humility, transparency, passion for the Gospel, and their compassion for their sheep. Some may not view American church planters as “real” missionaries, yet they face unique and daunting challenges as genuine laborers in a great and needy mission field—America. How will America continue to impact the nations of the world if we neglect our own? Maybe we should spend a little extra time this month praying for church planters and considering how we can help them.
