A key emphasis for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) is church planting in 32 SEND cities.  Greenville Baptist Association (GBA) entered into a partnership with the Baptist Convention of New England and SEND Boston.  GBA will plant three churches in ten years.

Christ Church Charlestown is our first church plant.  J. D. Mangrum, along with his wife Natalie and sons Noah and Owen, moved from Greenville to Boston to plant Christ Church at the end of 2016.  Because of your giving through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) and to the GBA, the Mangrums receive financial support to create access to the gospel in one of the most unevangelized parts of our nation.  To find out more about Church Church Charlestown, click here.
