Residents & Appointees
|Chris & Bethany Burch - Remington IN
Chris & Bethany Burch are currently Missionary Residents with MCE. During Spring Break in March 2013, we hosted this couple for a time of exposure to church planting around the Midwest. After that time with us, they made the commitment to serve with MCE and entered into our Residency program based in Remington, IN.
Chris’s eventual desire is to serve as a plant leader in an MCE field still to be determined. He is originally from Montana, while Bethany is from Ohio. They met at Frontier School of the Bible where they both have completed their course studies. Chris' internship will complete the requirements needed for him to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Bible.
Now having settled with us in Indiana, we are excited about their future ministry with MCE. Chris has consented to serve in an important function within the scope of MCE ministry. Even though we have entertained two previous residents under the MCE banner, Chris is piloting a new approach for us in this area. He will be the first resident who will spend Phase 1 of training at Heritage Bible Church in Remington under the mentorship of Training Director Dan Nave. Afterward, Chris will be assigned to an existing plant project as a team member working together with another plant leader; this will be Phase 2 of his training. This will then prepare Chris for his leadership role as a plant leader / pastor at an MCE church plant project.
During this initial phase of their residency, the Burches are beginning the process of building their missionary support team for both prayer and finance. Their financial support level as residents is $3,000 per month. Chris and Bethany are both temporarily employed in the Remington community.
It is our desire to build a support team now so that upon placement in the field, the team can be mobilized right away enabling this couple to launch their work with as little transition difficulty as possible. Please consider joining the Burch Support Team. Chris and Bethany would be honored to know of your participation with them.
