Missions and the Baptist Church Ministry Network
BCMN Missions is the endorsing, training, and coaching arm of the network. BCMN does not approve missionaries or process their funds. BCMN does work with missionaries who have been approved by a mission organization and who agree with BCMN’s Statement of Faith and Biblical, Balanced, and Baptist philosophy to endorse them for churches of like practices. While the sending church is, and always will be, the authority of a missionary, BCMN Missions Endorsement can open doors for missionaries to churches and pastors who do not know them, their beliefs, or ministry plan. Pastors can be confident that a missionary with a BCMN Missions Endorsement is Biblical, Balanced, and Baptist.
Missionary Trainer and Coach, Lewis McClendon
BCMN works with Lewis McClendon of Abound Missionary Services to provide training and coaching for BCMN missionaries. As a pastor, Lewis McClendon always had a heart for missions. He led his church to pray for, give to, and train missionaries. In 2009 he and his wife founded Abound Missionary Services for the purposes of training missionaries through Missionary Communication Workshop. Hundreds of missionaries have participated in the workshops that continue to this day. Lewis also served the Baptist Bible Fellowship as a member of the Missions Committee; as a Field Representative; and as First Vice President over missions.
