Oceanside, California, is a seaside town looking over the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Oceanside is located halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles, and the freeways that connect these two cities are built with seven or eight lanes each direction. Just because of the uncertainty of the Monday morning traffic, Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, left at 6:15 a.m. on Monday morning to catch an 11:30 flight out of Los Angeles International Airport.
Calvary Baptist Church, pastored by Terry Yoder, leases its site in a strip mall. The congregation has made the space very workable as well as worship friendly. The church had a good attendance as Chris Hindal presented Regular Baptist International on Sunday evening, Jan. 14. Pastor Terry purposely makes the song time meaningful. Chris shared updates on both the international distribution of RBP Sunday School curriculum and the international partnership. The congregation responded with a generous offering. Chris comments, “When people hear the stories of how God is building his church around the world, they are encouraged that He can do the same in their own area. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation.”
