In 2015 Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International, attended the Baptist Network Northwest’s Pastors’ and Wives’ Retreat in beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon. Listening to Tim Baker, pastor of Bethany Baptist Church in Salem, Oregon, share the history of church planting and the relationship of churches to the GARBC, Chris knew he had found a kindred spirit. He later contacted Pastor Baker about presenting Regular Baptist International at Baker’s church. On Sunday, Nov. 26, Chris spoke at the church, presenting Regular Baptist Press International during the Sunday School hour. Then nearly 300 people gathered for worship in the morning service, when Chris challenged the congregation to reach the various ethnic populations in their area. He also shared what God is doing around the world through the GARBC’s international partnership. He enjoyed fellowship with the Baker family over brunch. Chris says, “It was good to be in a church in the Pacific Northwest and to observe health and vitality.”
