Building Churches


Beginning of a new church notice the grass walls.
One of our completed churches in the Bush country of Malawi
As we were pondering the ‘great thing we had done,’ a new thought broke upon the horizon. What have you done if you build the greatest building in Malawi and have not touched the souls of men? With this thought in mind a new portion of the ministry began. I talked it over with a few board members and all agreed that Dr. Steve Newton should be the one who would be in charge of building churches. He took that task to heart and started raising funds to build churches. One motorcycle club in San Antonio, Texas raised enough funds to build a church. As of May, 2015 through the efforts of Crownridge Church Ministries, 5 churches have been built in remote areas that did not have a church. The gospel is being proclaimed!
