You Helped a Church Plant Buy a Building!

Many of you have been following Adam Reardon’s church planting journey. He and his family have been real heroes for all pastors and church planters to emulate. They have displayed true grit in the midst of challenges. Click below to watch a video update on Adam Reardon and Redemption Church’s building.

Redemption’s offer on a building in Belvidere was accepted last year, and Converge MidAmerica was able to help raise an additional $95,000 for their down payment.

Interestingly, Redemption Church gave $5,000 to help Casa de Oracion with their down payment last year. Here is an infant church modeling our Converge values of generosity!

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25

Adam has had the privilege of serving in a few diverse churches in different roles and locations. In 2008, both Adam and his wife Audrey began to feel like God was calling them to plant a church in Boone County, Il. To confirm that call, they participated in a Church Planting Assessment Center hosted by Converge MidAmerica.  

In 2008, I invited Adam and Audrey to work alongside me and help restart Meadowland Church in Johnsburg, Il. While they only planned on staying for one year, God had other plans.  

After serving at Meadowland Church for almost six years, the Reardons sensed God was calling them to step out in faith and leave Meadowland to go plant a new church in Belvidere, Il.

After a lot of prayer and conversations, Meadowland Church agreed to release the Reardons from ministry and send them out as missionaries to Boone County. 

Adam is passionate about introducing people to Jesus, and walking alongside people on their spiritual journey. We are grateful they are still part of what Converge MidAmerica is doing!
