Mission Venture Plan

Thank you so much for your support of the expansion of God’s Kingdom through regional MVP initiatives.  Our unity and partnership is producing great results!

Jared Laskey and his wife Rochelle have 4 children and are planting Destiny Church in Virginia Beach, VA. They took a step of faith and sold their home in Jacksonville, NC (within 36 hours of listing! – Praise the Lord!) and moved their family to Norfolk, VA.  Jared has a vision for church multiplication in the most southeastern portion of our region.  We see this church plant as a strategic plant near the prestigious Regent University. Jared is already leading an INSTE group and developing relationships with people that will make up his launch team.  Check out their 2 minute video on their MVP page:

Matt & Bev Thomas

Matt and Bev Thomas have a multi-generational vision for Generations Church to reach the lost.  The church plant is taking place at the previous New Hope Building in Clay Township, Ohio.  Matt and his team are excited about how God is already moving, bringing new people to the launch team.  Matt and Bev have a great launch team and they are blessed with strong ministry leaders that will help develop and release disciples.   They are launching in October of 2016 to Sunday morning services and look forward to what God has in store.  Please check out their MVP page:

With the maturing of the region’s current pastoral ranks and a vision for a church multiplication movement, there is an urgent need to develop emerging leaders.  The Toledo School of Ministry is going to be a vital link in the leadership development chain in Open Bible East. We envision this school to be a template for other schools in strategic locations throughout the region as well.  The Toledo School of Ministry is launching the end of August. To ensure the healthy birth of our first regional school of ministry, we ask for your prayerful support.  Here is their MVP page for your convenience:
