In 2017, First Baptist Owensboro began a partnership with Chris & Mindy Flora. They live in Calgary, Canada, where God has led them to plant Multiply Church in the suburb of Silverado. We will support them over the next few years by sending teams, assisting financially, and praying continually. Come hear Chris share about Multiply Church and what God is doing in Calgary in both morning worship services on Sunday, January 28th.
About the Flora Family
Chris and Mindy were raised in Christian homes, both accepting Christ at a young age. They met in college through a mutual friend, and four kids later (ages 8, 6, 5 and 3), they still stand in amazement of what God has done in their lives. Since 2006, Chris has dreamed of leading a church that plants churches. Chris and Mindy were challenged by the need in Calgary for more healthy churches in 2015, and God used that conversation to ignite a flame within their hearts to start a multiplying church in the city. They never imagined planting a church was in their future, but God had been preparing them for many years to move to a new country, a new city, and a new culture.
About Multiply Church Plant
The Floras moved to Calgary in January 2017. They desired to plant a gospel-centric, community focused, relationally driven, and multiplication oriented church. They currently gather a group that believes in the vision God has put before them. Phase 1 included moving to and establishing their family in Calgary. In Phase 2, the Floras actively built relationships, gathered a launch team, and served in the community. Phase 3 began in fall 2017 as they began making purchases and continued training the launch team. Phase 4 begins in 2018 as they host practice services and launch public services in February. Each of these phases is bathed in continual prayer, asking God to save souls and move in Calgary.
