[02/08/17]   Just recieved from one of missionaries, an old friend of mine, Patrick Pang:

Hi Pastor Glenn,

Thank you for your precious gift of $75 for Oct-Dec 2016. Rose and I are excited about what God has been be doing with our partnership in Singapore, Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

I taught a Doctor of Ministry Preaching Seminar at the Baptist Theological Seminary where 90 students from China and all over Southeast Asia study. Through these key influencers, the work of Bible Translation in Indonesia and Southeast Asia will be expedited. These students represent 100 million unreached people!!!

Also, Rose and I were planning to travel with leading pastors from Singapore to visit leaders of unreached people groups in Indonesia. At the last minute, at the request of our Indonesian partners, that trip was canceled because of protests that had broken out in major cities across Indonesia.

The situation is beginning to stabilize now and we are planning to visit some unreached people groups in Indonesia in March 2017. We would appreciate your prayers for a safe and meaningful trip with our translation partners and the people they serve.

Your precious gift made our ministry possible, and for that we are eternally grateful.

May our Lord Jesus Christ grant you and your family a fresh anointing of His presence and provision in 2017.

[12/13/16]   This is the email i sent out Monday, Oct 24 re name change:
Dear Key Leaders at CBC:

Yesterday I met with our two board members, John Nausler and Tony Wren. It was a great meeting, on three levels: we spent a lot of time in fellowship and prayer, we did a lot of catching up and we did a lot of forward looking work.

One thing we discussed was a possible name change for our church. The reason for a possible name change is two-fold: the Baptist name is a barrier for many people. Unfortunately, "Baptist" is often associated with traditionalism, harshness and inflexibility. That may not be "fair", but it is a fact that some people feel that way. Second, church names can become dated. Here's what I mean: in the 70s and 80s, many new churches and plants incorporated the words "new life" and "fellowship", to the point that when I encounter names like that I have a pretty good idea when they were started.

There were many churches started in the period 1957-1973 (or so) with the word "community" in their names. There was a time when "community" actually meant that the church was a non-denominational church and was a kind of Protestant "fusion" church. (These churches were often located in military towns that had been recently founded.)

We have come to a new period for our church and for the church at large. Many of our Transformation Ministries churches have in recent years adopted new names:

First Baptist Monrovia is now Palm Avenue Community Church
First Baptist Pomoma is now Purpose Church
First Baptist Colton is now Christpoint Church
First Baptist Mesa, AZ is now Connect Church...and so on.

Virtually none of our new church plants use the name for the reasons cited above.

Two things:

First, we're not ashamed to be Baptists. We have a long and honorable history of serving the gospel of Jesus effectively. But we don't want a name to be a barrier to reaching people and incorporating them into a Christ centered church. As Paul says, "I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings." (1 Corinthians 9:22b-23). In the context, Paul is talking about how he adjusts his approach when he is trying to reach people, whether they are Jews or Greeks or whatever. The core doesn't change, but the entry point does.

Second, we're not backing off from what is distinct in Baptist theology: Biblical authority, the primacy of the local church, believers' baptism, the conversion of individuals, and the priesthood of believers. It's those core convictions that make us Baptist, not the label on the outside.

The idea of a new name is something we've been discussing as a Board and as church staff for almost a year. At our board meeting yesterday, we narrowed that down to two possible names:

Fallbrook Community Church
CrossWay Community Church

We decided to retain the word "community" because of its connection with our church and with our reputation as a church that the people of the community can rely on when in need.

We recognize that both names (and any other name we could come up with) has upsides and downsides:

Fallbrook Community Church
Upside: strong sense of local identity
Downside: "plain vanilla", sounds a little old-fashioned

CrossWay Community Church
Upside: direct, cross-focused, also has a geographic reference (intersection of Stage Coach and Reche), sounds contemporary
Downside: no special local reference (by the way, the nearest church with this name is in Brea)

I have attached logos that are "concept art" for both names. We would design our own new logo.

So what now? We are in the comment stage before we go "public" with this. We just want to know what you (after praying about it) think. You can direct your comments to any or all of us:

Glenn Layne: [email protected]
John Nausler: [email protected]
Tony Wren: [email protected]

We're not running up against a deadline, but at the same time, please get back to us fairly soon. As I observed at the recent conference I attended, the churches where the best things seem to be happening are places that are willing to be bold!

If we take this step, we need to have a "new church" mentality: this would represent a new era in our church, almost like we're planting a new church...and we're that new church!

That's exciting!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Glenn Layne
