St. Regis, Montana
Baptists on Mission will send teams to St. Regis, Montana to assist in the construction of a new parsonage. The congregation is one of very few evangelical churches along the I-90 corridor between Missoula and the Idaho border. Housing in the area is both sparse and very expensive, making it very difficult for the congregation to offer a pastor a living wage. The building of the parsonage will show the community that this growing church is committed, and here to stay. The church is raising the required material funds for this new project. Its success will be dependent on volunteer teams. The slab for the addition will be poured in the spring of 2021. We will need several teams to do framing, roofing, siding, sheetrock hanging and finishing, trim work, tile, painting, and other finish work. All teams will be scheduled through the NCBM office. Teams will be needed throughout the summer. We will schedule up to, but not more than, 24 volunteers per week, so there could be more than one team on site per week. Teams will arrange their own travel to St. Regis (Spokane WA, Missoula MT, or Kalispell MT are closest airports). The church has a 15-passenger van that teams could use, and would be willing to pick teams up at the airport if needed. Teams may also want to rent vehicles if they fly. NCBM bunks will be set up at a sister church that is currently without a congregation about 15 miles from the project (sheets, towels, and pillows provided). A room will be set up for cooks at New Day Fellowship so they will be onsite for meal preparation. Church has bathrooms, a shower, and a kitchen for team’s use. All team members will need to enroll in the volunteer missionary insurance offered by NCBM (only 75 cents per person per day).
