Northstar Church launches Pulaski campus. Based in Blacksburg, Northstar’s newest campus began with a healthy crowd at their launch this past Sunday. In fact, if you include Powhatan Community Church and the Village at Bon Air, there were three new multi-site launches this week. Praise God!

More info & pictures from the Village at Bon Air: Allison Maxwell, both VBMB’s Associate Coordinator for Courageous Churches and a member at Bon Air, gave us pictures from last Sunday’s launch. She has been intimately involved with the launch as her husband, Jake, is the campus pastor. Allison wrote a summary of how the Village got started:

Over a year ago now, the interim minister at a church on the corner of Patterson Ave. and Horsepen Rd. approached our Pastor about shaping New Covenant Baptist Church into the newest campus of BABC.

Well, the course that conversation took ultimately ended up creating a brand new faith experience for so many of us. Jake is now the Campus Pastor of this new campus, what we call Bon Air Baptist Church @ the Village.

The last many, many months have been……….FULL!!  This past weekend we were able to see a glimpse of the fruit from so many people’s labor.  And labor it was!!!

Many a day, hour, weekend, weekday, etc. has been spent preparing the facilities to open anew, as Bon Air Baptist @ the Village. Well, I’m happy to report this past Sunday, September 8th, was LAUNCH DAY for the Village, and it was SO EXCITING!!!
