Canyon Baptist Church, Hungry Horse, MT
Lewis Tidwell led a missions team to Canyon Baptist Church in June 2004 to work on their building and conduct a Vacation Bible School. The missions team effort kick-started the work of CBC in Hungry Horse, Montana. It was readily apparent that this church needed some financial assistance and we included them in our budget. The ministry continues to grow and Pastor Lee Swafford and his staff continue to lead Sunday services. They have various ministries including an addiction recovery program, a summer day camp, and help with Beyond Borders for Christ. For more information:

Mountain Marketplace Mission, WV
The Mountain Marketplace Mission in Webster Springs, West Virginia, was started 17 years ago as a result of Gary Melton's vision. Gary and Lily, destitute and living in a car, answered God's call and purchased an old two story house for a mission to serve the poor people in Appalachia's second poorest country. God has blessed this mission as it serves the poor. Our church has participated in 5 mission trips sponsored by the Emerald Coast Fellowship of Baptist Churches.
