What They Say:
“Reliance Fellowship is an exciting place to be. Being with them may find you in a coffee shop, on a college campus, in a garage working on a car, gathered for worship, or involved in an ongoing discipleship process. Everything is done to give God glory and point people to a closer walk with Him. I’ve worked with many church planters, but few show a stronger reliance on God and fervor toward His purpose than Jacob and Adam.”
Church Planting Catalyst, Northwest Baptist Convention
Reliance Fellowship is part of the Northwest Baptist Convention (NWBC), an expanding, vibrant network of cooperating Southern Baptist congregations in the Pacific Northwest. Their vision, and ours, is to see people drawn to Jesus Christ through the life-changing ministries of the church. The benefits of our involvement with the NWBC include doctrinal accountability, mutual ministry assistance, and the Cooperative Program for mission work. We count it a great blessing to be part of this network.
Dr. Maurice Pugh
“I am excited for the work of God in the life of Jacob Morris and the ministry of Reliance Fellowship. Jacob is a spiritually passionate leader who is committed to seeing people experience a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. He will provide sound biblical teaching, visionary leadership, and pastoral care to the members of Reliance Fellowship. With his wife Beth walking by his side, Jacob and Reliance Fellowship will faithfully serve the families of Richland, Washington. than Jacob and Adam.”
New Life Fellowship
In addition to our connections with the NWBC, our pastors also have strong connections with other churches, both locally and throughout the country. In the earliest days of their ministry, Paul and Barnabas were sent out by the Holy Spirit and the leaders of the church in Antioch (Acts 13:1-3). The involvement of established church leadership in sending out new leaders is essential.
“As I have observed Adam Bonus and his family, I have become convinced that God has great plans for them. Their training, character, skills, and vision point to a great future of service for Christ. I believe deeply that the church must be involved in reaching the unreached around the world–the Great Commission requires it. Too often American churches have sent missionaries abroad but have neglected the unreached communities at home. That’s why today’s church planting movement is vital to the future of our nation, as well as required by the Great Commission itself. I am excited for the work of God in the life of Jacob Morris and the ministry of Reliance Fellowship.”
