We are thankful for God's provision and care in 2022 among TVP's church planters, elders, and core groups. He is faithful. We hope the stories and testimonies throughout the year provided a glimpse into the gospel ministry happening across our presbytery in these young churches.
Some highlights from the year include the particularization of Grace + Peace, 29 known conversions, one full year of the Rural Church Development initiative, and the first year of Redeemer Athens.

3 Future Planting Sites Identified
Across the 9 churches planted, we have:
Core Families: 116 (411 People)
Average Weekly Attendance: 1,248
Known Conversions: 29
Unbelievers Engaged in Community: 1,060
Estimated Sphere of Influence: 2,732
We praise the Lord for all that he has done, and we are especially thankful to hear that 29 people have come to know Him. Both believers and unbelievers alike are growing together in Christian community through these churches.
We also thank the Lord for his financial provision. 2022 was another great year for fundraising, with our fourth quarter giving totals exceeding expectations. God raised up new supporters this past year, and we continue to enjoy support from individuals and families throughout our presbytery. Overall, giving for 2022 was slightly under our 2021 total, but careful stewardship of the budget allowed us to remain in a strong financial position entering 2023. Whether you supported the church plants with your time, resources, or prayers, thank you.
TVP invests $25,000 per year for three years as seed funding for each plant, and every gift directly impacts the work of the church planters, core groups, and communities that you see featured in this blog. If you would like to give to continue moving the Gospel forward, you can give online or by mail.
