Imagine a busy street in London. There is a lot of hustle and bustle. People are commuting to work or coming in and out of shops. In the crowd, individuals wearing “No religion, just Jesus” T-shirts stop bystanders and say, “Can I ask you a question?” This simple question sparks the start of a church’s mission.
Brian Clark and his wife Mindy are Americans who live and spread the word of God in London. In December 2004 they moved from Springfield, Mo., to London to work with Monnow Road Baptist Church. In July 2007 the couple started a new church, The Crossroads Baptist Church in Bromley, a burrough of London. Through the years the Clarks have recruited the help of many people to help in their mission. The church’s motto, “No religion, just Jesus,” is effective, the Clarks said, because the Bible does “not reveal a religion,” but teaches people to repent, believe and follow Jesus.
Iolans Tony Godfrey, Harvest Baptist Church’s pastor, Mason Wilson, youth pastor, and Levi Baker, youth member, will help with the Clark’s mission from June 16 to June 24 by traveling to London.
