God has given CB North Central the opportunity to see the Kingdom of God extended in the Quad Cities, which is a region of five cities in the states of Iowa and Illinois: Davenport and Bettendorf in southeastern Iowa and Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline in northwestern Illinois. CBNC officially endorsed and voted on the church plant opportunity at a May 22, 2019 Board Meeting. We are happy to introduce church planter Gerard Hall, as the individual that God has called to begin this new work in the Bettendorf area. Learn more about Gerad Hall and his desire to plant a church in the Quad Cities by watching this VIDEO.
A lot of important details have to be worked out, such as a “sending” church that will partner with Gerard. Please pray for all those involved in this unique opportunity. Read more about Pastor Gerad Hall and click here to contact Gerad regarding his plans for ministry in the Quad Cities.
