In 2014, group of area pastors began meeting to specifically pray and discuss church planting in neighboring small towns. Over time, friendships and trust were built among this pastors group, and by 2018, a partnership had been formed between three churches to plant a new church in Minonk. We were able to partner with Community Bible Fellowship in El Paso and Crosspoint Church in Eureka to send pastor Erik Johnson (Asssociate Pastor at Crosspoint) and team of people to begin Redeemer Community Church in Minonk. Each of the three partnering churches got to experience the joy of praying over and sending out members of their church to the new work in Minonk. Together, Crosspoint, Community Bible Fellowship, and Christ Community Church of Gridley continue to support, oversee, and encourage the new work of Redeemer Community Church in Minonk.
