Phase one of the Bahnsen project has just been completed with help from David Bahnsen. He has made a consequential donation and we are very grateful that he has seen fit to assist our team as we steward his father’s works.
Over 1600 lectures will soon be arriving at our office. Some date back 45 years and will need to be remastered before entering the permanent internet archive. These technical costs are part of phase two and thanks to David’s donation, we can enter this phase much earlier than expected.
We view this provision as from the Lord. This is exciting news. We are much closer to the finish line much sooner than we ever would have imagined. Praise ye the Lord!
We welcome Five Solas Church of Reedsburg, WI to our support team! They shared this word of encouragement, “Our congregation is excited to assist in this long needed effort to release Dr. Bahnsen’s materials into the public domain. We thank you for this opportunity for Gospel partnership and bid you all God speed!”
One of our team members was able to promote our project on the floor of the Presbytery of the Midwest of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. One thousand bulletin inserts were distributed. Please pray that many congregations will consider receiving a special offering to help us complete phase one of our project.
The Bahnsen Project now has a YouTube channel on which it plans to host endorsement videos from various pastors, theologians, etc. Click here to visit our channel and please consider sharing it with others.
Bayview Orthodox Presbyterian Church has graciously offered to steward the funds which will be received for our project by mail. We offer our sincere thanks to the church, but especially to Mike Nelson for volunteering his time to handle the processing and accounting.
At our second meeting via Zoom, the project began to take on a more formal organization with the drafting of a charter document and the election of board members: Graham Dugas (chairman), Christian McShaffrey (vice-chair), Eric Wagner (treasurer), and Peter Bringe (secretary). All who continue to attend regular meetings will be counted as advisors.
After a few months of informal brainstorming the Bahnsen Project held its first meeting via Zoom to introduce the project’s vision and explore possibilities for moving forward. Over twenty men were in attendance, representing at least four denominations.
