Missionary Couple Comes to Serve Boston Planters, Teams

Scott and Lori Jabloski are short-term missionaries in Boston… kinda.

Moving from the Atlanta area to Revere, MA in early June, 2014, the Jablonskis have come for at least the summer to serve church planters by coordinating and assisting with mission teams and events.

And they didn’t waste any time. The week they arrived, they ran point on the Boston Church Planting family picnic in Winthrop with a mission team of 70+ from First Baptist Church Prattville, AL. The next day, the Jablonskis were back at it, setting up for the same team to lead worship for an outdoor Sunday service in Malden, MA.

First to arrive and last to leave. Nothing new for Scott and Lori.

“That’s just how we roll,” said Scott, 40.

It is a new season of ministry. After 19+ years in youth ministry in the local church, the Jablonskis are officially MSC Missionaries with the North American Mission Board, which means 100 percent of their support is raised through partnerships with faithful friends, families, and churches.

If you are a Boston church planter and you have not connected with the Jablonskis please email or call Scott at (404) 788-1240

Partnering together to equip and encourage Church Planters of Boston!1023666_203144453886

Over the past year, God has continued to burden our hearts for the lost in Boston. It is overwhelming as you consider that less than 3% of people in Boston are evangelical. Currently there are 42 church planters trying to reach over 3.9 million in the greater Boston area. These church planters face many hardships – relocating their families to a new area, engaging a difficult culture, and trying to building a church from the ground up, all the while working a full-time job. So this summer, Lori and I will be traveling up to Boston to work alongside these planters. We are excited about the opportunity to encourage, equip and help with logistics. We invite you to join us in three specific ways:

1. We need prayer partners. Ministry is difficult and spiritual warfare is real. God is moving mightily in Boston. We need people to lift Lori and I up while we are on the ground, as well as lifting up the church planters in prayer. 

2. We need people/teams to come and serve. There is so much to be done in Boston and countless opportunities to serve. Contact me about opportunities.

3. We need financial partners. It is very expensive to live and work in Boston. Housing is one of the biggest expenses. Besides, we will be keeping our apartment in Atlanta. Thankfully Scott’s boss has been gracious enough to give him 8 weeks off to go and serve. However this means we will not have his income during the summer. Please consider how you can help invest into these planters, Boston and eternity. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information about Boston. Scott’s email is pastorjabo@gmail.com.
