Dear Friend:

Greetings from the BMI family – I trust you are enjoying a great beginning to 2019! The first months of this year have been filled with many experiences of God at work around the globe – from Nigeria to Thailand to Texas, Florida, South Carolina and several other states. What a blessing to have opportunities to join God where He is working and to see lives transformed by a divine encounter with Him. Thank you for partnership with BMI in prayer and finances, sharing in the message and ministry God has placed in our lives.

I want to highlight several significant ministry developments that have occurred in the past few months as well as a couple that are in development. First, we debuted a new BMI website and online resource store in the last months of 2018. We are excited to have a fresh tool to engage the global community, but especially reach out to the “next generations” with the messages God has given us. The “Richard Blackaby Leadership Podcast” also debuted in 2018 and we have had great response to this new tool for spiritual leaders. Another step forward was the introduction of “Friends of Blackaby”, an initiative to develop a group of partners who support BMI monthly in our mission to help individuals, families, pastors, and churches experience God. If you have not done so, would you prayerfully consider joining us to continue and expand our ministry across America and the world?

I am excited about our new focus on the next generations through “The Collision” initiative. Our mission statement is “helping people, churches, and organizations experience God”. The Collision is an extension of this mission by applying the proven life-changing truths of “Experiencing God” into a contemporary multimedia format that is more applicable for young people. Through the use of a dedicated website (, a You Tube channel and a weekly podcast. The Collision will be led by Dr. Daniel Blackaby and I am so thankful God has led Daniel to join our ministry team.

God is always at work around us, inviting us to join Him and this keeps us totally dependent on Him for our direction and resources. We know provision follows God’s plan. May you sense the awesome God at work in your life today in powerful ways!

Experiencing God Together,

Richard Blackaby
