Tom and Naomi Parr both grew up in Idaho and understood the need for solid, Bible-preaching churches in the Pacific Northwest. In 2006 they moved to Anacortes, WA to plant Cornerstone Baptist Church serving under Northwest Baptist Missions. The Parrs have three children at home/college: Jacob, Caleb, and Katherine. Their daughter, Chelsea, married Jason Sterling on October 14, 2011, and they have joined Tom and Naomi in helping in the ministry.
The Lord has greatly blessed their work in Washington state. They began with a core group of several families and with help from a church in a nearby city. They had the charter service for their church on December 2, 2007, and their church has continued to grow numerically and spiritually. They have seen a number of people make decisions for Christ in the last year and many of them are being discipled. The church people themselves are participating in this through one-on-one Bible studies with them. Pray for continued growth.
As of the end of 2012, we no longer financially support the Parrs.
