Tim & Arlene McFarland

Castleblayney/Ardee, Ireland

Tim is originally from L’Derry, and Arlene from Letterkenny.  Both of us come from a Christian home, and although growing up in the North West it was at University in Belfast where we met.  Married in 2010 we attended and became members of Bethany Baptist in Bangor.  We have been blessed with 3 boys, in 2014 Micah was born and marks the year Tim started studying in IBC, with Ezra marking the end of college.  After college we moved to Carrickmacross where Tim served as the assistant pastor in Carrickmacross Baptist Church for two years.  In 2020 Judah was born and marks the year we joined Baptist Missions in 2020.

As the church family have received the blessing of the Carrickmacross church starting over 25 years ago, they want to share that blessing with towns around them.  So, we are working alongside the Carrickmacross church, seeking to reach out into the areas surrounding the town.  The two main places are Ardee (to the south) and Castleblayney (to the north), with the end goal to see a church planted and established.

Please pray that as we seek to reach people with the Good News of Jesus Christ, that God will bless our efforts, that we will depend on him for direction, sustaining, and help, and that He will work in people’s hearts and build his church in this part of Ireland.
