Oct16George Linney is a CBF church starter at Tobacco Trail Church in Durham, N.C. The congregation, which began meeting in 2010, is mobile, simple and creative. The church uses historic Christian traditions of worship, renewing them through the gifts of imagination, creativity and restoration.

Tobacco Trail Church also celebrates God’s creation  by making friends with neighbors and gathering outdoors for recreational activities.

Please pray that God will help Linney and Tobacco Trail Church plant more “Trail Churches” in concert with local business and communities throughout North Carolina. They envision small fellowships that are under 25 people and then resourced and ready to plant again. Pray that God will show the way.
