About Me

My name is Kenan Plunk, a missionary sent out by Grace Life Church of the Shoals in 2008 through the agency of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. 'Beseech the Lord' is my prayer newsletter.

I lived for two years in the Andes Mountains of Ancash, Peru working among the Northern Conchucos Quechua in the towns of Yanama and Pomabamba.

After nine months in the States, I returned to the field.  For 2½ years, I worked with displaced Embera Chamí people in downtown Bogotá, Colombia. After my second furlough, I have returned to Bogotá and have begun work with the Wounaan people in the southern edge of the city and the Katío people in the downtown area. From August 2019 through January 2020, I returned to the States to visit friends and family and speak in several churches.

Partner with me by striving in your prayers for me, urgently pleading before the throne of grace that the name of Christ might be great among the nations and that the Lamb should receive the full reward for His suffering having redeemed for Himself His bride from every tribe, nation, people, and tongue.

Theological Convictions:
I believe that God has revealed himself and his will to us in The Holy Bible which is the absolute truth and the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God.  It is my authority for life and doctrine. The written Word of God contains everything we need for faith and godliness in this life; and, thus, we should not seek a word from God concerning faith and godliness outside the Bible itself.

The sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit is always through Scripture, not apart from it. Therefore, we should diligently study God's Word, saturating our hearts and minds with it, hearing its promises proclaimed to us every Lord's Day in our local church gatherings, and wisely applying it to our lives, remembering that the imperatives in Scripture for the believer flow from the indicatives of who we are in Christ through His vicarious death on the cross for our sins.

Due to various interpretations of Scripture that exist today, I wish to specify what interpretation I believe to be the more biblical. I am a Baptist, and I adhere to historic reformed Baptist doctrine as laid out in the following confessions of faith:

Second London Baptist Confession of 1677 (see also 1689 Federalism)
Abstract of Principles
Baptist Faith & Message 2000
A Baptist Catechism
