Ministry requests – July 23, 2019
The Rising Generation
Momentum Youth Conference
Praise the Lord for the fantastic week of Momentum youth conference! Prayers were answered as we touched the greater Marion, Indiana area through the On Mission outreach and a spirit of revival was very evident in the lives of both students and adults. The speakers did a great job at helping all to focus on the theme of The Reason, the worship times were awesome, and many commitments were made, including a number of first time decisions for Christ. Thank you for all your prayers on behalf of Momentum 2019! Continue to pray for the students as they go back home and seek to put their commitments into practice.
We are so thankful for the wonderful tours both of our OB teams had. God was so very good to us as we traveled hundreds of miles and were in a wide variety of situations. Our team members are now back home; please pray for them as they seek to honor the commitments they made this summer. Pray that they will stand strong as they prepare for this next school year. Pray that they will continue to serve as servant leaders at home, in their youth groups, and in their communities.

Continue to pray with us for ten students to be a part of SUM.
Action Year is our new gap year program that will offer students the option of instruction as well as travel – pray for people to sign up!

Pray for the TNI students who are serving on various summer internships in youth ministry. Please pray for them as they have “hands-on” training in a variety of equipping situations.
