City Life 2018 is in the books! What a great group and awesome ministry opportunities. Join us in praising the Lord for a tremendous week!
Momentum Youth Conference
We are excited that our numbers are so strong after the June 15 deadline. We are continuing to have people register so pray with us for a maxed out campus!
Pray for Coordinator Erin Fowler as she oversees the many details that go into Momentum.
The National Institute
10 of our TNI students 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.
Urban Hope Training Center – WEST
OB students arrive Saturday and we will be filling a lot of the facility here!
Pray for Tim Lansing as he works on the logistics for transitioning to his role as Director of UHTC in Los Angeles. Continue to pray for his fund-raising efforts as he seeks a support team to partner with him.
Urban Hope Training Center – EAST
We are excited that so many youth from our city want to go to Momentum Youth conference but we are limited in the number of who can attend due to financial restraints. Please pray that God will provide for the students as they are having struggles with coming up with the finances.
God has provided for many high school graduates from the church to serve as summer interns. This year, we have Mario Ramirez (who oversees facilities), Michelle & Kevin De Jesus (sister & brother) and Christian Cherry (out of high school a year-likes computers). Please pray for the impact of these students this summer as they assist with the many aspects of the UHTC ministry.
The Urban Hope Community Church is seeking a pastor/leader for the ministry. Please pray for wisdom in this important role.
Equipping Biblical Leadership & Other CE National Programs
Coaching and Consulting
Pray for Ed Short’s ministry to pastors who are seeking fresh ideas or helps for their church. Pray that churches would seek to use this coaching & consulting opportunity to refresh and revitalize their ministry.
Thanks for your prayers for Rebekah Becker, wife of Lancaster campus pastor Scott Becker. Scott says, “The doctor is happy with how Rebekah is doing. Please pray for complete healing and for good biopsy results, which should be coming this week.”
Continue to pray for Rod Finster, pastor at Echo Valley GBC in Pine Grove, PA, as he goes thru cancer treatments. Rod recently sent out this update: “God is helping discover new methods all the time when it comes to battling this horrible disease. My doctor is happy with the fact that I don’t have any evidence of cancer in any tissue or organs. He is still believing that they can slow this way down still. I do have a spot on my neck that I will be getting radiation on in the coming weeks. This area feels like I have a pinched nerve, but it shows up clearly on my bone scan, so we will see what the Master Physician does with that. I praise God for all He is doing in and through me. I continue to ask Him to make me a good steward of this disease and allow me to be used for His honor and glory.”
