Ministry requests – August 15, 2018
The Rising Generation
Pray for high school students to consider applying for OB 2019. The first application deadline is November 14. We plan for two teams with two separate orientations (LA and Philadelphia) and different tour dates, so this will be a shift from what we have done for the last number of years.
Pray as we determine administrative leadership for the two teams.
City Life will also expand to two teams, LA and Philadelphia, in 2019. Pray that we will be able to have both locations with good numbers at each.
Momentum Youth Conference
Continue to pray for the students who made commitments during the week and are now seeking to put it into practice. Many of them have already started school or will be very soon – pray for them to be good testimonies and stand firm in their spiritual decisions.
It is not too soon to be praying for those who plan Momentum as meetings have already started about Momentum 2019!
The National Institute
Pray for the TNI students who are finishing up summer internships in youth ministry.
TNI students return to campus later this week and our first TNI class takes place the last week of August – pray for a great start and a good school year!
Urban Hope Training Center – WEST
Continue to 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.
Pray for continued work being done here at the facility in preparation for visiting teams.
Urban Hope Training Center – EAST
We are very much in need of staff persons to oversee the many great children’s ministries here. Please pray with us.
There are transitions in the local church. Pray for Michel Faulkner (interim pastor) and the plans for the future.
Please pray that God will provide the staff and resources for the wonderful opportunities in our area. The homeless are coming to Jesus and changing. The needs can be daunting in helping them.
Equipping Biblical Leadership & Other CE National Programs
We are thankful for Knute Larson, who oversees this program which provides helps to those in the pastorate and church ministry. September 19 is the next Pastorpedia Live event here at CE National, when Knute, Jeff Bogue, and Jim Brown will be sharing on multiple topics while filming live. Please pray for a great response to this valuable training
Please pray for the new vice president positions being filled for the entire ministry of CE National. As a Church Effectiveness ministry office we oversee Urban Hope in both Philadelphia and the one that is starting up soon in Los Angeles, as well as the ministries mentioned above. Pray for the impact of the new staff.
