Prayer  INC

 

 

Half way through the year - already?

Football teams use their halftime break to make adjustments for the second half ... and with your help, we are doing the same for our ministry of "connecting people to God through prayer and city transformation." 

Thank you ~ I am in the midst of researching and writing an article on Prayer Evangelism for Prayer Connect magazine. Without the prayer and financial support of generous people and visionary congregations, I would be unavailable to accept this opportunity to chronicle how prayer has accelerated the showing and telling of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What joy
 ~ I had serving as interim pastor for Evanston Baptist Church these past 10 months. A small congregation with big faith and global reach. This past month several EBC members have returned to report on their mission service across the globe. Carol and I will miss the EBC family - but, as their new pastor arrives in August, we will also feel the loss of that imcome.

Changes ~ As Prayer Coordinator for the 1,000 Great Commission Baptist Churches in Illinois (IBSA), I have seen prayer become a central value among pastors and leaders - but, because of budget cuts, the monthly stipend for my position was reduced this year and will be further reduced in 2013.

Halftime adjustments ~ For the second half, we are asking the Lord to increase the number of people who invest in Prayer INC with their prayer and their financial support ... and for current givers to pray for the capacity to increase their investment.

 

Prayer INC supporters have been used by the Lord to sustain our ministry:

 

·        To pastors in 20 nations; most of them desperate for equipping resources and pastoral guidance (thank God for email!) unavailable in remote and rural regions:

o   Cote-d'ivoire– Ethiopia – Ghana – India – Kenya – Malawi - Namibia

o   Nepal – Nigeria – Philippines - Qatar – Rwanda – Senegal - Sierra Leone

o   South Africa - Uganda - United States – Zambia – Zimbabwe

 

·        To high impact leaders in America; heads of major Christian ministry and mission organizations, facilitators of national ministry networks and collaborative citywide movements … many who will gather in Denver this October for the Mission America Coalition 2012 Leadership Consultation I've been asked to coordinate.

 

·        To congregational leaders through interactive workshops and seminars in churches and at conferences across the country (some recent feedback):

o   “We have been talking about how to move our prayer lives to a more effective evangelistic movement. You gave great ideas to provide meat.”

o   “You gave us an expanded vision of prayer. Engaging speaker - clear communicator - interesting & compelling presentation.”

o   “Great learning session, something for every church here.”

o   “Thank you, good ideas - very motivational.”

 

Frankly, without the generous support of faithful givers, we could not even afford to serve the ministries from which we receive a stipend! Their investment provides a minimal foundation for our ministry account, from which we pay travel expenses and internet/website costs, and from which we augment our income (stipends provide approximately $1000 a month in personal income).

 

Several ministry resource consultants have been amazed we are able to keep going without additional income; one recently told me he thinks we need an additional two thousand dollars a month to fulfill all God has put on our plate (I helped convene 70+ networking leaders from across Chicago – what collaboration potential!).

 

Your investment in a strategic kingdom enterprise plants seed that will bear fruit … into future generations!  {Please let us know if you need more information}

 

 

 

 

We welcome your prayers and your partnership!

For those who are wondering:

We’ve kept our salary at the same level as when we began this ministry in 1999 … Our aim is to never set a fee to teach or preach the Word of God, which is why the contributions of partners is essential to serve the neediest of congregations and ministries … Financial gifts are tax-deductible (receipts provided with each gift and at year-end) … Yes, we have been called to what some call a faith-based ministry, not unlike thousands of “missionaries” who are reliant on the grace of God and the mercy of those who share our vision and passion ...

I continue writing a commentary for Church Prayer Leaders Network - Coordinating the 3600+ members of the Pray! Network - Blogging resources for pastors on the 6:4 Fellowship site headlined by Pastor Jim Cymbala - Coordinating Loving Our Communities for Christ  … and when you include the Evangelism Connections e-newsletter, each month our work is broadcast to over 60,000 Christian leaders … And yes, posting about the Beach Boys on PrayForSurf.net
