Please Pray • Students, LA, Assessment
Dear praying friends and family, Thank you for praying for us last month. We continue to see the fruit of God’s answers to those prayers as he opens doors to establish his church in global cities. This month, please pray for:
- Orchard Institute students • Every semester, we partner with a number of Christian universities to provide on-site training for church ministry in major cities. We just wrapped up a course New York City on Christian engagement and urban culture. Please pray for the young people who participated, and ask God to continue to shape their vocation and make his way clear for them.
- Collective Church • Join us in praising God for the launch of Collective Church. Pray that this new church would become established in its significant cultural center of west LA. With a population of 3.8 million in LA, and 530,000 in the Westside where Collective is focused, the opportunity for Kingdom growth is great.
- Assessment • A critical role that Orchard Group’s staff plays is helping to identify leaders for new churches. Next week, a couple of us will be attending the Church Planting Assessment Center to help to discern the gifts and calling of some new pastors and planters. Please pray for these candidates: that God would clarify his direction for them and equip them for their vision. And please pray for our staff: that we would discern well the right people for the right times and places to start new churches.
As always, thank you for praying! —Luke Greer
