Pittsburgh Student Team Commissioned

Last night we commissioned 63 of our students and adult leaders to carry the good news of Jesus Christ to the city of Pittsburgh. Our teams are partnering with Living Faith Community Church pastored by Ken Cordray. Ken was led to Christ, baptized, discipled and sent out from Hickory Grove Baptist Church to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the city of Pittsburgh. The first team will depart on Tuesday, April 3rd and return on Saturday, April 7th. Their time in Pittsburgh will be spent canvassing neighborhoods, participating in community outreach and Easter egg hunts all for the purpose of sharing the Gospel with those they come in contact with. The second team will depart on Tuesday, April 10th and return on Saturday, April 14th. This team will be coordinating follow-up with the contacts made the previous week as well as various projects throughout the community. Please be in prayer for these teams as they prepare and go to incarnate Christ in this dark city.

Prayer Requests:
– Pray for God to be honored in all we say and do.
– Pray for the Gospel to be spread to everyone our teams come in contact with.
– Pray for unity for our team and servant’s spirit for each team member.
– Pray for protection during our travels and our time in Pittsburgh.
– Pray that the people of Pittsburgh would know that the kingdom of Heaven has come near to them.
