Pray for Me Campaign

Would your church commit to intergenerational prayer?

How can we connect more adults with more young people more naturally than ever before?

The Pray for Me Campaign was born out of this question. We believe every young person needs a team of Prayer Champions strategically praying for them. The Pray for Me Campaign creates a vast web of intergenerational relationships for young people and equips adult believers to pass on a sustainable faith to the next generation.

Our active associated churches or church plants are welcome to reserve one or both bounce houses at a suggested donation.

We also have other ministry partners who have bounce houses that may be used depending on availability. If the MBA bounce houses are booked, these partners may be contacted to see if their bounce houses are available. If your church or partner organization is looking to schedule an event, check out our online Bounce House Request Form.  We have a Standard Bounce House (13ft x 13 ft) and a Bounce House with Slide.  You may opt to request both bounce houses.  Please understand that the bounce houses are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Need more info?  Contact beth@metrolina.org or call (704) 375-1197
