New Year, New Focus

Our theme for this new year is “Who is my Neighbor?”

This question from Luke 10’s account of Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan will keep in front of us all year the responsibility we have to be neighbors to those around us. We are producing LeaderLessons, articles for pastors and church leaders each month of the year to remind us biblically who our neighbors are, and what our responsibilities are as Great Commandment and Great Commission Christians with them.

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.
