Please join us in praying for the Co-Mission Planting team.
Give thanks for a successful first term of the new monthly Bi-Vocational Church Planter Training course provided through the online platform of the London Church Planting Academy. Please pray that we’re able to give these hardworking heroes all the support they need to feel equipped and supported for their task.
Give thanks for the church planters who form this year’s cohort. They are a terrific encouragement to one another and a great source of joy to us as a team. Please pray that we’re able to provide them with what they need not only to survive the rigours of church planting gospel ministry but to thrive as they do so.
Give thanks for the collaborative and cooperative working relationships enjoyed by Richard Perkins (Director of Church Planting), Andy Harker (Acting Principal of the London Church Planting Academy) and Phil Smith (Church Planting Administrator). Please pray that we use our complementary abilities so that, under God, we end up being more than the sum of our parts.
Give thanks that we have been able to provide Church Planter Training online throughout the past term. Pray that the forthcoming series of talks in 2 Corinthians about authentic gospel ministry, the talks of Leading Teams, seminars on the principles and practice of running different kinds of meetings for our pre-launch guys, and seminars on understanding the life of the church planter for our post-launch guys will be helpful.
Give thanks for the provision of gospel ministry coaching that we’ve already been able to provide to our existing planters. And please pray that our renewed efforts to provide every church planter with a gospel ministry coach will come to fruition. Pray especially for an online Coaching Training Session in early March in which we hope to equip Co-Mission Pastors to provide this invaluable support to our church planters.
