Dear Ignite Prayer and Fasting Partners,

I want to thank you for practicing prayer for us as we start churches across Chicagoland and beyond.  Your prayers are powerful and impactful and we celebrate as we see the answers take place in our churches.  One of these churches is RiverStone Christian Church in Oregon IL.  On Sunday, February 16, they baptized 10 people into Jesus at the end of their weekly service.  Your prayers are laying the foundation for the life change that is taking place in our churches, thank you for praying.

Here are some of the things I'd like to ask you to pray for during the month ahead.

More Church Planters: 

    God has given us a great church planting team.  However, we need more in order to reach more people with the hope of Jesus.  Specifically, let's pray for at least four conversations with potential planters this month.

Non-Traditional Planter Training:

    This training begins on April 2.  Please pray that God will cause 6-10 of those invited to informational meetings will say "Yes" to the opportunity.


Ignite Field Representatives:

    I would encourage you to pray for Dave Rudin and Bret Hammond as they are working with potential individual and church partners for Ignite.  And please continue to pray for the third person who will help us reach out to northwest Indiana.

Chicago Initiative:

    I will be meeting with several individuals during March to talk about how we might address church planting in Chicago. This initiative is one of our 2020 prayer mountains.

Disciple-making in our new churches:

    Life change is happening in our recent church plants.  Please pray for the disciple-making process in our most recent churches.  (RiverStone, Engage, Rise, LifeWell and Restore.

Thank you for making prayer a priority in your life.  We know that prayer matters and that the Father answers as his people pray.                                                                                 


                                                                             Love in Christ,
