Prayer Requests

  • One of our biggest challenges is funding for our regional office. Pray for people with vision who will invest in our ministry.

  • Please pray for God’s hand and direction of our new strategic plan for these next five years.

  • Pray for the Advisory Council as they seek to acquire sustainable funding for the Greater Kansas City ministry.

  • Pray for God to use Young Life to raise up more and more ordinary people in Kansas City who are loving Jesus, befriending kids who haven’t met Jesus yet, and raising up disciples of Jesus who have a vision for spiritual generations.

  • I will be at Timberwolf Lake (3/4-3/7) to lead and equip our team for our summer assignment at Castaway Club (June 10-30).

Answers to Prayer

  • Independence (the third largest city in the State of Missouri) is launching Young Life for the first time in history!

  • Staff throughout the city report feeling more valued, supported, encouraged and known. The culture is shifting!

  • Praise God for healthy growth (both in kids-impacted and spiritual health) during these first five years of regional leadership in Kansas City. Continue to pray for powerful protection against the enemy’s schemes to create disunity, discouragement and distraction.

  • My sabbatical leave (December 8, 2018 - February 8, 2019) gave me a clearer vision, fresh insight, and I returned rested, focused, energized, and spiritually renewed. I am so thankful for these months to re-focus!
