Prayer Requests

  • I will be directing a camp at Clearwater Cove November 30 - December 2. Please pray for the millions of logistics, and that the fruit of our efforts would result in kids meeting Jesus and growing in their faith!

  • I will be on sabbatical leave from December 8, 2018 - February 8, 2019. Please pray for a clearer vision of the Gospel; and that I would return rested, focused, energized, and spiritually renewed. These first four years of rebuilding Kansas City have been tough!

  • My admin Karli Farnham-Jones will be leaving staff on December 31st and Jay LaVergne will be taking her place. Please pray for a smooth transition, especially since it is happening during my sabbatical leave.

  • 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.

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