“The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” -Proverbs 16:9
The beginning of the year presents an opportunity to set strategy and move forward, but the most important part of this process is prayer as we seek God’s direction in our lives and ministries.
My ministry is serving collegiate missionaries as they minister on college campuses throughout New England. The Baptist Convention of New England has identiﬁed 237 unique college campuses in the six state region, and as a network of churches we are sending church planters and collegiate missionaries to these campuses.
About 1 million college students live in New England, but 60% of campuses have no identifiable Gospel witness. As we start off 2019, will you join us in praying the following things?
Lord, use me to lead people to Christ and make disciples.
Awaken the students of this region to the gospel of Jesus.
Send churches, men, and women to evangelism and disciple making on the campuses of New England.
Encourage the missionaries, pastors, church planters, students, fellowships, and churches that are living the great commission on campus by your word and Holy Spirit.
Your will be done on earth as it is heaven.
Andy Haynes serves as the Next Generation Co-Director of Collegiate Ministries.
