Here's how you can pray for Ecclesia in North Oshawa this week!
1. Jeremy and I are currently in the process of asking a number of people to join our Core Team. We're asking people we've met through church connections and through our involvement in our community; some of the people we're inviting onto our team have been Christians for a long time, and some are new to the faith. We're hoping to begin with 8-10 people, and currently we're at six, with a few more thinking and praying about whether this is where God is leading them and a few more folks to ask. Pray that the Spirit would be at work, leading the right people to join us in this next chapter of life together!
2. Next week, I have the opportunity to spend a couple days in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake with a few other church planters and denominational leaders, praying and planning and strategizing for how we can encourage and continue to recruit and train new church planters in southern Ontario. I'm excited to be part of the conversation, and would love prayer for this time as a bunch of us gather to dream and plan about the future of the church together.
3. I recently got in trouble with my coach for not taking enough time off. And, to be honest, ever since he brought it up, I've realized I do feel tired and could use some time to relax and be with my family. So, in a couple weeks, I'm taking a week off to rest and breathe and recharge and swim in the pool with my daughter. So, praise God for people around me who see what I need even before I do, for work that's both fulfilling and allows me to make space for refreshment, and, of course, for time away with family!
Thanks for following along, and for praying with us along the journey!
