Supported Worker: Shoreline Church
Country: United States of America
Details: Pray for Chris Durbin as he transitions to become the Lead Pastor at Weymouth Church in Medina. Pray for Shoreline’s new youth pastoral resident, Brandon Sherr as he builds relationships with the students and parents of Shoreline as well as with local schools in the community. Pray that all their church attenders might be encouraged to share their faith with family, neighbors, and coworkers. Pray that the ladies who attended their women's conference last month will be encouraged to live out their faith in their daily lives. Youth for Christ is excited that the state lock-up in Massillon has been added to their existing prison ministry at Green Road (State) and Quincy (County) and that over 80 young men have already made first-time decisions for Christ through this key ministry. Pray that God will continue to draw young men and women to himself. India (Asia). Population: 1,367,224,576, Believers: 2.2%. India has more unreached individuals than any other nation. Christians in India are unequally spread—the south and northeast have a much higher proportion of Christians than the more populated north and west. Thirteen states in North India are less than 1% Christian. Pray that the Church worldwide might rise to this task. Training Christian workers is an important need that is immediately urgent and essential in the long-term. The life and health of the church depend on the proper development of pastors, teachers, evangelists, and missionaries. In churches, poor discipling and lack of teaching and modeling of biblical life and leadership are problems. There are over 100,000 full-time workers in India; about half are pastoring local churches. There is, on average, one trained pastor for every six congregations. From Operation World DVD-ROM 2010,
