Our 16:5 Conference starts today! Here are some things for which you could pray:
- Pray that the conference would be an encouragement to those who attend.
- Pray for our staff who is doing a majority of the speaking at the general sessions and breakouts.
- Thank God for the volunteers from Northridge who are giving up two days to encourage these pastors and church leaders.
- Pray that we will be humble in our approach. In no way do we want to appear to have the answers. We want to be more eager to learn than to teach, and we just want to share what God has taught us, and all the while be passionate about the command that we all pursue the Great Commission along with the humility to know that we don't have "the" way to do that.
- Pray for the encouragement of pastors. It seems more pastors are discouraged than encouraged these days. I want us to encourage them in their calling, passion, and ministry.
- With me… thank God for the team at Northridge (staff and volunteers) who are so committed to the Great Commission that they make great sacrifices to invest in that mission. What a joy!
