As we review the past few months and look ahead to what’s next, our team is bursting with praise at how emphatically the Lord has confirmed our focus of going “deeper” as His will for us in this season. It calls to mind that little rhyme: “April showers bring May flowers”. The Lord has sent forth His provision and word like a nourishing spring rain and we are seeing things bloom in every part of our ministry.
Here’s what we’ve been up to lately…
Empowering community leaders, students and young adults to set an example (1 Timothy 4:12) for the body of Christ by raising up pureHOPE advocates, ministering on college campuses, training partner ministries, and interviewing, selecting and preparing to welcome a new class of interns who will join us for a summer of deeper discipleship.
Strengthening relationships between parents and their children by hosting Quest: Parenting in a Sexualized Culture conferences and study groups at churches and Christian schools across the country and inviting individuals and couples to host parlor meetings and share pureHOPE with their families and communities.
Spending time with Pastor Elias from Togo, West Africa and gearing up to join him and other international leaders in the capital city Lomé for a conference on the Word, prayer and the pursuit of purity.
Your prayers, support and advocacy are going a long way to open the floodgates of freedom from shame, fortify the church against the schemes of the enemy, and deepen our collective pursuit of a lifestyle of prayer, understanding, resolve and engagement. We eagerly anticipate more and more of what God has for us in this year!
