Please pray for me as I finish my last unit of clinical pastoral education (CPE) and prepare for my next duty as the Command Chaplain for Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms, Calif., in October. I am currently finishing my chaplain residency at a VA post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) domiciliary called the ASPIRE Center where I minister with another chaplain to homeless veterans suffering with PTSD. Many also have substance abuse issues. The fields are truly white unto harvest! My wife, Tammy, has also gone back to school for a certification in phlebotomy and hopes to find a job in the area when we move. We will also be finishing our time helping with the Pillar Church San Diego church plant. Please pray for us as we complete the work God gave us to do in San Diego and prepare for the new work in Twentynine Palms. God bless you for your prayers!
Mapes Baptist Church is located in a somewhat remote area of northern British Columbia. We are growing, especially in the number of families who have kids. Many unchurched kids are attending our Kids’ events, and we are in need of a children’s minister. Please pray God will send just the right person to serve Him here. Thank you.
Please pray that our lives, family and ministry will continue to promote the message of the gospel and the lordship of our King Jesus. Pray that the Lord will order our steps as we make decisions regarding the growth of His kingdom. Pray that He will meet all our needs, the needs of the ministry and the needs of our members.

Please continue to pray for God’s continual strengthening of my marriage, His continual protection and salvation of our two elementary-age children and the health of my in-laws. Please pray that God would work through Realm Church to bear much gospel fruit in Oakland and that many would come to know Jesus as we share the beautiful gospel with the many ethnic groups living in the Bay Area. Please pray that God would send more faithful and willing laborers to work within Realm Church and others who will partner with Realm through prayer, giving and coming to serve on short-term trips. Please pray that Realm would abide in Christ, remain unified and grow in deeper love of God and love of neighbor. Please pray that we would balance life, work and ministry well. Thank you.
Praise God, we are now allowed to return to Grandview Elementary School to worship on Sunday mornings! Please pray for our summer Kids Camps and the connections we are making with families.

Please pray God would send mature believers who are in different stages of life to join our ministry work at Discovery Church, as our young families are stretched thin trying to do it all. Also, please pray God will provide an associate pastor.
Please continue to pray for the deaf community as COVID-19 has brought a lot of fear and anxiety. Pray they will have the peace that God gives in difficult times.

I have an unspoken prayer request. The Lord knows what it is. Please pray He would grant my request quickly.
We are rapidly growing and looking for a permanent place to meet that can seat at least 200 people. Please help us pray for direction as we look for the perfect place.
Doing campus ministry in Vermont has been challenging but fruitful during the pandemic. My wife, Monica, and I are reaching students on two campuses. Before the pandemic we lost some of our staff, and now it is just us. As the restrictions on our campuses lift, we need new laborers but have no prospects currently. Pray God would send new laborers for our ministry to college students in Vermont.
Church Renewal ministry was very strong before the coronavirus shut down many of our churches. Pray that as churches open, they would consider Church Renewal sessions as a wonderful way to bring people together in unity and worship.
Please pray as we move into other communities with the gospel. Pray as we lead Bible Clubs in the communities of Peetz, Colo., and Potter, Neb. Pray as we follow up and that the Lord would move in these rural areas. Pray as we launch a rural church planting residency this fall. Pray God would provide the resources and that He would bless those who will be participating. Pray for Sean, who is being pulled back into a 1% (outlaw) biker club. Pray for the family of Cheyenne, a young lady who recently took her life. Pray for us as a church as we minister to her friends and family.
Please pray for Relationships Indian Community Church as we are share the gospel with non-Christians. Pray that God will open new doors to ministry. Pray for the safety and growth of our church as we work within the Indian community.
We have a GenSend team here with us this summer. Pray that God continues to give them His favor as they build relationships in the community. Also, we have secured space for our first worship preview service in the Hartley House, which is a community center in our neighborhood. Pray for our relationship with them as we meet in their auditorium to worship for the first time in person! Pray all the details and resources will come together as we begin the launch of our church and our first worship services.
