Pray for the leaders attending the “ReGroup Church Leadership Seminar” at New Life Church in Castlegar, B.C., from September 20 to 21. May they be equipped, encouraged and empowered as their leadership skills are developed and sharpened. Ask God to inspire and encourage them as they connect with one another and with Him. May God use what they learn to help them grow, strengthen their churches, and reach their communities for Christ.



Youth pastors will be attending the Fall Forum on September 19 at Glad Tidings Church in Sudbury, Ontario. May God use what they learn to help them grow and build great teams in the youth ministries they serve. Pray that He will also use what they experience to encourage them and impart wisdom moving forward. Pray also that these youth leaders will continue to be empowered in their God-given gifts and talents to make an even greater kingdom impact in the lives of youth.



May God pour out His Spirit in a vibrant and powerful way throughout churches and ministries across Canada this fall season. Pray that congregations will grow in their understanding of the Word, in their relationship with God, in their relationships with one another, and in their passion and desire to reach their communities for Christ. Pray that many people will encounter God in a new, fresh and loving way and decide to follow Jesus, and that they will be empowered by His Spirit. Pray also that pastors, leaders, staff and volunteers who serve will be encouraged and strengthened, and that God will bless them with wisdom and guide them in making a tremendous spiritual impact.


Brian & Valerie Rutten


May God bless and spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically strengthen Brian and Valerie as they minister to the people around them in Ethiopia. Pray that He will guide them with wisdom and direction as they work on leadership training, development of Christian communities, and relief and development in the region. Pray also that God will protect Brian and Valerie, and all of the national leadership as they serve.
