Thank you for your faithful prayers for church planters. Today, we invite you to pray WITH them in addition to praying FOR them. Here are a few people our planters are praying for. (We're withholding their full names since these are people who don't necessarily know they are the subject of many prayers.)
C. is recently divorced.
A. is battling loneliness.
M. & I. are seeking.
The C. family used to be in ministry but were burned by church and church people. They are reconnecting with God's family through a small group.
The A. family are open to praying with one of our planters, but are not yet comfortable stepping into a church.
The J. family is involved in a small group. One of them lost one parent recently and will lose the other one soon.
M.G. is recently divorced, seeking relationships and healing.
J. is new in town and looking for a place to belong.
W. is trying to reconcile what she wants to believe with how she's seen the church respond to homosexuals.
A. used to be actively seeking, but has walked away without explanation.
L. is an agnostic who is facing a severe health crisis.
K. made some bad choices that estranged her from her children. She is surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus this Sunday.

At least twice a year, Kairos assembles a team of interviewers to lead a group of young church leaders and potential church planters through a discovery process to assess their readiness to step into ministry.
This weekend, 8 candidates will gather with the Kairos team for a intensive week of interviews, but their work started weeks or months ago as they filled out extensive applications, underwent a series of assessments, and gathered references and sermons that show our team a pattern of how God has already been using them.
Please pray with us for:
God to speak clearly into the lives of these young leaders
The interview team to listen and hear the Spirit's leading
God to raise up leaders for churches and ministries across the nation
If you think this discovery process sounds like something you need to do, start with a self-assessment and we'll be in touch with you.
