Thank you for your prayers and support of my ministry trip to West Africa. I just completed a week in Nigeria. Here are some of the key answers to prayer:

  • The national leadership team that leads over 10,000 churches has set plans in place to train all of their youth ministry leaders, starting with 3 trainings in July led by those I trained on this trip. These trainings will cover the three main regions of Nigeria and will be the start of getting the grass-roots leaders trained.
  • Pastors who attended the trainings are committing to go and train other pastors and church leaders. This is part of the globalLead expansion beyond youth ministry.
  • There was a cry for us to bring our Heart of the Leader training to Nigeria in the future. I taught a section on the Inner Life of the Christian Leader and many followed that up with a request for more.
  • Beyond Nigeria, this group assists several other nations’ ministry departments by going to encourage and train them. We have started to discuss how this group can expand beyond Nigeria soon!
  • I have also been able to speak at 3 separate church and leadership services, ranging from 100 to 500 in attendance.

I am writing now from Accra, Ghana. Please pray for the ministry this week as I lead a discussion day for a top leadership group who can likely be future trainers. I will follow this up with a 3-day training, titled Ministry Team Strategy. This is open for all areas of ministry!

Please also continue to pray for our needed support to sustain these growing ministries around the globe. 

Thank you for your part in praying for and supporting His global ministry!
