Here are several prayer requests for Team Engel:

  1.  Praise report and prayer request.  The meetings with the Evangelical Covenant Church leadership to discuss how we can partner in planting churches among the urban poor went very well.  The Spirit was in our midst and the outcome is to partner in planting 5 churches among the poor in 2017.  You can now pray for me as I spend time with their assessment team and make preparations for their five teams to participate in our Evangel School of Urban Church Planting.
  2.  January 23-27 will be mobilization meetings at THE OAKS.  I will be communicating to our leadership the Evangel Church Plant Network.  The intent of the network is to bring our church planting efforts into a cohesive process so that our prayers and labors would move more aggressively into a multiplying movement among the poor.  Please pray for open dialogue among the leadership and for a unified agreement that the Evangel Church Plant Network is our way of facilitating church planting movements.
  3.  Please pray for spiritual protection.  I have found myself being more “on edge” since moving into this strategic position within our ministry.  Little things turn into “big” things which cause an inner attitude that I do not like feeling.  Pray Romans 14:17 for me, “For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

Blessings to all the Go Team and the ABC Family.  We love you.
