Prayer Requests

Please continue to pray for Christian Union as it is in the midst of an important hiring season for the ministry. Christian Union is seeking ministry fellows to join its ministry faculty, a vice president for the university side of the ministry, a vice president of development as well as other key hires in the coming weeks.

Please also continue to pray for the 2016 graduates who are in the process of moving to New York and other major cities this summer. Pray for these men and women to quickly find new spiritual community and mentoring relationships, and that they continue to develop in their understanding of how integrating faith and work are essential to flourishing in life.

Please pray that God would continue to provide wisdom and insight now that the beta phase has ended. Pray for the relaunch later this year, that God would guide the planning and next steps.
