How to Pray

  • For men to accept the call to full and part-time pastoral ministry in Arizona.
  • For churches to embrace an “uttermost part of the world” heart in Sub-Sarahan Africa.
  • For effectiveness in helping Arizona Mission Network churches reach their communities through church re-planting and evangelism.
