Weekly Prayer Focus: The "Hub"

Almost two years ago, God laid on Randy’s heart to develop a central focus point for ministry in the city.  It would be a place of discipleship and training.  Now we stand on the edge of this vision becoming a reality. 

We are going forward with what we’re calling the HUB.  It will be a house that Cephas and Biba live in and coordinate ministry from.  It will open the door for tons of ministry options here in the city as well as offering a training center for our believers from outlying villages.

We will also be kicking off our first go at theological education for oral learners in a 12-course curriculum we’re calling NLTS (Niger Leadership Training School).  This will give our illiterate believers some intense theological training to assist them as they lead outreach groups or churches in their villages. 

We are so excited to be standing on the edge of so much possibility.  However, we have not been able to secure a location.  From people refusing to rent to us because of our faith (even in the capital city!!!!) to people jacking up the price when they see our skin we have looked at over a dozen locations in the past 2 months only to come up empty.

Please pray we’ll be able to secure a location ASAP.  Pray that as we do find a location, the HUB will become what we’ve always envisioned:  a launch pad for ministry!
