Jim & Nona's Story:
After Jim graduated from Seminary he took a job in Software engineering in Newport News, Virginia. While we were there he volunteered at Yorkminster Baptist Church helping with Christian Education and Discipleship. In June of 2009 we moved to Benzonia, Mi. Jim worked as a Software Engineer there also. He continued to hear the call to ministry and in February 2010 he accepted the call to serve as Pastor at Grace Community Church in Pellston, Michigan. This is a struggling little church which has been through several church splits. There is a lot of poverty and substance abuse in this area. Over half the population here is unchurched.
- Pray for encouragement to our core congregation. They all work very hard in this ministry to keep it going. Pray that they would be bolder in sharing the Gospel with the lost here.
- Pray for new believers here that they would become steadfast in faith and regular attendees of fellowship.
- Pray for the substance abusers we work with that there would be true transformation in their lives.
- Pray for all the single moms here. They desperately need Jesus.
- Pray for the Pantry Ministry that we reach the folks who attend with the Gospel.
- Pray for the Dinner and Discipleship ministry that we hold in our home that it would continue to reach those who do not feel comfortable in a formal church setting.
- Pray for the new ministry we have started in Mackinaw City with the Jamaican population. Pray that is will grow and be strong.
- Pray for encouragement for Pastor Jim and Nona. Sometimes this ministry is very frustrating.
Ways to Support/Needs:
- We use Holman New Testaments and soft cover bibles to hand out in our evangelical work here.
- We also have tracts available for people who attend our pantry. The pantry is a large part of the ministry here. Donations to the pantry are always appreciated.
- We use movies as part of our ministry for our teens and we show a Christian Movie while the pantry is in session.
