Have you ever been to Denver, Colorado? It’s a beautiful city near the Rocky Mountains. Today we’re going to pray for two of our North American missionaries who are planting a new church in Denver. They are Derick and Kayla Sherfey — our church supports them through our Cooperative Program giving.
Why does the city need new churches? It’s because few of the Metro Denver’s nearly 5 million people have a relationship with Christ. Derick is pastor of The Oaks Church, a new fellowship meeting in southeastern Denver. The church has set up communities of believers to help with discipleship and outreach. People from some 40 nations speaking around 60 languages live within a mile of the church’s meeting place on East Iowa Avenue.
The Oaks Church also has a helping center that partners with our North American Mission Board and other groups to provide a wide range of ministries, from counseling to help with finding jobs. They currently provide food to more than 50 refugee families each week.
Let’s pray now for Derick and Kayla as they minister in Christ’s name and grow that new church in the Mile High City.
