Today in our prayer time let’s pray for Steve and Toni Chambers, two of our North American missionaries planting a new church in New York City. New York is our biggest city — hundreds of new churches are needed. That’s why our church supports Steve and Toni through our Cooperative Program giving to serve there.
They are serving on Manhattan, more specifically on the Upper West Side, between Central Park and the Hudson River. Like all New York, this area is filled with people from every part of the world and it’s likely that about 96 percent of them are lost and do not know Jesus.
Steve and Toni moved from Alabama to plant Grace City Church. Along with worship services and home group meetings, they often meet on the street or in a park so they can start conversations with people. It takes time to know people well enough to share the gospel. Eighteen months of discussions helped one student accept Christ as Savior.
Let’s pray for Steve and Toni — and that their church will reach thousands of New Yorkers for Christ.
