Let’s pull on our boots and head to Phoenix, Arizona, for our prayer time. That’s where JC and Sylvia Nava are planting a new church called My City Church Phoenix. Our church is helping plant that new church — because our Cooperative Program dollars are helping support JC and Sylvia.
We probably think of Phoenix as a city in the desert that’s mostly retired people. Well, the desert part is true. But the average age for people in Phoenix is 32 — which is younger than the national average. Sadly, Phoenix also knows less about the Bible than almost any other U.S. city. Evangelical churches are few.
That’s why the ministry of JC and Sylvia is important. Many Hispanics live in the Phoenix area. JC and Sylvia came to Phoenix from Mexico, so speak Spanish. But they want to reach all kinds of people, wherever they are from.
JC and Sylvia partner with the Valley Rim Baptist Association of churches in Phoenix, and also with our North American Mission Board.
Spiritual needs are so great in Phoenix, it takes all of us — including our church — to reach the city. Let’s pray now for JC and Sylvia.
