Today in our prayer time let’s go to Minnesota so we can pray for two of our North American missionaries serving there. Jonathan and Melissa Parnell work in St. Paul. Now, St. Paul and Minneapolis sort of run together into one big community called the Twin Cities — home for about three million people. About 13 percent of the residents say they are evangelical, but many more Bible-believing churches are needed.
Here’s why we can be happy our church supports Jonathan and Melissa through the Cooperative Program: since they planted Cities Church in 2015, they have since planted four other new churches! Cities is now a strong, well-staffed church, meeting on Summit Avenue in St. Paul.
Jonathan wants each new church to be committed to discipling believers and multiplying into more new churches across the Twin Cities.
Jonathan and Melissa have served as foster parents to vulnerable children and have adopted some of them. Cities Church also ministers to kids in need. Let’s pray for Jonathan and Melissa as they help bring people to faith in Christ!
