Pray for Our Churches

AtlantaSkylineThe Georgia WMU Executive Board voted unanimously in October 2013 to begin a prayer partnership between Georgia Baptist Churches and Urban Atlanta Church Planters (UACP).  A number of our churches have already committed to partner with our UACPs, but we need more churches to considering being a part of this vital and rewarding ministry.

We are asking that, after receiving support from your pastor, you will lead your church to prayerfully consider a one-year commitment to a prayer partnership with one of our church planters. There are currently 34 UACPs and we now have 16 of these assigned to one of our Georgia Baptist churches – would your church consider partnering with one of the remaining 18 church planters? As soon as a response is received we will assign a church planter to your church, send their contact information to you, and give them your contact information.

Our goal for this partnership is to begin and continue strengthening relationships between Georgia Baptist churches and Urban Atlanta Church Planters (UACP) as we take the following steps to:

  1. Share weekly prayer requests and answered prayer with each other to create a growing relationship that encourages the church planter and the partnering church.  (Appoint a prayer partnership liaison to send and receive requests from the church planter.)
  2. During the next four months schedule a visit for your church to prayerwalk your church planter’s ministry site.
  3. During the next four months invite your church planter and his family to share their ministry at your church.
  4. Seek God’s direction to identify specific areas of ministry where your church can be a blessing to encourage your church planter.

Our desire is to host a time of celebration with the church planters and partnership churches later in 2014! If you have any questions or concerns as your church considers this new partnership ministry or to let us know you are ready to partner please contact Mary Laughman, Georgia WMU&WEM State Prayer Coordinator at jm121968@bellsouth.net.
