Faith, Missions, and Prayer

This may sound simple, but missions doesn't happen without prayer.  Prayer not only helps missionaries get to the mission field, but prayer sustains them while they are there.  This year, as part of our FAITH Missions Offering, take time to pray for our missionaries in North America and around the world.  Below is a guide to help you know how to pray for our missionaries and church planters.
