ARP Pastors’ Voices

ARP Pastors’ Voices

CALL TO PRAYER 

At Synod 2018, Alex Pettett, WW Executive Director, challenged ARP delegates to join World Witness in praying for a new generation of missionaries to be sent out by our denomination into the harvest field. 

This prayer challenge, called 2-2-20, denotes asking the Lord that He would raise up and help us identify 2 potential missionaries in each church by the year 2020 – hence 2-2-20. 

With gratitude and praise to God, we have, to date, collected 40 names of potential missionaries! We hope your heart rejoices with ours in this wonderful answer to prayer and in what God will yet do, as we continue to pray.

PRAYER RESPONSES 

Last year, Alex and I made phone calls to ARP pastors, encouraging them in their endeavors, praying for them, and hearing their input regarding the 2?2?20 prayer initiative. The vast number of responses were encouraging and positive. Many expressed a desire to be involved and agreed to have their church listed on our website, in support of this call to prayer. Here is a sampling of their responses:

 “I am so grateful for this 2-2-20 prayer initiative, as it provides a great opportunity to keep developing a culture of biblical fervor for missions in our churches.” 

“I have been praying for this initiative in my pastoral prayers on Sunday mornings at least monthly. In addition, I have made it public through flyers and newsletters to keep it in front of our people.” 

“I pray for 2-2-20 often, also in our worship services. . .. [In our church] I am building the foundation of leadership by training elders, which has never been done before. Three of my elders are very missions-minded.” 

“We always include prayer for 2-2-20 in our Wednesday evening prayer and worship times. The very first item on our prayer list is missionaries.”


 “My church is very supportive of missions (even though there are only about 25 members on roll and in attendance). We support several missionaries and just gave a large gift towards the Christian Hospital Sahiwal in Pakistan. As a result of your phone call, I will preach on Luke 10:2 and explain this prayer initiative.” 

“We have a great, robust, active missions committee and give 10% of our budget to cross-cultural missions. This church has sent several short-term missionaries.” 

“I pray for this daily and will mention it again on Sunday morning during our worship service.” 

“I am committed to praying for this . . .. the church is a strong supporter of World Witness.” 

“We have an elderly congregation, but we will be praying.”

 WE WANT TO HELP YOU 

We have developed resources to help pastors, elders, mission leaders, parents or potential candidates engage in this prayer initiative. They are found on our website: worldwitness.org. In addition, we have prepared various tools that we would be willing to share with your church or missions committee, toward supporting and enhancing your missions program. We would love to visit with you. 

Perhaps the name of someone from your church will soon be added to our current list of 40 potential missionaries. Let’s keep praying. Unified prayer opens hearts and doors, for the glory of God.
