Sunday Highlight: November 7
Today in our prayer time we want to pray for a young woman named Brittany Hall. Now, Brittany wears two hats: First, she is a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. That’s one of the six seminaries our church helps support through our Cooperative Program giving. So she’s preparing for a lifetime of Christian ministry.
Second, though, she is already serving at a new church in New York City, Jackson Heights Community Church. This church is in the Jackson Heights section of Queens. Services are held on the second floor of a Pakistani restaurant. People from around the world — speaking more than 160 languages — live nearby. Jackson Heights Community is a multicultural church that wants everyone to know Jesus, regardless where they’re from. Brittany leads worship, works with young people and shares her faith with Muslim women every day.
All our Southern Baptist seminaries have great serve-and-study options like this. What Brittany learns in class today, she may use in a witnessing situation tomorrow. Let’s pray for Brittany as she serves in New York City. And let’s thank God for Southeastern Seminary, our school that is equipping her to be effective in ministry.
Thank you for learning more about the ways your church’s gifts through the Cooperative Program are the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Connect the offering plate to the mission field with “52 Sundays” resources.
