    Praise for the freedoms we enjoy in the United States of America!  Thank you Lord for the military men and women who serve to keep our country safe and strive to help others around the world.  Praises for the freedom to gather and worship God without fear of persecution.  

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Pray for retired NWBC Church Planting Director Bevan McWhirter (Gary Irby's predecessor) and his wife Joyce.  Pray for God to bless their family, and the churches that they still assist, such as their home congregation, Go Church.  Today is Bevan's birthday!

  • Pray for Planter Kevin Gibbs and Discovery Church Seattle (Greenwood / Phinney Ridge Neighborhoods) as they seek to reach their community with the Gospel.   Pray for open doors for conversations that lead to transformed lives.

    Pray for Rebecca, and their sons - Barrett (Bear) and Cameron.

  • Pray for the many missions teams that are coming to the Northwest this summer to serve alongside our church plants.  Pray they would be effective in helping the church plants build relationships in their communities and make connections on a larger scale than they can do alone.  Pray the trips will spur a greater understanding of the need in the NW, and stir hearts of future church planters/leaders/team members.  Pray also the church plants would be blessed and encouraged by these partnerships.

  • Pray for Ryan Paterson and A Church Family Network (CFN).  CFN is a multiplying network of churches in Vancouver/Portland and beyond.  Pray for their residency program, as they raise up new planters from within.  Pray for them to be successful in multiplying churches, cohorts and gospel teams.  Ryan is a co-vocational planter, so pray for opportunities for him to bring the Gospel to the workplace as well as to his community.

    Pray for Ryan's family - wife Rebecca, and kids Ashlyn, Caleb, Eli, Addy and Cora.

  • Pray for Dr. Gary Floyd. Gary oversees Northwest Disaster Relief, Associational Relations, and Chaplaincy. Pray for him as he directs these ministries. Pray for church planting leaders to be raised up to work alongside Disaster Relief to build upon the relational investment the DR teams make in a community. Pray for the next generation of leaders to step forward for DR ministry. Pray for the many Directors of Missions, Moderators, and Chaplains that Gary serves and supports. 

    Pray for Gary's wife Dianne, their kids, and grandkids.
