MIO Devotions: Day 6 IBSA Staff

Lisa Misner —  September 18, 2015

This is the Week of Prayer for the Mission Illinois Offering. Pray for our missionaries and that we will reach the $475,000 statewide offering goal.

Whether they travel the state for conferences and training events, or specialize in behind-the-scenes work from Springfield, IBSA staff members are called to one mission: helping equip church leaders for missions and evangelism.

Pray: For IBSA executive director Nate Adams and IBSA’s five teams: Church Communications, Church Consulting, Church Cooperation, Church Planting and Church Resources.

Pray for staff members who are often on the road: for Sylvan Knobloch as he helps improve the spiritual health of churches; for Steve Hamrick as he guides church leaders in the areas of worship and technology; and for Rex Alexander as he leads the state’s 1,600 Disaster Relief volunteers.

Pray for leaders who work alongside IBSA staff to equip individuals and churches in areas including chaplaincy (Dan Lovin) and prayer (Phil Miglioratti). Pray also for Philip Hall (Lake Sallateeska) and Nick Candler (Streator) as they direct ministries at IBSA’s two camp facilities.

Take time to pray today
