Mission Illinois Offering Week of Prayer Day 4: Sharing the gospel—together

Lisa Misner —  September 12, 2018

The Sunday after Easter was a thrilling one in Illinois, as more than 400 people were baptized on a single day. Called “One GRAND Sunday,” this statewide evangelism outreach urges Baptist churches to share the gospel with unbelievers, and baptize them once they come to faith in Christ. In our frontier state with its lost millions, churches are finding training and encouragement from the IBSA Evangelism Team as they spread the gospel in all our 102 counties.

Pray for churches and pastors to witness to lost people across Illinois. Pray for IBSA’s Pat Pajak as he preaches and teaches about evangelism. Pray for your church to train witnesses and grow in its commitment to evangelism.
