Dr. Doug Witherup
Pray for our 2020 Word: Yes! Hebrews 11:39-40 says, “39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us.”
A life of faith looks like saying “Yes.” Faith is not believing that God can do something. Faith is believing that God can do something through me. What could God do through me?
Pray that we would give God our best yes. Pray that we would be filled with faith for the future. Pray that we would have faith to believe that God will accomplish great things through us.
Southeastern University Focus

God is doing great things regarding the future of SEU Concord. Pray as the students return to school that they will return with eager hearts and minds. As we enter 2020 we are seeking God’s direction for the future of SEU Concord. We are positioned to be the leader of experiential education in the Southeast Untied States. Simply put this will help us reach more students, which in turn helps us reach more people for Christ. We ask God to give our leadership a supernatural level of wisdom and knowledge to make God ordained decisions as we continue to raise up a generation of world changers.
Family Life Focus
Pastors Ryan, Mikayla, Justin, Wesley
Please join us in prayer for the students and faculty of this month’s featured schools: Patriots Elementary School, A.T. Allen Elementary School, Harris Road Middle School, and Jay M. Robinson High School. We are praying for these teacher and student bodies to be open for God’s presence; for those who are believers to have boldness to lead their peers in finding life and freedom, and for anointing on the teachers to speak into the next generation. Lastly, please join us on the offensive to pray for your family members that are lost. Pray that they become wide awake to God’s love, and fully alive to the plans God has for them.
Multiply Evangelism Focus
Pastor Marvel Pope
Congregational Care Pastor
When we say yes to God, it also means that we are saying yes to winning the lost and helping to multiply souls within the Kingdom of God. In this year of yes, I encourage you to seek God more than ever to guide you into personal evangelism. Ask the Holy Spirit to be your teacher and to lead and show you how to be an effective soul winner. Say yes to winning the lost. Make 2020 the year of helping others say yes to Jesus!
Pastor Gwen Stowers
Missions and Outreach Pastor
Steve and Kim Sobey are missionaries serving in Nicaragua and El Salvador with the ministry King’s Castle. King’s Castle is a ministry located in 30+ countries looking to raise up the next generation through evangelism, discipleship, and connecting with the local church. Their focus is largely in equipping the national church in both Nicaragua and El Salvador to reach children and youth with the Gospel and disciple them to be Holy Spirit filled believers. Pray for these two countries the enemy constantly tries to take the country by revolts or groups of gangs; pray for these stronghold to be broken. Also pray for the children and youth of these two countries. Often they are caught in generational curses. Pray that God would free them from those curses and bring them into life with Him!

Pray for their future office that will be located in the Cabarrus Dream Center, and that it will be an opportunity to provide services to people right here in our community. We believe that through their services, God’s lost children will be reconciled and provided for in our community and state!
