Indianapolis, IN is often regarded as a booming metropolis, reaching forward to prosperity in the Midwest. The communities fraught with cyclical poverty and gang violence, however, are easily overlooked. Join us in our servant relationship with Shepherd Community Center as we help engage youth living in inner-city poverty. Whether working with children’s’ minds in the classroom, their relationship with Christ in the church, or helping to improve the environment surrounding them by getting your hands dirty, you can effectively help bring prosperity to an urban community in need through this ministry.
- Pray that we would effectively share the love of Christ through our actions and words.
- Pray that we would have open eyes and ears of how God wants to use us and why he has each one of us on the trip.
- Pray that we would be able to identify with the individuals we work with at Shepherd and that they would identify with us, being able to move past any potential barriers on either side.
- Pray that those we work with would become so dear to us that we would be delighted to share not only the gospel of God but our lives as well (1 Thessalonians 2:8).
