The church in Orlando has two specific needs: the strengthening of the leadership and a full-time campus team. Of course, the church would benefit from strengthening all age groups, from college students to couples who can open their homes. However, there is a definite need for one or preferably two additional brothers to coordinate in taking the lead in the church. It is crucial that at least one of the brothers be bilingual in Spanish and English. Regarding a full-time campus team, Orlando is home to the largest university in the United States—the University of Central Florida (UCF). There are more than 77,000 students enrolled at other colleges. The brothers in Orlando are actively looking for a new meeting place in the UCF area.
Conference & City Tour
Although the scheduled conference and city tour in Orlando has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please continue to pray for the saints in Orlando and the Lord's interests in this city.
- Pray for the burden for 30 saints to migrate to Orlando over the next two years, and that the church in Orlando would be ready to receive them.
- Pray for open homes for the students (both new and remaining), and the strengthening of our own students to bear remaining fruit.
