Dear praying friends,

Thank you for continuing to lift up Dr. Richard and RREACH. As 2017 gets underway, we have a number of Dallas GPA-related requests to share, in addition to needs in several other areas of the RREACH ministry.

2017 Dallas GPA

Join us in praising God for the 24 pastors who have been accepted. Nine have obtained visas! Also, all of our Master Coaches are scheduled.

For the Dallas GPA pastors, please intercede for these needs:

  • For favor in scheduling visa appointments, and that visas would be issued
  • Pastors’ fundraising for their flights and visa fees
  • Pastors’ churches in preparing for their pastor’s extended absence
  • Pastors’ continual community-building on social media
  • Pastors’ response to the admissions team for needed items

For Dallas GPA staff, please pray for:

  • Continual learning in our new database system for admissions
  • Editing and filming of new admissions videos for the incoming pastors

Even as Dallas GPA preparations increase, a flurry of activity is happening across RREACH’s three strategies. Please join us in prayer in the following ways:

Ministry training

Dr. Richard recently skyped with GPA Romania. Delegates there request prayer for unity and for protection for their churches, families and health as they are away.

GProCommission for Trainers of Pastors (the four-year follow up to the GProCongress) has key meetings at the end of this month with a number of people traveling in from around the world. Pray for efficiency, humility and unity at the meetings, and that they would yield abundant fruit toward the follow-up effort.

Also, the GProCommission team is working hard to set up a platform of wide and deep, globally-sourced resources on GProConneXt.com. This resources platform should roll out soon. Pray for excellence in every area of the planning and launch of this important element of the four-year follow up.

Finally, pray for ongoing dialogue and collaboration between traditional and non-traditional pastoral training leaders. Pray specifically for mid-February meetings that will bring these two groups together.

Media outreach

Please pray for Dr. Richard as he prepares messages for upcoming Media Outreach video talks.
