4 ways to pray for the coastal region

September 24, 2018

The Strategic Focus Team works with churches in eight population centers and other areas across the state of North Carolina. The highest concentrations of lost people are found in and around the eight population centers, which are the Blue Ridge, Coastal, Fayetteville, Greenville, Metro Charlotte, Triad, Triangle and Unifour regions.

Although disciple-making efforts have made some progress in these areas, prayer is essential for God’s mission to take place. Would you join us in prayer for these eight population centers, lostness in North Carolina and the many people working together to reach the people across our state?

The coastal population center is located in the southeastern coastal region of North Carolina. This area includes five associations that total 12 counties with more than 730,000 residents. It contains several cities, rural areas, towns and a large military presence.

Pray for:
  1. The Jacksonville area, which is considered one of the youngest cities in America.
  2. Churches and individuals to reach students on the ?eight college campuses.
  3. Open doors to the gospel in multi-housing, in which 95 percent are unchurched.
  4. The unreached people groups throughout the region.

We’re not in Kansas (or Old Town) anymore

“I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” is a classic line from the movie The Wizard of Oz. It’s also a common phrase we use when we feel “out of place.” We sometimes experience that sensation when we’ve lived in one location for many years. Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz,...

Lift up your eyes

Living in the Bible Belt doesn’t make you a disciple

I grew up in the Bible Belt. In those days, almost nobody worked on Sundays. We prayed before class, ball games and meals — even in the name of Jesus — whether we believed it or not. We proudly displayed the Ten Commandments in our courthouses — whether we obeyed them or not....

One approach to reaching the lost in your community

During His earthly ministry, Jesus ministered among crowds, trained 12 disciples and invested deeply in three of His followers — Peter, James and John. Jesus focused on a few in order to ultimately reach the many. What if our churches did the same thing? With an estimated 5.8...
