Ongoing Prayer Requests

Below you’ll find our ongoing prayer requests for the regular ministries we are involved in. Our other prayer page has dated prayer requests where we can also post some of the ways God has answered them.


  • A sound, Bible-believing seminary that annually teaches dozens of students to serve as pastors, missionaries and teachers. Praise for the increasing student numbers, now over 200 students.
  • For a great family with good opportunities for study and service for our daughters Laura and son-in-law Adriaan, and Rebecca.
  • For faithful supporters who have enabled us to serve for over 24 years, and many of whom continue faithfully through the current credit crisis.


  • Praise for the increase in student numbers at the ETF (now just over 200), the seminary where Jack teaches. Pray for the enormoues financial challenges that the school faces in the next few years.
  • Pray for spiritual wisdom as Jack interacts with students in their internships and growth in Christian leadership, and also for developing an international network to study and teach pastoral leadership.
  • Praise for opportunities to share the gospel with people, especially for Pat in her florist work as well as in her creative activities. Pray for courage for both of them to speak openly about the gospel.
  • Pray for Jack to develop profitable research into the future of church leadership, reading, interviewing, presenting and training.
  • Wisdom and sensitivity for Jack to help care for his aging parents with increasing health issues. Jack’s mom is not doing well, and seems to be in the final stages of her sickness. Pray for spiritual refreshment for her as believer even in this difficult period.
  • For our church to expand its outreach in the neighborhood and the city, with renewed enthusiasm for the Lord’s work.
  • Continued support need: still at least $700 a month additional support is needed to be at full support. This has been an ongoing need since 2008.
