As we near the halfway point of 2020, we can look back on what has already been a historically challenging year. It makes us all the more grateful for you who pray and give for the establishment of new churches, and for the leaders that are serving communities around the world.

Last month, we shared some of the many ways that church plants are engaging and serving people in their neighborhoods during the pandemic. This month, we are more thankful than ever for the nearly 4000 of you who receive these updates and pray for these new churches and leaders.

As you pray now for justice and peace in the cities where we serve, perhaps this recent message from Renaissance Church in Harlem can help form your prayers:

Jordan Rice is lead pastor at Renaissance Church in Harlem, and he serves as NYC Region Director for Orchard Group
