FrikirkeNet's Church Planters Day at Kolding

This Saturday, January 28, a number of older and newer church planters will be gathering at the Church Center (Kirke Center) in Kolding, southern Jutland, for a day of inspiration and networking. Church Planters Day initiators Svend Løbner and Bent Bjerring-Nielsen, themselves both experienced and successful church planters, will be among those who will help shed light on starting new churches. The day's gatherings will offer inspiration for established churches to concentrate on starting new churches throughout the country. Pastors Løbner and Bjerring-Nielsen have much to offer those new to church planting ministry. Opportunity will be given for questions and the sharing of experiences and new ideas. This is just the sort of initiative that this Pray for Denmark wbepage is committed to support in prayer and we heartily commend the January 28 gathering to our readers and their prayers for its success. We are persuaded that evangelism and church planting go hand in hand. We also believe that the growth of evangelical free churches in Denmark depends upon the Spirit's working through aggressive evangelism and new church plants.

PRAY that the Church Planters Day at Kolding will ignite a new spirit of enthusiasm and commitment among Danish believers to evangelistic outreach and the planting of new churches.

PRAY that the experience of church planting pioneers Svend Løbner and Bent Bjerring-Nielsen will set the tone for the day and assure attendees that the planting of new churches is not as impossible a task as some might imagine.

PRAY that the opportunities of the day for networking and for free sharing of experiences and ideas on processes and procedures will provide affirmation and encouragement to new church planters to do their ministry in the power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit.

PRAY that the impetus and inspiration of this important gathering will flow into all of the free church denominations in Denmark in a way that will contribute to revival and renewal in the older established churches.

PRAY above all that the Lord Jesus Christ, the great Head of the Church, will be honored and glorified through this wonderful networking opportunity, and that the Holy Spirit will preside in power over all that takes place.

Note: The writer, Bill Hunter, apologizes for the delay in posting timely prayer requests. He is recuperating from major surgery that he had on December 29. The Lord our Healer is good and faithful as always. We appreciate our faithful prayer partners. We are always encouraged when we hear from you who have joined with us in this prayer ministry on behalf of God's work in Denmark.
