"MONDAY NIGHT MISSION" ZOOM FORUM

Monday Night Mission brings you into conversation with our Mission Partners around the world. What are their challenges, how does God sustain them, and how may you engage?

In our first forum, we heard from Pastor James Byensi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo regarding the guerrilla warfare, staggering violence, and millions of displaced refugees that surrounds them. 

WATCH the recorded Zoom, share it, and stay tuned for upcoming sessions.

PRAY for protection, discernment, and resources throughout the DRC and for Pastor James.
