Get Involved

Join us in creating positive change in communities today.

We would love for you to Intersect with our partners whether it’s as a champion for them on social media or getting involved by supporting them in the work they’re doing in their neighborhoods. 

Opportunities For Intersection

Every intersection we have with a partner feels like a gift. As much as we love those, our most important and impactful intersection is with our Heavenly Father. As we continue to serve these leaders, we ask if you could be lifting us up in prayer, specifically:

CrossTown Ministries

  • Pray that we can meet the academic need of our students with high quality tutoring, especially in the area of reading.
  • Pray that our students would mature from the discipleship they are receiving from us now, so that it will yield fruit for years to come.
  • Pray for our men’s discipleship group that has started this semester, that the men who are coming would reestablish their lives in healthy soil and commit to maturing.
  • Pray that hope would be ignited in the hearts of those who are hopeless in our community. This is the first step to being discipled out of their unhealthy surroundings.

Hope For Augusta

  • Pray that the Lord would provide the additional staffing needed for our after-school program in the New Year. 

  • Pray for wisdom and guidance for HFA staff as we pray and plan for the Spring and Summer.

  • Pray that the families involved with HFA would experience a good meal, fellowship, and the love of Christ at our upcoming Christmas Banquet. 

Parker Street Ministries (Alumni Partner)

  • PSM is praying for God to send the right individuals, who have a heart for this neighborhood, to fill gaps in our after-school program

Redeemer Community Church

  • Pray that God would continue to connect us to more community members through efforts and programs geared around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  • Pray for our Discipleship Groups: We recently rolled out a new discipleship program and a BUNCH of new groups have started in the last month!

Summerhill Community Ministries

  • Pray for students (some under the age of 12) that are contemplating suicide. Both social media and negative/destrutive behavior and comments from peers have been influences of this. Pray for SCM staff as they navigate this with the parents.

  • Please pray that we will continue to receive funds to keep our food pantry open. Our food requests and applications for food and assistance are growing, but our pantry is running low.

  • Please pray that the heart of our youth would be tenderized and open to the gospel. Pray for their individual home struggles and challenges.

  • Pray that our evangelism, discipleship and outreach ministries will be fruitful in the lives of those we serve.

 

We would love for you to intersect with our partners whether it’s as a champion for them on social media or getting involved by supporting them in the work they’re doing in their neighborhoods.
