Our team is led by Jennifer Terry our gifted youth leader from The Community. She recently remarried and continues to help our students encounter Jesus in many ways.
Jim Hamilton is the pastor of Journey Church in Sioux Falls and is also executive director of the Dakota Baptist Convention. I met Jim in Roanoke last year as he was leading a conference. He is a burley biker kind of dude. Can't wait to serve with Jim and to hear stories of what God is doing in the Dakotas. One of their projects is outreach at the Sturgis Motorcyle rally where thousands gathering annually to party but many hear about and meet Jesus through ministry in a very different location.
Pray four our team. As their pastor, I'm already so proud of them. We still have several hours of travel left today before we arrive in South Dakota. I miss our Community family as they prepare to serve and share through our 4th Saturday feeding the hungry ministry and worship at our 4th Saturday night worship service. Thanks to Josh Waltman, our summer ministry intern, who is making a difference helping The Community.
More news to come. Thanks for your prayers.
