  • United Christian Fellowship joins The Sending Alliance!

    We are glad to announce that United Christian Fellowship has joined The Sending Alliance! This is a Sudanese church that meets in two locations: near the downtown airport and also in the NE KC, MO area.

    This church is led by Pastor Gabriel Riak (in photo at left). James Ater (in photo at right) is the Communications Coordinator and a mission leader for the church, and he is serving as The Sending Project Liaison for this Arabic-speaking community of Jesus followers.

    James came to the USA in November of 1993. After a couple of months in Houston, he moved to the Kansas City area and has lived here since that time. He's been involved in the Sudanese church since he first arrived in the USA.

    United Christian Fellowship is focused on helping other Arabic speakers experience the love and truth of Jesus
    If you would like to learn more about this church and its missional activity, please contact James at: ater_james@yahoo.com
    They are looking for a different place to meet...a place large enough to accommodate their entire congregation. Please pray for God to meet this need.

    Pastors and church mission leaders: hopefully, you can meet James and Gabriel at an upcoming Sending Network gathering. Check The Sending Project website calendar for more details.

    Blessings to you!

    Executive Director

  • KC Prayer Bus Makes Inaugural Journey

    Clint Hall, The Sending Project's Director of Church Relations,

    is the driver of the Prayer Bus Ministry. (figuratively and literally!)

    KC Prayer Bus Makes Inaugural Trip

    The Sending Project (TSP) Prayer Bus made its inaugural journey around the KC metro area on Saturday morning April 26, stopping at Paseo Baptist, The Oasis, and Indian Creek Community Church. The Prayer Bus is a unique element of The Sending Project prayer ministry...which overall is focused on praying for the mission ministries of KC-area churches and their mission partners.

    Marcia Neuenswander, Sending Project Prayer Team Coordinator, reflects on the Prayer Bus adventure: "It was overwhelming to be a part of so many prayers being lifted up for such a great number of KC churches and their mission ministries. It was such a unique and beautiful experience to actually pray together on the bus and as a group right there on the property of three different churches."

    The group on the Prayer Bus had a great time praying at each of these churches and also talking and praying on the bus as they traveled from location to location.

    Pastor Gary Kendall (2nd from right, in the photo below), met the Prayer Bus at his church, Indian Creek, and prayed with the group!

    Stay tuned for the announcement about when the next Prayer Bus event will be!

    If you would like to join The Sending Project Prayer Team, please let us know by replying to this email and we will add you to the Prayer Team email list. As a TSP Prayer Team member, you will receive mission-related prayer requests via email.

    Expecting great things from God...
