Regional Home Missions Coordinator Mike Diercks has met with the overseeing sessions and committees of the presbytery’s mission works to complete an annual review of progress toward becoming new and separate congregations. It is exciting that Firelands Grace OPC in Sandusky, OH has called two men to serve as elders and Rev. Larry Oldaker to be their pastor. Pray for this work as they continue to grow in love and unity. Along with supporting the existing mission works, Mike is helping two new emerging works (Sharon, PA and Fairmont, WV) on building their core group members. Ask the Lord to add to these core groups and further the work according to his plans and purposes. Mike is currently working with two groups who have inquired about becoming possible church plants. Pray for wisdom for future interactions and planning. Finally, Mike is serving the committee and presbytery by organizing an evangelism conference on May 30, 2020 with Rev. Eric Hausler as the keynote speaker. Ask the Lord to guide these plans, and to be with Mike as he ever seeks to wisely balance his time between his work and church ministry.
