Ministry Moment: Last summer, FCA Maine hosted 63 campers at its first Leadership Camp. Campers were given the opportunity to experience God and deepen their faith, and returned to their schools and communities better equipped to reach others for Christ. The camp received great feedback and plans are underway to replicate it in the Rochester, New York, area in 2017.

Prayer Requests:

1. God’s provision and direction as our number of staff and the Four C’s of ministry continue to grow at a rapid pace.

2. Continued development and growth of the Northeast Region’s Leadership Boards.

3. God’s direction as we look to secure our first staff member in the state of Rhode Island.
