Mobile International Community

International Ministries Center

Prayer is the start of missions. Through prayer, we gain a heart for missions and the capacity to reach the 66 nations that live in Mobile County. July 28, 2014 at the International Ministries Center, will begin a one year season of prayer for the International Community living in Mobile County. Come enjoy a $5 lunch (benefitting IMC) provided by the MBA WMU Leadership Team, time of prayer, and flag ceremony.

We no longer have to get on an airplane to reach the world. We only need to look at our county and see the 66 different people groups living among us. The Father has brought them to us in order to help them know true love and forgiveness. Prayer is the first step in them knowing Jesus Christ.

Mobile Baptist churches are being asked to consider adopting one of the 66 People Groups that live in Mobile? Your adoption of a People Group means your church will regularly pray for that nationality for one year. Churches are encouraged to be creative and think of unique ways to keep the adopted People Group in prayer. Prayer is the main thing!

For a visual reminder, churches are also being asked to consider purchasing two flags of the adopted nation. One flag is to be placed in a prominent place in your church building. The second flag will be hung at the International Ministries Center. Each flag will remind our own churches and other churches to pray salvation for the specific peoples the Lord has brought to our city.
