Pray for DOVE USA

Ron & Bonnie Myer
DOVE USA Apostolic Team leaders

The USA team is comprised of Steve Fricke, Deryl and Mim Hurst, and Steve Prokopchak.

2023 was a year of excitement along with challenges and growth. The theme for the four regional gathering in October of 2023 was “High Expectations – Courageous Faith”. We are excited about the new things that are unfolding for DOVE USA. We truly need to hear from the Father the next steps that He has for us. We are so grateful to the Lord for the amazing growth that is taking place in existing congregations as well as a number of micro churches being planted. There is also a new community church set to launch on Easter Sunday and we are super excited about the strategy that has led to this church plant. The Youth Resources have experienced tremendous impact among this generation and hosted the largest ever youth winter retreat in PA.

Pray for:

  • A continuous outpouring on our youth and young adults as we position ourselves to raise up the next generation of leaders.
  • DOVE missions and Youth Resources as they are partnering in a Youth missions trip to Guatemala in June.
  • 100 partner churches in the USA by 2025, by either planting or adopting.
  • Each church expression to experience more of the power and presence of Jesus with clear directives from the Holy Spirit on Kingdom expansion and leadership development while seeing those who do not know Him come into a personal relationship.
  • The four regional leadership gatherings throughout the USA in October. Our theme is Presence / Passion / Power.
  • Peter Bunton as he continues to advance our missions focus within the DOVE USA family, serving global missions in short term teams and long term missionaries.
  • Nick Payne as he continues to stir DOVE USA youth to be the forerunners the Lord has called them to be.
  • Developing new apostolic leaders in the USA to be raised up to meet the growing demand for apostolic ministry.
