Pray for DOVE USA

Ron & Bonnie Myer
DOVE USA Apostolic Team leaders

The USA team is comprised of Josh Good, Lee DeMatos, Steve Fricke, Deryl and Mim Hurst, and Steve Prokopchak.

2020 was a challenging and life-changing year as it was everywhere. Our go-to phrase was, “We’ll figure it out!” And with the help of the Holy Spirit, we always did. With constant changes, limitations, directives during continually changing circumstances, the USA churches maintained a “we are building the Kingdom” mindset.

House churches continued to meet for the most part and almost every community church developed an online presence. We are so proud of our amazing leaders and we thank the Lord for their faithfulness in ministering to the needs of people in the ever-changing environment.

We have seen youth ministry increasing dramatically, and each of our regional gatherings throughout the USA have been excellent! We are looking forward with anticipation to all the Lord will do in 2021 as we “Live the Kingdom and Transform the World” around us.

Pray for 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.
