As you can imagine a Seminary is a VERY important part of church planting. Without well trained leaders there can’t be new church plants. Michael Oh, President of Christ Bible Institute has asked everyone to join CBI for 60 Days of Prayer. I highlight a few points from the post, but if you are interested in the entire post please check out the original post.
1) prayer for the repairs and renovations that begin on our new ministry center on June 6th! It’s been a very complicated and difficult process and the prices have escalated because of a scarcity of construction materials due to the earthquake in Sendai. We need wisdom in what repairs and renovations to do with limited funding.
2) prayer for wisdom about the naming of the center. It’s a lot more complicated than you would think.
3) prayer for funding for earthquake reinforcement of the 1st and 2nd floors. We are praying to the Lord to provide the $130,000 needed for this critical reinforcement work to ensure safety against the Great Tokai Earthquake that is expected to hit our region within the next 30 years and be perhaps the most devastating earthquake Japan has ever experienced.

4) prayer for final approval by the Aichi Prefecture official for the religious non-profit use of our land/building. This should come around the end of July Lord willing.
5) prayer for the ministries that will occupy the new ministry center which will open in September. Future planned ministries include the Heart & Soul Cafe, a new All Nations Fellowship church plant, and various other outreaches and training.
