Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries (CIM) and CHIEF Ministries have embarked on a new ministry venture called BUILD. It stands for Biblical United Indigenous Leadership Development. BUILD recognizes the need to build up Native leaders who lack the means and/or the time to leave their homes and churches for extended periods of time to pursue ministry training. This April BUILD will send its first team of teachers to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to labor among the Lakota people.
Please pray for strong, united Native churches with strong leadership. Pray that the Spirit of God will go before BUILD to open doors on the reservations and in the cities, in both the U.S. and Canada. Pray that the light of the Native church would so shine that the world would glorify our great God in heaven.
