In the late 1960s, and throughout the 70s, many growing churches had bus ministries. If you heard the words “Bus Ministry” – you would envision concerned and loving church members visiting on Saturday and running bus routes on Sunday. They would pick up children (whose parents were not attending church) and many of these children came to know Christ—and some of their families eventually trusted Christ. But over the years most Bus Ministries died out—for lots of reasons.
This week I heard two great stories that involved buses in the big city. I found myself chuckling and saying, “now that’s a different kind of bus ministry.”
I thought I would share these stories with my prayer network and it might give you ideas about how to pray for church planters and the cities where they serve. The methods may change because of time and location–but the Message of Christ still transforms lives.
Check back the next couple of days I’ll share these stories with you. For today—pray for one of the big cities in North America where lots of people use public transportation.
