Today in our prayer time, indirectly we're going to pray for the future of television. Sometimes we see what's on TV and we wish programs were more in keeping with Christian values. Today we are going to pray for DJ Jenkins who might help that happen.
DJ prepared for ministry at Gateway Seminary of the Southern Baptist Convention, whose main campus is at Ontario, California. That's one of the six Southern Baptist seminaries our church supports through our Cooperative Program giving - so we invested in his ministry. In 2014 DJ planted a new church called Anthology Church. It meets in Studio City. That's a part of Los Angeles where films and TV shows have been produced for many years.
Here's where Marshall Matt Dillon fought bad men on "Gunsmoke" and the CBS studio where Mary Tyler Moore pretended to be in Minneapolis. About 40,000 people live in Studio City and many of them work on the films and TV programs watched by millions of Americans. The church wants to reach these storytellers.
Let's pray for DJ and the growing church he leads. Let's pray that the church will reach many, so one day the stories they tell will reflect Jesus Christ.Download PDF
