Chicago is the third largest city in the United States and contains a diverse population of people from all around the world. Yet, less than 10 percent are affiliated with an evangelical church.
Sean and Lydia Stevenson moved to the city with the intent of replanting a church that had lost touch with its community. Many in the neighborhood were Polish or of central European descent, and Sean and Lydia had served eight years in Poland with the International Mission Board.
While they have reached several Russian and European peoples, roughly half of their church members are Hispanic, a predominant group in their community. The Stevensons now are making provisions to reach these individuals and Sean is in the process of learning Spanish to add to his language repertoire.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program provides for missionaries like the Stevensons who are reaching the nations right here in the United States.
PRAY for Sean and Lydia as they continue to reach their diverse community and that many will come to faith in Jesus Christ.
