Pray for Miami Shores Baptist Church in Moraine, Ohio

Pastor: Doug Surber

Weekly Worship: Sunday at 11:00 AM, Eastern

Fast Facts: Miami Shores Baptist Church started in 1961. Over the past 55 years, the church has had only two full-time pastors. The church has built three buildings and invested in a bus ministry. They had some very big attendance days of over 700 people, but the church is now declining in numbers. The average attendance at Miami Shores is less than 100 most Sundays.

In the next 2-3 years the city of Moraine has plans for over 100 new homes to be built within one mile of the church. Please pray for Miami Shores as they develop a good plan to reach these new residents with the gospel. Also pray for the church to find a part-time music minister.

Miami Shores will host their Christmas service today and a Men’s Summit in January. Please pray that God will use the church to reach their community for Christ through these two events.
