Prayers for Pastors, Staff and Supported Ministries – NJ


Throughout the years people have asked, “Where does the ministry need support, help and prayer?” During the month of February, we would like to highlight individuals who Step of Faith supports so that they can do the work of the ministry from NJ to Italy to Albania. Because these men and women have taken a step of faith to go out and do what God is calling them to do as supported Pastors, staff, missionaries and overseers, many around the world are hearing the good news of Jesus Christ while meeting practical physical and emotional needs. This week… New Jersey…


Mike Durante – Hope Albania Church  ~ Mike has been the pastor of this Albanian church in NJ for many years. This church allows Albanians who come to America a place to worship God in their language. Mike also has discipled and brought some of his congregation back to Albania where they have witnessed to their Muslim family members and many have come to know Jesus Christ. Mike is the reason why SOFM began involvement with Pastor Plator and the ministry in Albania in 2014. SOFM currently supports Mike on a monthly basis through our General Fund.


Ted & Katie Kenney – Plays on Word Theater ~ Ted & Katie began POW out of a desire to spread the word of God through Biblical one-man plays. Each year their audiences have expanded to now include not only churches, but also prisons, schools, youth groups, outreaches and over the past 2 years… Albania. They travel throughout the US and plan to expand their global ministry as well. Hearts are being changed as Ted brings the stories of the bible to life through these free events. They are considered ‘state-side missionaries’ of whom SOFM currently supports monthly through our General Fund.


Karen Peet ~ Rooted in Love ~ Towards the end of the time that Karen was a board member with SOFM, she began to feel that a different path for her was about to begin. Karen took a big step of faith as she began Rooted in Love; a ministry that shows the love of Jesus to the adult entertainment industry (now) at several dance clubs in the tri-state area. With the monthly outreaches growing, the relationships with the woman and owners of the clubs continue to grow. Women are seeing Jesus through Karen and her volunteers as they meet with them in the clubs and show them love through conversations, gifts and prayer. SOFM currently supports Rooted in Love monthly through the General Fund.


We are excited to partner with the above ministries and watch how God is touching the lives of so many, near and far, in places that we might want to go and places that we might not.  If you would like to help get behind the funding of one of the above ministries, you can, by donating through our General Fund. Your support will help SOFM continue their support for all of them. And your prayers for these guys (and gals) is always appreciated! God is using them in big ways! Thank you!
