Worship Pastor Prayer Guide

Pray for the Von Stein Family

Our search team contacted Steven and asked if there were specific prayer requests that he and Allison may have. We ask that you begin praying with us for not only NorthRidge Church but specifically the Von Stein family and also the ministry that they are currently serving. Here is a list that Steven sent us:

Please pray…

– For safe and pleasant travel as we drive down to Florida this week to come in view of a call. 

– For God’s continued peace and sustaining power as we move forward in this process, both for the Von Steins and for NorthRidge. 

– For God’s grace and favor in finding housing and schools for our children.

– For our children (particularly our eldest son, Isaac) as they will be saying goodbye to friends and familiar places (church, school, our home, etc.). 

– For Fellowship, as they will have to say farewell to us and look for a replacement both in the children’s and worship ministries. 

– For a smooth transition to NorthRidge, both for me in stepping into the role as Worship Pastor and for my family to feel welcomed, loved, and at home at our new church.

– For the Worship Team and me, that we would be united in heart, mind and spirit as we enter this new chapter of the Worship Ministry at NorthRidge.
