We are called to make Jesus known locally and globally. In Southern Maryland, we partner with local ministries that make known the love of Jesus. Across our state and country, we support church-planters and campus ministers. Across the world, we minister to those outside our borders, through short-term trips, internships, and partnership with our missionaries.

Missionary of the Month

Rachel Varner

How you can be praying for her this month:

1. Welcoming new students onto campus- there are huge needs for students to have a sense of belonging.  Prayers that they find Intervarsity (IV) and feel welcomed and known.
2. For me to be present with the current situation rather than focusing on the next thing ahead.
3. Prayers for rest and sustainable rhythms.
4. Prayers for current students in the chapter to rise up and take ownership in small group and event spaces
  • Prayers for discernment that I would be able to challenge and disciple them well.  That they would respond to the challenge to take the next step with Jesus.
5. Please pray for new and current students in our chapter to connect with one another and have a sense of Christian community and life with Jesus.
6. Please pray for my Large Group talk this month on Sept. 15. I get very nervous.
7. Lastly, pray for Fall Conference happening in October.  That we would have committed students from St. Mary's attending and that they would know Jesus more and be more connected to one another in that space.
