Brianna McKinney: Showing Love to a Lonely City
Brianna McKinney says for many people Denver is a lonely place. For community, they might go to a coffee shop where they’re surrounded by others — but they’re still alone.
And the chances are slim the gospel will make it into their personal space. The city only has one evangelical church for every 32,000 people. To put that in perspective, there’s one marijuana dispensary for every 2,000 people and one brewery for every 7,000.
But through the ministry center where Brianna serves as a journeyman, she and her teammates are seeing relationships built and people saved as they work alongside missionaries and church plants. They’re reaching out to a nearby refugee school, ministering to the homeless, mobilizing teams of student volunteers and doing food distribution to families.
This year, “the mission has moved forward,” Brianna said. “We are just in need of more laborers.”
- For more workers to feel called to Denver to work alongside missionaries and expand their ministries.
- For perseverance for Brianna and her team in Denver who are working to love their city well.
