Please pray for these ministries, that they will continue to grow and meet the needs of the Christians in this mission field. Pray for Christians who still think they are alone, that they will find community and connect with one of these ministries. And contact any of these ministries if you want to learn more or get involved. They are all available to Christian entertainment professionals in Hollywood or anywhere else in the world!
