Prayer and Encouragement
Walk Right In Ministries brings encouragement to families through a variety of ministry activities and events. The WRIM Prayer Team intercedes for hundreds of individuals and families receiving monthly updates and sometimes urgent prayer requests. Prayer warriors also gather (virtually) weekly throughout the year for a Prayer Call via phone or Zoom. Care package assembly and mailing of hand-written notes of encouragement are also supported by volunteers.
Our featured local event, Jammin’ Pie Fest, involves more than 60 additional volunteers annually. Volunteer partnerships include church small groups doing service projects, students (e.g., National Honor Society, church youth groups), professionals (most discount their services to share in our mission) and many talented friends.

Walk Right In Ministries depends on ministry through collaboration and multiplication. We understand that, by the power, grace and mystery of the Holy Spirit, God uses the intersection of resonating stories and Christ-seeking faith to do more than we can ever imagine. As we have the privilege of walking and growing with friends who reach out to this ministry for help, they are able to move forward in their own story by walking out their faith with others too. This “Walking Partner” lifestyle enhances our sense of adventure with Jesus and bolsters our hope of heaven.
At Walk Right In Ministries, we gratefully celebrate, promote and depend on the promises of 2 Corinthians 1:3-6 and Ephesians 3:16-21 to advance and accelerate ministry beyond our small team.
