Prayer Ministry

Our Prayer Ministry includes Mission Advocacy Prayer Partners (MAPP) and Women on Mission, ministries in which you can participate that have an emphasis on missions and prayer. You may also pray for people or places that God has laid on your heart.  These might include:

  • A person (a family member, neighbor, friend, or coworker)

  • A specific missionary with whom our church works

  • Missionaries from our church (teams and individuals)

  • An unreached people group (an ethnic group that has no significant presence of the gospel)

  • A specific place or region (research the 10/40 Window)

The missions office can provide information regarding the prayer needs of missionaries. Information on people groups and places is available online at imb.org and namb.net.

Shepherd’s Staff

These volunteers have a heart for meeting the needs of missionaries, especially those who live near us during their stateside assignments (furloughs). Contact: Susan Hines

Women on Mission

WMU is an ongoing missions ministry that encourages and supports the work of missions teams and missionaries, and prays for the lost peoples of the world. Women learn about missions, pray for missions, and go on missions.

The WMU Day group meets once a month on Thursday at 10:00am.
The WMU Evening group meets once a month for one hour on Sunday at 4:30pm. 
Childcare is available for the Sunday group. For more information, contact Karla Luttrell.

English Second Language

English Second Language(ESL) offers classes two times each week to internationals who wish to learn conversational English. Thousands of internationals make their homes in Birmingham. We have students from Japan, Korea, Vietnam, India, Yemen, and many other places. If you meet them in a store or restaurant, invite them to an ESL class. Classes are offered on Wednesday morning and evening. Volunteers do not need to speak another language besides English. Contact: Karla Luttrell

Mix It Up (Music & Missions)
6:00 - 7:30pm
Kid Music and Missions are going to “ Mix it Up” because worshipping God and  sharing our faith GO TOGETHER!  A high energy Worship Rally time will move into a combined  choir rehearsal for 1st-4th graders, emphasizing scripture memory songs, anthems, and hymns, then breaking  into smaller activity groups with instruments, games and more!  Your child won’t want to miss this time of  worship and learning designed for even the most energetic kids! After that kids move to missions where they will learn about missionaries and people groups around the world that Hunter Street supports through praying, giving, and going. Mix it Up will be full of fun hands-on-activities to make missions come alive for our kids!
