Prayer Ministry


Luke 11:1 – “Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.”



The Purpose

Prayer is all about a relationship with God. Prayer is the means by which we as believers enter into God’s throne room. We believe sometimes it just takes One Prayer to Change Everything. Without the foundation of prayer our efforts to reach the lost are futile. God’s power through prayer is the only way. We partner with God where He is already moving and it is through His love that we minister. Our prayer team moves by the power of the Holy Spirit and believes “All Things Are Possible with God.”

The Mission

Community [kuhmyoo-ni-tee] (noun) is defined as “a unified body of individuals”. We are a community of servants of the Lord Jesus Christ who pray. We pray for the needs of the body of Christ across our communities, our neighborhoods, our region, our nation and the world. It is through this community that we demonstrate the love of Christ to others.

Training and Equipping

Two components exist within the Prayer Ministry. They are:

· The Altar Worker Team consists of men & women who pray for individuals at the altar during designated times of worship or through the leading of the Holy Spirit as directed by the pastor.

· The Intercessory Prayer Team consists of men & women who pray continually for the needs of the body of Christ and our church, who participate in prayer gatherings, and pray in advance for evangelistic outreaches and church events that reach our community

Training is required for anyone interested in serving in the Prayer Ministry. “Prayer 101: Spiritual Training for the Student of Prayer” is taught periodically throughout the year to equip those interested in the Prayer Ministry.
