LATE OCTOBER—EARLY NOVEMBER
A major responsibility that should have been parceled out at one of the beginning of the year leadership retreats is the assignment of leaders to the prayer ministry. Prayer is a critical component of the ministry requiring a leader—ideally a whole leadership team.
The prayer ministry would be responsible for things like: planning special evenings of praise and worship; locating rooms to be used for prayer; launching prayer strategies like 24-7 prayer; and general promotion of prayer and prayer events. The prayer team makes sure that prayer always remains a very high and visible value of the ministry.
While those giving leadership to the prayer ministry have been underway for some time now, the post-Fall retreat evangelistic event provides the opportunity to promote prayer and gift ‘lift’ to the prayer ministry.
The evangelistic event provides a specific focus to the prayer times and allows for some creative strategies like a prayer chain leading up to the event.
Attached is a chapter excerpt taken from the book “Fireseeds of Spiritual Awakening.” For the last three decades this book has fueled student-led prayer movements, and it should be required reading for everyone involved in the prayer ministry. Download the PDF above.
Chip Scivicque, Ron Sanders, and Jay Lorenzen discuss how to build movements characterized by passionate gospel proclamation and compassionate gospel demonstration.
