Summit Trains Pastors to Lead Congregational Prayer

Reaching the Summit

Prayer Summits have profound power to transform the spiritual culture of a congregation. After leading scores of prayer summits in many congregations, we are excited to share experiences and insight that will equip other pastors. This event will strike the balance between the power of the experience and the practicality of being equipped to reproduce this format back home

The Expedition
This unique time will allow you to experience "Spirit-led, worship-fed corporate prayer" and, at the same time, learn how to reproduce it in your congregation. It is a Prayer Summit Plus, in that we will give explanations, answer questions, supply resources, and address specific situations. It will be a "show and tell" experience with some of the most experienced Prayer Summit facilitators. The primary purpose of this time is to equip you as a leader in your local setting.

Climbing Party
Sr. pastors (or Sr. ministry leaders), their spouse, and the staff they invite. We believe the Sr. pastor (or Sr. ministry leader) is essential to incorporate prayer into their congregation. Because the focus of this time will be to equip people to facilitate summit-styled prayer in congregations and other ministry settings, we believe his/her presence is vitally important.

Climb Date
July 24-26, 2007, noon to noon.

Base Camp
On the campus of Multnomah Bible College and Biblical Seminary, 8435 N. E. Glisan, Portland, Oregon.
