Tuesday, March 5 | Featuring Daniel Henderson and Jeff Schwarzentraub
Every genuine minister wants to be more equipped in the work of ministry. However, we can far too easily turn to methods that directly undermine the nature of this spiritual work. After following Jesus and observing his life, the disciples understood the real source of His ministry. This is why their only request in ministry equipping was simply, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).
The Day of Renewal Regional Events are designed to inspire and equip you in building a supernaturally empowered ministry. This is a great opportunity for your entire leadership team to find practical tools and a fresh vision for a ministry powered by prayer.
Most importantly, you will get to see these principles in action. All our Day of Renewal events feature local churches and pastors that have seen exceptional growth and impact in the area of prayer. Contrary to some conferences, you will hear from local church pastors who are modeling what they are teaching, and will give you practical insight to help you succeed in your ministry context.
We are excited to parter with Pastor Jeff Schwarzentraub and BRAVE Church for this one day gathering. This experience will conclude with BRAVE’s monthly church-wide prayer meting (regularly attended by over 600 people), providing you with first hand experience of what a vibrant culture of prayer could look like in your setting.
