Day of Renewal | Houston

Wednesday, August 21 | Featuring Pastor Jim Cymbala, Daniel Henderson, and Jeff Wells


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.

Don’t miss our special guest Pastor Jim Cymbala of The Brooklyn Tabernacle.  Pastor Cymbala will be leading the evening prayer gathering as well a special pastors only gathering Thursday morning, Aug 22.

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 Wells and WoodsEdge Community Church for this one day gathering on Wednesday, August 21. This experience will conclude with WoodsEdge’s weekly church-wide prayer meting, providing you with first hand experience of what a vibrant culture of prayer could look like in your setting.
