Sponsored by Strategic Renewal
The priority of early Church leaders was clear and simple: “We will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the Word” (Acts 6:4). No strategy has been devised in the intervening 2,000 years that adequately replaces that priority.
Yet today, prayerlessness, Scriptural infidelity, and leadership failure mar the character of the North American church. Church leaders are distracted, diluted, and discouraged for lack of spiritual health and focus. A return to the priority of Acts 6:4 is the essential and missing ingredient.
The 6:4 Residency, sponsored by Strategic Renewal, is designed to raise up a new generation of faithful, reliable, and Spirit-empowered leaders for Christ’s church. Forging new pastors to guide believers in the proven 6:4 pathway will lead to the powerful renewal we so desperately need.
Today, there is no shortage of training for those who desire to serve the Lord and His church. And yet, so little of this training is directly focused on the priority of prayer within the Church. Christ’s desire is for His church to be “a house of prayer” (Is 56:7, Mark 11:17) and for it’s leaders to be focused on the things of highest importance…”prayer and the ministry of the Word” (Acts 6:4).
By joining us in the launch of The 6:4 Residency, you help young pastors – just like Kyle – begin their ministry with the tools they need to succeed in the things of first importance.
