That’s the image God chose to impress on our minds the moment Paul became born again. His conversion drove him to his knees and led him to discover unique ways to bridge the cultural divide that all too often separated people from one another. What would happen if you spent the next 40 days learning the prayer habits of Paul? What would happen if you prayed some of his very prayers—just like he urged us to?

Paul prayed and recommended we pray, “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better (Ephesians 1:17) and that your love may abound more and more” (Philippians 1:9).

Raising a Child Who Prays


In every revival, God responds to the desperate cries and passionate prayers of His people for a holy visitation by invading their lives and generation with His power and glory. In response, the people allow their tears of repentance to become liquid prayers for God’s purposes. They learn how to pursue God in intercession, and take up intercession as a lifestyle. These actions have, throughout history, transformed simple men and women into history makers.
On Friday, July 27, 2018, hundreds of men and women from around the region will assemble at our West Campus in Rockaway, New Jersey, for the sole purpose of seeking a transforming moment with God. With the assistance of gifted intercessors and worship leaders, we will learn and practice the spiritual secrets involved in building a life of prayer.
Join us at Prayerfest 2018 as we use our passion for Christ to seek God for a holy visitation and a transformational period of revival.

One in Christ: Bridging Racial & Cultural Divides

Get Your Copy Now!

Racial disharmony is tearing communities apart, both inside and outside the Church. But Jesus Christ is the great reconciler. Warmth, regard, and respect emanated from His person toward others—all others. Jesus was comfortable in His skin and this made others who approached Him comfortable in their skin. We too are called by God to build bridges, cross cultural lines, and model diversity in every area of our lives. In a divided society Christians must demonstrate how to practice unity, tearing down the barriers that keep us apart. Learn more…
