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, October 21, 2016, 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 2016 as we use our passion for Christ to seek God for a holy visitation and a transformational period of revival.


Expect the presence of God to descend on our prayer festival! Expect to receive major breakthroughs in your life. Expect to receive instruction at the School of Prayer that will revolutionize your prayer life.


Bring a Bible, a pen, and a notebook so you can capture whatever God speaks to your heart. The aim of this special time of prayer intercession at Prayerfest is for each of us to encounter the presence of God and experience the release of His power for breakthrough in the major areas of our lives.


Dress for your own personal comfort. Prayerfest is a relaxed and informal event. We will be praying and ministering to the Lord throughout the day, so wear what makes you feel comfortable.
