Dear Friends in Christ,
Prayer Summit - Each Church Send One
This letter was sent this week to all Christian Reformed churches. It has also been cross-posted in the Pastors section of The Network.
I'm writing to you today with a special, time-sensitive request.
On April 16-18, a first-ever Prayer Summit for our denomination will take place in Los Angeles, Calif. By way of the “Each Church Send One!” campaign, I am inviting — and strongly encouraging — your congregation to send at least one person to this event. Our goal is to see hundreds of people, if not 1000+, gather together to learn not only how to pray in expanded ways but simply to pray. Undoubtedly, this will be a powerful time for all who attend.
The Prayer Summit is being organized by the Korean Council of Churches and will be held at All Nations Church, the largest congregation in the CRC with more than 3,000 members. It promises to be a powerful time of prayer, fellowship and fresh discovery of God’s work in hearts and lives.
So what are we praying for? For God’s leading in local churches, our 47 classes, our denomination, our communities, leadership at all levels, generations young and old, and so much more. This truly will be an unprecedented event that I, together with many others in the denomination, am committed to actively participating in and eagerly anticipate attending.
But time is of the essence. Prices are about to go up. Monday, March 26, is the deadline for discounted hotel pricing and on April 1 the conference registration increases to $125.
For complete details, including guest speakers, workshop leaders, location, registration, costs, and more, log on to: www.crcna.org/PrayerSummit
Thank you in advance for actively and prayerfully considering the resources to send at least one person from your congregation to the Prayer Summit. I hope to see you there!
