How this ARM resource can help your church:
Experience a concert of prayer
Following teaching on the importance of praying together and an opportunity to share together in small groups, participants will experience a unique model of corporate prayer. A concert of prayer combines seasons of worship with seasons of directed prayer.
Understand how the gifts of the Holy Spirit enhance praying together
Sound biblical teaching from a Wesleyan perspective will help participants understand and use the gifts of the Holy Spirit effectively in corporate prayer. Emphasis is also given to praying for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Put into practice tools for corporate prayer
There are 8 tools in the curriculum. Each tool includes sound biblical teaching and a prayer experience to allow participants to pray together. More than teaching, this unit enables participants to encounter God.
Learn how to minister healing to body, soul, and spirit
Pathways to a Praying Church will enable your church to begin or strengthen an intentional healing ministry. We share both the importance of ministering to the whole person and practical guidelines for training prayer teams for ministry.
Pathways to a Praying Church Manual is designed to encourage God’s people to pray together corporately. This resource challenges and encourages churches to become houses of prayer and equips people with the tools for a consistent, powerful prayer life.
Recognizing that we learn by both hearing and doing, the curriculum is written to include a variety of activities that are practical applications of the teachings on prayer. Bible study members will share not only their victories, but also times when they have struggled to walk in intimacy with God through prayer. More than just a teaching tool, this seminar is an opportunity for all to encounter the Living God!
How to use this ARM resource for a weekend event:
Your weekend event within your local church is sharing their personal faith experiences with Jesus Christ.
Friday evening begins with a congregational fellowship time which often includes a covered dish dinner. This is followed by a general session with singing and team testimonies, children & youth ministries and small group discussions. After a re-assembly to hear small group reports, everyone is released for the evening.
Saturday includes meeting in home groups, children & youth sessions and luncheon meetings for men and women. That evening, following a covered dish meal, general sessions are again held.
Sunday the mission coordinator and team will be present and available to lead Sunday school and the morning worship service. Sunday evening the church gathers without the team for a time of celebration, sharing and planning for the future.
