RESOURCE ~ Coordinator's Responsibilities

Important Resource
Prayer Coordinators

Mainline churches are among the most well organized institutions in America. However, when it comes to prayer, there is often no plan, no leadership, no goals, no recruitment efforts and no training. We just hope that people are praying. There is good news. Prayer can be organized just like any other ministry.

A key to successful organization of prayer ministry in the local church is the prayer coordinator. Someone other than the pastor must spend prayer, creative energy and time making prayer a priority in the church.

Renewal Ministries is committed to helping prayer coordinators by providing them with fresh new materials, ideas and a way to communicate with one another. You may now use our Message Board to contact Pastors, Prayer Coordinators, and others from around the world. You may share ideas and discuss ways to improve your ministry. Please sign in here or above at the Message Board link and share your experiences.
