New Church Ministry supports pastors, chaplains, and others starting new places of worship by equipping them with the tools they need to lead.
But the spiritual discipline prayer is perhaps the strongest tool of all.
Through Water the Plants, a church-wide initiative aiming to bring together 1,000 intercessors to pray for new worship expressions in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, New Church Ministry gathers a team of dedicated supporters of the New Church Movement every week on the phone. Facilitated by a group leader and guided by a monthly calendar, participants pray for regions, general ministries, emerging and affiliating congregations, and their leaders. Based on 1 Corinthians 3:6, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow,” group leaders take a proactive approach to “watering” DOC church “plants” with prayer (Living Water).
But with only 11 minutes together on Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings, prayer intercessors don’t get much time to mingle with one another.
That’s why New Church Ministry organized its inaugural prayer-focused virtual event, the Water the Plants Prayer Summit, back in March.
Now our ministry is excited to invite you to our second Prayer Summit, which will take place on Saturday, June 5th from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST. In addition to prayer, the online gathering will include a scripture shower, live musical performance, testimony from various church planters, and so much more.
With Associate Minister for New Church Strategies Joi Robinson hosting the event, our Summit is a unique opportunity not to be missed.
