Conference Focus: The Taking Ground Prayer Conference will focus on the power of intense intercession over our cities, the organizing of effective prayer strategies, and intercession teams to win those cities for the Kingdom. We are actually going to teach the dynamics of spiritual warfare, prayer walking, and prayer mapping your city as well as ways to focus on the biggest issues in those areas. We are not just looking to pray for our cities we are looking to win those cities for Christ and to see a powerful awakening of the Gospel in our Nation!
The Conference: We will have three sessions on Friday, then Saturday morning we will start off at 10:00am with a prayer walking event that will lead into worship and intercession Saturday afternoon. The sessions are as follows.
Friday Session 1 – 10:00am – 1:00pm – Warfare intercession – In this session we will be talking about waking up, encouraging, or stirring up the intercessory warrior in all of us. We don’t just want to pray for our cities we want to win them! We want to take ground for the Kingdom of God and we realize that passive half-hearted prayer will never accomplish that. If you come for nothing else, come to learn or be encouraged to war in the spirit. We will have special guest Melvia Cunningham to help lead us in prayer/warfare. Melvia is a spiritual bundle of dynamite, literally a lot of power in a small package. Melvia comes to us from Portland Oregon and has spent the majority of her life taking ground in intercession.
Friday Lunch – 1:00pm – 2:00pm (Lunch will be Provided in our fellowship hall)
Friday Session 2 – 2:00pm – 4:00pm – Prayer mapping and prayer walking your city, strategies for effectively changing your city spiritually and winning your city for the Kingdom of God. This session will be specifically aimed at equipping the Church with established and creative ways to approach city wide intercession. We will also have special guest speakers Pastor Daniel and Melinda Koehler from Tanzania Africa who will share testimonies and strategy that they have employed in over thirty years of ministry in Central and Eastern Africa.
Friday Dinner Break – 4:00pm – 6:30pm (on your own)
Friday Evening Session – 7:00pm – Oh this is gonna be good!!!! Worship – prophetic prayer – with an emphasis on personal ministry. We are literally going to stir up the gift of God in each other, as well as believing God for a powerful impartation of intercessory prayer in His Church!

Saturday Worship and Intercession – 2:00pm – We will be going into a time of Worship and intercession at the Church while some teams will be continuing to prayer walk our city. We wanted to announce a time that this would end, but we are really believing God for amazing testimonies of what happens during the prayer walks. Please come to this conference believing God for big things! We want to see Churches and prayer teams all across our across our City, State, and Nation, catch a vision for what God can do through a Church that is intent on seeing the Kingdom of Heaven loosed on Earth!
