NEW! West Ohio Conference “Traction Tracks”
….to help your congregation gain traction and begin to move forward towards new vitality!
Breakthrough Prayer Initiative: Traction Tracks
Every church recognizes prayer as important. But what happens when a congregation unites to pray collectively and consistently for God to break through in new and miraculous ways? You can launch your congregation into the kind of churchwide breakthrough prayer initiative that fuels the atmosphere of possibility, and the entire focus begins to shift from inward to up-and-outward. It's easier than you think--and the results will make spiritual history right in your own community and beyond.
Breakthrough prayer can be incorporated into what already happens in the daily life of your congregation--and this one-session Traction Track will provide training, many stories, practicalexamples and ideas of how other United Methodist congregations across West Ohio and the country have done so with innovation and impact. Additionally, learn how you can utilize breakthrough prayer through key aspects of your weekly worship service, and develop your church's heart to reach its neighborhood with the message and love of Christ.
Each church team that attends this one-day training will be partnered with a “guide,” a church leader who in his or her own ministry setting has successfully led and deployed a Breakthrough Prayer Initiative. The guide will walk alongside you and your congregation with that expertise to help encourage and assist you to accomplish this as well.
The Breakthrough Prayer Initiative forms the foundation of the MCCI (Missional Church Consultation Initiative), and its implementation has shown itself to be the single greatest factor contributing to a church’s revitalization and renewed fruitfulness. This may be the most important ingredient to add to your church to help shift from plateau or decline into a new season of hope and possibility!
Requirement to Attend: Your church’s team must include your lead pastor plus at least 5 persons who have agreed to be the implementation team for your congregation’s prayer initiative afterwards. And bring as large a team to the training event (beyond pastor plus 5 leaders) as possible. We have learned through the MCCI that by bringing a team to the training — of 6, 10, 15, 20 persons or more--the more likely the momentum you’ll have to launch when you get home!
Cost: $75 for your church’s team of lead pastor plus five persons—plus $10/person for each additional person who attends from your congregation. This registration cost covers the training materials, refreshments during breaks, and a light lunch or supper as appropriate to your event’s time frame.
