How Does This Happen?

Weekly Prayer Sets

Two hour sets of praying, reading Scripture, singing, and ministering to the Lord. In these sets, we function in two primary roles: priests and watchmen. Our primary calling as believers is to always minister to the Lord as priests. It is from that place that we operate as watchmen on the wall, praying Scripture prophetically over our region, the nation, and the world.  These prayer sets are intimate and led by the Holy Spirit. We come ready to pour out our love on King Jesus and stay sensitive to what is on His heart in every moment throughout the set.

Pursuit Weekends

24 non-stop hours of worship, prayer, and teaching. This happens through a continuous change of worship and prayer leaders every 1-2 hours as we keep the fire burning on the altar. We believe that everything in life flows out of a couple different things: personal revelation of the knowledge of God, and then from that place, encountering Jesus and His presence in an authentic, powerful way that transforms lives and causes hearts to burn for Him. We believe God’s desire was never to create servants that do His work. His desire was always for Sons and Daughters who would carry and reflect His glory to a hurting world.

First Friday

Gathering of the community for a night of worship and seeking His face on the first Friday of every month. Many people sitting in churches every week have never experienced what it is to have the Holy Spirit reveal Jesus to them in a way that brings transformation. We’re used to responding to an image of God that we’ve created through tradition, denomination, and our upbringing. From that version of Him, we know the routine of church life. Our heart is to lead people out of mindsets and systems that are not worthy of God, and into a life of passion and revival, through encounter, thus launching them into their destiny and Kingdom ministry! These nights create space to behold our King corporately.
