Praying Church Conference 

Join Prayer Leaders Bob Bakke, David Bryant, and others for
 Fresh hope, passion, and prayer focused on the supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ
The Praying Church Conference will help ignite a passion for prayer in pastors, leaders, faithful prayer champions, and anyone who desires to grow in prayer. This conference is a partnership of Global Day of Prayer, Prayer Transformation Ministries, and Prayer First.

Christ Alone! Prayer Encounter: (for pastors and prayer leaders) facilitated by David Bryant, Friday, Oct. 15 (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) - $30 (Includes lunch)

This day will be unlike anything you have experienced before. Short teaching segments on the supremacy of Christ will be intermingled with worship, group prayer, quiet reflection, and proclamations to the Lord.

  • An entire day focused exclusively on the glory and supremacy of the Son of God.
  • An opportunity to gain insights for unpacking a larger vision of Christ for others.
  • And introduction to a whole new approach to preaching and teaching.
  • Varieties of prayer all focused on the greater need in all of our churches: A fresh awakening to Christ alone, for ALL that He is.
  • The rekindling of our own passion for Christ and our desire to seek His Kingdom in prayer.
  • A practical tool to continue growing and sharing the focus of Christ Alone.
Citywide Concert of Prayer: Friday evening (Oct. 15, 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m); open to public with no registration charge.

Praying Church Conference:  Saturday, Oct. 16 (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.); featuring Bob Bakke and Jerry Sheveland as speakers, with several workshops led by local prayer leaders. - $50 (includes lunch)

  • Plenary Session: Suffering for Christ Alone (Bob Bakke)
Among the many promises of Scripture, one that we don’t often like to celebrate is the promise that suffering is and will be a part of our Christian lives. Dr. Bakke will share how suffering can be a tool that God uses to expand our prayer lives for Christ alone.
