Dear Friend and Fellow Believer,
Thank you for your participation and/or interest in the bi-annual Agape Prayer Ministry Schools that have been held in our region (and abroad) for nearly two decades. God has used prayer ministry to bring healing and freedom to many through Agape.
I am writing to inform you of an important change to the training School. Please read on for more detail.
For more than a year, the Agape Board for the Southeastern PA region (Joel Kolb, Sandy Landes, Starr Lichty, Anna Ralph and myself) has been meeting monthly to pray for the ministry. We have been seeking the Lord’s will for the future of the ministry and how it should take shape. We are sensing that it is time to “change the way we do School.”
We feel the Lord is calling us to move toward a congregation-focused model and away from the two-day, twice-a-year training model. The congregation-focused model would provide opportunity for more teaching, more rapid training and a wider reach of prayer, healing and discipleship ministry. It also means that each congregation could tailor training timetables and formats to meet their specific needs. We are currently praying and seeking how this could be implemented in one local congregation, and are praying about other opportunities.
While the details are not fully decided, this shift in focus means that there will be no March/September “schools” for the foreseeable future. Rather, we will be working with congregations on a case-by-case basis, as they express interest in a churchwide approach to healing and prayer ministry.
I hope that you will join us in praying for this new season of healing, ministry and prayer in our local congregations. I welcome any questions you have, and would be delighted to hear if your church has interest in participating.
