Rhode Island and Beyond…
This picture just looks like a bunch of guys having a good time. Well, they are. These Rhode Island pastors like each other and like to pray together. This is their 12th annual Prayer Summit. I have had the privilege of facilitating most all of them.
But what you may not know is that there are men, not only from Rhode Island, but also from Guatemala, Nigeria, India, and South Africa here. Some of these men have been pastoring in RI for 40 years. Some just began their ministry there.
And here is another thing. They are all committed to working together to see Jesus exalted in their state. Just after this summit (the last week of April) several of them were together again praying and planning about “Together – Advancing the Gospel” – a two day gathering in October for leaders throughout their state. They have been dreaming about this for several years and this year it is going to happen. I am grateful that they say there is a direct relationship between their Prayer Summits and “Together.”
From the beginning, this has been a desired end result of the summits. We have never wanted to only bless and refresh pastors. We have wanted to bless and refresh pastors so that there could be a fresh move of God initiated and sustained in a community.
Rhode Island is one more place where this is happening.
