This coming week, Church of the Resurrection will host the annual Leadership Institute at Resurrection. This year, almost 1600 people from all over the country and beyond will come to our church to be inspired, encouraged, instructed, and filled with renewed enthusiasm and vision for the ministry of their own churches. We have asked the congregation to be praying for all those who attend Leadership Institute this year, and we ask that you pray, too. If you are in worship this weekend, pick up a bookmark at the Connection Point with the name of one of our Institute guests. You can pray for this person during the week. We hope you also pray for our staff and pastors, who will be presenting workshops on every aspect of ministry.
Please pray for:
- Safe travel
- Health and comfort while they are here
- What they learn here help them grow, change lives, transform communities and bring renewal to the Church
- They experience personal growth, renewed energy and enthusiasm for their ministry
Here is the prayer that is printed on the bookmark. It is our prayer for each of the churches represented by our guests, and our prayer for the Church of the Resurrection, too:
We long to be the beacon that
shines your light. Help us learn
and grow so we may change lives,
transform our communities, and
renew the church.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
