IMB to hold new School of Prayer in Virginia comment (0)
June 6, 2013
ROCKVILLE, Va. — “Prayer is not just important — it’s essential,” said Gordon Fort, senior vice president for prayer mobilization and training with the International Mission Board (IMB).
Fort is leading the IMB’s new School of Prayer for All Nations (SPAN). The initiative features weeklong “schools of prayer” workshops at the International Learning Center (ILC) in Rockville, Va., in which about 20 members/leaders of Southern Baptist churches practice the principles of prayer. The goal is for participants to replicate this focus on prayer within their homes, congregations and communities.
“Prayer is not simply a part of our ministry, it is the fuel of our ministry,” said one Baptist representative. “Prayer is such an important avenue for people to be directly involved in what God is doing on a global scale.”
The first SPAN is scheduled for July 29 through Aug. 2 at the ILC. Additional 2013 schools are scheduled for Sept. 2–6, Oct. 28 through Nov. 1 and Dec. 2–6. For more information or online registration, visit regonline.com/span or email email@example.com.
