We are excited about your interest in serving in the Prayer Room. Because ministering to the heart of the Lord is our highest value, we want to build the Prayer Room with thoughtful intention and care in order to sustain it for years to come. Therefore, we have a process of coming into the Prayer Room. The goal is not simply to increase the number of sets or fill positions on teams but rather to build quality sets and teams like King David built.

“There were two hundred eighty-eight of these men, and all of them were skilled musicians. David assigned them their duties by asking the Lord what he wanted. Everyone was responsible for something, whether young or old, teacher or student.” 1 Chronicles 25:7 & 8
