YFM Directors Connecting Through Monthly Prayer Circles

Foundational spiritual practice encourages and inspires.


prayercircle
Praying together uplifts everyone involved. Prayer requests are personal and professional. Whatever they are, they are held in confidence. Prayer is a tool to create the youth and family ministry you desire. Prayer is the tool to bring out the good in the youth and family ministry already manifested. Praying connects us with God and each other.

"How to teach youth about prayer?" is a common question. Youth learn by example and so do adults. By being part of a prayer circle, YFM directors are imparting this life skill to others. The integrity of their walk and talk radiates from their being. They are also meeting their own desire of connection.

The YFM Director Prayer Circle meets the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Central / 7:30 p.m. Eastern. For call-in instructions, contact Rev. Chase:
yfmtrainingdirector@greatlakesunity.com or  937-242- 8180.

 If you want to be part of a prayer circle and you can’t participate when this circle meets contact Rev. Chase
