YFM Directors Connecting Through Monthly Prayer Circles
First Thursday of the month 
Midday: 11:30 a.m. Central / 12:30 p.m. Eastern
Evening at 6:30 p.m. Central / 7:30 p.m. Eastern
For call-in instructions, e-mail Rev. Chase at 
or call  937-242- 8180.

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. 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.

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