My journey as a pastor began in 2008; however, it changed dramatically when I attended my first College of Prayer module in 2012. It is my desire to see the church in Williamsport actively unite to see God revive His church to reach a lost world for Christ! Join us May 20th and May 21st as we invite Jon Mitchell, the Executive Director of the College of Prayer, to lead us in this Christ encountering event.

The Purpose of a Prayer on Fire Gathering
A Prayer on Fire Gathering is a two-day God-encountering opportunity to rally local churches to contend for a move of God in a region and to cast the vision of how the College of Prayer can serve area churches in reaching a lost world through a revived church. There is no upfront long-term commitment to our ministry, and regardless of whether or not a local College of Prayer campus is established, we can assure you that your Church will be well served through this event.
THREE SIGNIFICANT PRAYERS TO PRAY:
Protection – “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.” Psalms 46:1-2
Direction – “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” John 16:13
Revelation – “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.” Ephesians 1:17
WHAT IS THE COLLEGE OF PRAYER?
The College of Prayer International is more of a movement than a program; more of an organism than an organization. We are fueled by a compelling vision: To mentor, train and equip Christian pastors and leaders to reach a lost world through a revived church.
The College of Prayer International exists to serve Christ and His church. We exist to lead the local church to encounter the manifest presence of Christ and to help every congregation become a house of prayer for all nations. The entire College of Prayer ministry is modeled after the way Christ made disciples and built the Upper Room. Just as Jesus spent three years training His disciples to pray, so do we (Luke 11:1). Just as Jesus led His followers into the Upper Room to have a fresh encounter with His manifest presence (Acts 1:13), to fill them with His Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4) and then send them out to make disciples of all nations (Acts 1:8), so we are re-establishing this New Testament paradigm all over the world.
The College of Prayer is a highly transferable paradigm of discipleship and evangelism designed to revive the Church and advance the kingdom of God by the power of the Spirit of God. We are convinced that prayer is not the latest church growth program; rather, it is a way of life. The College of Prayer intentionally enables students to grow in their own spiritual formation. Today, we are seeing God pour out His reviving Spirit on His Church and His followers in the Church and the workplace all over the world. He is calling His Church back to the Upper Room to be a house of prayer for all nations (Mark 11:17).
