Vineyard Church Prayer & Encounter Ministry Partner Application
October 1st - October 1st, 2027
The purpose of the Prayer and Encounter Ministry is to encourage others in developing a lifestyle of presence, peace and power through encounter with Jesus. There are six key areas that encompass this ministry: Communion Team, Creative Arts Team, Kingdom Intercessory Prayer, Prayer Team, Prophetic Encounters, and Sozo. Our desire is that through these areas of ministry, individuals will learn to recognize the voice of God in their life and remember His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection as the center of all things. His children will discover how to develop their spiritual senses by activating the creative gifts found within all of us and engage in corporate prayer that invites the presence and direction of the Holy Spirit. Inner healing sessions will be facilitated through the Sozo ministry. Our ministry aims at equipping a body of believers to: "Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.” Nothing is withheld from us!" Matthew 6:10 (Passion Translation)
Prayer and Encounter Ministry partners will serve the Vineyard family in cultivating a more intimate walk with Jesus. They will demonstrate the love and heart of the Father by “rightly handling the Word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15). “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth” (1 Cor 13:4-6). Ministry partners commit to “do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant” (Phil 2:3) and in doing so represent Vineyard’s mission.
