Prayer & Encounter Ministry PartnerFree
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 seven key areas that encompass this ministry: Communion, Creative Arts, Intercession, Prayer Team, Prophetic, Sozo Inner Healing, and Women's ministry. Our desire is that through these areas of ministry, individuals will learn to recognize the voice of God in their lives, remember His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection as the center of all things, and be activated to go into the world and share the good news of the Kingdom of God.
Our ministry aims to equip our 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.
