Offering to Pray With Neighbors

We seek your prayer for a new pilot program called "Digital Prayer Ministry" is in its infant stage.  This program works through Adventist Information Ministry (AIM) and Upper Columbia Conference  (UCC) and expands prayer ministry into the digital realm. This pilot program utilizes social media to invite people in a specific geographic to request prayer and ultimately connect with a prayer partner in a local church. The results in other areas have been surprising.

Digital Prayer Ministry is beginning in UCC with approximately 6-10 churches.  There are no charges or fees during the pilot phase. Under this program, UCC and AIM will assist the churches in placing an ad on social media that will garner interests within a set radius. Participating churches go through free training and must have an active social media site such as Facebook and a website.  Initial qualifying churches have been invited to participate. Participation is currently by invite but churches who are interested in coming on board in the future may request an information packet. 

As a new pilot program, we must test this program in a few churches in UCC. As we study the results, we hope that we can offer this to more churches. We thank you for praying for this program that it will be successful.
For more information you can watch this 25-minute video clip which is a portion of the NAD Year-End Meetings. This gives you a glimpse of what Justin Kim, prayer ministry coordinator in Central California, experienced when six churches there participated in "Digital Prayer Ministry." The ads on social media were personal, from the pastors or a prayer leader, and they offered to pray with their neighbors.
