District Annual Charge Conference
Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
sponsored by Shawnee Valley District

The Shawnee Valley District is excited to host its first ever Breakthrough Prayer Summit in conjunction with its annual District Charge Conference.

We believe as a District that prayer is the foundation of discipleship and fruitful ministry. Our goal is to remind and encourage every church in our District to create a prayerful atmosphere in its congregation. What if we prayed before making any plans? What if we depended on the Holy Spirit to direct all our efforts? Our Prayer Summit is designed to impact each church by making prayer the heartbeat of all we do and accomplish. You are invited to a life-giving day in our District. Please see the flow of our day below and the opportunity you will have to be encouraged to make prayer the expression of a trusting relationship with Jesus Christ. We would love for you to come!
