Notes to Pastors

June 9 Pastors’ and Leaders’ Breakfast

Peter Smith, Charlie Ness, and Scott Landes will share the vision and work for the “Adopt A Street” prayer strategy that UPPEN* that has been launched for their region. “Adopt A Street” is about changing the spiritual climate in your community. What would happen if 100% of the streets in your community were being prayed for daily for the next 12 months? The “Adopt A Street” prayer strategy brings unity to churches, energizes the church in prayer and is simple enough for a child to understand. It impacts every segment of the community and creates ongoing transformation. The strategy is one of the most powerful ways to physically implement Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:8.

*UPPEN (Upper Perk Prayer Evangelism Network) is a growing network of churches in the Upper Perk region that has been in existence since 2003. Together, through prayer evangelism, they are seeing God changing the spiritual climate of their community and the surrounding region.
