Encounter: A Prayer Ministry of ccdelco


Our Vision

The vision of the Encounter Prayer Ministry is for our church to become a unified house of prayer which hosts God's presence and healing power, ultimately awakening souls to their kingdom identities and callings on Earth (Matthew 6:9-13). 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Encounter Prayer Ministry is to encourage the body of Christ to enjoy God's presence, hear His voice, and walk in obedience daily on a path toward freedom. We encourage using the Lord's Prayer as a model to connect people with their heavenly Father, believing that His loving nature gives us confidence to pray "on earth as it is in heaven".

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests." [Ephesians 6:18]

Ministry purpose:

  1. Inspire the desire and a passion for prayer.

  2. Provide instruction and examples for prayer.

  3. Provide ongoing prayer opportunities and events.

  4. Recruit volunteers to carry out this ministry.

  5. Insure that all prayer requests of the body are addressed in a timely, appropriate, and confidential manner, connecting with our Care ministry.

  6. Support ccdelco and its leaders (pastors, staff, volunteers, ministries, and congregation) with specific and consistent prayer.

  7. Provide prayer support for our mission programs around the world.
