Looking for a pattern, an example, for an effective prayer movement within a region? Look to Kansas City! Rev. Gary Schmitz is the Executive Director of the Citywide Prayer Movement of Kansas City. In these few minutes of radio – first segment of three recorded — Gary brings to us encouraging, stimulating and stirring insights and examples of the responses of God when many people in a region come together in the kind of biblical unity for which Jesus prayed in John 17: 20 – 23.
“The mission of the Citywide Prayer Movement is accomplished by helping pastors and leaders connect in friendship, unite in prayer, and partner in mission. At times we gather in a citywide venue. We more frequently gather in smaller geographic regions to pray and serve together in our communities. There are 11 of these smaller community groups called “Village Fires “ across the Kansas City metro area. The Kansas City Village Fires form a transformation compassion-based partnering network.”
