Thank you to those of you who were able to join us at the First Kingdom Congress last Friday evening in Everett. What a time we had! More than 150 leaders from government, business, education, ministry, and other spheres gathered to exalt King Jesus over our state and issue a response to the Goliath-sized challenges of our day. Is there not a cause?!
The vision presented at the First Kingdom Congress was one of corporate unity and projected power in the body of Christ. The consensus of those that gathered was, "Why not us, and why not now?" We are on the cusp of a historic new work of cooperation and unity in the Church of Washington State, one that will see the elders return to the gates of our cities, and the watch of the Lord establish a wall of prayer around the state.
For those of you who were not able to come, we invite you to join us on October 3, 2014 for the Second Kingdom Congress, where we will continue to unfold the plan for 1Church1Day (www.1church1day.org), the strategy for linking the body in a continual prayer watch for our state and gathering leaders from each of the seven spheres of society into strategic councils. These two efforts, combined with the communication plan that will link them, will provide valuable spiritual and natural intelligence for how to position the Church for
transformation in our state.
Between now and the Second Kingdom Congress, we also invite you to learn more about the vision at http://www.1church1day.org/and sign up there for the 1Church1Day mailing list to receive updates, articles, and information about upcoming training for the work we'll be doing together.
Join the Cause!
Are you or someone you know in a position of influence in one of the seven spheres? We are seeking business, government, media/arts, education, healthcare, family, and church leaders with an interest in participating on a state-level council that will inform the prayer targets for our state and seek the wisdom of heaven for bringing transformation to their individual spheres. If this is you or someone you know, please visit and share with others our website, www.1church1day.org. Sign up under Strategic Councils (click here) to receive more information about council roles and opportunities, and mark October 3rd on your calendar to attend the Second Kingdom Congress where the detailed plan will be presented.
Additionally, we are looking for churches and ministries who will take a day of prayer each month and help us raise a continual offering to the Lord for our state. Since Friday evening, we've had 7 churches commit to each take one day of prayer. That's one full week of ongoing intercessory prayer to see transformation in our state! We are looking for a total of 31 groups who will commit to watch, pray, and report what they hear from the Lord. Prayer targets will be directly informed by Christian leaders in business, government, education, media/arts, healthcare, family, and the church who are part of the strategic councils mentioned above.
To enlist your ministry for a 24-hour watch, visit www.1church1day.org and sign up under Churches and Prayer Groups (click here).
Connecting for Power
At the founding of our nation, the First Continental Congress served to inspire the colonists to action, but it wasn't until the Second Continental Congress that the Patriots began operating in a united, coordinated effort. Key delegates such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson who were not present at the first congress also joined the cause at that time.
On October 3, 2014 at the Second Kingdom Congress, we will move on to the business of working together and coordinating our efforts for statewide prayer and preparation for transformation. We're inviting those who were not able to attend the first congress to join us now and step into the important part that the Father has designed for them to play.
Stay tuned for details about the Second Kingdom Congress and mark October 3, 2014 on your calendars. We look forward to seeing you there.
