“Upon arriving in Antioch, they called the church together and reported everything God had done through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles, too.” – Acts 14:27 (NLT)
At the recent 2017 Delegates Meeting in Chicago, brothers and sisters from every inhabited continent presented the progress of the gospel in their respective countries. We were all encouraged to hear of expanding elderships, scores of church plantings, new ministry training academies, and faith-building anecdotes highlighting the power of the Spirit. At the same time, we were sobered by almost 100 cities with metro populations of at least one million still awaiting a church planting.
There is much to do. So we began with power. We prayed. We prayed for every continent, every need, every opportunity presented to us from the continental representatives. We logged over 300 collective hours of prayer during the continental presentations. Moreover, most arrived in Chicago after dedicating themselves to prayer and fasting for our brotherhood.
