Make plans now to join us at our next prayer and practical community outreach at these crucially important events called The Pastor Prayer Gathering, The Prayer and Unity Event, AND The Festival of Hope. Details to follow shortly!
The Delaware ‘Pastor Prayer Gathering' - Dover was a complimentary private gathering of DE church and ministry leaders, and their spouses. Attendees heard from inspirational speakers, enjoyed a delicious meal, and experienced unique fellowship all within the span of 1.5 hours!
All attendees were pleased to attend this extraordinary opportunity to collaborate with like-minded church and ministry friends, and their spouses, for a short time of relaxation, pastor-to-pastor dialogue, and earnest prayer regarding "The First State."
The event and luncheon were free, and no offering was taken.
Those that pastor a church or lead a ministry, were cordially invited to attend and many brought friends.
These private pastoral family gatherings always produce unexpected, positive fruit. It was an amazing time!
'The Festival of Hope' - Dover was a welcoming event that celebrated friendship, acceptance, and bridge building.
This June's Festival featured free clothing and food distribution, live music, and a free soul food dinner. Additionally, there was a no-charge expungement clinic and Jobs Fair, and attendees were encouraged to visit the Community Resource Partner Expo while at the Festival.
The goal was to create a safe space for all members of the community to come together and enjoy a day of celebration and new beginnings. After all, celebrating new beginnings is always a great way to bring people together, and the event was designed to promote positivity and unity.
Note: Pre-registration was required in order to secure a spot at the expungement clinic, and spaces were limited. Attendees were encouraged to sign up right away to ensure they got a spot.
In praying together, we were reminded that in joining together we were part of something much bigger than simply ourselves—that we were all connected and ultimately responsible for the well-being and strengthening of our communities in Spirit and in deed.
We joined with team members, volunteers, and prayer warriors from Reach Gospel Radio and The Response USA on the evening of Friday, June 2nd at 7 pm at The Hilton Garden Inn in Dover, DE for a time of earnest prayer in support of 'The Festival of Hope - Dover which was held on the following day.
Working together, we all want to see real change across our nation. Change that only our God can perform.
Attending ministry leaders participated in the evening prayer and intercession which was focused on bringing hope and new beginnings in the lives of our neighbors in Dover and the surrounding area.
Our purpose is to exalt Christ in prayer and bridge-building community events.
In Joel 2:12, a nation at the crossroads receives a God-provided solution to their need when they are told to "return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning" (contrition and humility). In that day, the command was for everyone to stop what they were doing and gather for a "sacred assembly," to turn to God with prayer and fasting.
"I just want to say thank you so much for organizing this incredible day and allowing GOD to use you to put this event together. I thank GOD for the opportunity and ability to attend this crucial event. I was blessed by the young woman that lead us in worship and the man that facilitated the gathering. May the LORD continue to strengthen and keep you ALL and continue to use you for HIS glory."
Together, we absolutely celebrated Black History month together at the William "Hicks" Anderson Community Center in Wilmington in February. This ‘Festival of Hope’ was truly an amazing event with a variety of activities and resources for all community members! Nearly 200 were able to participate in the no-charge, ‘fresh start’ expungement clinic and job fair; therein beginning the process of clearing criminal records and setting sail towards better employment and housing opportunities. Hundreds more participated in gathering free bags full of groceries, and new, winter wear, clothing put a smile on many attendees’ faces. Also present were numerous local resource agencies. The grand finale, free soul food dinner was a delightful way to bring the community together; and all the while fresh Gospel music provided and enriching atmosphere for all attendees.
The Festival of Hope, Wilmington was a great success that brought joy, opportunity and positivity to all who attended.
