Prayer Center MinistriesIn addition to the churches, other prayer strategies are organized out of the Light of the World Prayer Center in Bellingham, WA. Director Jason Hubbard and Prayer Center personnel oversee seven transformation team leaders who, in turn, work with their own team members to discern and pray into the Father’s transformation agenda for each sphere. Each team meets quarterly to discuss prayer items and ongoing transformation strategies. Leaders of the seven transformation teams also come together periodically for sharing, for across-the-seven-spheres vision casting, and for encouragement. Other Whatcom County prayer-oriented ministries include:
- approximately 100 hours a week of prayer and worship at the Prayer Center.
- three groups of senior pastors who meet every month for city/county-focused prayer.
- 50 lead pastors meeting quarterly to pray together on behalf of the county.
- 30 youth pastors who meet monthly at the Prayer Center for spiritual bonding and prayer.
- three weekly county-wide ministries for men, which involve men from 40 different local churches. One of the ministries has a membership that tops 200.
- 1,000-plus students and 70 faculty members from Western Washington University working and praying together for Kingdom advances.
