Thousands of people have already experienced the movement of A Praying Life—from reading the bestselling book by Paul E. Miller or attending a seminar at a local church. 

This seminar is not for Christians who feel victorious, but Christians defeated in the trenches, asking… How do I focus when I’m distracted with so much to do? How do I pray longer than five minutes? How do I ask when I’ve tried it before and it doesn’t work?

Delving into our frustrations, we look at Jesus’ powerful yet simple teachings on prayer. We practice becoming child-like, patterning after Jesus’ own teaching and style of praying. We learn to ask our Father anything—with eyes wide open to the story he is creating in our lives. Further practical tools and helps are explained and demonstrated. Throughout the sessions people have time to pray, making real what they learned.

Meet Jon
West Coast and East Asia Director

Over the course of nearly 20 years of pastoral ministry, church planting pastor Jon has been on a mission to experience and express the Father’s heart. When he read A Praying Life In 2009 and then hosted his first seeJesus training, he knew he’d discovered an invaluable tool. "SeeJesus changed everything about the way we do ministry!" he explains.

Now seeJesus’ Regional Director for the West Coast and East Asia, Jon has led more than 20 seminars—in places near and far. Watching people discover the depth of God’s love for them and seeing them fall deeper in love with Jesus keeps Jon teaching, preaching, traveling, and praying through it all. 

Jon admits to an obsession with coffee, which has led him to amass a considerable collection of coffee mugs from around the world. His wife of 19 years, Sonia, has recently capped his collection (although he occasionally manages to sneak in a new one). Jon and Sonia have four kids and live in San Bernadino County, CA. 

After attending the A Praying Life seminar as a pastor, then joining seeJesus staff and leading the seminar numerous times, Jon initiated our A Praying Life Pastor Cohorts. Get to know him a little here. 

Why A Praying Life Pastor Cohorts? As a pastor, I quickly got in over my head with leadership responsibilities and pastoral care needs. I'd spent years training to prepare sermons, but I had no idea how to pray through what I was facing. If the paradigm of A Praying Life is like a new and exciting workout program, the cohort is like a group training session that helps you build those habits into your life and ministry.

What happens in a typical cohort meeting? We meet for one hour per week on a web conference platform to do two things: (1) learn to pray and (2) pray. We learn through a book study, open discussions, and applying new ideas in our personal lives and ministries. Then we pray through five key areas in each of our lives and begin to watch, together, what God does. Seeing God at work in the lives of others encourages you to keep asking—even when you don’t yet see movement in your own prayer story.

What People Are Saying

“The A Praying Life Seminar is the most practical training in prayer possible, yet it is rooted in biblical theology. I highly recommend it.” 

Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York, NY

"The impact of the seminar continues to be felt here at Chessington Evangelical Church. In fact, we have been led on from it to write a church purpose statement, to re-shape our values and write a bold vision statement."  

Pastor Gareth EdwardsChessington Evangelical Church, London

“The ripples this seminar sent through our community have been lasting and significant. Perhaps no more so than the renewal in uninhibited dependent prayer. For Australians who breathe the air of cynicism, a great number of us have been drawn back into prayerfully being a part of God’s story.” 

Pastor Karl PacholkeChrist Community West, Brisbane, Australia

“Your teachings on prayer were the best I have heard. Most importantly, I have begun to pray more and more effectively. God is continuing to teach me about conversing with Him. Thank you for this precious gift.” 

Bill Mauney, Elder & VP of Retail Management, Great Outdoor Provision Co.
