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.
