It seems that every church that has a renewed emphasis on prayer sees greater health in all areas of the church. Thom and Sam share how effective praying churches have motivated and equipped members for more powerful prayer.

    • Prayer is the power many churches are missing.
    • The pastor and other key leaders must make it a personal priority.
    • Every church needs some type of intercessory prayer ministry.
    • Prayer should include physical needs and more.
    • Jumpstart a church prayer ministry in your small groups or Sunday school classes.

Eligible high schoolers can earn college credit online, the first class is free (not including books and course materials), and they get a significant discount ($166 per credit vs. $613 per credit) for every subsequent class. They can choose from more than 30 available courses. Here are just a few additional details not included on the flier:

    • This program is open to third-culture kids, homeschool students, private and public school students, etc.
    • Students can start during any eight-week session – summer, fall, spring, each semester has two sessions as indicated on the flier
    • The first-class free offer is limited. I do not yet know for how long, but we should market it as temporary for now.
    • Many students have successfully completed courses during their normal school year. Classes are asynchronous, so they can access course materials at their convenience.
    • Sometimes universities have similar programs and they make classes specific for high school students – HS students sitting with other HS students. In our program, participants sit in on real college courses, with actual college student peers. They get the real deal through our experience.
