NE Ohio Pilot

NE Ohio Pilot – IT’S TIME!

The Ohio state motto is: “With God, all things are possible.”
Ohio is the only state that has a scripture for its state motto! – Matthew 19:26

God is doing extraordinary things as we plan the Prayer at the Heart (PATH) pilot in NE Ohio.

“…that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23

In line with John 17:23, the vision is for thousands of Christians, from every ‘tribe, tongue and age group’ to link arms in our unity in Jesus Christ. To be mobilized through local churches and ministries to pray and share God’s love and light across NE Ohio through acts of loving kindness and verbal witness.

 If you are a follower of Jesus, we encourage you to consider what God has placed in your hands, and how you could now use your gifts and abilities to serve and bless the ‘lost and the broken.’

 Maybe you have a heart for the poor or the orphans and widows, or maybe you have a special gift of empathy, whereby you are able to offer comfort to the broken-hearted, because of the suffering you have experienced (2 Corinthians 1:4). Perhaps you’re already using your gifts in your local church.

 What we humbly ask you to consider is to link arms with other members of the wider Church for a 40-day period to serve and bless the ‘lost and broken’ in your part of NE Ohio.

 Whatever ministry you choose, experienced experts will give you information and training on how to participate in the 40 days of prayer, care and share, starting on May 8th 2023 and ending with a central gathering on June 17th 2023, to give thanks and praise to God for all He has done.

 Undergirding everything is a powerful team of prayer warriors and intercessors.

Mission, Vision and Strategy

How the strategy works

Please choose one or more of the ministries below and click to join with other Christians in NE Ohio to share Jesus’ love and light with the ‘lost and the broken.’

Churches

We want to ‘link arms’ with hundreds of churches in NE Ohio.

Our prayer is that thousands of people will come to faith in Christ during the 40 days of prayer, care and share and in the central gathering on June 17th 2023.

New believers and people who want to know more about Christ, will be directed to a church near where they live.

Please consider if and how you might be able to help with any of the Functional Mission teams such as helping the poor or the widows and orphans. For example, you may already be reaching out to the ‘lost and broken’ through your own initiatives, and you can link these into what is being planned, for example, with leadership and other resources.
