Prayer & Passion DTS

July 20 - October 9

Prayer & Passion DTS

If you have a love for prayer and the deep intimacy with God it brings, this DTS is for you!

In Luke 11, the disciples asked, “Lord, teach us how to pray”. Like the disciples, when we learn to pray, the benefits are obvious; we know God’s heart better, grow in intimacy with Him, and understand the power of prayer like never before! Are you ready to draw close to the heart of God and discover what beats on the inside? It’s more than just experiencing that place of intimacy that comes from prayer, but learning to live out of it. Let what beats in your heart come into alignment with what beats in His and MAKE YOUR LIFE A HOUSE OF PRAYER!



Prayer is a vital part of our lives as believers. Over the lecture phase we will unpackage the Lord’s prayer even more, learning to be a people who desire to see His kingdom come and His will to be done in our lives and on the earth.

We’ll also discover the importance of prayer personally, corporately, and for the nations, the link between prayer, worship, and spiritual warfare, and the power of praying Scripture. Discover how prayer can be an engine room for life!

Other opportunities and activities include participating or leading our weekly base-wide intercession times, and exploring our extensive prayer walk in our amazing valley, complete with 30ft waterfall. Take time to soak in the Lord’s presence in our Prayer Chapel, or Whare Karakia (In the native language). There may also be Bible-reading marathons, Prayer and Fasting weekends, and prayer ministry and evangelism.
