Schedule

The promotional schedule outlines the weekly preparation we have found to be most effective. As it stresses, there is nothing more important than prayer! Begin to pray for your Every Believer a Witness as soon as you schedule it.


Things to pray for:

  1. That attendance will be fantastic.
  2. That the weather will be good.
  3. That God will prepare the hearts of your people.
  4. That this will be a watershed time in the life of the church.
  5. For anything else that you think of!
