Prayer Ministry Training

Do you have a heart for hurting people? Perhaps you are on a church prayer team and want to know how to pray more effectively. Or you may be someone eager to experience God's healing power through prayer for yourself or learn how to pray for your family and friends.

Prayer Ventures offers workshops, classes and personal prayer appointments to give you an opportunity to receive healing through prayer and to learn how to pray for others.

This 5-minute video describes our vision to see EVERY church in the Twin Cities be equipped with a trained prayer team to pray for people in need.

Altar Team Training

"Training was filled with valuable information ... very practical ... easy, relaxed atmosphere."

Many churches are training prayer teams to pray one-on-one with people after worship services. This is an excellent way for anyone to experience God's love in a real and personal way. These teams are often called "altar teams" because they stand at the front of the church near the altar. Prayer Ventures offers a 2-hour training specifically designed for Altar Teams.

"When someone prays face to face with you, you see God's love for you in their eyes, hear His heart for you in their words and feel His touch when they hold your hand."
