"Supporting SKMB Churches and Camps in making disciples."

Forest Grove Intercessors

Our church has been discerning a global partnership with national leaders of a church planting initiative in Central Asia. After sending a vision team to visit in April, we were able to return the invitation and have two leaders join us for a week in our city to build relationship. We spent one day with twenty leaders and intercessors, as Mission Pastor Maryanne Berge gave the invitation to do a strategic prayer walk on May 29th.  This walk was to be around Forest Grove sites and at the locations of key ministry partners.

We began on Broadway Avenue where Brian Wiens, pastor of The Gathering, shared a bit of history of the Broadway district as well as his vision and prayer requests.  Dividing into smaller groups of 2-3,  we walked through the residential neighbourhood, praying for businesses and then crossing the river to the Chief Whitecap and John Lake statue. 

Our next stop was The Bridge ministry on 20th street where we had a guided tour of their new (as of 2016) facility.  Linda Walker (founder/director and pastor) enthusiastically shared her passion and continued vision for this ministry. After we shared a meal together, she took us to her favourite spot, the prayer room.  The presence of Jesus was tangible, and we were able to pray over her and a few of their staff.  We came to be a blessing, but each one of us left feeling like we had stood on holy ground.

The Attridge location was our next stop as we met with the staff there. Our group was divided into a representation of two generations and we had a powerful time of exchanging prayers and prophetic words as we laid hands on each other.  The power and presence of the Holy Spirit was very real.

Our final stop was at the North Site location, where we met with pastor Nathan McCorkindale and a few core members.  The Lord was gracious as we prayed over the building and the vision for this new work in the Silverwood area.

It truly was a walking out of 1 Thessalonians 5:11 as we “encouraged one another and built each other up” for the sake of the kingdom.  Prayer gives us a front row seat to what God is doing!
