Week of Prayer materials ready for use!

The annual Week of Prayer has been a cornerstone of our work for many NMs since the start of our PFI movement. It is a great way to reach out to new churches and encourage existing partners to focus prayer on our ministry.

We have chosen three designs from previous years and removed the dates to allow you to use them whenever you choose. Along with PDF files, we have added Word documents so that you can select your preferred design, customize the content and translate the material into any language you choose.

NEW!!! Restorative Justice news letter

Our response starts with a vision, or a hope, that I believe the Spirit stirs in each person’s heart if they are still and actively listening: shalom. Shalom is God’s vision for his kingdom on earth, where we live in right relationship with God, one another, and creation. When shalom fills our communities, they become vibrant, and flourish in all dimensions for all people, especially the most vulnerable and marginalized.
