What is the Men's Prayer Advance?

Every Advance features heart-directed preaching, heart-felt congregational worship, and heart-to-heart fellowship. We have no axes to grind and no agendas to promote. Our singular purpose is a spiritual encounter with the living Christ.

This Year's Theme:


Prayer has several components, and one of them is implementing the will of God upon earth. “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in Heaven.”

Behind this veil called time is an eternal plan. Through prayer we discover divine purposes.

Spurgeon said, “Believing supplications are forecasts of the future.”

Heaven works in cooperation with the prayers of God’s people on earth. Prayer brings the future into the present, and brings eternity to bear upon time.

Revival, Rejuvenation, and moral Reset are God’s will. Join other hungry hearts for the upcoming Prayer Advances. Our sole aim is to realize God’s will—ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN!

WOW! What an incredible day yesterday! My newest son-in-law and one of the men from our Church – all of us were powerfully convicted, challenged, and moved yesterday!

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gifts given to us through Jesus Christ our Lord! Gifts clearly displayed at the Advance for the Glory of God our Father, the praise of His Son, the testifying of the Holy Spirit and the building up of the body of Christ!

Best Advance ever for me!!! God taught me so much!!

2 saved this morning!!!

What an awesome Prayer Advance, I’m so glad nothing hindered me from being able to go this year. Your speakers were the best and I took quite a bit away from the meetings. I was truly blessed.

It was an awesome Prayer Advance! David Gibbs rings the bell every time. We were encouraged, blessed, rebuked, reproved and challenged. Thanks for being available to God!

Along with my Pastor I just attended my first Advance....Soul Shaking!!! for sure. 750 strong Christian men praising and glorifying our God whose presence abounded throughout. If a man didn't  leave lifted, renewed, informed and carrying a desire to be more Brother, you need to be checked for a pulse.

The Advance has been such a help to our men. God has clearly spoken to all our hearts, and helped both of the men that came with me. The spiritual growth in the past 40 hours has been visible.

Looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us at the 2020 Advance as we again meet to praise and glorify him.
