The prayer team will lead the church to be prayerful in all matters. Under the guidance of the elders, the prayer team will lead and promote a prayer emphasis in the church through prayer events/services, ministry-directed prayer (prayer partners for mission teams and other special ministry projects), and situational prayer guidance (current events, elections, decisions in the church, etc.). The stated goal is that Good Hope would be a prayer-centered church, with all ministries, ministry leaders, missions, and decisions being covered in prayer by the congregation.
