About PCI (The Praying Church Initiative)

There is a gap between what the American Church and individual believers  are experiencing compared with the Church in the book of Acts. The Church in Acts was vibrant and filled with God's Presence. Of believers it was said "these men have been with Jesus".  Many believers today, however, struggle with boredom, disconnectedness, and even hidden disbelief.

At PCI, we seek to restore what has been lost by integrating prayer with worship. We call this worship-based prayer. We provide training and resources for both prayer and worship.

Listen to Senior Pastor Gary Hutchison describe what happens when the Church prays, as in the book of Acts:
