Leading Prayer & Prophetic Trainings
At Bridgeway, we offer Prayer and Prophetic Trainings 3-4 times a year on weekend mornings. The trainings usually last for 1.5-2 hours. The sessions are led by 1-3 members of our Prophetic Leadership Team. After the teaching portion of the training, we launch into a practice time. Attendees are asked to break into smaller groups of 5-10 people. Our Extended Prophetic Team serves as small group leaders for the practice portion of both trainings. We encourage attendees to avoid being in the same group as a spouse or close friend. Practicing to hear from the Lord is best evidenced when one is unfamiliar with those in their group.
Prophetic ministry is closely tied to praying for other people. A strong prayer ministry inside and outside the church results in a stronger prophetic ministry.
Prophetic Training 2
We also offer a Prophetic Training 2 workshop for anyone who has already gone through the initial Prophetic Training (what we refer to as "Prophetic Training 1"). During this time, attendees participate in a variety of prophetic exercises and receive more in-depth teaching. Prophetic Training 2 takes place at the same time as the Prophetic Training 1 in a different part of our building.
