Over thirty residents of Whitley County gathered together this morning for their inaugural City Movement prayer gathering, hosted by Lead with Faith Whitley County. Six months in the making, this day arrived sooner than anticipated – and on a snow day.
Mid 2019, Columbia City resident Jeremy Swonger, attended a prayer gathering in Fort Wayne, led by Parkview Health CEO Mike Packnett. Attendance to Allen County’s monthly prayer meeting has been increasing since the gathering’s inception in 2018. During Jeremy’s first prayer gathering visit, he was moved to ask the question, “How can we do this in Whitley County?
meeting across the county in various locations, the Whitley County chapter of National Day of Prayer, various churches, folks burdened for their neighbors, and via prayer walks at the heart of Whitley County – the courthouse. We believe today’s gathering is the culmination of years of prayer, and trust collectively joining forces on a monthly basis will provide direction on living out, and being led by, faith in our day to day lives and interactions with those we cross paths with every day in Whitley County.
Now connected to the intercessors of Whitley County, Jeremy and Mike hosted a luncheon for the Ministerial Association of Whitley County, to share the vision of saturating Whitley County with the Gospel. Over fifty individuals joined for this gathering in January 2020. Jeremy initially hoped to kick-off monthly prayer gatherings in April 2020. However, the enthusiasm and momentum built during the luncheon inspired the Lead with Faith Whitley County leadership team to trust for what seemed like an outstanding goal.
