Clarifying Our Values
As week seek to connect gatherings together into a 24-7 schedule, the following values give clarity unto the type of gatherings that would be appropriate to add to the statewide 24-7 calendar.
- Ministry to the Lord – vertical ministry (worship, prayer and presence), not horizontal ministry (teaching, fellowship, church service, etc.)
- Worship with prayer – prayer “in the spirit of the tabernacle of David” with the goal of including live musical worship (recorded music may be used initially)
- Citywide/Regional Emphasis – prayer & intercession with a focus beyond one church congregation or ministry – praying for the city, region and/or nations
- Corporate Prayer & Worship – two or more gathered in His name
While we validate the importance of many types of church gatherings, God has given us a specific vision for 24-7 North Carolina based on the values above. In light of that, the following would not be appropriate to add to the 24-7 calendar:
- Church services & fellowship meetings
- Gatherings where worship & prayer are not the primary activity
- Individual one-person prayer times & prayer chains
- Church prayer meetings that focus only on the needs of that one congregation
