2018 Prayer Conference at Berea First Baptist Church

Join us as we welcome Mark Bearden for our annual Prayer Conference. Year after year, our church and community are able to hear from amazing leaders in the area of prayer. It is an area of our relationship with God that can continually grow. Our theme for this year is “Experiencing Personal Revival through your Prayer Life”. Have you ever considered that the starting point for a renewed relationship with God might be in your prayer life? That is what we are going to discover as we join together in January for our Prayer Conference.

Each session will be practical and impactful and we encourage you to make plans to attend. Each of the services will take place in the Main Sanctuary. We look forward to your involvement in this great event.

There are parking spaces directly in front of our Sanctuary with ample handicap spaces to assist you.

Where to Enter
Please enter through the Main Sanctuary doors or through the Welcome Center doors. There you will be greeted by one of our ushers who can assist you if needed.

What ages?
We believe this event will be geared toward students through adults.

Is there a charge for this event?
There is no charge for this event.  We will take up an offering during the services to offset the expense of this conference.

We are grateful to have Mark lead our 2018 Conference.


Jesus Christ transforms lives!  In our 3rd Annual Prayer Conference, Daniel Henderson led us to discover God’s power in a fresh way by changing the way we pray.  In the sessions of our Prayer Conference, Daniel Henderson shared with us how to:

  • CHANGE from seeking God’s HAND to seeking His FACE
  • CHANGE from a heart of WORRY to a life of WORSHIP
  • CHANGE from a struggle with FEAR to an experience of FREEDOM
  • CHANGE from feelings of ISOLATION to the power of INTIMACY
  • CHANGE from a sense of INDIFFERENCE to a legacy of IMPACT

When we experience the profound difference of God-focused worship-based prayer, our faith and lives will never be the same. Thank you to all who attended the Prayer Conference.

As a Senior Pastor for over two decades, Daniel Henderson brought prayer-based revitalization to several mega-churches. Today he is dedicating his full-time efforts to help congregations across the country experience renewal and turnaround as he speaks to thousands each year at conferences and prayer events. He is President of Strategic Renewal, which exists to ignite personal renewal, congregational revival, and leadership restoration for Christ’s glory.
