Dana is the author of PrayerPartnerProgram.com. This is a site/program to virtually raise up prayer departments in churches and ministries.
Though full time ministers themselves, their vision is that of a helps capacity to each and every church in which they minister. The Shraders also preach the message, “You Can Pray”. They do not preach, “you had better pray”, or, “you outta pray”. No. Strong scriptural support is combined with opportunity to yield to the Spirit of God. Demonstrations and manifestations of God’s presence and His power are sure to follow. The Christian is built to pray! Effectual prayer is easy and effectual prayer is fun!
Through doctrine and demonstration, they provide easy patterns for congregational members to activate and enhance their prayer lives. Once this is in place, tremendous unified power is made available for the local church. Momentum is spawned. The Shraders then harness this power by teaching on, “How to pray for your Pastor”. This exciting message demonstrates the blessed benefit of coming under the office of the Pastor. This final layer assures a safe, effectual prayer environment for each congregational member.
The Shraders help the pastor to set up prayer groups. The format is easy to replicate. It is “vanilla” in nature - that is the format remains the same to ensure safe effectual prayer. The pastor can then “add any toppings to the sundae he wants”. The program can have the flavor of each individual church added to it.
Although Lonnie and Dana are full time ministers - the vision of their itinerant ministry is that of helping to serve churches and pastors.
Lonnie and Dana Shrader base their itinerant ministry out of Thousand Oaks, California. They pastor MyChurch/Thousand Oaks California.
