Leading Intercessions (self-paced course)

All Christians are called to share in the ministry of Christ’s intercession for the whole world.  Often in our worship service, we are led in prayer by others. The task of leading such prayers is both a privilege and a responsibility. It can also be quite daunting!  This course offers encouragement and ideas to help all involved with this important role.
