The President’s Prayer Council

The President’s Prayer Council has been a source of encouragement to President Barnes and his leadership team. This council, formed in the years of Carl Lundquist’s presidency, was “revived” during the planning and construction of Benson Great Hall.

A Pastors’ Prayer Council, sponsored by the Office of Church Ministries, began in the early 1990s and continues to meet every other month for a 7:30 a.m. prayer time.
