Assemblies of God missionaries, Skyping in from around the world, will share their testimonies and urgent prayer needs during a focused time of seeking the Lord through the global online World Prayer Meeting coming in May. Recorded live by Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland, with host pastor Mark Lehman, this annual hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 - Ascension Day.

"As we join together in prayer, we anticipate answers to prayer and breakthroughs among unreached peoples who have yet to hear the hope of the gospel," says AGWM Communications Director Randy Hurst. "In 2013, more than 30 percent of AGWM personnel were involved in ministry to unreached people groups. That number continues to grow."

The World Prayer Meeting's first webcast begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and available online immediately thereafter.

"Prayer for divine intervention and empowerment in our mission is not an option: It is an absolute necessity," says Greg Mundis, AGWM executive director. "We will only accomplish God's purposes and the specific individual tasks He has for us as a mission if we can marshal a spiritual army of intercessors to pray that God will open doors among the unreached and protect and sustain our missionaries." 

"Individuals are encouraged to participate in this inspiring event," Hurst says, "but if your church has the compatible technical capabilities, please consider projecting the broadcast in the sanctuary and use the prayer meeting in your regular Wednesday evening service."

Jeff Hartensveld, AGWM mobilization director who will be leading the prayer meeting says, "Imagine, if we pray with an urgency to match the times and days we are living in, what the Lord will do!"

To help direct prayers during and following the event, AGWM has created six prayer cards, one from each of the six AGWM geographic regions.

"Each card includes a brief message from the regional director concerning the prayer focus," Hurst explains. "However, if you plan to use these cards in conjunction with the World Prayer Meeting, they must be ordered by May 16." To acquire cards, call (800)-988-6568.

The site of the World Prayer Meeting broadcast is currently being developed, but once the site is ready, the link will be posted on the AGWM home page and in an upcoming AG News release.

Glen D. Cole, the well-known and highly respected Assemblies of God minister who built Capital Christian Center (AG) in Sacramento, California, into a megachurch, passed away Tuesday of an apparent heart attack. He was 78.

Cole, an avid golfer and in apparent good health, was found unresponsive in his car in the parking lot of Trinity Life Center (AG) in Sacramento. He could not be revived. Cole had accepted the pastorate of Trinity Life Center in 2008 and had guided its growth from about 150 to a congregation of more than 1,100.

A former member of the AG Executive Presbytery (1985-95) and the former Northern California-Nevada District Superintendent (1997-2004), Cole was regarded as a compassionate leader and a visionary who relied upon God's Word to form his opinions and direction in life.

"Brother Cole was a great champion of the gospel and a great promoter of missions," said AG General Superintendent George O. Wood in a written statement. "Whatever he put his hand to prospered. He was a good friend to me, always caring and supportive."

A graduate of Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, Cole began his ministry at Bethel Temple in Dayton, Ohio, in 1956. He was ordained by the Ohio District in 1959. He would go on to pastor churches in Marion, Ohio; Maple Valley, Washington; Seattle, Washington; and Olympia, Washington; before accepting the pastorate of Capital Christian Center (then known as Bethel Temple) in Sacramento in 1978, growing the church to about 5,000. He retired in 1995, becoming the Northern California-Nevada District superintendent from 1997-2004. In 2004, he joined his son, Rick, as the executive pastor at Capital Christian Center until 2006. He responded to the request to pastor again in 2008 as senior pastor of Trinity Life Center.

Cole is survived by his wife of 58 years, Mary Ann; sons Randy (Joanne) and Rick (Cathy); and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Monday, February 20, in the Capital Christian Center auditorium, 9470 Micron Ave., Sacramento. The service will also be live-streamed from the Capital Christian Center website.
