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.

Allen appointed to lead LFTL; Greene steps down

Rick Allen, a nationally-appointed U.S. Assemblies of God missionary, has been appointed by the Executive Presbytery as the new national director of Light for the Lost effective January 1, 2013.

Allen is currently a national church consultant with Healthy Church Network and has played a significant role in the development of the Acts 2 Church model. Previously he served as the district church enrichment director of the Arkansas District Council in a mentoring ministry. He has also served as a senior pastor at churches in Arkansas and Tennessee as well as a youth pastor in Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee.

"Rick has a servant's heart coupled with a passion for reaching the lost," says Assistant General Superintendent Alton Garrison, who oversees AG Church Ministries. "I believe he will creatively and effectively guide Light for the Lost in continuing its powerful ministry around the world."

Allen will be succeeding Tom Greene, the national director for Light for the Lost and Men's Ministries for the past 8 years.

Greene, who previously served as the national Youth Ministries director for a total of 5 years (1997-98, 2001-05), has served with distinction, Garrison says.

"Tom brought his energy and expertise in guiding youth seamlessly into leading our Fellowship's men," Garrison states, "and his leadership of Light for the Lost has been tremendous. We pray the Lord provides even greater opportunities for Tom's gifted ministry in the future."

General Superintendent George O. Wood echoes Garrison's statement. "Tom has provided highly adept and passionate leadership to several ministry areas of the national offices," Wood says. "His clarity of vision, selfless sacrifices and skilled ministry are just a few of his remarkable leadership qualities. He will be missed."

"I am thoroughly excited for the opportunity to continue to blaze the trail for Light for the Lost," says Allen, who will retain his status as a U.S. missionary. "Tom Greene has given great vision and leadership to LFTL over the last eight years, and it is an honor to accept the torch from him. I look forward to partnering with national and district LFTL teams as we endeavor to reach the lost.

"I am praying and trusting God to give guidance and wisdom for the journey ahead of us," Allen continues. "I am grateful and blessed to join this amazing ministry of evangelism to reach people around the world and across your street with the gospel of Jesus Christ."
