Africa’s First College of Prayer Summit

An estimated 75 leaders from 16 African nations will gather for the College of Prayer (COP) Summit in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, July 21-25, 2009.

“We are calling College of Prayer leaders from all across Africa for our first African Summit,” says Pastor Fred Hartley, who started the college. A movement for spiritual transformation, the COP focuses on building leaders who will disciple their nations.

“It will be an historic time,” adds Hartley, who is lead pastor at Lilburn Alliance Church in Tucker, Georgia. He is returning to Abidjan to host the summit training sessions for leaders of the various Colleges of Prayer across Africa. Africa’s first COP was begun in Cote d’Ivoire eight years ago.

Summit Goal: A Strategy for Revival

“The purpose of the July summit,” Hartley continues, “is to receive God’s strategy for revival in Africa and His plan to take the College of Prayer to every people group in Africa by 2015.” He and his associates have conducted COP training sessions in a number of countries worldwide.

The upcoming summit will be held on the campus of West Africa Alliance Seminary (in French, la Faculté de Théologie Evangélique de l’Alliance Chrétienne, or FATEAC) in Abidjan. FATEAC is an Alliance seminary that emphasizes spiritual formation.
