    The number twelve (12) is ‘governmental’ in the Scriptures.

    Initiatives within each sector – Grassroots contact to build relationships, explore confluence of ‘streams’ (Mainline, Evangelical, and Charismatic/Pentecostal), and discern “what the Holy Spirit is saying/doing” in each.

    Potential Initiatives Within Each Stream

    Mainline

    • Research Project – Discerning God’s Original Design
    • Prayer Resources – Daily Devotional (Based on Seek God For The City)
    • Liturgical Prayer Actions – Fasting, Prayer Vigils, etc. (esp. Advent/Lent)

    Father Daniel Nash Strategy for Grassroots Connecting

    The Father Daniel Nash's Strategy: Visit each sector and identifying key leaders in each who have –

    • A Call beyond their local church (A broader ‘metron.’)
    • A specific Call to prayer or to foster prayer
    • A love for the whole Body of Christ
    • A burden for spiritual awakening

    Purpose – to build relational bonds in each sector, province, and region.

    Father Daniel Nash worked closely with Evangelist Charles Phinney in the mid-19th Century. He “went before” Phinney into specific cities and towns to draw believers in denominational churches together to pray for spiritual awakening in their communities - in the unity of Spirit and in the bond of love. Phinney would follow with crusades in which over 70% of the people would be retained as responsible church members. Phinney would not conduct any meetings without Father Nash's groundwork in prayer.
