Prayer Ministries
Our Mission
To create a culture of prayer for our Conference, churches, and members that grows them deeper in their relationship with God--giving them strength, courage, and impact in their own lives, the lives of those they love, in their ministries and that ultimately impact their communities. 

Some of the ways we seek to do this:
  • Pennsylvania Prayer Partners -- a team of people committed to joining our team in prayer. Monthly eblasts are sent out with prayer requests and answers to prayers. (Learn more below.)
  • Blue Mountain Academy's Prayer Patch -- a team of people committed to coming along side a BMA student for the school year, praying for them, sending them notes of encouragement, and sometimes a small care package. (Learn how to get involved below.) 
  • Weekly Church Prayer Focus -- Each week churches across Pennsylvania join together to pray for a specific pastor and church district with a different district each week. (See our list below for the current focus.)
  • Monthly School Prayer Focus -- Each month churches across Pennsylvania join together to pray for a specific principal and school with a different school each month. 
  • Prayer Rooms and Seminars at Conference events
  • Sermons and seminars for local churches as requested

Pennsylvania Prayer Partners
Join our team in praying for the specific needs of our Conference and ministries. As part of the Pennsylvania Prayer Partners team, you'll receive monthly emails with prayer requests and updates on needs for which we've been praying.

Blue Mountain Academy Prayer Patch

Blue Mountain Academy Prayer Patch Partners encourage students, reveal God, and make a lasting impression on young people by simply praying regularly, sending a note or card often, and sending a care package occasionally. God often times these notes and gifts to arrive just at that moment when a student needed a reminder that someone cares about them.

You can impact the life of a young person. God will use you as you partner wtih Him to pray for a student and remind them that someone cares by sending a simple card, short note, or the gift of cookies or other simple treat.

You could be the difference that gives a student hope, courage or a smile on a tough day.

Sign up today by contacting Rosemary Eyere at

You'll receive the name of a BMA student and a little bit about them.

Then pray regularly. Send a note, card or package occasionally.

God will do the rest.
