2014 Regional School of Prayer

The 2014 School of Prayer, sponsored and facilitated by The Better Place, Inc., will be presented in four full-day sessions. Each session will stand alone, so participants may come to one or two or all four. The School will be held from 8:30am – 4:00pm on Saturdays.

This year all sessions of the School will be held in the theater on the 4th floor of the Willow Bay Commerce Center, 21 East 3rd Street (at the corner of Pine) in Jamestown, NY. This is in the heart of downtown Jamestown.
There is plenty of oneet parking around the Willow Bay building. All parking is free on Saturdays, so you will not have to feed the meters.


The cost is forty-five dollars for the first session anyone attends and thirty-five dollars for subsequent sessions attended. (For example, if the first session attended is Session #2, the cost is $45 for Session #2 and subsequent sessions attended will cost $35). Lunch, snacks and a 3-ring binder with note taking materials are included in this cost.

To equip the Church in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Ontario to be a house of prayer for the nations.

To serve as a place where pastors and other ministry leaders can partake of Sabbatical experiences that will result in their being renewed in spirit, soul, and body.

To provide leadership to network the Body of Christ for the purpose of receiving the promise of Second Chronicles 7:14.

This ministry is here for all of God’s people as well as for the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers who serve to equip us all for ministry.
We hope to see you soon at The Better Place.
