These ministries include the different prayer groups, altar assistants, and home & hospital visitation.
Prayer Partner Teams
Our Elders are joined by members of our church who have been trained in the Word of God and who are committed to pray in agreement with you. They are available around the altars during sunday services and special events.
New Life Partners
These are caring and mature believers who are dedicated to partner with those who are new in their faith. They come along side to encourage new believers as they take their first steps on this exciting journey. They are available to answer questions, pray with them and to just be a friend. Information to help them on their new journey is provided by the Billy Graham Association.
Director: Pastor Judy Hemmila
Men and women who have a heart to serve in those sensitive moments around the altars, are trained to assist the pastors and prayer partners during times of ministry and their kindness to those being prayed for brings great comfort and peace.

G.A.P. (God's Appointed People) A Ministry of Intercession
This ministry is based on Ezekiel 22:30, when God asked, "Who will stand in the gap?" Our pre-service prayer meets @ 9:15am every Sunday morning, in the prayer room. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. (Communion is available).
Director: Shirlee Kamstra
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The compassion and love invested in each stitch and design has been combined with hours of prayer. The purpose of the shawl is to literally 'wrap' a person in prayers of comfort, healing, and strength. Want to know more about this ministry?
Contact person: Shirlee Kamstra
We call our corporate prayer on Thursday evenings from 7-8:15pm, 'BonFire Prayer'. When groups of people gather around a fire, we call it a 'Bonfire'. The more logs added to the fire, the greater the flames. When others join us in prayer, they are actually bringing another spiritual log to add to the 'Bonfire'. We have experienced many personal healings, rejoiced over lost loved ones coming to Jesus and hear regular praise reports of answered prayer. It is our sincere hope that the families of Crossfire Church and the entire body of Christ will wakeup and realize the importance of participating in weekly 'Bonfire Prayers'. We invite you to put a log on the fire.
