Water the Plants October Prayer Summit

October 30, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Find fun, faith, and fellowship at October Summit

With our virtual Water the Plants Prayer Summits, New Church Ministry has the opportunity to hear from supporters of the new church movement.

Led by host and Associate Minister for New Church Strategies Joi Robinson, attendees pray alongside coaches, regional and general ministers, and members of congregations across the United States and Canada. These online gatherings include scripture showers, live musical performances, and testimony from various church planters about how prayer influenced the development of their emerging places of worship.

Registration is now available for the fall Prayer Summit.


Water the Plants is a church-wide initiative that aims to bring together 1,000 intercessors to pray for the leaders and congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the U.S. and Canada. The challenges of starting a church are unique. Prayer is a vital component in congregation and community development. 

This program gathers a team of dedicated supporters of new worship expressions every week to prioritize the spiritual discipline of prayer. Based on 1 Corinthians 3:6, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow,” we will take a proactive approach to “watering” DoC church “plants” with prayer (Living Water).

As part of their Covenant Agreement, intercessors are expected to:

  • embrace a lifestyle of prayer
  • regularly join a Water the Plants Prayer Group by phone for an 11-minute prayer led by a Prayer Leader
  • receive regular communication regarding additional prayer topics by email, text and/or social media
  • provide your mailing address to receive Prayerphenalia – one item of your choice that will remind you to pray (keychain or wristband).

To become an intercessor, please read and complete this form to confirm your interest or text water the plants to 97000.
