Introducing Net2Church Global Ministries
A call to love – The primary ministry of Net2Church is the ministry for the spiritual caring of pastors. We are called to answer the call of the Lord to “pastor My pastors”. Net2Church staff, volunteers, and supporters across the northeastern USA are coming together to create a ministry center with this primary focus in mind.
In 2004, David R. Thayer responded to this call that he heard clearly in his heart. Net2Church Global Ministries was founded to care for pastors and to build strong communications systems between pastors, churches, and the general Body of Christ.
Later this year (2017), N2C is seeking to establish it’s first pastoral care ministry center in the southern NH town of Winchester, on Scofield Mountain Road, at the facilities now known as Crestwood. This property was settled by Cyrus I. Scofield, as personal Chaplin for D.L. Moody, founder of the Mount Hermon School, in Northfield, MA.
In the meantime, God has called us to prepare in some excitingly different ways than we had expected coming into this year. Through the leadership of W. Scott Sullenberger, of our core ministry team (thank you, Scott), He is emphasizing the importance of establishing our chapel first. God is also revealing in us His heart for ministering to pastors through legal prayer strategies relative to courts of heaven, and has impressed upon us to become rooted with strong intercessory prayer education.
A mini-monastery? – Well, not exactly. The N2C ministry center will feature a chapel and a guest house providing men and women in the body of Christ who are called to a lifestyle of prayer with a place to come and practice this lifestyle at our ministry center.
Teams of intercessors, both men and women, will be praying around the clock seven days per week. N2C will provide housing, meals, and [eventually] a stipend for those called to serve God through prayer.
We know of no other Christian ministry that provides a monastery type system of support for both men and women serving God together in prayer. This is a first, to keep a chapel purposefully active 24/7 with prayers of both men and women in the Body of Christ, praying together in ministry teams, and being totally cared for by the ministry during their stay.
This eciting new and vibrant ministry model provides us with the spiritual backbone for all of the Net2Church ministries and particularly for ministering to pastors throughout the northeastern US.
We are involved in, and supporting the work of Annette Tuttle, of Manchester, NH, who provides workshops for the body of Christ regarding intercessory prayer. Annette is leading this effort for N2C, and many prayer houses across the state of NH. She also has a leadership (networking) role in the NH Alliance of pastors. Thank you, Annette!
Christian Art – Net2Church is committed to enable and encourage Christian artists to worship with and through their gifts as artists for Christ.
We are seeing a real need to connect artists, and we would like to begin this process across the northeastern USA and possibly expand this around the globe. Perhaps God will have us lead the way is this creative worship environment by embracing and networking Christian artists together, and providing open doors to practice “art in worship” for God’s glory.
Music and dance are already prevalent forms of worship in some churches, but we are looking to expand this into all of the seven fine arts, and see them all working together in a regional worship environment.
The fine arts include:
2. Fine painting
7. Print & Digital Media*
*Includes poetry, literature, photography, graphic arts, video, and printmaking.
