Rev. Fred Hartley took this vision and gave it shape. He crafted the format and initially proposed the title of College of Prayer and our vision statement. Hartley, along with his wife Sherry, selected three other pastors who had gifts to compliment his own which included Rev. Don and Marlen Young, Rev. Paul and Wanda Radford and Rev. Bruce Bliss. These pastors and wives become the first Servant Leadership Team. Armin would say, "We need to get revival into our churches. God wants to manifest His presence. We want to see every local church have an upper-room-encounter with Christ". Just as Jesus spent three years training His disciples to pray, so do we. Just as Jesus built an Upper Room worship-based prayer meeting, so do we. Just as Jesus led His followers in the Upper Room with a fresh encounter with God, so do we.
