“The ministry of Athens Prayer NetworWoffordFamilyk has been pivotal in Young Harris Memorial UMC hearing God’s call for repentance, reconciliation, and renewal in Athens.  Steve’s work is a guidepost to God for our staff, our congregation, and me.  We could not do this without this ministry to God.  When I arrived as the new minister at Young Harris Memorial UMC, I was without a deep, spirit-filled, spirit-led connection to the ministry happening in Athens.  My wife and I had a two-month-old and we were alone.  After one year of feeling very isolated and beaten down by ministry, God answered our prayers as He brought Steve into our life.  Steve is present to pray regularly, he draws others to join in prayer, and he disciples other with prayer at the center.  This Church in Athens is united for the ministry of Jesus like I have never before seen or heard in any other city in America!  I attribute this to the faithfulness of Athens Prayer Network’s ministry.” Lead Pastor – Young Harris Memorial United Methodist Church, Athens GA www.yhmumc.com
