In the 1700’s a group of persecuted Moravian Christians found refuge in the little town of Herrnhut, Germany. They came under the care and leadership of a man named Count Zinzendorf, whose life motto was “I have one passion: It is Jesus! Jesus only!”. They grew together as a community who wanted more of God and fervently pursued His presence. One evening during a meeting, the Holy Spirit came upon the entire congregation (they called it their own "Pentecost") and the town of Herrnhut was marked forever.
Soon after their Pentecost, the group of Moravians were divinely inspired to begin day and night, 24 hour, intercession (prayer) which lasted for over 100 years! Prayer produced a desperation to see Jesus known. From this came what we now know as the modern day missions movement, inspiring the likes of John Wesley, William Carey and our own founder Loren Cunningham. What better place to be! With the same vision and passion we want to join in with what God started here over 300 years ago!
