What congregation does not deal with conflict to some degree or another? In some cases, this conflict has reached the level where the church is being split. In other cases, church leadership is in crisis due to personal and family breakdowns.
We live in an increasingly post-Christian culture which is hostile to Biblical faith and to our Judeo-Christian values and morality.
Congregations that seek to be faithful witnesses to Jesus Christ, hold true to the Bible as the Word of God, and to move in the power of the Holy Spirit, are under an assault that is both cultural and demonic.
All of this is due to the very deep reality of human sin which taints every dimeson of human life, and every human institution, including the church of Jesus Christ.
The remedy is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being born again into the Kingdom of God where we are in the process of sanctification. The preaching of the Word of God, biblical teaching, Bible study, congregational life and ministry all have a role.
We as spiritual leaders of the Church (Ruling, Teaching Elders, Pastors, and church leaders) are often well equipped through our seminary training and pastoral experience in these critical areas of providing the pastoral work.
But our training and experience often neglects the spiritual and demonic dimension behind the human sinfulness and human organizational dynamics, which St. Paul spoke of when he said:
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens."
Ephesians 6:12 NET
At this event, you will find a safe context where you can
We will draw on our Dunamis Project which has equipped leaders for growing the church and advancing the Kingdom of God in Canada, UK, USA and nations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
You’ll hear from leaders from the frontlines of spiritual warfare in local congregations and in missions, as they share their case studies of actual encounters with demonic strongholds in local congregations.
We are eager to pass on to you what we have learned, often through terrible wilderness experiences.
Some of the specific topics:
Maybe you have been emotionally, spiritually and even physically wounded by conflicts in the church. Maybe you have had to contend with curses and demonic attacks.
We are offering healing and deliverance prayer ministry by well-equipped teams.
There is an assessment process that is used to provide the right team and ministry for you. (Note this is NOT a counseling service. It is prayer for physical, emotional and spiritual healing, in the name of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. If there are demonic spirits involved it may also include deliverance ministry.)
February 22-25, 2021
We will start with dinner on the 22nd and finish in the evening on the 25th for departures on the 26th.

$10 - online access fee
PRMI has found that when online events have zero registration fees, there is a high no-show rate, plus spam registrations from automated bots that fill out forms.
As some of our multi-day events require materials, prayer coverage, and small group planning, a small on-line registration fee will help PRMI manage the resources to support the meeting and keep unnecessary registrations from clogging the system.
As is true of all of PRMI events and consistent with the Faith Basis, this fee is not the event offering. All of our events are offered on a faith basis. You’ll have the opportunity to advance the work of PRMI through your offering.
All events organized by PRMI are offering based. During your event, you'll be invited to share in the vision of PRMI and give an offering towards the ministry to advance our mission of equipping people to cooperate with the Holy Spirit. Pray about how to participate long before you arrive.
Since our events focus on spiritual formation and discipleship, one segment of our events lead into the next. Thus, we encourage you to be fully present for the entire event, as much as you are able.
Rev. Dr. Brad Long Executive Director, PRMI In 1988 while a missionary in Taiwan, Dr. Brad Long received a call “to an international ministry of renewal, advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.” Since that time, he has been called to a number of nations where his role has been primarily equipping pastors and lay people in the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit. Rev. Brad Long was called as Executive Director of PRMI in 1990.
In 1991, Brad organized the first Dunamis Project in Lake George NY. From there, the Dunamis Project has equipped thousands of believers around the world. Brad has written and co-authored many books, including Receiving the Power, Collapse of the Brass Heaven, A Prayer Strategy for Victory, and Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Rev. Martin Boardman is an ordained minister of Word and Sacrament in the Christian Reformed Church and pastored in Southern Alberta before the Lord opened the door to become Dunamis Fellowship Canada’s Prayer Mobilizer working closely with PRMI in January 2017.
Dunamis answered the questions that he had about the Holy Spirit. It explained some of his life experiences in a systematic and Biblical way and opened the door to drawing closer in intimacy with the Lord. He is still putting in to practice some of the suggestions which were shared during that time.
As a result of his involvement in those Dunamis Weekends Martin became more involved with the work of PRMI and was a part of the founding board for Dunamis Fellowship Canada.
