Day of Renewal | Chicago 2017


Tuesday, March 28, 2017
9am – 9pm
Chicago Tabernacle | Chicago, IL

In place of our regular spring event at The Brooklyn Tabernacle, Strategic Renewal is excited to partner with The Chicago Tabernacle for the first time ever, in providing an opportunity for you to experience what God can do when His people come together to pray.

Chicago Tabernacle is a great example of what happens when a church focuses on prayer. Chicago Tabernacle was started in 2002 by Pastor Al Toledo, and his wife, Chrissy Cymbala Toledo. Chrissy is the daughter of Pastor Jim and Carol Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Al and Chrissy met at The Brooklyn Tabernacle, and consequently, Chicago Tabernacle is very much a more modern expression of the beloved congregation in Brooklyn.

Enjoy three teaching sessions taught by Daniel Henderson (President of Strategic Renewal) and Pastor Al Toledo (Sr Pastor of The Chicago Tabernacle). Get an inside glimpse of the ministry at Chicago Tabernacle, interact on a more personal level with Pastor Al & Chrissy Toledo, and be inspired to see what a prayer culture could look like in your church!

Finish off this great experience by attending Chicago Tabernacle’s weekly prayer gathering. This gathering is attended by hundreds each week, and you will be blessed as you watch God working in the midst of His people. Make plans today to join together with people from all over the country for a day of prayer and teaching!

We’re blowing the Shofar, and praying over Chicagoland!  The 3rd Annual CMBA Prayer Conference is scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017.  We’ll start w/preparatory prayer workshops at Uptown Baptist Church, and travel to the “Sears” Tower in the afternoon to participate in a Rooftop Prayer Encounter.

* What is the cost?  $25.00 per person plus an EventBrite electronic service & processing fees of $2.37.

* What will we study?  What will we do?

      In the A.M., in preparation for the afternoon, CMBA pastors & teachers will lead prayer classes including “Hindrances to Prayer,” and “Prayer & Spiritual Warfare.” Chicagoland (city & suburbs) needs prayer to impact, push back against “Lostness,” so there will be a practicum to engage conferees in prayer & intercession.  We will also receive an overview of Rooftop Prayer, and introduction on our Rooftop Prayer Encounter.

      > In the P.M., pastors & conferees will take part in a Rooftop Prayer Encounter at the “Sears” Tower. We will seek God for the City interceding in a guided prayer time based on Acts 10 led by Rooftop, U.S. Pioneer, Rev. John Whaley.

Due to logistical and security requirements at Sears Tower, all participants must register in advance & Photo IDs are required.  Also, street parking at the church is limited, so carpooling is recommended.  If volume warrants, we will secure bus transportation to & from Sears Tower.  Otherwise, designated validated parking for Sears Tower is available for $15.00. Details on this will be shared at the conference.

We hope you can make it!
