Do your personal intercessors need to be a part of your church family/leaders? Can you talk about how you developed relationships and trust with people so that you could be that vulnerable with them about life?
They aren’t always part of Church of the Highlands. They could be family members, friends, or relationships from other churches. 3 of Pastor Chris’ personal intercessors are on staff and 4 are not.
It’s no different from your closest team members and those that really, really know you. Over time, PC implicitly trusts these people. Personal intercessors are mature. They have a burden to keep me covered. The calling isn’t so much to prayer, but it’s to you. Keeping you safe and covered.
