purpose driven team
How It All Began:
The Purpose Driven Team was born when three different family members in the Barrel Nation Novlet Green, Carolyn McLean and Marcia White in different geographical locations decided to embark on a spiritual journey to discover “what on earth they are here for”. The only thing the group had in common was a copy of “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren. 5am Monday through Saturday was chosen as the dedicated time as there would have been minimal distraction at this time. Within the first two months, having completed the Purpose Driven Life and reaffirming the benefits of the early morning devotion they decided to continue as they found they were better equipped to handle the issues of the day. The next book “Prayer Warriors Way” by Cindy Trim was chosen and the invitation was extended to Tricia Gordon to be a part of the group. At the end of which the group decided to revisit the Purpose Drive Life. An open invitation was extended to the Barrel Nation Family. This resulted in an instant increase in number as Barrel Nation family, church family and friends joined the group. This growth in number witnessed the evolution of the Purpose Driven Prayer Team stepping into a new purpose as the group became the prayer team for the Barrel Nation group and started providing devotion at the start of all Barrel Nation Family programs daily.
Our Identity Today:
The 47 members of the Purpose Driven Prayer team led by Novlet Green of the Bahamas, transcends all international boarders; spreading across several states within the USA, Canada, England, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Jamaica and Spain. Like the words of 1 Corinthians 12:12 states clearly “ For as the body is one, and hath many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.” We the Purpose Driven Prayer Group can be likened to that one body in 1 Corinthians 12:12 with many members. Each member in the group is essential in the continued daily growth and development of this body. In the Purpose Driven Prayer group each member supports, teaches and nurtures each other in their daily Christian walk. The group currently has four administrators and our own Barrel Nation Resident Pastor, and now pastor for some members of the Prayer group, Pastor Jean Roper who comes on daily to fellowship with the group, learning as she teaches.
Our primary mission, at the end of the completing the “Purpose Driven Prayer Life” is for each of us to identify our purpose in life.
Our main purpose is Kingdom building as we spread the word of God far and wide.
The Purpose Driven Prayer Team firmly believes that nothing beats prayer but prayer beats everything. This belief is strengthened by the daily praise report coming from the prayer team members and other Barrel Nation family members as we ask in faith and watch God answers.
You are invited to join our monthly all night prayer every first Friday from 10 pm until the Holy Ghost says when.
The Purpose Driven Group firmly believes that the family that prays together also plays together. Join us on Friday evenings at 7pm for an exciting game of sword in hand, led by Charmaine Williams.
In January, guided by the words of Habakkuk 2:2 to “Write the vision, make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it” 10 members of the Purpose Driven Group from New York & New Jersey met to discuss their vision at a weekend long vision retreat.
It is the desire of the Purpose Driven Group for God to continue to transform each member of the group to a higher spiritual realm according to the plans that he has for us, to prosper us and not to harm us and to give us hope for the future.
