Frequently Asked Questions
+ Who leads the Prayer Journey?
Members of the MoveIn Vision Team as well as passionate volunteers will be leading the Prayer Journey in each region.
+ What is the purpose of the Prayer Journey?
We started the Prayer Journey in 2015 because we desire to see new praying MoveIn teams form in the unreached, urban poor communities of our cities. The Prayer Journey will raise awareness, prayer, and funds to advance this global vision.
+ Who walks/runs/cycles in the Prayer Journey?
Our teams, their friends, churches who are invested in high-needs communities, and others who are excited to pray for God to form teams in their region.
+ Will the Prayer Journey have a positive impact in the regions we journey through?
In short, yes. As people walk through patches that don't yet have a team praying for that neighbourhood, we believe that God will work in powerful ways. The Prayer Journey has been a catalyst for teams to form in new patches in various regions. Our movement places a high value on prayer and what God does when His people call out to Him.
In addition, the projects that we will be raising funds for were carefully and strategically designed to have a high impact. The funds will allow the Vision Team to bring the MoveIn vision to new regions as well as support MoveIners and teams that are already living among the unreached, urban poor.
As our only fundraising event of the year, the Prayer Journey is instrumental in sustaining and propelling this movement.
+ What can I do if I’m not a runner/cyclist?
The Prayer Journey is for anyone who is mobile! We invite all ages and families to take on this challenge to not only walk or run, but also to go through neighbourhoods you might not normally visit and pray for them.
+ When and where will the next Prayer Journey be?
Every year the locations and routes will look different as we only run through neighbourhoods that do not yet have existing teams of intentional, praying Christians. Our hope is that the neighbourhoods we walk/run through in past years, will be filled with teams, so we will then move on to new locations. We are also continuing to build a list of international (non-North American) opportunities. Stay tuned, or contact us for details.
+ Do I get a tax receipt?
Yes! For all sponsorships over $15 we will issue a Canadian tax-deductible donation receipt. Click here for more about our giving policies. Sorry we cannot issue tax-deductible receipts in countries outside of Canada.
+ How can I be involved with this movement after I’m done the Prayer Journey?
Would you consider the amazing opportunity to move into one of these difficult neighbourhoods, to be God’s salt and light in a dry and difficult place? There are ways you can be connected to existing teams in your region, depending on the region, they are likely in need of specific prayer support, resources, funds, volunteer help, and more!
