One brisk morning in Washington, Jay discovered a prayer service at a nearby Korean church. This vibrant time of prayer was unlike any other — the gathered believers spent the entire hour fervently crying out to God together. As the service drew to a close, Jay found the pastor and asked, “Do you do this every morning?” The pastor looked surprised and said, “Oh, no! On Sundays we worship.”

Why do we lack this passion for prayer? Sometimes we feel too exhausted to pray, or we might only pray a few desperate sentences when we feel overwhelmed. God wants us to cry out to Him in those times, but if you’re limiting your prayer life to desperate circumstances, you’re missing out on the true richness of prayer.

You can gather with Jay and other local believers for times of fellowship and prayer. These prayer meetings are relatively spontaneous, meeting all over town or wherever Jay’s traveling takes him. Whether you’re learning how to pray, need to get back in the habit, or are already “praying without ceasing”, we’d love for you to join us.

It all started with red beans and rice.

For decades, Jay and Jerilyn have welcomed friends into their home every Monday for a classic New Orleans dinner of red beans and rice and a time of prayer. From there, Jay’s ministry has evolved and expanded, but that commitment to fellowship remains a staple in their discipleship method.

Whether you’re a seasoned believer, a minister, or a brand new Christian, God uses others in the Body of Christ to encourage you in your walk with God. No matter your maturity, we need one another. A powerful way to grow spiritually is through meeting one-on-one or with a small group of believers who can “stir you up to love and good works” (Hebrews 10:24).

If you’re interested in meeting in Greater New Orleans or over the phone, call Jay to start a discipleship relationship.

Community Ministry

When you have a vision for loving your community, God usually doesn’t want you to tackle it alone. Your relationships with other ministers can open doors for collaboration and joint Gospel efforts. But knowing the right people to get a project off the ground isn’t always easy.

Because of his vast array of ministry experiences, Jay can connect you with the people and resources you need to jumpstart your vision and get your ministry up and running. Whether you need a facility, an experienced ministry to learn from, a food distribution service, a publication company, or any other number of ministry components, you’ll have the advantage of Jay’s personal contacts on your side.
