 September , 2016 




Reverend Rick Torrison

Blessings my friends, 
Because of your commitment to prayer and the Church of Greater Houston we wanted to keep you updated on the progress of the Greater Houston Solemn Assembly that will be happening on October 22 at HBU in Husky Stadium.  We are inviting you to join us in prayer as we prepare to host this Solemn Assembly. We extend to you a personal invitation to attend this event  as well.   
I know that we share a mutual concern about the urgency of the hour we live in and that the only answer is Jesus. He desires to see an awakened church!
Brother John Bisagno has been carrying a burden for this city and the Church for several years.  His passion, desire and expectation has been increasing over the last year. We have continued to pray together and come along side a growing number of prayer expressions around the city. A great many of  you have been involved by attending and leading much of this effort.  There are nameless and faceless individuals we do not know.  There is a growing number of ministry leaders, intercessors and pastors all over the city who have been expressing the urgency of the hour and the need to come together as One Church in a posture of humility, worship and desperate prayer.  
Dr Bisagno has asked a group of us to help facilitate this Solemn Assembly. Thus, I am  reaching out to each of you and inviting you to join us by bringing your prayer and presence to this gathering.  There is no single sponsor or identified endorsers.  We are intentionally keeping this event a ‘nameless’ and ‘faceless’ gathering. This event will cross denominational, racial and generational lines as we come together as ONE FAMILY to lift up ONE NAME, JESUS!  
Here are the details and ways you can engage and help spread the word.  If you would like to serve on the mobilization team please let me know.  We have several areas you can serve.
  • Our marketing team is The Church – The way people will know if we share it, invite and show up.
  • Social Media – We have created a Facebook Page and Twitter account – please like and share the page
  • Create a 30 / 60 second selfie video invitation and post it online sharing you are coming and inviting others to RSVP and join you
  • Website – We have created a website with all the details, videos, resources, and registration link
  • A Prayer Force – we will begin calling the city to daily prayer and fasting on Monday.  Sign up through the website and invite others to join us.
  • Register to attend and invite your friends, networks, churches to do the same.
  • I am limited with the people we connect with but collectively we cover most of the city.  
  • Please forward this to others in the city who need to know about this gathering.
  • Host a vision meeting or conference call to spread the word.  If you would like Brother John Bisagno to be on the call he is available as well.

Dear Pastor,

We are excited to host our Passion for God/Compassion for Souls Summit this year with the theme:
 ”Awakening & A New Revival In America.” The dates are October 13-15 and the location is New Life Church, 10800 Hammerly Way.

We are even more excited to announce that registration for this year’s Summit is FREE!
I believe you would agree that we are in desperate need of the Lord’s intervention in America and across the world. Yet there is an expectation of hope, if the Church gets to where She needs to be. It starts with us. That’s why I would like to see as many people as possible gather with us as we seek the heart of the Lord.

With that in mind, I would like to ask for your help getting the word out.     

Would you consider announcing the Summit to your congregation through bulletin /website ads, inserts, stage announcements, screen shots, or social media?  

Emily from our office will be contacting you to follow up, and she can email artwork to you for these purposes. S
ome may have daytime work commitments, so we also want to encourage everyone to join us for our evening worship sessions led by Forever Jones, a wonderful family with an anointing for ushering in God’s presence. They are winners of the Stellar While we hope people will be able to join us for the entire Summit, we understand  Award and have been nominated for five Dove Awards and two Grammy Awards.

When asked how I want to celebrate my 60th birthday this October, my answer is this: I can think of no better way to celebrate than to have you–my friends, family, partners in ministry and spiritual family–joining me at the Summit, where we will hear from leaders within our ministry network and I will share what’s on my heart as a precursor for awakening within the Church for a new revival across the land.

As we celebrate 35 years of ministry, I cannot even express the deep gratitude I have for so many, like you, who have been a part of this journey.

Thank you for caring,

 Doug Stringer

Northeast Ministerial Alliance

NEMA is a network of pastors, ministry leaders and Christian businessmen from diversified backgrounds. NEMA was birthed in 1991 when a group of spiritual leaders from the greater Humble, Texas area came together to share a meal and get acquainted.  The pastor of the host church extended an invitation to everyone to meet again the next month.  All gave a unanimous shout of approval.  It was during the second gathering that nine pastors and ministry leaders requested to host the next monthly meeting. Everyone stated that they would bring another person to the coming nine-month’s gatherings.  Those attending the initial meetings in 1991 never dreamed that these network lunches and prayer meetings would continue for these many years.  God’s favor has rested upon these gatherings. The results of this favor are many.
