The Harvest Is Coming



Pastor Emeritus John Bisango of First Baptist Church, Houston and The Core Team have been holding prayer meetings in churches through out the greater Houston area. The purpose of these prayer meetings is to establish a network of churches who will pray for God to bring a Revival / Visitation to this region. Pastor Bisango recently asked God to bring a Visitation/Revival to this region before He took him home. He has initiated and has been involved in numerous activities which are based on the biblical mandates having to do with divine visitations. One such activity have to with his weekly prayer gatherings.


Each Wednesday-noon the Core Team meets at various churches for focused prayer. Everyone is invited to attend these prayer meetings.

Historical ‘Reconciliation-Prayer’ Gathering At Lakewood Church
January 23, 2014 Lakewood Church
(More details forth-coming!)
John Bisagno
Dodie Osteen

Pray Houston

God is on the move in Houston. First Baptist Houston Pastor Emeritus John Bisagno received a burden of the Lord when the Holy Spirit convicted him that the sin and darkness in Houston was the result of the Church not being the Light. He began to mobilize pastors for prayer and repentance. In this process Pastor Bisagno went to Dodie Osteen, the wife of Lakewood Church founding Pastor John Osteen and repented for the way the Baptist convention treated Pastor John and Dodie and Lakewood church after the Holy Spirit fell. This amazing time of repentance has opened the door to an amazing call to prayer and repentance across the city of Houston. At one prayer meeting with Pastor John he shared his prayer that the Lord would not take him home until he saw the transformation of Houston. God is using Pastor John to call the body of Christ in Houston to take responsibility for the condition of our city. He has partnered together with Dodie Osteen and between the two of them they are able to trumpet a call to our city that transcends denominations. In another meeting with prayer leaders from around the city Pastor John repented for his limited view and understanding of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He was joined in deep prayer and repentance by prayer leaders from many denominations as we followed the command of scripture in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and in humility confessed our sin as we sought the face of God and invited Him to come and heal our land. We are now moving through the inner city going where the Lord is leading and hosting times of prayer and fasting seeking the presence and face of God not simply His hands. We are expecting God to move as He continues to awaken His church in the city. [A public 'reconciliation-prayer' gathering will be held on January 23, 2014 at lakewood Church.]

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.
