Here are some helpful links for Guests about to attend a weekend.
We have a master Calendar that includes all Community upcoming Great Banquet & Awakening Weekends. This calendar is important so that all Communities can help support other Communities with sharing Banners, sending Agape Letters and cover new Communities with prayer. Plus this is a great place to find dates for people planning to sponsor someone on a weekend. Please help us keep the Calendar up to date with your Community weekends by submitting your upcoming dates.
Each Community has their own home landing page within this website that contains their contact info. This information is very important to other Communities so that they can send Agape Letters, Banners and participate in other 72 Hour Prayer Vigils. This contact info is also important to people who have moved and are looking to plug into a new local Community. Check your home page and submit new contact info.
Lampstand Ministries now offers online 72 Hour Prayer Vigils right on this website. You may request to have an online prayer vigil created for your Community, which can also include meal server sign-ups. We also include all online prayer vigils that are located on other sites. Send us your link so that we can include all upcoming Great Banquet & Awakening Weekends on the Prayer Vigil list.
Every so often Communities (especially new Communities) need assistance with their 72 Hour Prayer Vigil or they are running short on Banners or Agape Letters. If your Community has used all means of getting local assistance but is still in need you may post an announcement within the International Great Banquet & Awakening Group. Once something has been posted here we ask that all Community Leaders pass the information along to their local Community and rally together to offer support.
We offer Leadership Teachings that address how to continue your spiritual growth after the Great Banquet and how to maintain and keep your Great Banquet Community alive and on track in different ways. Check out the recorded messages from the National Conference to help keep the fire burning in your Community.
Banners are a beautiful expression of Agape Love during the weekend for the guests. Community Members and Reunion Groups create Banners for each weekend. These Banners are then passed along to other Communities as an amazing expression of Agape Love shared between Communities. We are collecting pictures of Banners to give people inspiration as they create new ones for their Community and to send them on. Please take pictures of all your Banners and send them in to inspire others to make beautiful expressions of God's Love.
We are building a fun archival section of Weekend Group Photos for all the Communities. So, we need your help! After each set of weekends please send in your photos so we can add them to the collection.
Before each Awakening Weekend have all your Team Members watch the Awakening Orientation presented by the Author and Founder Jack Pitzer.
We have all your Great Banquet & Awakening Supplies. Community Leaders can place their orders easily with our order form and be invoiced or order with credit card.
Community Leaders please join our communication group so that you can join in the conversation. Here you will be able to ask other leaders for help or suggestions. This is also a great way for us all to collaborate and serve each other better.
Each Community has a private member section that includes information useful for their Community Members. Our Goal is to keep this up to date with specific information that will help each Community have better communication. Your Member area is set up so that you can manage everything from where you are. You can add announcements and attache files such as registration forms or guest lists. To learn more about using this area please contact Jessica for additional help.
Agape Gifts are so important to the guests and it is so much fun to see how they are inspired by the Agape Love that others show them. We want to love them really well so send us your amazing ideas that your Community has come up with. Take pictures and send in any agape ideas that you have seen or done to inspire others.
If you are looking for an efficient way to communicate with your Community, we offer the ability to send your Local Community an E-Newsletter. Just submit your Newsletter to us and we will handle your email database and send it out to your Community. We also send out International E-News for all Community Members periodically so don't forget to make sure you have sent us your most recent Community Member email addresses so everyone stays in the loop about New Communities starting up.
Theme songs are such an important part of the weekend since we sing them before every talk. These songs really become part of the personality of the weekend and inspire us in our 4th days. We are building a fun list of all the songs used throughout the years all across the nation. After each weekend please send us your Theme Songs and ask those from the past to send in the ones they remember.
Before each Great Banquet Weekend have all your Team Members watch the Great Banquet Orientation presented by the Author and Founder Jack Pitzer.
The Manuals have the information you need to have a successful weekend, and we've gathered wisdom from those who have gone before you to give you some tips and guidelines. Check out our tips here.
