Prayer Week at Mount Olive College

MOUNT OLIVE- Route 7 Ministries, the student led campus ministry at University of Mount Olive, will host Prayer Week March 21- 25.  Services will be held nightly from 7-9 PM in Rodgers Chapel on the University of Mount Olive campus, and will feature scripture and prayer topics led by student ministry groups as well as music by local community worship bands.

“We want to provide something as real as possible, allowing the Holy Spirit to move across campus,” says Cameron Leonard, University of Mount Olive student and Route 7 member.

Monday night’s service will be led by the University of Mount Olive Praise Ensemble. Tuesday night will be led by Young Believers Ministry, with worship being led by University of Mount Olive students. Wednesday night will include scripture and prayer led by Reality Check, with music from the local band Awaken. Thursday night will include worship led by Still Small Silence, the student led praise band at University of Mount Olive. Friday night will close the week with scripture, prayer, and worship led by Ignited Devotioners Connect and Kevin Gardner and Friends. Special presentations will include live art, dance, and the Mime and Dance Ministry of Project Reclaim.

“It is so wonderful to see all of the campus ministry groups working together out of concern for their communities,” says Carla Williamson, Campus Chaplain.

“Our students want to help make a difference in our world.  They are here to receive an education which will prepare them to become productive citizens who can help make our world a better place. The students also realize that they can help make a difference through prayer.  The fact that the students are so motivated and have planned a five night prayer service reflects how concerned our students are about their community.”

Prayer Week is open to the public. For more information, contact Williamson at 919-658-2502 or, or Cameron Leonard at
