In the 1990's, the AD 2000 movement formed a network of combined church prayer groups in the Illawarra. On Saturday June 19th 1999 a prayer launch for the Harvest 2000 outreach was held. Ross Holmes (an AOG pastor) was the prayer coordinator for the Harvest 2000 prayer meetings which continued after Harvest 2000 as ecumenical prayer meetings under the name of the Illawarra Prayer Network. A few years later Jeff Stacey took over as President of the informal prayer network which was run in association with "Reach Illawarra" and David Bartlett's "Illawarra Pastors Network".
The fortnightly Clearing the Way for Jesus email prayer letter commenced on 21/9/2005 with a distribution of 77 email addresses. In 2006, Jeff Stacey stood down as President and Derek Thompson became the Coordinator. The prayer network joined Five Islands Christian Ministries to benefit from the mutual support, incorporation and charity status. The email distribution network has steadily grown to over 3,400 members.
The Clearing the Way for Jesus newsletter informs Christians of local prayer needs and combined church events. This is a free service and you can easily unsubscribe at any time. If you would like to receive our fortnightly newsletter, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
