Jesus said to love God and love others. PRAYERIE is an organization and administration of God’s love, to support the movement of God in our communities of faith and prepare the way of Jesus Christ in the Greater Erie Area! We do so with purpose, unity and perseverance.

Our Core Values
To boost faith in God and advance His kingdom.
To mobilize strategic intercession.
To see ambassadors of Jesus Christ in positions of influence on every cultural mountain in the Erie community.
PRAYERIE is a move of God that sprang up out of a well of unity. This new stream started flowing with a collaboration of churches and business leaders who gathered together around the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Rock the Lakes festival. Since then God has expanded prayer in Erie.
WHO IS ECBLA?
ERIE CHRISTIAN BUSINESS
The ECBLA was formed in 2015 when we realized that there wasn’t an official Christian group of business leaders in our community. Our focus was and is to pray for our community, build life giving relationships among us, and connect business leaders and community innovators together for the good of His Kingdom.
Our mission statement is to gather on a monthly basis to pray for our community and to unite diverse evangelical churches and leaders. We believe that through unity and prayer, we can help strengthen our community.

Grace Regional Church Collaborative
Next up – September 25: Building Bridges with Other Faiths and Cultures
Join us on the 4th Monday evening of each month from 6:30pm – 8:00pm for a moderated panel discussion and Q&A. Ministry panel nights at GLI are designed to meet the Church where they are and provide an open door from our panelists for transparency, to help and encourage church leaders. We understand that the Church is dealing with isolation, stress, division and much more. We call attention to community, soul care, and spiritual disciplines within the Erie region by presenting specific topics which aim to encourage, build, and restore.
