Why is this position needed?

Significant breakthroughs among Unreached People Groups (UPGs) are marked by extraordinary prayer. This is true not only of those inside movements such as apostolic-missionary teams and early generations of believers, but also true of  prayer warriors from the outside who have been mobilized to pray towards movement among a specific people group or segment.  Scripture also highlights the  importance of prayer by showing many examples of people partnering with God through fervent prayer to see spiritual breakthrough and lasting spiritual change. A Prayer Coordinator is needed to mobilize extraordinary prayer for the Afghans of Metro NYC. He or she is also needed to intentionally cultivate and sustain a healthy culture of prayer among team members and ministry partners who are active in seeing these people engaged with the Gospel.
