Our mission is to create a “praying with” attitude of prayer within our community and to raise funds for people in need.
 
Jesus said, “One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
 
Okay, so yes, we understand, Jesus is referring to a passage in Deuteronomy 8:3, and we understand that there is a big difference between chicken wings and bread. However, we are talking about bringing food, fun and prayer to public events.
 
So, what is A Wing and A Prayer? A Wing and A Prayer is a ministry that started in October of 2016 in an effort to be more involved out in the community. We sell grilled chicken wings at festivals throughout the year. Yes, we raise money, but the funds we raise go towards people in need. Sometimes it’s a family while other times it’s an organization that helps other people.
 
That’s the “Wing” part, now for the “Prayer.” During our W&P event, we realize that Jesus would often pray with people, rather than pray for them. That’s why we have prayer workers who are ready, willing, and able to pray with anyone who requests immediate personal, private prayer.
 
We also understand that not everyone is comfortable having someone pray with them. That’s why we also offer prayer request boxes.
