A Come Alongside Prayer Ministry Launches


DickLaFountain.jpgA new prayer ministry, Parakletos, was launched February 2012 by longtime missionary and pastor, Richard LaFountain.


Based on the Greek word parakletos, which means “one called alongside to help,” the mission is to provide personal mentorship to churches, and especially pastors, in developing a passion for prayer and God’s presence.


LaFountain has pastored multiple churches toward becoming healthy, life-giving churches with a prayer foundation. These churches have been revitalized by seeing healings, souls saved, and people passionate about fostering the presence of the Lord in their midst. LaFountain has also developed a number of powerful resources on personal prayer and spending time with God, used by thousands to deepen their prayer lives.

Mentoring Possibilities

Parakletos offers a number of levels of mentorship. First, LaFountain is available to speak for a prayer weekend at any church, but with the idea that he will 1-Parakletos-Suit-640x425-final.jpgmaintain an ongoing relationship with the church to help the prayer leader and pastor continue developing prayer. On a deeper level, LaFountain will personally mentor 20 pastors a year in the areas of personal disciplines, personal prayer life, sermon planning and development, and vision development and casting in their churches.


While directed by LaFountain, Parakletos, is under the spiritual covering of Harvest Prayer Ministries and works alongside the Church Prayer Leaders Network (CPLN). “We are excited to have such a man of prayer as Dick LaFountain join our ministry team,” says CPLN president Jonathan Graf. “Dick is highly recognized within his own denomination as a ‘pastor’s pastor’ who develops leaders and congregations with a passion for prayer. I strongly recommend Dick, especially to young pastors who want to do ministry under the power of the Holy Spirit. Look into being mentored by Dick.”
