Brenda has been championing prayer for many years since accepting Jesus as her Saviour in 1994. While attending special meetings at Hillsborough Baptist Church in 2005, with guest speaker Gerhardt DuToit from Canadian Revival Fellowship, she sensed a deeper call to corporate prayer. Following, while attending a meeting of The Maritime House of Prayer, and upon hearing their desire to see lighthouses of prayer throughout the Maritimes, she & her husband, David, began leading Community Days of Prayer (originally called Tides of Revival) in churches along Route 114, for several years. She has also served as co-chair with David, of Hillsborough Baptist's Prayer Committee and then chair, for a number of years before stepping into the role of Prayer Coordinator.
Currently, she is team lead of a regional prayer movement called Rising Tide, a grassroots movement towards spiritual awakening and growing in intimacy with God. Rising Tide is an interdenominational subcommittee of the Albert Association of Baptist Churches.
As part of her journey, her heart’s desire is to see the greater church, and more specifically, Hillsborough Baptist, be “A House of Prayer”: Isaiah 56:7, Matthew 21:13, Mark 11:17, Luke 19:46. As prayer coordinator, she will be working with Pastor Geoff and the dedicated prayer team towards this goal, and to see our church grow in more intimacy with Our Lord.
