In a bold move to cut costs and gain efficiency a local church is pulling the plug on their in-house prayer ministry and exchanging it for an outsourced call-center solution in India. 

The church hopes that this effort will help enable them to respond to the many prayer needs of their church members and local community in a more efficient manner, while also helping them step out in faith to embrace the technologies of today.  The overall goal of this effort is to not only accept new ways of doing ministry in today's fast-paced world, but also to incorporate these tools in the church as a means to give congregants the freedom to use their time in whatever ways they desire.  

Senior Pastor, Myles Austin made the following statement regarding his church's decision to move forward with this new venture. 

"I certainly hope that our church's decision to forgo some of the old fashioned and outdated ways of praying for people in exchange for a much more relevant and efficient method will not only cut the need for the time-consuming prayer chain we used to have, but will also free up people in our congregation to do the things they really want to do with their time, instead.  I see this as a win-win situation for everyone."

  1. Now even our churches are out-sourcing. The thing about this that makes me mad is him saying the prayer chains are "time consuming". Honestly if someone cannot take a moment out of their day to pray for other people they are selfish.
