Doug Small’s life is a portrait of passion for Jesus that results from intimacy with God. Many people talk about prayer: Doug Small prays. Drawing upon the lessons God has taught him through devout Bible study and personal experience, this man of God now effectively teaches others about the power of prayer. Whether in the informal bonds of two or three praying together or in a retreat that draws together scores from across a city, his zeal for spending time in God’s presence is contagious. I appreciate the influence Doug’s teaching on our denomination and on me personally, and I recommend his ministry wholeheartedly.

P. Douglas Small is a catalyst for transforming revival through teaching the principles of prayer that draws the presence of God. My life and ministry has been greatly impacted by his teaching entitled Transforming Your Church to a House of Prayer. This teaching has helped to begin to change the prayer culture of our church I highly recommend that you avail yourself of the rich teaching material, prayer coaching and schools of prayer offered by this great man of God.
