How You Can Support XSI Anytime, Anywhere

The organizers of the Xenos Summer Institute are hoping you’ll consider being a part of one of its greatest volunteer pools—a role you can fulfill from your home or office. It’s looking for folks to be part of its prayer team.

Prayer is the most valuable role I see when it comes to hosting XSI. This is God's event, used for His purposes,” says XSI Director Kim Van Keuls. “Praying for this conference, the speakers, the guests, the staff, and for God's timely Word to be spoken is the fuel that drives the engine.”

Each week team members get an email with items to pray for, as well items to thank God for. Team leader Catherine Gilbert says as time goes by, the team starts to regularly see items it previously prayed for become answered prayers.

Catherine says her role in the team grew out her helping to get XSI prayer requests out more regularly. “The more I helped with that, the more concerned I was about how the XSI staff were doing in the midst of all the work it takes to make XSI happen.”

The prayer team’s work extends from that need to beyond—guests, speakers, and all the behind-the-scenes work. “Prayer makes all the logistics happen so Xenos members and guests benefit from an organized conference,” Catherine says. “XSI would not run as smoothly as it does today if it weren't for the lots of prayers from the prayer team.”

You can join the team through this link. You must be a Xenos Home Group member to join. Catherine says your efforts will not only help the conference, but will also benefit you personally. “You’ll see what God accomplishes through your commitment to pray for XSI, and through that, build your desire to pray for even bigger things in your life.

This year's Summer Institute runs from July 10-12, and the theme is Christ over All. You can register online now and volunteer recruitment starts in April. Visit for more information.
