I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and loved them even as you have loved me.

The Vision of John 17:23 Ministries, Massachusetts, to see the body of Christ working together effectively at the local level so that every city and town in Massachusetts will have a vibrant, cooperative Christian witness that seeks to transform the spiritual, emotional, and physical climate of our communities. Our vision is not activity-driven, but redemptive, understanding and accepting where we are today, but working together to remove the obstacles to biblical unity day-by-day, as we continually experience and spread the love of Christ.

We hope you will join us in “The 365 Challenge” as together we pray and serve our way through every city and town in Massachusetts in one year. We want to inspire you and challenge you to build a relationship with your Brothers and Sisters in Christ throughout Massachusetts.


Why Unity?
Understanding The Vision

Participating In The Mission

There are 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts, and with Boston broken down into 15 sections, we have a total of 365, enabling us to pray through Massachusetts in one year. Each month we will provide a list of cities to pray through for that month. This list will be selected partly by request, or where there is a special event taking place, and partly randomized. We will also make sure we have a balanced list each month, so that every county is represented.

Just think… if we can all pray for even 5 minutes each day for one city, how much of God’s heart will be poured into every city, and into Massachusetts.
