Each year as fall schedules begin to pick up, we set aside time as pastors to refocus and refresh as we head into another exciting season of ministry.

As a District, our mission is to build quality Christian leaders and healthy faith communities to fulfill the Great Commission, and we know that prayer is at the heart of it all. As Oswald Chambers commentated in his devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, “Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer IS the greater work.”

We believe the Prayer and Fasting Retreat is a springboard for renewed vision for every minister in Minnesota. Join us at Lake Geneva Christian Center for three days of prayer, fellowship, and fasting.

This is your chance to get away from the routines of life and ministry and spend time in prayer and reflection. We encourage you to come with your pastoral team to dream about all God has in store for you, your community, and our world in the coming year!


Ann Marie, her husband Stan, and their two children, Elle and Stanley, started serving with the Assemblies of God World Missions in 2001. Stan gave his life to the field and is buried along the Euphrates River.

By invitation of the village elders, Ann has purchased homes in the village where Stan is buried. With the Lords help, she is currently working to establish a house of prayer on the Euphrates.

Ann continues both the work their family began in the villages and actively advocates for missions across Central Eurasia. By the grace of God, she is seeing many people called to work in field and many coming to Christ!

Rick DuBose was elected assistant general superintendent of the Assemblies of God at the 58th General Council in August 2019. He is a member of the Executive Leadership Team.

He served as superintendent of the North Texas District from 2007-17 and assistant district superintendent from 2005-07. DuBose pastored Sachse Assembly of God in North Dallas from 1987-2005. Prior to that, he served a pastorate in Hallsville, Texas, and began his ministry as a youth minister in Mesquite, Texas.
