Before I came to the summit I wasn't sure about my heart for Hollywood and if it was really God speaking to me about the industry or if it was just myself. But being there kindled this fire in my heart again for Hollywood, it confirmed everything God has been speaking to me. I felt so encouraged and full of fresh new hope!
I learned a lot about how the industry works and felt very encouraged to hear testimonies and insights from the speakers. Getting to know the other chapter directors was really incredible as well, I learned a lot just hearing their heart for God and the industry.
One word I would use to describe the Summit is "inspiring." I appreciated hearing first-hand for people who are working in Hollywood. It was good to hear their stories of success in serving God and the areas of struggle so I can be praying more effectively. I learned a lot about Hollywood and the people serving there.
The love and care of each detail in the planning was obvious. Each of us was meant to feel very special. I was amazed at the loyalty of the volunteers. This meeting will make a significant contribution to many lives within the HPN organization.
What a great time in the Lord and meeting so many great new people! One of the best weeks of my life. So thankful to have gotten to pray, serve, and enjoy that time with such Godly, creative people. I will always treasure this experience. May the Lord continue to bless the Hollywood Prayer Network all the more!
The May 2016 HPN Local Chapter Directors Summit was a HUGE SUCCESS! Thanks to all 60 attendees and all of HPN’s planning team and volunteers, God moved in miraculous ways last month. We now anticipate great things ahead because of what happened last week in Hollywood!
HPN will be gathering the local chapter directors for an incredible 3-day summit in Los Angeles on May 5-7th, 2016! We started our chapters to mobilize prayer all over the states and the world for the entertainment industry. Our desire is to have our chapter directors spend 3 days with us in Hollywood in order to get to know one another, to get a clearer vision of all that God is doing in Hollywood and to go back more prepared to pray for the world’s most influential mission field!
For all of our HPN Local Chapter Directors, we have put together a schedule for our SUMMIT that any of you can take advantage of at any point during the week-end, depending on your schedule. We will be flexible so that we can have as many of you as possible joining us for this special event.
We want you to know that though we can’t pay for your airfare to Hollywood, HPN will be covering the cost of everything you need once you get to LA. We will pay for your food, housing and local transportation. There is an extra charge for couples sharing rooms. Once you make your flight reservations, we will make sure you get from the airport to your housing and back. So, PLEASE pray for the Lord to get you here and then we’ll take care of the rest!

I also want to recommend this article to read through in preparation for FASTING that Bill Bright (Founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, now called CRU) wrote years ago. It’s very helpful for Christians to read before FASTING…

The 36th Annual Bakersfield Prayer Breakfast was a success. Our very own Karen Covell was the keynote speaker at the event. The purpose of this annual event is to bring citizens together in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ to offer gratitude and praise to God and pray for our community, government, and leaders. Here are some wonderful photos!
This years blanket drive was a great success! A team of HPN volunteers donated over 50+ blankets to young children and families on Skid Row, in the heart of downtown L.A. Thank you to everyone who donated blankets. You made an eternal difference to our young homeless. Many thanks to the Peggy Beatrice Foundation for inviting us to partner with you!
HPN wants our community to be a part of a CHILD’S BLANKET GIVE-AWAY this Thanksgiving, 2015!
Join the entertainment community in warming the lives of homeless children in LA. Donate a new or nearly new cozy, kids blanket. We will be collecting the blankets to give away this Thanksgiving Day in TWO locations:
If you would like to donate a blanket, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will coordinate you getting the blankets to us or to have you deliver them yourself. If you would also want to donate monetarily, please fill out the payment form below! And tell your friends.

10 Days is an annual opportunity for the Body of Christ in your area to step away from normal routines of daily life and enter into an extended time of experiencing God together through worship, prayer, fasting, and fellowship. It’s a way for all the believers in your city to unite with Jesus at the center. It’s rooted in the 10 Days between the biblical Feasts of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah, and the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, celebrating these Jewish Holidays. For more info on the national 10 Days of Prayer, click here!
The vision of “10 Days of Prayer – Hollywood” is to unite the body of Christ in Hollywood, for 10 days, to lift up the city of Los Angeles, the entertainment industry and the Jewish community in prayer. We want churches to come together and gather as one in the Spirit! If your church or ministry would like to host a night of prayer, please contact Karen at email@example.com.

"We had an incredible celebration yesterday bringing in Rosh Hashanah with Jonathan, Sharon, and our Radiance International family: worshipping, praying, repenting, interceding, speaking and hearing from the Lord. Most of our Hope in the Hills family were in the house from 12-4 p.m., and a few of us were able to hand with Radiance all the way to midnight for the 12-hour burn/fasting/prayer. The last couple of hours turned into a full-fledged, packed-out praise party as we sang and danced before the Lord. Hallelujah! God met us on the Hill yesterday.
Also, the unity that we experienced coming together was extraordinary. We're particularly close sine our worship leader and a couple of our intercessors have all been launched from Radiance. so we're beautifully connect. We look forward to future times when we can worship and serve together for the glory and advancement of God's kingdom and love."
- Naima Lett, Hope in the Hills
"We had a great morning opening the ten days of prayer for Hollywood for the media/entertainment mountain as well as for Los Angeles. We cried out to God for deliverance and saving power for this next 10 days! We continue to hold on with everyone as we join in prayer! I feel the exponential power of "if one can take a thousand to flight, two can take ten thousand" that kind of force is released on our prayers as we pray and released as well to the city and people God loves! Happy New Year 5776 Shana Tova...the year God will hammer His world on the "vav"(6). Year of Shimetah too."
- Linda Cruz, Forerunners for Christ Church LA
"I was at Expression 58 and it was a powerful night of prayer, worship, communion and connection. We know God was moving there."
- karen Covell, Expression 58
"I believe the 10 days were significant in getting God's people to pray and worship. The Holy Spirit increased our desire for Jesus, and to see the ministry of Jesus manifested. Prayer and worship is like the Air Force that always makes it easier for the ground troops. Our troops happen to be actors, directors, writers, producers, and other behind the camera crew. We need more times of consecration like this. Being relevant will not be enough. We must go after the depths of Jesus to touch the depths of humanity."
- Ajay Samuel
"I spoke on Rosh Hashanah, the Day of Atonement and the importance of keeping our relationships right with each other. Then we prayed for about 45 minutes for LA, the entertainment industry, the peace of Israel our nation, our leaders, and the state of California. It was a great night!"
- Mona Talovic
