Prayer Forge is a missional training and resource ministry dedicated to serving the Church by equipping leaders to stand in the counsel of the Lord, to hear His Word and to go out into the harvest fields of our generation and make Him known — to see hearts turn to Jesus in every sphere of society from our own communities unto the ends of the earth.

We do this through our prayer room, online content, training schools and outreach projects.

  • 01 PRAY | Central to our ministry, we are committed to leading prayer sets within and around our community where we set aside time to worship Jesus, meditate on His Word and contend for revival. We partner with other ministries to mobilize prayer meetings, worship nights, night watches, and other events for people to seek the Lord.
  • 02 FORGE | We create content and put on training schools in order to better equip laborers for the work of ministry in the field they are called to serve.
  • 03 SEND | We launch and collaborate on projects where students can work together to create, innovate, serve and grow as leaders while they bring people to Christ.

We want to see everyday believers equipped and activated to use their God-given giftings, skills and passions to edify the Church, engage this generation with the power of the gospel and to prepare the way for the return of the Lord.

This ministry is led by Nick Russo, a worship leader, pastor and bible teacher based out of Venture Church in Burnet, TX.


As citizens of God’s kingdom, we are called to love, worship, and obey our Lord, to love and serve His Body, the Church, and to present the whole gospel for the whole person throughout the whole world. We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative word, revealing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; that people are created in God’s image; that He created us to have eternal life through Jesus Christ; that although all people have sinned and come short of God’s glory, God has made salvation possible through the death on the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ; that repentance, faith, love and obedience are fitting responses to God’s initiative of grace towards us; that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth; and that the Holy Spirit’s power is demonstrated in and through us for the accomplishment of Christ’s last commandment, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15).


Our heart is to serve the Body of Christ as we collaborate with many like-hearted churches and ministries to mobilize prayer, produce resources and launch outreach projects for the sake of the gospel and the glory of God in our generation.
