The Network

Since 1996 SIGN has served teams of strategic intercessors and both ministry and marketplace leaders around the world: from Asia, Australasia to the across the African continent, Israel, the Middle East to Europe, Eastern Europe and into Russia and the CIS States, as well as across North and Central America. Wherever they are, the network of SIGN members are good citizens whose efforts build community and are a blessing to those around them.

SIGN members come from every walk of life, but have a disproportionate representation of leaders, because intercessors functionally serve a leadership role.  More than just people of faith who pray seriously, strategic intercessors reach for the big picture in understanding the times and knowing what to do. They touch the hem of His garment in their quest for and grasp of God’s heart on matters. They take responsibility for their spheres of influence, their communities and spiritually stand in the gap, making a difference and bringing change through the time they spend in the presence of the Lord.

SIGN members range from housewives and laborers to a large array of pastors, Messianic rabbis, mission practitioners, entrepreneurs, business owners, executives and  heads of ministries and intercessory groups. Because of our focus on what God is doing in the marketplace, the SIGN network reflects owners of family-owned businesses and corporate executives and professionals (legal, medical, psychotherapy, financial, academia) from almost every nation we serve.  These modern-day Josephs in our network are complemented by modern-day Daniels:  elected governmental officials, advisers to heads of state and leaders in governmental agencies in the nations we serve.

The SIGN network gives special focus to and is represented from both the persecuted and oppressed segments of the Body. In each case, whether serving as local community-builders for the Lord or modern-day Josephs and Daniels whose influence is shaping the course of nations, the Strategic Intercession Global Network works along side those whose thrust enhances both the bottom-up and top-down dimensions of God’s economy in order to facilitate God’s purpose for the times we have entered.

The web-site of our parent ministry, Global Initiatives (www.strategic-initiatives.org) also has available a series of 24 videos on Jewish business secrets that unveil the rich heritage we have spiritually and strategically from the Jewish roots to the faith.
