It focuses both on how to be innovative, as well as looking at trends and innovations, as told by the innovators crafting the future today. Innovation Boot Camp is more than an event. It is an unforgettable experience, in which the audience learns their own creative power. More importantly, they learn how to use that power.

2018 ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT & LEADERSHIP SUMMIT

Father, we lift before you the 2018 Economic Empowerment & Leadership Summit. We pray for your anointing, revelation knowledge, wealth generation, innovation, and creativity to dominate to be upon every aspect of this Summit. We decree that your entrepreneurs and business leaders are distinguished, exercising dominion in the earth and setting new standards of excellence in the marketplace.

We agree and declare that:

• All speakers are in attendance as scheduled, their travel is free from accidents or delays, and their hotel accommodations are safe and excellent.

• Every attendee is transformed and empowered to change and influence nations.

• The auditorium and overflow rooms are filled.

• 500 churches are streaming online

• All staff and volunteers serve diligently under the anointing of God in excellence.

• Jobs and contracts are manifested to those attending the Career Fair and Business Expo.

• You are enlarging the borders of JBS, and supplying every resource in abundance to fulfill the mission.

• A prophetic shift brings clarity, alignment, and divine positioning for all attending.

We take authority over every satanic force that tries to hinder the success of this Summit. We bind distractions, confusion, disunity, chaos, and strife. We cancel every wicked plan and scheme the enemy tries to bring against this Summit, our speakers, or our team. We declare freedom from every work of witchcraft or bewitchment, and that the works of the enemy are destroyed, in Jesus’ name. We plead the blood of Jesus and release the peace of God, the joy of the Lord, and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit upon this meeting.

Father, we thank you for doing exceedingly above all that we ask according to the power that works in us. We expect the birth of new businesses, the expansion of existing businesses, and for signs, wonders and miracles to confirm the Word ministered. We declare the 2018 Economic Empowerment & Leadership Summit a complete success, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
