The Community of the Cross: A Place of Encounter with Jesus Christ for Prayer Equipping and Sending.

The Community of the Cross is a ministry of PRMI and is staffed by the members of the Dunamis Fellowship. It is located on 24 acres of land in the mountains of Western North Carolina and it provides the spiritual support base for our involvement in the worldwide advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Name “Community of the Cross”

In 1975, when I first received the call from Jesus Christ to build this place of prayer, equipping and sending, I just called it “Jesus Abbey II in North Carolina”. I had no other name and also was very dependent on the model of Jesus Abbey to understand what it was that Jesus wanted. After going through the wilderness, however, I died to that name and actually to the vision. The Holy Spirit spoke a new name to Laura in 1979; it was “The Community of the Cross”. This is was what we were told to pray into reality. “A place of Encounter with Jesus Christ” was added in the year 2000 when I was back at Jesus Abbey and the Lord clearly said that it was to be a “Place of Encounter with Jesus Christ for Prayer, Equipping, and Sending in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

The photo above shows the PRMI Ministry Team in Black Mountain, praying for God’s provision for building facilities and guidance in developing the program for the Community of the Cross.


We are most excited about the way God is enabling the fulfillment of the vision of the Community of the Cross. We have already experienced miracles of Jesus’ presence and reality. He is the One building the Community and calling us to cooperate with Him in fulfilling the vision of this being a place for prayer, equipping and sending.

A Journey of the Soul

By: Dr. Brad Long

Those who feel their prayer lives have dried up, who feel abandoned by God, or whose ministries seem fruitless will find comfort and encouragement. "This is an extreme book for those in times of extremity in their spiritual life," Long writes. The good news is that the wilderness experience is often the point where God entrusts believers with new power and gifts, setting the stage for spiritual growth and the advancement of his kingdom.
