The Marketplace began in the summer of 2001. We exist  as a group of Intercessors who have committed to being available to God for the salvation of the lost and the immediate needs of others. We began contacting Political Leaders, Judges, Attorneys and business men and women in St. Augustine, Florida. Whether they were Christians was not the issue, rather, if they were interested in having someone pray for them in an ongoing manner.  The response was overwhelming!  Not a single person said "no", in fact, they were moved that someone was willing to cover them in prayer.  As the months went on, we decided to provide a monthly luncheon where professionals could come together for fellowship, networking, and listen to a speaker share how Jesus had impacted their life in their particular business.
