A boiler room was once used to contain “steam-generating equipment.” The most common places to find them were either in a compartment of a ship or a basement of a house or building. It was the place where the energy was generated. It was the source for the activity.
To have a boiler room mentality means that we want to engrain a “Father-first culture.” A congregational culture possessing a boiler room mentality views prayer as THE work of the ministry. It also means growing a people who actively call upon the name of the one true God. A people who have a heart that yearns for God to move on behalf of His glory and the good of His Creation. A boiler room mentality is one that prioritizes prayer above planning, supplication above strategizing, and faithfulness above flair.
