Gideon Stanley  and his wife Sarah are founders of Gideon’s Army, a city-wide prayer ministry in the Houston metro area.  In 2001 during a season of prayer, God birthed a burden to pray for and evangelize young people.   God has used Gideon’s Army Ministries to bring salvation, healing and deliverance to hundreds of youth through over 150 youth and prayer events over the span of almost two decades. iPrayonCampus events & programs train and empower students to bring prayer back to school campuses through student led initiatives, because “if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19).

After several years of ministering as a couple in voluntary roles, Gideon and Sara were ordained under the ministry of Pastor Doug Stringer, Turning Point Ministries, Intl. and founded a prayer center, Grace Apostolic Church in 2011.  As a pastor in the Houston region, Gideon often led city-wide prayer initiatives such as the National Day of Prayer, and served in The Response prayer events.
