The Prayer Room Leadership




Brad Stroup - Director of The Prayer RoomBrad Stroup

Brad and his wife Amy have three children and reside in South Arlington.  They have a heart for this generation to enter into wholehearted lifestyles with Christ as center.  As director of The Prayer Room, he oversees the various ministries and duties for the leadership and the overall running of this house of prayer.  Brad called this group of intercessors into daily prayer meetings in September 2005 the day after the Holy Spirit clearly told him to “start a daily prayer meeting tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m. and don't stop until I come back.”  Brad took that word very seriously and rallied together a small group of believers into daily prayer and worship meetings that have continued since that day.  He has a vision to see tens of thousands of believers in the DFW area meeting daily in corporate prayer meetings all over the city praying for revival and preparing for Jesus’ return.

Luke and his wife Caslin met each other through the Prayer Room and now live in Arlington. Luke came to The Prayer Room after graduating from the International House of Prayer University in Kansas City in 2015. He heads up the Finance Department at the Prayer Room, serves in the mornings as a worship leader, and is an instructor for The Prayer Room’s training programs.

Andy SanchezAndy Sanchez

Andy and his wife Vina have four daughters and live in Arlington.  They have ministered together since 2008 and want to see the Body of Christ encouraged, equipped, and empowered to do the will of God by walking in the revelation of who God is and who we are to Him. As a member of senior leadership at The Prayer Room, he trains and oversees prayer leaders and manages the different systems that give infrastructure to the overall running of the Missions Base. Andy began participating in regular prayer meetings with Brad in the spring of 2006 and shortly after felt the call from the Lord to be a modern-day priest in His house.

The Prayer Room is a para-church organization working to establish a place of 24 hour a day, 7 day a week, non-stop worship and prayer where any Christian fellowship in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area can come join with us. We desire The Prayer Room to be a unified, city-wide voice that cries out day and night before the throne of God for the coming of His Kingdom and the fulfillment of His will in DFW.
