Jessie Still, Founder

Jessie began the Furnace at MSU in 2006, with a simple vision to stand with Jesus, the Great
intercessor (Hebrews 7:25), and join Him in the place of prayer.  The vision has begun to infect many
other staff, students and campus ministry workers, but remains the same --
to fuel a campus
awakening through persistent, unified prayer

Jessie was very involved in campus ministry as student at Eastern Michigan University, where he
received his BA in Music (and a minor in Sociology).  His investment in ministry, and particularly the
work of prayer and evangelism at EMU marked his life.  He has served in full-time ministry in several
areas in the last ten years: as a worship leader, youth pastor, young adult leader,
associate/administrative pastor and visiting speaker.  

Since the Fall of 2010, his attention has been given to full-time missions to the Michigan State
University campus, primarily in building the prayer movement.  He longs to see the people of God
connected in prayer so that the laborers will be sent in the power of God and the great harvest be
reaped at MSU.  He is believing for a great awakening to happen that will shake the campus and touch
the entire state of Michigan.  

Jessie enjoys working along side other campus ministries to build the wall of prayer that touches the
whole campus and empowers every ministry to glorify Jesus.  He is available to speak to
campus/church groups, and enjoys encouraging and equipping others.  Please contact him if you'd
