Sara Maynard is the founder and Director of Redleaf Prayer Ministries. She has been leading intercession in the Vancouver area and the nation for nearly 20 years with a deep hunger for revival. After Bible school and working in a youth evangelism ministry in the US, she married her best friend, Mike and built a successful financial planning practice in downtown Vancouver. She returned to full-time ministry in 2000 as a part of the founding team, and then Director, of Canada's first House of Prayer (VHOP). In 2003 the Lord began to lead her more into national intercessory ministry and she established Redleaf Prayer (then know as Cityscape Prayer Ministries).
Sara is committed to seeing the prayer movement of Canada unite, and gain strength, maturity and authority so that together we will see God's purposes birthed for Canada and many nations. She is known as a mother in the Canadian prayer movement, raising up and walking with the next generation. She is a networker, an equipper and a visionary leader who believes in a big God. Sara and Mike attend Westwood Community Church in Coquitlam, BC, and have 3 amazing sons, two daughters-in-law and a really cute grand-baby.
