Statement regarding Mike Andrea from the Trustees of 24-7 Prayer International

16th November 2021

Yesterday we were made aware of serious allegations of historical misconduct, posted online, against Mike Andrea, leader of Global Generation Church in Thanet and CEO of 24-7 Prayer International. The allegations have been made by a former member of the church and relate to events prior to 2011, before Mike’s appointment as CEO of 24-7 Prayer in 2019.

We have also been made aware of other allegations from several other former church members over recent weeks, which have become the subject of an ongoing investigation by the elders and trustees of Global Generation Church. 

We take all such allegations as matters of the gravest concern. Today, the board of 24-7 Prayer International met and unanimously agreed to suspend Mike Andrea immediately in order to conduct an investigation with the benefit of professional, independent counsel.

At the present time there have been no allegations of impropriety relating to Mike Andrea’s role as operational head of 24-7 Prayer International.  

We would urge anyone else who wishes to make any kind of complaint to come forward by contacting Elisa Alberto, one of our trustees, via the dedicated email: contact@igniteand.com Any communication will be handled discreetly and with confidentiality. 

Brian Heasley, our International Director of Prayer, will serve as interim CEO while the investigation is ongoing, with the full support of the board and executive. You can contact Brian at brian.heasley@24-7Prayer.com 

We would ask you to remember those who have been most deeply hurt in your prayers, and would also appreciate your patience as we embark upon this important investigation.

Adrian Eagleson (Chair)
On behalf of the 24-7 Prayer International board of trustees
