Jill Weber is the founder and Abbess of a New Monastic Community, the Greater Ontario House of Prayer in Hamilton, which began in 2001. She and her team of urban missionaries resource churches and individuals across the region who wish to rediscover and experiment with the ancient practices of radical hospitality, intentional community, and extravagant prayer. They live, pray and play with the urban poor in a vulnerable but resilient neighbourhood in East End Hamilton. Jill also serves a global prayer and mission mobilization organization called 24-7 Prayer. Through her work with them she brings support and resource to Houses of Prayer/New Monastic Communities across several continents.
