“No man is greater
than his prayer life.”
And Way Maker
Kathleen Dillard, an “ice breaker and way maker,” has 35 years of experience serving Christ as intercessor, prophetic voice, writer and teacher. She travels the world to speak to churches and ministries, set up prayer initiatives, strategize with church planters and give spiritual counsel to business and secular leaders, bringing a Kingdom perspective for the sake of the Gospel of Christ.
President of Take It to the King Ministries, a nonprofit Christian organization, Kathleen forges into regions of the world resistant to the gospel. She equips and networks God’s message takers on site, empowering them to minister to the nations.
From her home base in Colorado, Kathleen travels 70% of the year, spending a good part of that in S.E. Asia. She maintains an office in the region, from which her ministry focus has flourished for the past two decades. She fulfills her spiritual calling under Christ’s direction among the nations-over 20 to date. Most recently her work has concentrated on mobilizing prayer for the 426 unreached people groups nearest to the Himalayas.
Before she and her husband established Take It to the King Ministries, Kathleen and Wayne (now deceased) participated together in founding Last Days Ministries, a Christian organization started by Keith and Melody Green in 1978. While Wayne served in leadership from 1978 to 1991, Kathleen became a prophetic voice and intercessor. Although her emphasis in the ministry came to be intercessory prayer, Kathleen also taught in the Intensive Christian Training schools, where she also served as a spiritual counselor with staff and students.
Prayercentral, the I.T. Mission
Prayercentral was pioneered by Kathleen’s late husband Wayne Dillard who aimed to create a prayer space for believers to encounter God.
The goal is to equip, inspire and empower grass root believers for exploits in His kingdom. Kathleen and her team continue this work today.

What Others Are Saying
Letter of Endorsement from Melody Green, President of Last Days Ministries:
“God moved like a tsunami during Kathleen’s time here at Christ’s Chapel. Her message on prayer laid a foundation for us as we move forward into the harvest.” Pastor Terry Crigger, Erlanger, KY, Christ’s Chapel.
“Kathleen was a guest speaker at Jubilee Worship Center, the first week of September. She first shared at our women’s Bible study on Thursday morning and then again at the Sunday morning service. Having her testify to the goodness of God on the mission field inspired us all of His power to transform lives. Then both of her messages to us brought home the fact that God wants to use each one of us where we are and under His anointing. She ministered in her prophetic gifts to the congregation, and many to this day are re-visiting the powerful words given. She has endeared herself to our church, and we hope that she will visit again to minister when she’s in the area.” Pastor Carolyn Lee, Greensboro, North Carolina, Jubliee Worship Center.
“Kathleen visited our church, and we haven’t been the same since. Her teaching and direct words not only convicted and confronted us, but inspired our staff and congregation to unite in prayer and action. It’s inspiring to meet a woman that not only speaks radical faith and obedience, but lives it as well. Her stories were amazing and they literally pull you into the truth and power of the Gospel. She never asked for anything but prayer, and actually gave monetarily and lovingly to our staff and congregation. It’s not often that you get to meet someone that you want to be more like that inspires you and challenges you.” Pastor Craig Moore, Erlanger, Kentucky, Christ’s Chapel.
“I am a pastor at Encinitas Beach Chapel in Encinitas, CA. We had the honor of recently hosting Kathleen at our Signs of the Spirit mid-week service. She encouraged everyone in attendance with accurate prophetic words and a loving challenge to be completely surrendered to Christ. She even prophesied over my wife and I that we were like ‘honey & mustard’ because we are completely different and yet compliment each other in life and ministry so well. She absolutely nailed it! That is us to a tee. That night she stayed ministering in compassion to all selflessly and gave tirelessly of herself. Absolutely everyone that wanted prayer – received it! She anointing she carries is very significant for/in the kingdom. We recommend that you host her too!” Pastor Jim Heidrick, Encinitas Beach Chapel, Encinitas, CA.

I am a runner, a disciple of Jesus Christ, who hurtles forward through life at a fast pace. I run because the harvest among unreached people groups of the world is accelerating. I set my pace to run alongside the Lord of the harvest.
I am an art connoisseur. When I meet new people, I’m eager to uncover their spiritual design. I want to know what God has breathed into them, what colors they add to the brilliant tapestry of His Kingdom.
I am most passionate about three things: my friendship with God, my two daughters, and my calling, which is to guide people into authentic encounters with the Living God.
I am an unashamed, laughter-loving, follower of Jesus, and an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs test.
My hobbies include traveling the world via planes, trains, automobiles and an occasional yak. I pray. I listen. I read. I speak. I write. I teach. I call others forth into the strategies of the King.
My favorite luxury is being in, upon or anywhere near the oceans. My nickname is Ka-Pow (code name for “spiritual dynamite”).
I’ve been called a prayer warrior, a fire starter, an adventurer, an apostle, a teacher, a visionary, a spiritual encourager and a guided missile!
