The Earth Will Be Filled

Our life has been sort of crazy recently, lots of things going on, (can’t believe its August) crazy travel schedule, back to school and little sleep! BUT our hearts are full of so much JOY! We are so pumped to be alive and living in the BEST DAYS we’ve ever known.

A few weeks ago, I got asked to lead a trip to Iraq. Through some back and forth emails, sketchy wifi face time calls and lots of prayer we locked the trip in! Most of the trip will be covered financially, but we are raising some funds to cover some logistics of flying with instruments and supplies across the world. I sent up a simple go fund me page to a link if you want to support the trip that way, or you can give through our non-profit for tax deductible giving.

Here is the go fund me link or to give by online through the WSPF or by text see the photo below or click here. Make sure you use the designation ‘missions’ for the trip.2. Engagement Slide.png

We are so pumped for this next season of ministry! We would love to talk about the Iraq and what we’ll be doing over there! Shoot us a text, email or call and lets get coffee!

 

 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14

50 Days

Starting May 18 we are launching into a 50 day fast leading up to The Sound 2017. Each day we will be fasting, praying and worshiping to encounter God’s heart for this generation.

I invite you to join in the fast with us! Together can we touch the heart of God for a release of anointing and power of Holy Spirit to be poured out over San Francisco. We are still in need of a few financial partners for this trip in order to purchase our airline tickets for our crew! The Lord is so faithful.

My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty.” – Malachi 1:11

2 months from today!

About two months ago, I received a phone call and an invitation to San Fransisco, California to lead worship at The Sound 2017. After hearing the vision and heart behind it, all I could say was ‘YES’. I didn’t hesitate for a minute or question about the money it would take to fly a band out to SF for a few days to lead and make history in the Kingdom of God.

A few days ago I purchased tickets to the kick off event (and end of a 50 day fasting starting May 18th) at Norse Theater. It was totally a step of faith for us, because we haven’t purchased tickets yet, or lined up housing or the rental van . When we checked the mail, those tickets showed up, my wife looked at me and said ‘that’s two months from today’. I got a little freaked out and a little bit excited. We still don’t have all the resources yet, but we’ve given God our yes.

We are coming up to the 50 year anniversary to the Summer of Love; a social phenomenon in the summer of 1967, where 100,000 people gathered in San Fransisco, many were burnt out on government, consumerism and the Vietnam War. As the thousands gathered, they brought their art, music, drugs, and ‘anything goes’ world view into the streets of San Fransisco. It was an event of the burnt out and the searching, the lost and broken, the creatives and seekers.

This was the perfect opportunity for the the Love of Jesus to invade the hearts of the lost and broken and the Jesus People movement was birthed! Many were saved and had a revelation of the beauty of Jesus. The Jesus people reshaped culture, especially in the church. Many brought their drums, guitars, piano and songs into worship services, this was the birth of modern worship music. This movement has shaped the last 50 years. What God has done, He will do again. Culturally, politically, socially, I feel that we’re set up for a new Jesus People movement. Now is the time to release the sons of thunder in San Fransisco and to Release the Sound.

This summer we will gather in Norse Theater (July 6th) for a time of worship, prayer and intercession for San Fransisco.  On July 7th we will gather prophets and preachers, musicians, artist, and creatives for a music / art  festival in Jerry Garcia Stadium and on July 8th we are releasing worship and the sound of heaven throughout San Fransisco with worship across four stages in the city! We are taking the love of Jesus into the middle of the drug addicts, the lost and broken and the burnt out. We are partnering with heaven to release the sound of the throne room and the song of Jesus over a generation. What God did in the past He will do again! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!

We are so excited to partner with the Lord in fulfilling the great commission and bringing the hope of the gospel into the darkest and hardest parts of the earth. We’ve given the Lord our YES. We’ve seen his beauty, and there is only one response! He is so worthy!

Would you consider becoming a partner in this trip with us? We can’t do it alone, but together we can reshape culture for the next 50 years and raise up the next generation of Jesus People.

For more information about The Sound, please visit THE SOUND 2017. For partnership opportunities please visit the WINSTON SALEM PRAYER FURNACE or shoot us an email. (To designate resources to this trip, please use the giving code ‘Missions’.)

We are so thankful and honored to partner with the Lord and the desires of His heart and for those who are partnering in the the global harvest. Jesus is worth it all! The harvest is at hand! Send forth the laborers into the field! Release the sons of thunder! Release the sound!

Be Still My Soul, and take a nap if you need to. #freshrev

(Recently, I quit using twitter. Sort of. I mostly just go on there and will post a series of thoughts or things I am learning from the Lord. I felt like today was worth coping over to a blog post.)

People often tell us – you’re too busy. you need rest. How can you keep up this pace and not burn out? The only answer is they are correct.

But there is a difference between busy and fruitful. We can be busy & produce nothing or we can abide and be fruitful. (john 15)

King David said ‘you lead me to green pastures & peaceful streams’ & ‘you prepare a table in the presence of enemies, my cups runs over’

Even Jesus found rest in the midst of a storm, and drank the cup of suffering from the Father and it restored Sonship.

If King David & Jesus can both find rest in the middle of chaos, joy in the midst of suffering, a feast before enemies, then we can to!

If we’re going to strive, strive for rest – in and from the Father. Everything else will make sense and you won’t burn out.

We burn out when we get outside the communion of the Lord. Rest doesn’t mean we stop doing things- it means we discover the rest only from the Father

So, go and abide and be fruitful! Abide in Christ, find rest for your soul and if you need to stop and take a nap!!!  #freshrev

 

Third trip to DC.

We’re going back to D.C. today. In a lot of ways, these trips are a sacrifice of praise. We take off work, drive our own vehicles, drive 5 hours, lead a bunch of worship, sleep, and drive 5 hours back. I know that it could be worse, but logistically it’s a little bit of a stretch. But, it’s such a joy to see the beauty of Jesus and his name lifted up over America.

Going to D.C. is a little bit like going home for me. I didn’t grow up there, but since 2013, we’ve been going and spent about 2 weeks a year leading worship and sowing seeds of intercession in America. So much has been birthed in my heart in that city. I feel like the true version of myself really comes alive when we are there. We’ve seen so much kingdom culture established in our hearts in such a short amount of time through our trips there!

Please pray for us this weekend; while we travel, for health (we’ve been running hard for about a month and starting to feel it), for finances and provision to be released. Most importantly, please pray for America. I love this nation and the people that lead it and those of us who call it home. I want an encounter with the King of Glory like we’ve never known!

If you want to give financially to help cover gas or food, please visit the Winston Salem Prayer Furnace and choose your giving option. Please use the ‘missions’ giving designation.

My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the LORD Almighty. – Malachi 1:11

We are constantly updating our travel and ministry schedule, but we have a few ongoing trips and some big events that we are going to be a part of in 2017.

Through worship and prayer we are supernaturally accelerating the great commission, when we see His glory and we are compelled to share it with the world.
