Revival Broke Out Near Historic Cane Ridge, KY on Pentecost Sunday 2018

Rick Curry is leading the meetings

I was just at Cane Ridge, Kentucky to visit the site of the 1801 Cane Ridge Revival meeting where 20,000 people came for three days and the Holy Spirit fell upon them so mightily that reports of it spread across the country and fanned the Second Great Awakening into a brush-fire that swept millions into the Kingdom!

While there, I spoke with Rick Curry about his revival meetings.  This is surely a sign–along with the other multi-week revivals going on in other places right now–that God is waking His Church to get ready for the BIG WAVE of revival–a Third Great Awakening across America that will also sweep the planet and hopefully bring in a billion souls or more!

Here is Rick Curry’s article in Charisma.

There has been prevailing intercession and profound prophetic utterance released in a myriad of settings as the current generation becomes increasingly desperate for revival. One consistent cry has been for the ancient wells of revival and awakening in the land to be opened once again and for the nation to encounter the manifest glory of God in the power of a pervasive move of God. Are ancient wells opening? Are you sounds of the early stages of awakening being heard in the land?

Since having the dream most commonly referred to as the “Appeal to Heaven Dream,” we have traveled the old trails of awakening and significant revivals in the nation. We have, like a multitude of others, cried out for God to come and heal the land. We have partnered with many ministries to visit once again the old paths of America’s early revivals in the wilderness. We traveled along the El Camino Real from the Southern border near El Paso, Texas all the way through New Mexico into the most northern portions of the state.

We were given a dream about visiting all of the original eight capital cities of the nation, and we sought to fulfill the word of the Lord concerning that. We have journeyed along the old Wilderness Trail, following the path of the Pioneers through the Cumberland Pass into Kentucky and the western front of the young expanding nation. However, recently we have experienced an unusual outpouring of the Spirit in what has now become a 16-week revival in Kentucky. This revival began just a few miles from the old Cane Ridge Meeting House in Bourbon County, Kentucky in an old church that was last remodeled in the 1850s.

Stoically sitting alongside a country road in Bourbon County, Kentucky is the Mt. Carmel Christian Church. Mt. Carmel began in 1818 when one of five men denounced from the pulpit of the Old Stoner Mouth Presbyterian Church for attending the Cane Ridge revival held a camp meeting on his farm. We came to Bourbon County to celebrate the 200th anniversary with this congregation on Pentecost Sunday and to speak at a regional gathering to be held at River of Life Ministries in Paris, Kentucky. We have been in revival ever since.

During the evening service at Mt. Carmel, as worship filled the old sanctuary, we heard a remarkable sound that seemed to reverberate throughout the entire sanctuary. I glanced up to look at Jennifer, and it was obvious that she and the minister sitting next to her had also heard the sound. It sounded as if every person in the sanctuary started simultaneously stomping their feet on the old wooden floors. I felt quickened in my spirit that it was the sound of the Lord coming upon the land. It sounded like many horses thundering upon the land.

The worship that night was a single psalmist worshiping on an upright piano, leading the congregation into wonderful adoration of the King of glory. She was wholly attentive to hosting the presence of the Lord in worship and inviting us to go a journey with her. We went.

The altars were filled with people at the conclusion of the service. The people had lined all the way up the aisles of the church for prayer to the doors at the back of the sanctuary. People were crying and laughing hysterically at the same time. You could see people lying on the floor or gathering in their pews to pray with one another.

The sound of jubilant breakthrough was resonating from the hearts of the people in that service, and it was as though we all knew revival was being birthed. A revival on old Kentucky soil that had witnessed a move of God at Cane Ridge, just a few miles away, was about to erupt again with the manifest glory of God.

During revival services over the last 15 weeks, we have seen pastors and leaders repenting, weeping and laughing in an outpouring of refreshing. We have seen people saved, delivered and many returning to the Lord surrendering their yielding hearts.

We have seen many miracles and hearings that are really stunning in this stage of the revival. There have been at least two documented cases of healing of cancer along with many other miracles and dramatic healing. In addition to pastors and people coming from all over Kentucky, we have also had ministers visit the revival from numerous states including Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Oklahoma and New Jersey, to name a few. We now enter into week No. 16 with no end in sight.

Kentucky leaders are creating synergy and releasing strategy for Kentucky’s awakening. The Lord is summoning leaders to come together in humility, honor and the heart of the Father for a generational move of God all across the nation.

Are you ready to take your place?”

Bob Jones Reports on His After-Death Experience in Heaven

Word spoken by Bob Jones in 2006. Full article here.
I was in pain on the earth and blood was shooting out of my mouth like a geyser.
And all of a sudden I wasn’t in pain anymore. This Man, the Parakleet (1) stood by my side, the Holy Spirit, we started walking. And as we walked, I saw a Man who was white light. (2) All white light was around Him, but He was the whitest of all white lights. He had His hands out. As I came into that white light, there came a feeling over me like I had never known before. I asked the Man beside me, “What is that?”

The Man (Holy Spirit) said, “It is the love of God.” I said, “It’s just so wonderful, it’s so glorious.” And He said, “That’s what it is, it’s the glory of God.” I said, “How can it be both?” It’s in John 17. The love I had with the Father, the glory I had with the Father. So that was the greatest experience I have ever had. Just enveloped in His glorious love. That’s possible down here. The glory of God is coming and it is going to be in His glorious love.

I noticed another group of people on my left side and they had like a conveyor belt underneath them. And they were wrapped up in all different kinds of things. And I looked at them and I asked this Man, “Why are they wrapped up that way?” And He said, “They were wrapped up in the earth with their gods. It’s the gods they worshiped on the earth, that followed them into death. They were on their way to Hell with their gods. I saw a man wrapped up in dollar bills. I saw a man wrapped up in his sod or grass; his yard was his god. I saw a man that had no body, he was just one big head. He was an atheist, he worshiped himself; he was his own god and going to Hell with it.

Well, I worshiped the Lord and I am going to spend eternity with Him. But these others that don’t are going to spend eternity in total darkness with their god. And their gods will be their tormentors, not a hundred thousand years, but eternity.

So I looked at that line. It was so horrible, and everyone, when they came there, they recognized Him. Their eyes got big, and everyone that is going to Hell has had a witness in one way or another that there is a God. And every one of them willingly denied Him. For each 2 in the line that I was in, there was 98 in the other line.

Bob’s book on Amazon

I watched the Lord speak to people that were coming there. And He asked them only one question: “Did you learn to love?” He’s not going to ask you what you did. If you learn to love, you are going to do that which is right. Did you learn to love? (3) He would ask them that question and they would say, “Yes Lord,” and He would kiss them right on the lips and embrace them and the double doors of His heart would open and they would go right on in.

As I came close to the Lord, I was thinking, “I learned to love. I’m OK, I’m going home.” As I did, He held His hand up to me and said, “No I want you to go back.” I told Him, “It was too hard to get here. I don’t want to because I wasn’t doing any good there.” He said, “You are a liar, because you spoke My Words and My Words will always bring it to pass.” I said, “Well nobody was believing it and it was painful.” He said, “Yes, and you have a cowardly nature too. [Up there, it’s the truth.] (5) But you love. You had a heart for souls. I want you to go back. If you look at that line over there and then tell me you want to come in, I will bring you in.”

I looked at that line and looked at their faces and said I would go back for one…I’m sending you back to wake up the Church because I am going to bring a billion youth to Myself. In one of the greatest waves of all times. I’m going to honor Myself beyond anything that man can imagine. I want you to go back and touch the Church and speak to the Church of what I am going to do in these last days.” So I told Him I would come back

The Fires of Revival in 2018

The Holy Spirit Is Bubbling Up Across Mid-America!

God’s Spirit is continuing to fall on the United States of America and the fires of revival are spreading!

At the time of this article, the Greeneville Awakening is now going into its twentieth week, with no signs of stopping. In fact, on Friday night, the last night of week nineteen, when I was there, D.R. said “We are just getting started!” Over 600 people have given their lives to Christ under the tent. At least 30 states have been represented, coming from all over the country.

Up until a few weeks ago, these states were all states in the East. However, within the last few weeks, the revival fires have burned so bright that those from the West have made the trip, Utah and Washington now being represented under the tent! In addition to these states, over 300 churches have come together, churches spanning all denominations! The revival is now on the radio, broadcast all over the world, and the first day of the radio program, 27 different countries tuned in. It is estimated between 2,000-5,000 people gave their lives to Christ as a result of that one night, and it will be on the radio every night from now on!

Christ’s Fellowship in Georgia has been experiencing revival since February. It is not uncommon for more than 40 people to walk to the front and be baptized. For the past six months, physical healings, deliverance, and more than 500 baptisms have taken place during the Sunday night services. According to the pastor, “We had one woman come to pick up her sister from the service. She walked into the door, and she fell under the conviction and got baptized. It was amazing.” People have come from hundreds of miles away to experience what God is going in this congregation.

Around 100,000 people in Southern California gathered for the 29th annual SoCal Harvest from August 17-19.  Pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie spoke each night, placing special emphasis on California’s, and our nation’s, need for revival. More than 10,000 people responded to the nightly invitations to make a commitment to Christ.

A U.S. Army chaplain describes a revival that is occurring on a military base in Missouri. In one post, he writes, “Today, 380 soldiers came to salvation in Christ once and for all. Since March 11, 2018, we have seen 1,839 soldiers coming to Christ. God’s doing an unbelievable work through our military at Fort Leonard Wood, MO.

A church in Corpus, Christi, Texas has seen an incredible move of God this summer. They planned four consecutive Wednesday meetings in July, and from the beginning it was obvious God was moving. The first Wednesday, over 100 people gave their lives to Christ and then the second Wednesday, an additional 100+ people came forward. “The following Wednesday, 200 people responded—many actually running to the altar.”

One thread to each one of these revivals is a hunger for God. The revival in Texas “first started when senior Pastor Mike Fehlauer developed a deep hunger to see more of God’s presence.” The staff joined with him in prayer that an awakening would take place. The revival in Georgia was birthed out of a 21-day church fast. Shortly after this fast, the pastor noted “God sat down in our building and rocked our world.” Prayer has also been a major part of Greeneville.

One of the things I learned when I was in Greeneville is that the property where the tent is has been heavily prayed over. A lady used to walk all over the property, praying that God would send revival. Not only did God answer that prayer, but God answered it right on that very property! The service we attended began with probably a thirty-minute season of prayer. This was not a perfunctory opening prayer, but a time when people from all over the congregation came to the front and were pleading for the presence of God. Later in the service, as D.R. was still preaching, people were walking up to the front, kneeling in prayer. I could hear groans and cries being uttered (Romans 8:26), people desperate to encounter God. By the end of the message, countless people were up front, crying out to God. Each night after the services, at 11:00, the men meet for prayer. In the morning, the women meet for prayer. This praying, this fasting, this desperation is a key to seeing God move and as the body of Christ in America cultivates this desperation, God is on the move!

God is Orchestrating The Healing of the Korean Peninsula

What just happened in Singapore is a beginning.

Over 80 Christian leaders called Americans to prayer for North Korea in preparation for the historic June 12th meeting between Presidents Trump and Kim Jong Un!  Read about this prayer movement in Charisma or in the Christian Post News.

This is in addition to a 40 Day Worship event in South Korea starting on April 29th for unity between the Korea’s.
Let’s keep praying. Let’s pray for the salvation of Kim Jong Un.

Here is a prophecy that he will be saved.

Here is report from 2005 in which Shawn Boltz reports an angel visited him to tell him that that God is going to reunite the Korean Peninsula!

Incredible? Yes! Impossible? No!

Let’s pray for God to save NK President Kim Jong Un. He is the key to most of what God wants to do to heal the Korean Peninsula.  Once He knows the Lord, all heaven could break out there! 

On MARCH 30, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer:

American Needs More days like This!

During the Civil War, on MARCH 30, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer:

“Whereas, the Senate of the United States devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and of nations,

has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for national prayer and humiliation; and

Whereas, it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow

yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord;

… And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisement in this world,

may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil warwhich now desolates the landmay be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole people?

… We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity.

We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.

But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us;

and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace,too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Powerto confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

… Now, therefore, in compliance with the request and fully concurring in the view of the Senate,

I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the30TH DAY OF APRIL, 1863, as a Day of National Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer.

… And I do hereby request all the people to abstain on that day from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

… All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, thatthe united cry of the nation will be heard on high and answered with blessing no less than the pardon of our national sinsand the restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

… In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this 30th day of March, A.D. 1863, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty-seventh. Abraham Lincoln. By the President: William H. Seward, Secretary of State.”

Pastor E.W Jackson On Ballot for US Senate

A Chesapeake, VA Pastor Who Can Really Help America.

EW Jackson is one of two pastor friends of mine I highly recommend to you.  The other is Pastor Ryan McAdams whom I will write about in a different post.
Our country is falling apart morally and otherwise.  America desperately needs Christians in office to return us to the Christian principles upon which America was started.  Only another Great Awakening will save America, but “righteous exalts a nation” and good political leaders can help restore and protect America’s righteous standing before God.  Unless God blesses and protects America, we are sunk. (Ps. 127:1)
I encourage you to check Pastor E.W Jackson out. Why?
1.  His character. I have had breakfast with him a couple of times in a small pastors’ group.  EW is very genuine, passionate, smart, wise, experienced, highly educated, gody and courageous.  He is a powerful speaker and a courageous leader who is not afraid to tackle the hard issues. I cannot imagine him doing anything for self-serving purposes. American needs men like him in leadership! 
2. His platform:  Click the link here to see a summary of the issues he wants to address as a senator.
3. His competency and credentials to lead from experience and by training.  Click here to read his impressive bio.  Great-grandson of a slave, raised in poverty in foster care in the ghetto and then a Marine Corps veteran, Harvard Law grad, 2013 Republican nominee for Lt. Governor of Virginia, and pastor of The Called Church in Chesapeake, VA.
Given the huge diversity within the American Church now, I assume some Christians will not support EW, but I hope they will check him out and pray for God to give us the leaders we need to restore the righteousness of America before God so God can make America great again!  Only God can!

Invitation to Watch Livestream of Turnaround Prayer Conference

At a home in Chesapeake: Feb 22-24

Hi Prayer Warriors!

We are entering a crucial time in the history of our Nation. A time for America to continue to spiral downward or rise up in the power and righteousness of Our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ! Intercession in the Holy Spirit is the pathway to revival!

Because of this call of the Lord to intercede like never before, we are opening our home this weekend starting on Thursday evening at 7PM and ending on Saturday afternoon in order to LIVESTREAM the Conference from D.C.

We’ll be listening and praying along with the prophetic prayer warriors gathered at the Trump Hotel. It will be a time of crying out to the Lord for Breakthroughs in America, the Supreme Court, the Administration, etc. Prepare yourselves to be used mightily as we pray with one voice to Heaven and push back the enemy! Together we will see victories this year!

Below is a message from Dutch Sheets and also Conference times listings!

Dear Friends,
Convene: to come together or assemble, usually for a public
purpose; to summon to appear, as before a judicial officer
As we gather on 2/22—some in Washington, D.C., others via Livestream—we are not gathering for a typical conference. As the above definition states, we have been “summoned to appear before a judicial officer”— the Supreme Judge of the universe, the Ancient Of Days, the Most High God. He has summoned us as His ekklesia, the expression of His Kingdom government on earth, to gather before Him.

We know that Christ is the “Head” of this ekklesia, the Church. In both Hebrew (rosh) and Greek (kephale), the concept of a head refers not only to a physical head, but to “the highest in rank or authority; the one to whom others are subordinate.”

Christ is the highest ranking ruler “in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18), and has delegated that authority to His ekklesia, in order to enforce His kingdom rule on planet earth through her. In His model prayer, He told us to COMMAND His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).

For more information on prayer points to be covered at the Turnaround Conference, go to

See you this weekend. It will be history in the making! Praise God!

Thursday@ 7PM.
Friday starting@ 9AM, 2PM, & 7PM.
Saturday@ 9AM and
1 PM.

Blessings in Yeshua!

Christian Denominations in Virginia Need to Apologize to Virginia Tribes

For 20th Century Offenses

Leonard Crow Dog, a Lakota elder and highly-regarded activist, left, places his hand over Gen. Wesley Clark Jr.’s head during a forgiveness ceremony for veterans at the Four Prairie Knights Casino & Resort on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016.

 

I know some really good folks might not think so, but I respectfully disagree for several reasons:

1. I know of only two Christian apology services with Virginia Native Americans in the last 20 years: One at Williamsburg with the Spanish Ambassador and one at the 400th Anniversary of the Colony on the beach in Virginia Beach in 2007.  I was at the one on the beach that Rock Church hosted.  At the 2007 beach event, no specific offenses were repented of that I heard over the sound system. Pastor Marty O’Rourke washed Chief Ann Richardson’s feet as an act of repentance and honor.

The other one, at William and Mary, concerned the events surrounding the killing of the Spanish Jesuits by the tribe in February of 1671 and some other early events.  ( I was involved as an advisor in both apologies, by the way. This is something I have felt strongly about for many years. My book talks about that.)

No Christian leader or denomination has ever publicly apologized for what a Presbyterian Elder named Walter Plecker did. The hideous Plecker enforcement of the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 which he helped to draft effectively stripped Virginia Native Americans of their identity as Indians as they sought marriage licenses for 50 years. They could only register as white or black. Therefore, they all had to declare “Black” since they were not fully white. This law was an extension of the Virginia laws against mixed marriages  —another set of laws all Virginians should be ashamed of, too. White supremacists got them all passed. Plecker admired Hitler and wrote congratulatory letters to his staff. 

As a result of Plecker not allowing Indians to register as Indians, they cannot prove their ancestry. There are currently 566 federally recognized Indian tribes, only one of which are from Virginia–and that just got approved. The other 10 Virginia tribes have lost all the valuable federal benefits that the other 566 tribes have long enjoyed.

Walter Plecker was a physician, eugenicist and avowed white supremacist–and a devout Presbyterian Elder who helped start churches in Virginia. Most of the Virginia legislators and government officials who enforced these terrible laws would have claimed to be Christians in this Bible Belt state.  Hundreds of pastors and churches probably knew of these laws over the 50-year history of their enforcement.  Clearly, Christians have sinned against our Native American tribes in Virginia by using, encouraging or allowing such hateful laws to be passed and enforced for five decades.

I think that all the denominations that were here in Virginia during the 20th century need to take some responsibility for allowing or encouraging such laws. They never have…yet despite the Governor Mark Warner’s 2002 apology for these hideous laws, especially forced sterilization. 

The Canadian government and the Australian governments have both publically apologized for serious 20th-century offenses against their native tribes. Why not us?  Why not the Christain denominational leaders whose members perpetrated these awful offenses againts our tribes?

2.  I would bet that hardly any Christians in Hampton Roads knows of any public apologies to our tribes from Christian leaders.  Only a small number of people are aware of them. I think it would honor our tribes to have those previous apologies made very public.  I think it is somewhat hollow to honor VA tribes on April 17th in Richmond with a statue to our tribes without such public apologies from the state and from Christian denominations for the offenses we have committed against our tribes for 400 years. As you may recall, some Christian denominations and the State of Virginia did apologize for the slavery issue.

Many of my friends love our tribes and want to see them honored as they should be. The Jamestown Colony would probably not have survived with the food assistance of the Native Americans–some provided by the intercession of Pocahontas. Those tribes helped found America. For me, it is not only those motives but the principles of 2 Sam 21 that makes me sure that such public apologies need to be very public and detailed.

May God heal our state and nation even more through such acts of repentance! May our Virginia Tribes be able to bless our state and nation even more despite all we have done to injure them in the 20th century and before.

Virginia and our nation need the blessing of our Virginia tribes!  That’s the lesson of 2 Samuel 21.

Great Online Training to Heal the Sick and Hear the Voice of God

50% discount ends soon for January semester.

I have had tons of training in how to do the three main works of Jesus ( preach, heal, deliver from demons)—mainly from Dr. Randy Clark’s ministry ( Randy will be here in 2018 to train people in healing ministries).  But I am trying to draw closer to God and love people the way Jesus did with signs and wonders so I am excited to study and recommend Jason Chin to you as a resource to mature your ability to love people like Jesus did with words and deeds of Kingdom power.

It’s biblical and so effective to show people what a good God we know through signs and wonders!  Young people love this!!  Look at this video of teens getting rocked by the love and power of Jesus at Disneyland after being getting healed by 30-second prayers!  Why would we NOT want to learn how to cooperate with the God and do the works of Jesus like this?? Here is a set of healings that happened at our church in 2012. Jesus was glorified and people were healed of pain they had for years!  More and more churches in Hampton Roads are reporting healings through prayer in Jesus Name!  Go God!!

I highly recommend Jason Chin. He is on Youtube with lots of free training and has a great book & website out called Love Says Go. He also has this online school that looks really good—now with 50% discount for a week ( 50% DISCOUNT ENDS very soon). If you miss that, check out the book and Youtube videos.  🙂

Worship & Marriage Ministry by Terry & Barbi Franklin: Oct 11-12

Free Worship Concert, Pastor's Meeting and Marriage Seminar Preview

A Treasure Hampton Roads Needs to Discover!

We are honored to have Terry & Barbi Frankin of Nashville, TN. visit Hampton Roads for the third time in four months.  The Franklins lead worshippers into heavenly places and have a beautiful marriage ministry–both of which have blessed thousands across the world for 25 years.  I met them at the home of our friends, Pastor Peter & Margaret McLewin, over dinner.  The Franklin’s had just lead another worship session at Peter’s church, Ingleside Church in Norfolk that weekend.

After dinner, Teri & Barbi led us in worship that was really heavenly. Barbi also sings prophetic songs over people as she plays the violin.  So refreshing! They also shared about how they have built a beautiful marriage after decades of godly prayer together. Click here for a video Terri wrote and sings that really speaks to me as a husband.

I was deeply touched by all of that and I sensed that these two have the kind of seasoned, wise and holy hearts that could help many in Hampton Roads, especially our Christian leaders. We pastors and ministry workers need this kind of ministry. They know lots of ministers, even many famous ones. They knew the agonies and the ecstasies of ministry first hand–especially how to have a strong marriage in ministry.

The McLewins and I heartily recommend the Franklin’s to the Body of Christ in Hampton Roads.  The videos online do not do them justice.

This Oct 11-12, on Wednesday evening and twice on Thursday, they will be ministering to us.  They will lead a service of just worship on Wednesday Oct. 11 at Ingleside Church at  925 Ingleside Rd, Norfolk, VA 23502 starting at 7 PM.  Free and open to the public!

Pastors can meet them at 10:30 on Thursday morning to learn more about their marriage ministry.  Click here to see many details about that. This meeting will be at the IHOP restaurant in Kempsville at 1316 Fordham Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23464.  That night at 7 PM, Terri & Barbi will lead a shorter time of ministry and give us a preview of what their marriage seminars look like. This meeting place will be announced at the morning meeting. Contact me at this email if you wish to be notified of that location.

Here is more detailed information about the Franklin’s. You will be surprised at the breadth and depth of their ministry!

Terry & Barbi Franklin are singers, songwriters, and speakers that have ministered full- time for over 32 years as a duo, focusing on their theme: “Inspiring Love in the Home & Revival in the Church.” Through Family Worship Events and Marriage Retreats nation-wide, as well as in 39 countries worldwide, they are touching countless marriages and families with the hope and love of Jesus.

Terry & Barbi possess a burning desire to see God bring Revival and Awakening to the church… starting inside our homes… and spreading to the whole Family of God and ultimately to unbelievers. Their sons, Tyler and Travis, ministered with them until their later college years, and now they are both married. As skilled singers, along with Terry’s abilities at the keyboard and Barbi’s talent on violin, they lead listeners into a worship experience that touches many hearts through their harmonies and heart-felt message.

Giving all the glory to God for His blessings and favor, they have founded a mission’s organization called Heart for the World, Inc, (now called Love Sings) which focuses on evangelism as well as bringing encouragement to marriages and families world-wide. Through marriage retreats, evangelistic festivals, and worship gatherings around the globe, the Franklins have seen many thousands of souls saved, churches planted, and lives changed by their message of hope, redemption, and restoration.

Through the years, they have worked with many well-known Christian leaders and artists such as Billy Graham, Jim Cymbala and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Focus on the Family, Coach Bill McCartney and Promise Keepers, Adrian Rogers, Jack Hayford, Steve & Annie Chapman, Bill & Gloria Gaither, David Jeremiah, Kay Arthur, Gary Smalley, Judge Roy Moore, Josh McDowell, Don Wildmon and The American Family Association, and many others. ( Empahsis mine)

As songwriters, they have had noteworthy success. Artists across a wide range, from The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir to Carrie Underwood have recorded their songs. They have won numerous Dove Awards and award nominations but more important to them are the changed lives and healed marriages and families they have seen through the years as God has used them.

Lot’s of Youtube videos of their music ministry here.   I looked at a few. Honestly–these videos do not communicate the power of their worship ministry now. They are at a new level of ministry now from what I have seen.

Come and see:

Wednesday, Oct 11 at 7 PM at Ingleside Church in Norfolk

at 925 Ingleside Rd, Norfolk, VA 23502

Thursday at 10:30 AM at the Kempsville IHOP at 1316 Fordham Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23464

Thursday at 7 PM at a location to be announced. Email here to get an update on the location.

 

Blessings to all,
