We have been leaders and facilitators within an under-the-radar, international phenomenon in which people of faith have been moving, by the thousands, outside of their traditions and buildings to take healing and hope to their personal and professional communities.
"We're not here to build a big ministry. We're building people who will know God, be strong, and do big things with Him." ---Chris and Carol Green
The Fruitful Life Strategy is rooted in the historical accounts of the Spiritual Movement called The Way, as recorded in Acts 2: 40-44
Followers of the Way continued steadfast in the Apostle's teaching and fellowship, in Breaking of Bread, and in Prayers. They met privately in their homes and corporately on a regular basis; and they took care of widows, orphans and the poor, while experiencing miraculous signs and wonders.
Mission Directive: Isaiah 61:4: They (WE) will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore the places long devastated, and renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
This assignment includes establishing a New Testament ministry that will:
make room for the lost, outcast and forgotten
establish genuinely transformed followers of the life and mission of Christ
instill prayer, praise and worship as a lifestyle
release Godly hope and Biblical faith by teaching the principles of the Kingdom of God
restore apostolic order and the prophetic voice
provide an oasis of loving fellowship, friendship and faith
restore the meaning and value of covenant relationships
bridge the gaps between generations, gender and ethnic groups
teach and build Believers in God's Purpose for Prosperity
train and deploy Believers into marketplace ministries
Our Mission Strategy
....is to build Faith Families that are capable of doing the work of the ministry in their communities; so they can be called upon by various outreach organizations like homeless shelters, drug/alcohol recovery centers, food pantries, local schools, pregnancy resource centers, prison outreaches, unemployment services, and prayer networks to supply labor, expertise, helping hands, and resources (financial and physical).
The Mission Challenge:
What if the Church had Special Force units like the Marines or Navy SEALS?
What if God is calling YOU to enlist in one of His special force teams during these perilous times?
Would you sign up for deployments that will take you behind enemy lines, crawling in mud, trudging through swamps, and lying in sewers, just to get into position to bring deliverance to your families and friends, and usher them into the Kingdom of God?
By the way, very few people may ever know your name. There will probably never be any parades in your honor, no Christian Celebrity TV appearances, no Dove awards, no Grammy awards, no American Idol or Sunday Best titles, and no guarantee that you’ll live in a mansion, own a jet, or drive an expensive vehicle. There will probably be no fame or acclaim. There will certainly be persecution and suffering. You might even face death.
However, you are guaranteed to also have purpose, grace and favor upon your life. You will have the peace that you can face your Savior and Lord, knowing you were obedient to the heavenly vision, and not just sold out to your own dream.
Will you sign up to serve?
