Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry

We are learning to love God.

We are learning to love others.

God is now taking us on a journey to unlock the inheritance that we have as royalty and children of Him.  We are now learning the  level of power that is available to us through what Jesus did on the cross, out of love.

Cierra and I are going all in.

God has opened the door for us to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California this coming September.  We are SUPER stoked!!!  This school plays host to an international crowd of individuals seeking the Kingdom of God in love and power.  It is a ministry school with an option of attending up to three years with the core of the curriculum being accomplished in the first two. We are committed to the first year for sure and will see if God calls us to a second one.

We have talked about wanting to attend something like BSSM (Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry) on and off since we have been married.  It hasn't been until this last year that God has burdened our hearts with wanting to move in this direction.  It has only been through personal supernatural encounters of God's relentless love that we find ourselves hungering for more, with a desire to lead others into that same place.

This last two and a half years of marriage have been phenomenal and we are sad to move away from such close and dearly loved friends, here in the Portland area.  Thankfully God has given us a heart for this area and we know we are called back here after a short ministry school experience.

Cierra and I would be honored if you would pray for us through this upcoming season.  We have seen the power of prayer and if we were to ask for one thing from the ones we love, it would be for whatever prayers God lays on your heart for us.  We will try and give more specifics as things progress but sometimes words are not enough to express what the Spirit wants to do...so we trust that He will lead.

Second to prayer would be financial support.  If you feel like God has placed on your heart a desire to help in a financial sense then we will provide details to do that also.  Guilt is never a good reason to give and we expect nothing wether from family or friends but a sincerity and excitement to give what they can from both heart and from pocket.

Cierra and I will be moving at the end of August and are super excited to be rooming with 2 other young married couples our age in a townhouse.  One couple is from Michigan and one from Holland...who knows the crazy stories that will come out of this one!  We will be  five minutes from Bethel Church were the school is located and within walking distance to a mall and an assortment of shops.

We are truly thankful for all of our friends and family and would love to include you in what God is doing in our lives.  We feel all your love and support and we couldn't do any of this without you!  We will post more details shortly.  Feel free to email us or catch us in some way to share your thoughts or questions!

  4. WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR YOOOOOUU!!!!! You better have a place for us to stay when we visit!!! :) :)

  5. In Matthew 24 the disciples ask Jesus what the sign will be of his coming and the end of the age. His answer is quite long as he begins to warn them to watch out, to keep watch, to be ready for all that must happen before His glorious return. He then begins to liken the Kingdom of Heaven to the Ten Virgins and the Talents in chapter 25. It is the parable of the talents that I would like to refer. He has entrusted you with much(a relative term but in His realm it is just the right portion for each of you) because He finds you favorable in his sight. You will be responsible for the talents that he has entrusted you with and I want you to know that I am confident that with the amount that He has given you it will indeed be invested wisely and be given a return of greater amounts than you could possibly know this side of Heaven. And the Master will say to each of you, "Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; Iwill put you in charge of many things. Come and share your Master's happiness!"
    I know that you desire to be in God's perfect will, that you seek His face and long to have His heart to heal and restore His children to a place that only He can bring them to. I know you desire to be used for his glory and for the building of His kingdom. And I know that God is faithful and He will supply you with all that you need to accomplish His purposes for His Kingdom. "So do not fear for I am with you,do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you;I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isa. 41:10
    That verse is for the days that are in front of you. Cling to His promise and His truth. Remain steadfast... Read His word and obey His commands and you will prosper in all that you do. I love you both. mom
