|God has placed it deep within our hearts to minister to the body of Christ and see it healed and whole, and to become the Glorious Church that Jesus has called us to be. Now is the time! Today is the day! It is our heart to bring restoration to broken lives and see people built up, instructed and equipped, and back on the path to walking out their destiny in God!
When God moved us here to Tulsa, Oklahoma in September 2013, He gave us a very clear directive. Go and find my Generals! What the Lord spoke to us was that there are Generals in Tulsa, and surrounding areas that have been displaced, damaged, and separated from active service to the Lord and His body. He said they are hiding in holes because of the abuse and mistreatment they have suffered at the hands of those whom they trusted with their families and themselves. He said, go find and restore them.
Many years ago, I was in a situation where I was badly hurt in a church. It took years for me to regain the ability to trust what I saw as "organized religion". What I experienced was a system that controlled and damaged all it came in touch with. What I didn't know is that this is not how God intended His people to be treated. What I did not understand at the time was that what came against me was not man, but the enemy seeking to rob the anointing and love out of me as a believer in order to make me weak and ineffective.
What I now know about that displaced and wounded group of believers is that once restored to active service, once their confidence is restored, they become an awesome weapon in the hands of God for the purpose of tearing down the kingdom of darkness, and building up the kingdom of God! What happens is what we like to refer to as "payback time". They get their lives back, they get a fresh vision for serving the living God with the power and authority that God intended them to walk in. What they do is go out into the world and do what God purposed for them in the beginning, they have become fruitful, and multipliers of the heart of God to restore what was once lost.

II Corinthians 5:20 [Amp] So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.
And so it is the cry of our hearts, and the cry of the Lord’s heart…Be Reconciled to God! We pray that our ministry will help guide you, strengthen you, and comfort you in this season of your life!
