Announcements -

Our gathering on Sunday, May 26th was a very important time. We have devoted the past two gatherings to following up on the Zoom Series message that Sam Soleyn gave on March 24, 2024 on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. If you have not listened to Sam's message, please contact us and request a link to the message and we will email it to you. Our May 26th gathering message was a continuation of teaching, but with an emphasis on tongues. We looked closely into the scriptures and discussed the twin precedents of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and tongues as recorded in the Book of Acts. The audio recording of the message entitled, The Mystery of Tongues is posted in the upper right corner of the website or click here to listen to the message.
 

Also, we will host our next Household Gathering on Sunday, June 23rd. The start time for this gathering will be 10AM CST. In addition to hosting the gathering in person at the Barrett home, we will simultaneously host the gathering on Zoom. We hope you can plan to be with us then.

Until we see or speak to you next, please know that you are always in our hearts and that we love you very much. :)

New Message -

You will see in the center of this home page a new message entitled, "A Prophetic Call to the Prophetic." This message came out of a dream that I had on March 16, 2024. The messsage in the dream was (is) about the call of God to recognize and deploy the prophetic in this season. In this message, I share about this dream and the body of understanding that came out of the dream. I urge you to read this message and also listen to it's companion audio recording which is listed in the upper right side of this home page. The call in this dream is certainly not limited to the prophetic, and as you will read, there is an encouragement to all of us to engage our respective work deliberately in these times.

I also encourage you to periodically check this site for new messages. As the Lord is leading us along with the bread of revelation, it is my intention to continue to speak and write the things that I am hearing from the Lord. Part of the "re-engage" word that I heard last year involves writing and speaking messages that are current and relevant. "Profitable" (upper right on this page) and "Patmos" are both messages that are well suited for this time. And there are others soon to come. So, check back as you can.

Blessings of grace and peace to you,

Michael

Messages by Sam Soleyn

Sam Soleyn visits us periodically and normally during his visit at some point we host a corporate gathering.  The messages posted here are a mix of messages given by Sam in our gatherings and also elsewhere.  Sam always brings a timely and applicable word.  We believe in Sam and in the message that he brings.  We also believe that you will be blessed as you listen.
