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

WHAT IS GOD TEACHING YOU IN THIS SEASON and WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION
on 10/06/13
by Michael Barrett

Sam Soleyn serves as a spiritual father to Michael Barrett.  Sam and Michael met in the mid 1980's and have been in relationship since the early 1990's.

Sam Soleyn was born on the southern Caribbean Island of St. Vincent in 1951. From his early youth he was uncommonly interested in the things of God. At the age of 14 he made a public declaration of faith in Jesus Christ and a year later began to preach the message of the gospel in small villages throughout the island.

In 1970, Sam came to the United States and attended college to study for the ministry. He married Lucy in 1976 and they have two children Tamarind and Nicholas. Sam holds a doctorate in Jurisprudence from the University Of New Mexico School Of Law. From 1982 to 1987 he directed the Christian Legal Aid and Referral Service in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was a ministry that served the legal needs of the poor and helped to unify the Body of Christ.

In 1984, in a dramatic encounter with the Lord, Sam was baptized in the Holy Spirit. It was at that time, that God started to unfold the revelation of the Kingdom of God and his calling as an apostle to Him. He began to devote all of his time to the ministry of an apostle from January of 1988 to the present. He has brought the message of the Kingdom of God through radio, television and conferences throughout the United States and has traveled to many foreign countries to speak to the leaders and groups in the Body of Christ. Sam understands that his calling is to bring order to the Body of Christ and to demonstrate the power of Christ in support of the message of the Kingdom.

Sam has developed a website, which houses numerous teachings and articles as well as his ministry calendar.  From that website, Sam has made available invaluable resources in audio, video and text formats.  The materials contained on the site are designed to build the Body of Christ and advance the kingdom of God.  Additionally, Sam has published and made available a very timely book entitled, "My Father, My Father."  Sam is also currently working on a second book, which should be completed and available in late 2015.  You can gain access to all of these materials at: www.soleyn.com.
