Signs, Miracles & Wonders
God has always been identified through signs, miracles and wonders throughout the Old and New Testament. These experiences are perceived to be miraculous and normative today, in the modern Christian Church. We will illuminate the passages of scripture that highlight signs, miracles and wonders throughout the Bible and what our expectations should be today. “God bears witness with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will” (Hebrews 2:4).

The phrase, God is Good, is more than a positive thought, theological concept, or biblical statement. What you do with these three words defines your reality and determines your destiny.

Culture of Love, Honor & Empowerment
this powerful training, we teach about a significant paradigm shift in church life, government, and relationships that has created and sustained the revival culture. Through many relevant and true-life stories, the church is revealed as a place of freedom, respect, empowerment, and healthy discipline (not punishment). This may challenge the status quo of church leadership structure and presents a refreshing view of the five-fold ministry. If those with power learn how to empower those around them, then surely it will come to pass that, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. You can apply-today-the truths revealed in this practical yet supernaturally charged set of principles to relationships in your family, workplace, community, ministry, church-wherever you deal with others.
Women in Leadership & Ministry
In the Garden, woman was taken out of man to stand by his side and co-reign with him. But Satan's schemes have robbed women of their rightful identity, disempowering and defacing them. The world aches for God's original design and partnership to be brought into alignment once more through the cross of Jesus Christ. This training will give insight into: God's true plan and purpose for women, Jesus' radical teachings and care for women, men's important role in restoring women, the true meaning of difficult Bible passages about women and examples of women in leadership as God intended. God designed women to lead right alongside men. Jesus set women free to be beautiful and powerful. It's time for us, as daughters and sons of the King, to rule and reign together in glory once again.
Destiny & Purpose
Christians are often told that they were born with a purpose that reaches beyond their human strivings, but most are not sure how to break past the daily struggles holding them back, much less how to fully step into their callings. In this training there are lessons that will help people discover who they really are, overcome destructive behaviors, and become equipped for their kingdom purposes. Confronting the challenges that limit Christians; such as living shackled by past pain, fear, and unforgiveness. This training offers practical solutions to complex problems that undermine their destinies and derail their purposes. With personal stories and biblical teaching, this training combines practical wisdom and profound revelation to unlock the latent potential present in each person.
