Teaching the how-to's

Dennis and Jen have developed a simple, systematic, proven approach to give believers the how-to tools for healing, freedom, and deliverance, and then empower them to teach it to others. It was birthed directly out of revelation from God. The purpose of these how-to's is to bring individual healing to church members, and, out of this, healthy families and a healthy church can emerge. E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Transformed lives

From the initial encounter with Christ and the subsequent process of relationship that follows, Pastor Dennis and Dr. Jen have documented a step-by-step explanation that combines God-Encounter with process. It is not a method, but a descriptive approach that demystifies how to live in the Spirit. The end result is transformed lives. 

 

Biblical unity

Dennis and Dr. Jen have a heart for true biblical unity, and believe that forgiveness, sanctification, and a spiritual walk are necessary to bring oneness in the body of Christ. Several years ago, they experienced true one accord in their time of prayer and received revelation of the glory of God and Christ manifested in the midst of unity. The prayer of Jesus in John 17 calls for the church to become one, so that the world will believe. The Lord has given five-fold ministers as gifts to the church, charged with specific responsibilities, including bringing believers into health, unity, and maturity, or full stature (Ephesians 4:13). 

Pastor Dennis has been in active ministry since 1976 as a preacher, visionary, and church planter, ordained as an  apostle by Bishop Bill Hamon, Christian  International. Jennifer hold a ThD in theology and EdS, MS, and BS degrees in psychology. Dennis and Dr. Jen are the authors of Practicing God's Presence 24/7 and Deep Relief Now: Simple Keys for Quickly Healing Your Longstanding Emotional Pain.

FIVE FOLD MINISTERS & MINISTRIES

Dennis and Dr. Jen believe that the five fold ministry gifts given by Christ to the church are still valid today. Ephesians 4 specifies the five fold ministry gifts. These are gifted leaders who are spiritual experts given to the church by Christ Himself. They operate individually or in teamwork to perform their purposes. They are wise master builders, counselors, consultants, equippers and encouragers sent by God to facilitate the proper working of the church. When they function in fullness and perfection, they represent Jesus' leadership ministry to the church. These five ministry offices are given to balance each other as well as bring balance in the body of Christ.

Five Fold Ministries

The five fold ministries are specified in Ephesians 4:10-12. 

(Ephesians 4:10-12 AMP) [Christ] Who also has ascended high above all the heavens, that He [His presence] might fill all things (the whole universe, from the lowest to the highest). And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.

Purpose of Five Fold Ministers

The purpose for which these five ascension-gift ministries are given is seen clearly in Ephesians 4:13.

(Ephesians 4:13) [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

 

Five fold ministers were given by Christ for:

Equipping the saints

The five fold ministry is appointed for perfecting and equipping the saints so that they do the work of building up the church.

(Ephesians 4:12 AMP) His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church)...

Unity:

The saints are to be equipped to fulfill the prayer of Jesus that they come into unity, or one accord, like in the Upper Room. Unity releases the glory of God in the "commanded blessing" of Psalm 133.

(Ephesians 4:13a AMP) [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith...

Knowledge of Jesus (intimacy):

This kind of "knowledge" means intimacy that fulfills the Great Commandment to love God with the whole heart, the relationship of the Bride and her Bridegroom King.

(Ephesians 4:13b AMP) [That it might develop] until we all attain...the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God...

Maturity (full stature):

The body of Christ must be brought to Christ's own standard of love, holiness, glory and power. When the church arrives at that standard, the Lord will be able to present a glorious church to Himself, a Bride without spot or wrinkle, but holy and without blemish (Ephesians 5:25-27). 

(Ephesians 5:25-27 AMP) ...Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless].

(Ephesians 4:13c AMP) ... that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection)...

Fullness of Christ:

The ultimate goal is believers who will allow Christ to live fully through them to accomplish His purposes on earth.

(Ephesians 4:13d AMP) ...the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
