For the time has come . . .

 In every war there are strategic opportunities that advance the day of victory.  Such an opportunity is upon us in America at this time.  We are reminded that suffering is a part of life.  Our culture is going through a season of suffering, but for Christians this should be no surprise.  It is an opportunity to give an answer for the hope that lies within us.  But . . . is the church, as a whole, a community of people of hope?  I would suggest the answer is no.

God is concerned about the condition of his church.  As a matter of fact I am persuaded that we are living in the time that is spoken about in 1Peter 4:17 where we read, 

"For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin
with God’s household (the church).
And if judgment begins with us,
what terrible fate awaits those who have never obeyed God’s Good News?"

One year ago ReFocused Ministry was founded with the intent to help struggling pastors and churches.  In the past year we have incorporated, received certification, researched and began to work with pastors and churches.  Most churches are not in a position to pay for our ministry, even though they are in definite need of help.  Over the past year I have been involved in "tent making" employment to supplement our income while we positioned the ministry to assist churches. 

I am now focusing on recruiting a team to join me in this effort to leverage the opportunity that is upon us.  I am convinced that the greatest opportunity for the advancement of the gospel in America is the transformation of the existing church.  I realize there are many fronts in the spiritual warfare being waged for the souls of men and women, but God has called me to this front.

I believe that there is an army of people God is calling to join me on this front.  I am recruiting partners who are burdened about the condition of the existing church in America and long to see it rise up and be the light of hope and reconciliation God has designed it to be.  

I want you to pray about whether God would have you serve on this front with me.  Here is what is involved in being part of this elite team.  I am looking for people:

1.  who have a God-given passion for the transformation of the existing church.
2.  who are committed to pray for our ministry and for existing churches.
3.  who will partner with financial support to enable us to take this ministry to the church.
4.  who will help us in reaching pastors and churches by making referrals.

This ministry isn't for everyone, but it may be for you.  Contact me at: and/or go to: to learn more about this opportunity.   All donations and gifts are tax deductible.  

2013 will be a year of awakening for many churches and a year of harvest for many communities.  Will you be a part of making this happen?  Send this to friends that you think would be a good part of this elite team and who would love to see a ministry to existing churches.  Let's do this!
