WWOB celebrates 2018 and looks forward to 2019

Ministry | Monday, January 21st, 2019

2018  was such an amazing and fulfilling year! We started out in the Philippines and India but have done extensive ministry in the US since then!

We started with many local churches: NW Gospel Church, Vancouver, WA; Destiny Christian Fellowship, Happy Valley, OR; Imago Dei, Portland, OR; Scappoose Foursquare, Scappoose, OR; Epikos Church, Bend, OR; as well as a powerful local conference, Worship Northwest in Salem, OR.

Then we were honored to venture out onto the east coast to Athens, GA w Pastor Morris Sapp at Crossroads Community Church. We had a powerful time of teaching and impartation with their team and the whole congregation! Got them singing and flowing in new and beautiful ways! Then on to Coweta, GA w our good friends, Pastor Rahul Patrick and Sipra Singh! In Georgia we were able to forge some strong ties in worship and teaching that will be continued over the years!

The next month I was delighted to go to Massachusetts for my first time and minister in Rehoboth, MA w Pastor Bob Bernier! What a delight to find a thriving congregation there, open to God’s presence, hearing His voice, and seeing Him move! It was wonderful to watch their response to the teaching as well as the presence of Jesus in our midst! We hope to return soon and continue building up the worship community there!

Since then we have continued to minister locally in many churches (the summer is usually a lot slower in ministry so this was a unique year for us):

Living Waters Fellowship, Tillamook, OR; New and Living Way Church, Longview, WA; Mt. Park Church, Lake Oswego, OR; Covenant Christian Community, The Dalles, OR; True Life Fellowship, Beaverton, OR; Evergreen Christian Center, Hillsboro, OR; ending the summer with a powerful conference called the Heart of the Psalmist in Longview, WA with our great friend, Mike Herron and many other friends! Each session began with strong and sweet worship, interlaced with Psalms beautifully set to music by master songwriter, Mike Herron! His teachings on the Psalms are unmatched for prophetic insights and challenges! We learned so much about the prayerbook of the Bible! and then to worship through those insights was so powerful! I was honored to lead worship as well as teach a couple of practical workshops on ‘Words Matter’ and ‘The Prophetic Song’. The musicians were some of the best in the NW, with Traci Andrusko violin; Maryl Smith flute; Scott Bettis bass; Todd White synth; Nathan Salo drums; Chris harp; me on cello; and Rebecca Chadd as our secret weapon vocalist! As a special bonus, Pastor Todd Beal led a worship set that was freeing, declaring God’s power and love over the region and culminating in sweet spontaneity! All in all it was a beautiful time in God’s presence, listening to His voice in song and declaring His love to this generation! I will never read the Psalms the same way again! Thanks Mike! :)

We had an amazing trip up to Helena Montana at Mountain Family Fellowship in September. Though we had 3 powerful days of ministry, worship and teaching at the church, certainly the highlight was to be able to lead a 2 hour worship set at the state capitol building in ‘David’s Tent’. We were honored to pray and prophesy over the sheriff of Helena and then watched as he joined in the worship over the city and the state! God is truly at work around our great nation!

In November, we return to the beautiful people in Kamchatka, Russia for a conference and teaching at their Discipleship School.

We have been so blessed to know and minister and worship with so many wonderful and amazing people around this area and the world! Thank you for your prayers and support and encouragement! We continue by the grace of God, His calling on our lives, and the many friends who pray and love on us so much! Blessings in the days to come!

In November, I returned to the beautiful people in Kamchatka, Russia for a conference and teaching at their Bible School. This is my 4th time in this stunning part of Russia! Under the shadow of magnificent volcanoes, we worshiped and had teaching and preaching day and night. It was so stirring to finally see the completed sanctuary that I had only seen in the beginning stages of building about 10 years ago! Over 400 people from all over the Kamchatka peninsula and islands came together for a powerful weekend of unity, laughter, dancing and insightful teaching that engaged every generation! Then I was honored to teach at their Bible School for 4 days – with a special treat of many indigenous students attending. Their reception to Spirit-filled worship teaching was encouraging. I taught on worship leading, vision, developing a worship team and creativity in worship. We ended the week with them singing their own songs to the Lord much to their delight! We have been able to have a deep impact in these wonderful churches throughout Kamchatka.

To end out the year, we flew to Ketchikan Alaska for a worship seminar for 5 churches hosted by Clover Pass Community Church (Missionary Alliance) with our friends Pastor Steve and Malana Ganz. It was thrilling to see their eager reception to all the teaching and watch them being stretched in spirit-filled worship. So many lives impacted there.

We ministered in many churches throughout December, sometimes just instrumentally but also privileged to take whole services where we were given the opportunity to lead worship, special music and preach on the Christmas theme. I call it ‘The Thrill of Hope’ I love Christmas because it gives us an opportunity to focus in on Jesus and His Hope that has come. I especially love singing the carols and telling the stories as well as singing them prophetically over the church. Pretty powerful time!

Now, in 2019, I am heading to Moldova for a national Worship Conference in Chisinau w 20 churches attending! Then we return to India in February and the International School of Worship. Plans are being made for many more nations including: Japan, Scotland, Finland, Guatemala, Romania and more.

We have been so blessed to know and minister and worship with so many wonderful and amazing people around this area and the world! Thank you for your prayers and support and encouragement! Your investment in worship around the world is paying off! We continue by the grace of God, His calling on our lives, and the many friends who pray and love on us so much! Blessings in the days to come!
