Indeed! What an amazing congregation, pastors and leaders and worship team! Nestled in a farming community just north of Eugene, God is pouring out His spirit on Life Bible Church in Harrisburg, OR (Pastors Brad and Jennifer Neuschwander)  in powerful ways. Maryl and I were privileged to come in at the end of a week-long series of meetings with Pastor Mark Strong and Pastor Bob Isabell. Spirits were high and the expectation of God’s presence and voice was soaring. We joined them Saturday night and Sunday morning for some of the most exhilarating worship and powerful sense of God’s presence that I have experienced in a local church.


This church not only has an excellent, well-trained and sensitive worship team, they also have a great sound system set up by Steve Diamond and his team, plus a pastor that sings and prophesies fluently and a congregation that is engaged fully to the back row. They walk out in their worship all the principles that I teach in my seminars. There is a clarity of the spirit, a strong awareness of the presence of Jesus, and an overriding joy that saturates every moment of worship. Even in the middle of the worship service, Pastor Brad had an altar call for salvation and scores responded! What an environment of faith and joy. ‘many will see it and fear and they will trust in the Lord’ Ps.40:3

Anyway, you can tell we had a great time with this great church. You should plan on visiting someday when you are in the area. Harrisburg, Oregon!? You bet!

You can read their response to the ministry that weekend at: and you can hear some of the incredible worship and music from our time with them (that’s me on the cello) at:

We certainly hope to return again soon.

in Him, Dr. Tim and Maryl Smith
