God’s given us a powerful tool that will help you strengthen and activate your faith—fasting. Fasting is a discipline. And although it’s not easy, you’ll find it to be an amazing way to gain insight into the promises and the purpose that God has for you.
During this 12-day period of extended times in prayer and fasting, let’s press into God for renewal in the new year. Let’s make 2022 a year where we see our mind, love, faith and strength all renewed by our mighty King. I look forward to hearing your stories about how God showed up for you in a life-changing way as you sought after Him for renewal!
During this 12-day fast, we’re believing God for life-transforming miracles to happen to us and through us! Let’s press into God together and prepare our hearts for Him to take our families, region, nation and world to new levels of peace. And just for joining our fast via the link below, we’d like you to enjoy a free gift—designed to help you grow stronger in your faith!

Ezra 8:23 (NIV)
The Blessing Service
Our annual, stand-alone Blessing Service was moved from Friday night, January 21; it will now be celebrated as part of our Weekend Experience. This decision was made as part of our overall effort to limit our in-person ministry to Sundays only, for the time being.
Engaging in the spiritual discipline of fasting—the abstaining from food for spiritual purposes—can produce some remarkable results. Some of these proven time-tested benefits of fasting are:
Deeper intimacy with God
Increased sensitivity to God’s voice
Power in prayer
Divine direction in fulfilling your God-given purpose
Fresh anointing to overcome challenges
Creation of an environment for miracles and breakthroughs
Breaking bonds of wickedness and destroying spiritual yokes
Miraculous occurrences of healing, deliverance and the salvation of loved ones
What Type of Fast Is It?
You have 2 different type of fasts to choose from:
The Daniel Fast is a clean, simple, partial fast with no meat or processed foods like white rice, sugar or solid fats. It is a diet of harvestable foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans
and LOTS of water.
Is a fast inspired by Daniel—one of the Bible’s great prophets—who, despite living in a culture steeped in pagan practices, chose intimacy with God. Daniel avoided meats, rich foods and wine. God honored
his obedience. He took Daniel and made him even better.
