Wanted to let you all know that HCMC, beginning September 16th, will meet at 6PM instead of 10AM. We’d love to have you stop by and allow us the privilege of worshipping with you. If your tired or thirsty or just need a hug your always welcome to stop by. Stay as long as you’d like and allow the love of the Father to fill your heart. You’ll always find someone willing to pray with or for you. Hope to see you Sundays at 6PM (beginning September 16).
A safe place to experience the Father heart of God.
Psalm 36: 7-9
7How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
9†For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.

To my brothers and sisters in Christ,
Greetings! I pray that this letter finds you well, abiding in the love of Christ Jesus our Lord and resting in His peace. I am writing this to testify of the great and steadfast love of God, the works of His hands, and the words of His mouth, that have impacted my heart, and transformed my life over the past six months.
In early March of this year I was part of a weekend conference hosted by Home Church Ministry Center in Lino Lakes, Minnesota. The focus of this conference was to encounter the love of God, our Father, and to gain a deeper understanding of our place as His sons and daughters. The speaker was James Jordan from Fatherheart Ministries located in Taupo, New Zealand. During the gatherings the Lord began to reveal to me a new perspective on the relationship between Jesus and Father. He showed me that I had mostly focused on the person of Jesus. This is not a bad thing, it is a beautiful thing to gaze on the beauty of the King. However, the purpose of Jesus coming to earth was so that we could know His Father. It was, and still is, His desire.
This planted a seed in my heart, a desire to know the Father’s heart. Consequently, this also planted another seed in my heart, the desire to attend a three month intensive bible school called Inheriting the Nations School (INS). This school, offered by Fatherheart Ministries, focuses on:
- “Enhancing and deepening each participants personal relationship with their Heavenly Father”
- ”Allowing Father’s Heart for the nations to impact and break our hearts”
- ”Laying strong biblical foundations and understanding in key areas of theology and ministry”(excerpts taken from the Inheriting the Nations School website)
I am convinced that it is not just the desire of my heart, but the desire of God’s heart, that I attend this school. I believe that it is a vital part of the over-arching season that He has had me in, a season of preparation to walk in, and walk out, what He has called me to do on the earth. What is that calling? I believe it can be simply stated like this: “To be a son of God, bearing His heart to the nations”.
As the months following the conference continue to unfold, God has continued to reveal to me who He is as my Father, who I am as His beloved son, and the burning desire in my heart to know His heart and to bear it to the nations, a confirmation of that calling. He has also had me in a season of inner healing, or what I like to call, ”chain breaking” so that I can be unhindered, and fully able to receive what Father has in store for me.
At this present time, I have been officially accepted to attend the INS and my spot has been secured. However, I do not have all of the funds required to pay the tuition for the INS, and since the school is held in New Zealand, I will need to purchase an airplane ticket. I would like to invite you to partner with me financially so that we can see the will of God fulfilled in my life, and consequently, fulfilled throughout the earth. I am still in need of $4000 for the tuition and around $1800 for the plane ticket. I greatly appreciate any amount that you can give whether it be big or small. If you do not feel that you can give or are not feeling moved by the Lord to give, then I greatly appreciate your prayers that the finances would come in and that Father would continue to prepare my heart to receive all that He has for me at the INS. Thank you so much for your prayer and consideration in this matter and I pray that you would be blessed with a touch of the Father’s Love for you today. Amen.
