"ON THE ROAD AGAIN..."

 

Greetings!

 

Can you hear us singing "On, the road again..."?

 

"Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway...", It's that famous old song playing in our ears. We have learned through time that it really is the story of our lives! Lisa and I had been seeking the Lord for quite some time wanting His direction for our lives and our family. God sent us to Edgewood, Texas. Of this, we had no doubt! The family of New Journey Church of God has loved us tremendously. In nine short months, we have seen the Lord more than double our attendance and then more than triple our finance as we served as senior pastors. We have seen over 30 give their life to Jesus Christ and 40+ rededicate their lives. We have witnessed multiple miracles take place in the forms of healing, deliverance, and breakthrough. We have seen 52 new members joined the church while watching the lives and families changed by the power of God. New Journey is the type of place that no pastor ever wants to leave... but we know our calling! It seems that the Lord sends us into people's lives and into their situations to speak His word for their season. His season for us at New Journey has come to a close.

 

The Lord began to speak to us about going back on the road, and shortly after our kids began to come to Lisa and I. My 17-year-old daughter Marissa and 14-year-old son Zack began to tell us how they missed being on the road and ministering to people every single night. Even Caleb the six-year-old, begin to tell us how that he wanted to go back on the road. Lisa and I told the Lord that if this was His will, we wanted Him to guide and direct our steps. Within 48 hours after giving this to the Lord, we began to receive e-mails and phone calls from pastors in other states. Each of them would say, "I know you're pastoring, but the Lord has laid you on my heart to have you for revival at our church." Before we knew it our schedule began to fill up with such requests and we begin to see the hand of the Lord truly at work in us and for us. Especially in this economy it is amazing... The Lord has booked us all the way through Christmas, January is booking, and February is already gone. This is generally the hardest time of year to book revivals or schedule any type of meetings. God has definitely shown us that it is His will for us to pursue these doors of ministry.

 

It would almost be easier to leave if there were some problems at New Journey, because we love the people and they have shown their unequivocal love for us. We even joked with our state Bishop, we wanted to pick a fight with somebody so it would be easier to leave! Of course, he asked us not to do that... LOL. Doors have opened for us that we never imagined. We believe with all of our heart God has called us for this season - of closure to the events of time as we have known it. We are confident that God has called us to declare His word to His bride and to the lost in these closing moments before the glorious rapture of the church.

 

Our newsletters will begin again to go out monthly to inform our ministry followers and supporters of the events occurring in our lives and the miracles happening in people's lives. We covet your prayers and support as the Lord has placed a demand upon our talents, gifts, and callings during this season - as Mantle Ministries International launches out - "On the road again..."!

Revival Fire
THE FOLLOWING QUOTES ARE FROM THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED THE FIRE OF GOD ON THE FRIDAY NIGHT OF OUR REVIVAL IN MARKED TREE, ARKANSAS.

"The service was awesome. I believe we shouted all the way home. God's presence was so powerful all the way home (65 miles). He is a fire shut up in our bones that we can't contain and it is time we release this fire and show the world He is the true living God!"

- Pastor Mark White of Faith Pentecostal Church in Gobler, MO

 

 

"I was driving our church van home, after tonight's service, and the fire started in the pit of my stomach and spread to my left side. I had a burning sensation all in my stomach all the way up to the chest! While I was getting healed the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said,  not only am I healing you, but I am giving you the authority to go lay hands on others that they too can be healed!"

- Karen Simmerson of Marion Church of God in Marion, AR

 

 

"My 12 year old son was called to preach at the age of 7. God has always given him spiritual dreams. He's always been shy but hungry and curious about God. On our way home he told me he felt burning in his face after he got through praying. On the way home he kept telling us he felt like his feet were on fire. They were burning until we got home."

- Mother of boy from Marked Tree, AR

 

 

 

HERE'S WHAT PASTORS AND LEADERS ARE SAYING

 

 

Bishop Patrick Tucker

"The revival that we just came out of was awesome. The word that the Holy Spirit gave through Wade McKinney for the Marked Tree Church of God (Marked Tree, AR) was right on time. The church experienced healings, deliverance and prophecy and we are believing the Lord for great things in the future because of the revival. Thank You Wade and family for being obedient to the Lord!" - Senior Pastor of Marked Tree Church of God 

 

 

 

Bishop Rob Bailey

Bishop Rob Bailey

"God truly used Bro. Wade, his wife Lisa and their precious children to lead the congregation in worshiping the Lord in anointed music ministry and relevant drama minstry too. The Lord anointed Bro. McKinney as he preached powerfully from the Word each night. God also used him in the gifts of Prophecy, Word of Knowledge and Wisdom. It was especially refreshing as the congregatioin tarried in the altar allowing the Lord to transform them. There were testimonies of salvation, rededication, physical and spiritual healing, and numerous reports of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit." -  State YD Director of South Carolina

BEHRINGER ENDORSEMENT 

 

Many of you know that I have been working with sound and installing sound for small to medium churches for years. I believe that sound is extremely important and conducive to a great worship experience. We are so blessed to have been chosen by BEHRINGER, Inc. as a group to be endorsed. It is not that often that a Gospel - much less Southern Gospel - group is chosen to represent a major sound conglomerate like BEHRINGER. They are our official supplier of Sound Reinforcement Equipment that is German engineered for the highest sound quality. We are honored to work with them and we also endorse their products. Please support them, as they are supporting ministry!

CD by request front cover
 DO YOU HAVE OUR LATEST HERITAGE CROSSING CD?

 

Everywhere we went to minister, we were getting requests for some songs that we had not yet recorded. When the Lord mad a way for us to get back in the studio, we just decided to record a project with those songs that you loved. Our engineer, Scott Moody of Abstract Studios was incredible to work with. We prayed before every session that the anointing would accompany every song.  You can even go to our music ministry website (just click on the green below)
