"Are you Soaring to High Places?"

As Christians we are constantly having to make decisions that not only affect our lives but the lives of many others.  To find out more on how these decision can affect our discipleship, check out the article written by Joseph Beckham entitled, "Decisions and Disciples." Click here for the rest of the story...

Prophetic teachers will engage your attention as they teach you how to hear God with greater accuracy, advancing the kingdom of God through you. Finally, you'll get hands-on experience in dealing with spiritual warfare, which is needed now more than ever.
