Ministries are under the direction of John & Dee Mann who have a mandate from God the
Father to see his people set free with a greater emphasis on Apostles, Prophets,
Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers who are anointed by God and placed in His Church for the
perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of
Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of
God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
Pastors today are faced with more work, more problems, and more
stress than any other time in the history of the church. This is taking a frightening toll
on the ministry. Fifteen hundred pastors leave
the ministry each month due to moral failure, spiritual burnout or contention in their
churches. Fifty percent of pastors'
marriages will end in divorce. Fifty
percent of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry if they could,
but have no other way of making a living. (Statistics provided by Maranatha Life)
It is normal for Pastors to have
emotional highs and lows, but when discouragement becomes debilitating it can knock them
out for good.
We are here to listen to your story
without judging or condemning you. We will
listen and we will pray the prayer of agreement with you.
Jesus said if two of you shall agree on earth as
touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in
heaven. We believe the Word of God is
true and we want to encourage and bless you.
