Why are young people attracted to the Holy Spirit?

Why are young people attracted to the Holy Spirit? The answer quite honestly is not all that different from why anyone is attracted to the Holy Spirit; because we know that we functionally need God in our lives. We need the love of our heavenly Father. We need the grace and freedom that only Jesus can give (no matter how hard we try to obtain it on our own). We need the empowerment of the Holy Spirit daily in our lives guiding us. Why? So that we may know Him and enjoy Him every day of our lives!

A big thank you to Chase Brouthers for interning with PRMI the past ten months! Chase participated in the AriseI student leadership program in the summer of 2013 and upon completion felt the Lord leading him to stay for further work with PRMI. Chase did administrative work as well as assisting in leadership with Upward Challenge, With the Wind and the youth component of Spiritual Dynamics of Global Mission. Through various projects, he also contributed in forming some foundational pieces for the future of the youth work in PRMI.

Along with learning more about leadership in ministry, Chase was a wonderful part of our community here at the Community of the Cross in Black Mountain, NC. Please pray for Chase as he seeks direction for the next place the Lord is leading.

Encountering The Heart Of The Father

A Father-Heart Experience at the Community of the Cross: Encountering The Heart Of The Father, Wed. Oct. 22 – Sun. Oct 26
Article by Debbie Kemp

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:5

Encountering the Fathers Heart brochureOh, how we long for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit! For many, though, our hearts are still too broken, that last experience of God fades, and disappointment sets in. But God is doing a new thing today- He’s pouring out His love with real substance, revealing Himself as Father, making us feel wanted and valued as His precious beloved children, and healing the vessel so we can hold onto His love.

Dunamis Project Continues in South Korea

Here are some highlights from Ben Torrey’s report on the recent Dunamis Project #2 In the Spirit’s Power in Danyang, Korea. Speakers were Ben Torrey, Pastor Young Woon Ahn and Prof. Dong Soo Kim of Pyongtaek University.

[Note: participants were largely from the conservative Koryo Presbyterian denomination (Koshin for short). The co-director of Korea Dunamis Network, Pastor Ahn, is from this denomination.]

Everything went very smoothly. We felt the presence of the Holy Spirit. Our intercessor team consisted of four people under the good leadership of Mrs. Mi Hye Lee. They were especially invigorated, and we were all blessed, to have a new volunteer who actually replaced a young woman, Sophia, who had been very faithful in the past but just got married a couple months ago so could not come.

The new intercessor is Pastor Kuk Hui Lee of Central Suyeong Church in Pusan (Koshin). Pastor Lee has been through most of the seminars. His church was founded in 1933, I believe, and is one of the founding churches of the denomination–a very well-regarded church within the denomination.

On the last day, he shared with us about how the Holy Spirit has been working in his church as a result of Dunamis. He recently conducted a special prayer seminar at this church that had a great impact. He has had his elders interceding for the services but, after his own experience at Danyang standing on the walls, he realizes that this is a very special and powerful way to intercede. He is going to position his elders around the sanctuary for the Sunday services on the walls. Read More →

How Dunamis Helped me Share my Faith with a Friend

How Dunamis Helped me Share my Faith with a Friend

Chris Walker, Evangelism Coach and Dunamis Teacher

Fear is what used to overwhelm me when it came to sharing my faith with friends.
It wasn’t always that way.

How I started in Personal Evangelism

When I first became a Christian, I naturally shared my faith.
I was discovering all sorts of things about the Bible, and willingly sharing my learnings with people around me.
I’d read something in my quiet time, and then find someone to share it with during the day.
I’d read a Christian book and would share insights with my friends at school.
It was pretty normal for me to talk about the work of God in my life. Read More →

Healing and Deliverance Equipping Stream

Healing and Deliverance Equipping Stream
By Cindy Strickler

At the Advance Course on Healing and Deliverance in Northampton, UK , we witnessed Jesus Christ working in and through the groups in power in a number of major deliverances that took place. The teams were led by the Holy Spirit to discern the presence of evil spirits and then cast them out. In one situation a number of evil spirits had entered the person, including spirits of deception and fear. When the ground of entry was removed through inner healing they were cast out. The final evil spirit to be exposed and expelled was a demon of death. When this demon was confronted it manifested its presence by what actually felt like the person dying. The point person in the deliverance persisted in the power and authority of Jesus Christ, the death grip was released and the demon left. Then the whole team moved into a time of exalted praise of Jesus Christ and affirmed that there is life in Jesus! Read More →

Waves of the Spirit

The following is a session of the Dunamis Fellowship International Annual Meeting in Black Mountain, NC on January 26th,2013 summarizing moves of the Spirit throughout history.

Doug McMurry gives a brief history of moves of the Holy Spirit, showing how the Holy Spirit is a “west moving wind” and connected PRMI’s work in Asia to the Lord’s current move to take the gospel back to Jerusalem.

Taking the Gospel of Jesus where the Church is not!

When Laura and I were sent as PC US missionaries to Korea and then to Taiwan, we were given no spiritual equipping for the work. On the mission field we learned how much we needed Jesus in moment by moment relationship. We experienced the truth that we could do nothing without the infilling of the Holy Spirit undergirded by an anointed prayer life. We discovered listening evangelism and effective spiritual warfare were crucial to the undertaking.

The last 25 years of developing the Dunamis training have prepared PRMI to provide the spiritual equipping necessary for missionaries to be effective in their witness to Jesus Christ. It has been my prayer during this quarter century that we could host an event for missionaries as they embark on their missions.

Under the tent at the COC. Note: faces of missionaries are purposely kept indistinct.  Many ask that their names and pictures not be publicized because of the dangerous areas into which they are going.

Note: faces of missionaries are purposely kept indistinct. Many ask that their names and pictures not be publicized because of the dangerous areas into which they are going.

After a year of prayer and planning, we began to see that prayer answered at the Spiritual Dynamics of Global Mission event (June 9-16). We packed out the COC. We even had to set up our tent! Almost 60 missionaries including children attended. Most of them are Evangelical Presbyterian Church’s World Outreach workers. Many others who participated are veterans of PRMI’s short term Dunamis trips. They benefited from the event doubly since they also helped to staff it. Life in Abundance, a mission to the poorest places on Earth, was also represented. Read More →
