  • Favorite Scriptures:

28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:28-31

38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

-Romans 8:38-39

12 Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the Lord do what seems good to Him.

-2 Samuel 10:12

8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.

-Psalms 2:8

9 You have captivated my heart, my sister, my bride; you have captivated my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.

-Song of Solomon 4:9

5 Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.

-Habakuk 1:5

Short Bio:

I’m a 2nd year student at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. My passion is spreading the Gospel through street evangelism, journalism, filmmaking and music. I’ve been a Christian for a little over 2 years at this point and God has been blowing my mind with the things He’s teaching me.

Short and Long Term Goals:

  • Short Term-See the Kingdom of God invade Ohio State, Columbus, and the rest of the entire region.
  • Long Term-Do some work in Hollywood and travel spreading the Gospel to the world.

Beliefs:

People often ask me what church I go to or what denomination I align myself with and I always give the same answer, I don’t like the denomination system. We must ask ourselves: If the Church is the Bride of Christ, and the Church is comprised of denominations that don’t agree, does that mean the Bride of Christ has multiple personality disorder? That isn’t what Jesus deserves. His Bride must be made Beautiful, without makeup. So I consider myself a Jesus-ist because I just Love Jesus and follow what the Bible says to do. It’s really that simple. Calvanism and Arminianism have nothing on Jesus.

10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 11 For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. 12 What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

-1 Corinthians 1:10-13

I believe in the fullness of the Great Commission in Mark 16. I believe we are all called to preach and proclaim the Gospel of the sacrifice and Love of Jesus Christ. And to do that God provided His Holy Spirit so that we can walk in power and display the Love of Jesus by healing the sick, casting out demons, receiving prophetic words, speaking in new tongues, and by living lives that display the Fruits of the Spirit.

15 Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

-Mark 16:15-18

12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

-John 14:12

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

-Galatians 5:22-24

4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.

-1 Corinthians 12:4-11

I believe the Church is supposed to live in complete Love and support of one another, and through our Love for one another we will see many come to know Jesus. In other words, the more we are counterculture the more people will wonder why.

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common.45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

-Acts 2:42-47

10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

-Romans 12:10

34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

-John 13:34-35

    I live in Columbus, Oh also and have been a Christian 35 yrs. Lon enough to be a part of John Wimber and the wave of signs and wonders in the 80’s (I lived in Pasadena). Moved here 10 yrs ago and have been in the refiners fire and the prayer closet asking God for the move of the Holy Spirit as I had experienced in Pasadena with Che Ahn , Lou Engel, Peter Wager and all the prophetic teaching and worship that I was privileged to be a part of. The Holy Spirit has been divinely connecting me with people in the past few yrs who are listening to God and doing what He say’s to do. I am a worshipper and intercessor and have been moving out in the gifting of healing. I am a retired Hospice RN and God has me on a team of people to fulfill a vision He gave me 25 yrs ago, to have what people thought was a Hospice, but they came and were spiritually, emotionally and physically healed and trained and discipled as healers and sent out. Am very interested in connecting with people who God is using in the miraculous realm. sounds like you are one of those!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
