CHANGING ATMOSPHERES

More than ever, we feel stirred to see transformation take place in the Midwest of America. Forever it seems like, the Midwest has been labeled as staunch, backwards, unmoving, and refusing to change, whether it be with the things of God or just current pop culture. But now, we're living in a time where cities are going to begin responding to the Lord in a way that brings transformation on a scale never seen before.

A worship movement is already rising up in the heartland of the United States that is pushing back darkness and declaring the goodness of God.

A worship movement is already rising up in the heartland of the United States that is pushing back darkness and declaring the goodness of God. This worship movement's foundation is the Presence and it is built on community. We are waking up to the reality that as worshippers, we can actually shift the atmosphere over an entire city, an entire region, making it easier for people to encounter God. 2 Corinthians 10 says that "...We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God...". We want to see the things that have set themselves up against people keeping them from the knowledge of God torn down and completely removed.

As worshippers, we are beginning to understand that not only are we leading worship for those in the room with us, but we are speaking, declaring, and advancing a kingdom against powers of darkness that have set themselves up over entire cities and regions.

As worshippers, we are beginning to understand that not only are we leading worship for those in the room with us, but we are speaking, declaring, and adavancing a kingdom against powers of darkness that have set themselves up over entire cities and regions. Atmospheres are shifted when we worship that can forever change the destiny of peoples lives and and the cities they live in.

When we begin to host His presence through worship, heaven is released naturally.

A point needs to be made here. We don't ever want to begin to gain the mentality that we are worshipping to get something from God. We don't worship to get, we worship because He is worthy. However, we have to also understand that when we worship the God of restoration and transformation, then restoration and transformation occur naturally. When we begin to host His presence through worship, heaven is released naturally.

Why community?

For years we attended churches and meetings where connection with each other was not given as high of a value as it should have been. Instead of pursuing connection with each other purposefully, we build walls and put up false fronts to keep people out. Instead of responding with love, we have responded to fear and pulled away from real relationship. Jesus made it clear, "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." - John 13:35. What does love look like? It pursues people, it pursues relationship, and it values that connection more than any belief or doctrine.

God is looking for worshippers.

Doing a google search for the meaning of worship will yield an over abundance of teachings and definitions of worship. The truth is God is looking for worshippers, those who are actively hosting His presence in the earth. Those who know how to love. Those who are pursuing others, who value relationship more than pet doctrines. It's time to connect. It's time to shift atmospheres. It's time to build community. It's time to love. It's time to worship.

It's time to connect.
It's time to shift atmospheres.
It's time to build community.
It's time to love... it's time to worship.
