This year, we are again hosting a Lent Negativity Fast. As many of you are aware, during the Lent season many believers decide to "fast" something they like. In an effort to renew our mind, change the way we think, and live as the greatest encouragers in our environment, we will be "giving up" negativity and feasting on positivity by reading through the book Igniting Faith in 40 Days during Lent.
If you participated with us last year, we encourage you to do it again. Be looking for more details about the event in future newsletters. Here are the steps to signing up:

  • Join the Facebook Event page to share testimonies with other participants.
  • Get our book entitled, Igniting Faith in 40 Days. It is great for individual and group studies. Click here to purchase.

We are thrilled to announce Igniting Hope Ministries first conference will be a pastors conference with a special emphasis to help church leaders in rural settings.You don't have to be a rural pastor to attend this conference, but we will have special breakout sessions and teachings tailored to equip and train leaders of smaller to mid-size churches to raise up leaders from among their people.

This life-changing event will take place atBridgeway Church in Denver, CO, fromOctober 21-23, 2014. We will open registration for this event in January, so be looking for more information.


Paul Manwaring and I will again be hosting theBelievability School on March 24-26, 2014 at Bethel Church. We began this school last year as a way for people to be transformed in their mind, will, and emotions in order to become a believable person and leader. We address various aspects of becoming believable and give tools for personal and corporate breakthrough such as declarations, laughter, and vulnerability.
