God is stirring in His people a relentless desire for Jesus and His Kingdom! He is calling sons and daughters to go into all the earth, laying down their lives, discovering His heart for the last, the least, and the lost. We believe God is preparing a great, end-time army of faith-filled risk takers who move together in rhythm with His heart and with one another.
