Because Jesus is Worthy!

In 2008, Derrick had the opportunity to spend time in Washington DC, to fast and pray in partnership with Justice House of Prayer-DC, The Call, and Bound4Life leading up to the 2008 elections.  During that season, God knit Derrick's heart to D.C. and tho it is almost 10 years later, has hope for a mighty move of God for our Nation.

Recently we(Derrick and Heather) have been made aware of a historic and unprecedented event called Awaken the Dawn.  For anyone that knows us, they would know that Worship and Prayer are pillars in our faith.  Something happens when we not only enter into worship and prayer as individuals, but join together in one accord with other believers.

In brief, Awaken the Dawn is a massive tent gathering on the National Mall in DC, where every state in the Union will have a tent, that for 3 days will have 24/7 continuous worship and prayer, culminating on the 4th day with The Call: Rise Up.

This historic event will happen Friday October 6th, 2017 - Monday October 10th, 2017.

Why $5000...?

Derrick has been given the amazing oportunity to gather and lead a team from Chico, CA, to help minister and serve in the California Tent.

The Lord has also weighed heavely on Heather's heart to not only be apart of Awaken the Dawn, but to join her voice in prayer and intercession with thousands of other woman at The Call: Rise Up.

In seeking the Lord through prayer, we believe that the Lord gave us the number $5000 to ask for.  The cost of getting to and from Washington DC, including hotel, food, and transportation while in DC, our total cost for Derrick, Heather, and Micah is roughly $3000 (airline tickets and hotel prices will rise fast due to supply and demand).

The other $2000 is to help sow into, and make a way for others to attend that are financially unable to go but believe the Lord has called them to attend and partner.

Something bigger than ourselves...

$5000 is alot of money, atleast to us.  But in the kingdom of God, it is but a drop in the bucket. God is Faithful to provide, especially when He leads.

This trip we believe is also very significant and strategic for our family.  


By sowing financially, you are choosing to invest not only into this family, but into the Spiritual Future of our Nation.

We are suppose to head out in about 26 days for D.C.!

We are beyond excited and expectant!

We have raised just over $900 so far, and are beyond greatful!

But, there is more work to be done! We still are in need of at least $2500 to cover our cost

Plane tickets: $1400-$1900 round trip

Housing: $200-$300 per night(we are trying to find an AIRBNB that is cheaper)

Those are our immediate needs. 

Would you consider partnering financially with the Lord and us?

One Voice! A Unified Cry!
August 23, 2017, 9:13 pm

As the day approaches, a reality is starting to shine forth. A call in our City, State, and Nation to unify. It reminds us of what the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 133

“How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!”  Psalms‬ ‭133:1 ‭NLT

Or as it is written in the NKJV:

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭133:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

There is a longing deep in the hearts of humanity for unity. It is a built in, by design, longing created by God. He longs to have and see unity with The Body of Christ, just as there is unity within the Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Something very powerful happens when unity abounds, we see an example in Acts 2:

“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit…”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:1-2, 4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

If you continue reading that passage, you see that many came to a professing faith in Jesus. In fact you could call it the first ever Jesus Movement. 

Awaken The Dawn and TheCall: RiseUp is about a unified sound, unified prayer, unified song going forth, that we might see another Jesus Movement and a Third Great Awakening!

We are called to join our voices in with one accord with the thousands that will gather on The National Mall in Washington D.C.

Please consider partnering with us financially, oh that Jesus’ Name would be uniformly exalted in, over, and through our Nations Capital.
