The Groan Of A New Era

An Apostolic Emergence

In a time where every foundation is being shaken and tested we have been envisioning an emergence of the Chief Cornerstone in every nation of the earth.  

Beloved, can you hear the groaning of a people who are ready to come out of slavery and step into the promised land that awaits us as sons and daughters in Christ?  As each day unfolds we are reminded to build in accordance to the pattern of Christ and there are many being brought to His Glorious Mountain for such a Pattern!

Habakkuk prophesied of such an event in Habakkuk 2:14,

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

Can you see an emerging army of laid-down lovers crying out to be sent?  Can you taste the dawning of a new day and apostolic age?  

It is with this hunger & heart cry that we see the Father remembering the promise granted to His chosen Son and responding by raising up a an apostolic witnesses that will herald the Name of Jesus unashamedly.

These witnesses have seen a new day dawning and are pledging their allegiance to go another way with the King of Kings at their head.  They are marked for nothing less than fulfilling the orders of their commission, and they are to be sourced from the very throne room of heaven. 

Are you hearing the groan of a New Era?

We believe many are and we want to provide language for the groan.

In this training intensive we will focus on giving language to the groan being released from Exodus 2:23-25 for a living and active apostolic witness.

“Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. So God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God acknowledged them.”

Our goal in these 12 sessions would be to summon those hearing the groan and gather them together in this online platform.  In these 6 weeks we will look to:

  • Give language to the apostolic groan being formed in the body of Christ in this time.
  • Affirm and encourage those in the pilgrimage desiring a tested and sure foundation.
  • Create a community for collaboration, connection and resourcing.
  • Establish apostolic doctrine that is rooted in the Word of God.
  • Identify the heart of an apostolic messenger.

Matthew has itinerantly ministered throughout the United States and overseas, committing his life to the Lord’s calling of preaching the Gospel and making disciples.

Growing up a “pastor’s kid”, Matthew felt the call of God and began to travel as a missionary ministering among inner-city poor. After sharing Christ in the notoriously violent and forgotten streets of places such as Brooklyn & the Bronx, NY and Watts Los Angeles, CA, Matthew went and lived among the poor and homeless in San Diego, CA. Fervently sharing Christ and assisting in planting house churches, it was here in southern CA, that he met his courageous wife. One month after getting married, they faith-journeyed across the country to serve the poor and plant house churches in Boston, MA. Currently, Matthew is shepherding a house church he planted in Texas and helping to oversee The Jesus Gathering.

Living by faith, Matthew has never received a salary from the church. By the miraculous provision and calling of the Lord, he ministers from a pure and passionate faith, glorifying God in proclaiming the Gospel to all peoples with signs and wonders following.
