In 1997 the Lord called Barry and Ruth to birth a ministry that could bring together people from across churches and denominations, generations and nations. Gatherings began in their home with a small group of believers who longed for a revival of the lost truths that set the world on fire in the Book of Acts. They were passionate lovers of Jesus who earnestly wanted to understand how to live their lives to the fullest for God, though many had grown deeply discouraged and even painfully disillusioned about how to do that. Word spread. In 2001, Africa opened up to them. Over a period of eight years, they lived among the people for months at a time, going deep into the bush to bring the Gospel to the most dangerous, outermost tribes in East Africa. Enduring relationships were birthed with apostolic leaders. They came from the tribes that were killing each other and gathered together in Barry and Ruth’s compound. They wept and prayed and forgave one another. Walls came down. A brokenness caused all to seek the face of God in a radical new way. They learned how to love one another as His Family. Revival broke out on a mountain. When the unsaved witnessed the explosion of love and unity and the powerful Visitation of God’s presence during worship, they danced and celebrated in the streets. They asked the Christians how they could be born again. Across the denominations the churches grew.
The calling of the Father on this Ministry continues to be this same passionate message wherever He sends Barry and Ruth.
