|Tidewater Ecclesia Arise
A Great Harvest
As we begin to worship and serve together in Tidewater, VA, we prepare for the
greatest harvest this area has ever seen. The fruit of reconciliation between
pastors and leaders is unified service. The fruit of unified service is a great
harvest of souls. God has revealed that He has held back many challenges in
our region (such as natural disasters, the like of which we have seen in other
ares), because He doesn't want us to unite because of tragedies. Instead, He
wants us to CHOOSE to unite around Him, preparing for any challenges that
may come upon our community. As, challenges occur, the UNITED BODY IN
TIDEWATER--THE ECCLESIA--will be able to respond because we are
connected in worship AND service. The Lord has revealed that we will THEN
see creative miracles and multiplication, as our supplies become unending and
those to whom we minister are miraculously restored. This will produce the
greatest harvest we have seen in this area and bring glory to GOD, not any one
person, ministry or denomination! It is our unity He wants to bless!
The Initial Commitment
Commit yourself and your ministry to praying weekly about unifying the Body of
Messiah in Tidewater, VA and Healing our Nation. Also prayerfully consider
taking part in the prayer schedule at Tidewater House of Prayer, as God has
given a vision of every city in Hampton Roads filling the prayer schedule on one
day each week. Contact Pastor Miguel Dabul for more information (see below).
Commit yourself and your ministry to fasting every Wednesday, on one accord
with various other ministries throughout Tidewater, VA.
1) There are many gatherings led by The Truth In The Spirit, Overflow Ministries
and the Tidewater House of Prayer, wherein we unite and reconcile for the
purposes of revival in our region. Bring your questions and comments
concerning these important topics to any of our meetings or email your
questions and comments each week to Apostle Markita Smith at
email@example.com. Apostle Markita sends out emails regularly to prepare
pastors and leaders for the upcoming gatherings. Please contact her if you
would like to receive these weekly emails.
2) Share this Ecclesia call and revelation with other ministers, ministries and
networks you know. Gather together other believers to begin to pray into and
plan an “Ecclesia Elders Gathering” in your city. At that gathering, Apostle
Markita Smith will train leaders in your city to apply the 9-step plan for revival
God has given us.
3) Connect with us to plan an “Ecclesia Arise” Conference in YOUR city or
county. Each conference will require:
~A meeting place large enough to accommodate the ministries that come
together (host ministry),
~At least 3 ministries in each city to unite in prayer, planning, support and
~One weekend in which to schedule the conference (Thurs-Sat or Fri-Sun).
We are currently planning these gatherings, so please contact Apostle Markita
Smith for more info.
4) Seek God about your ministry becoming the Administrative Coordinator for
your city. One ministry per city will be needed to serve as an administrative
coordinator. This ministry will maintain a database of contact information and
ministry services for the city in which they serve. They will also serve as the
central contact and correspondence coordinator for that city.
Pastors and Leaders Agreements
To awaken and arise into our position of authority and ambassadorship in our
communities, the Ecclesia must unite. See “Community Service Models”
handout. Yet, in order for us to unite, we must agree. Here is our agreement.
Choose to love one another, because we are diverse. Commit to love
one another, because working together will challenge us.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must
love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you
love one another."—John 13:34-35
Speak the truth in love to each other, not just about others but also
about ourselves (being vulnerable and honest).
“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the
mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”—Ephesians 4:15
Keep the Lamb at the center of the throne, shepherding us all, and
leading us to living water. Then He will reveal solutions and empower
us to join Him in His work.
“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; 'he will lead
them to springs of living water.' 'And God will wipe away every tear from their
eyes.' ”—Revelation 7:17
