Global Legacy Partners is providing a channel for a breakthrough legacy for those who see me as their primary mentor and “Apostolic Mother” in the Lord. It can be in very diverse ways that people feel connected to me and I have learned over the years not to limit it. I have heard from people that I have mentored them through my books, my teachings, conferences and strategic events I have hosted personally and those I have been a part of. Many more have said it has been through their observation of my very life itself. I am humbled as I consider all of this and those the Lord has allowed me the privilege to impact over the years.
To restore the DNA of the church (people) to the original New Testament church model. A breakthrough church of revived, awakened, empowered and transformed people who through God’s love and power break into and transform the “world” of their assignment, harvesting and discipling nations—the realm to which they are called. We believe God‘s ultimate heart for the church is to be in ongoing revival.
We are an ever-evolving, breakthrough people, who are going from faith to faith, strength to strength and glory to glory.
