In 2013, the LORD gave Chris a vision during a prayer meeting in which Christians were united in every sphere of society. He saw Christian leaders from every area, as well as intercessors, united in a covenant relationship to establish partnerships for societal transformation, and advance God’s Kingdom in their area of influence. Since this vision, Chris has been led to help unite the Church and Christians throughout California as well as internationally for the purpose of transformation. Both Chris and Carlene simply desire to be servants to the Body of CHRIST by helping them fully express what is in the FATHER’s heart for their family, community, state, and nation.
