A Personal Note
I spent part of the Labor Day weekend reading Desire to Destiny. Writing a book is a little too much like having a baby… You don’t want to sign up for the next one right away. I got into chapter 21 about goals and ran into this:
4. For people who got lost on the way; pastor them to their dream; include them in the cause.
5. Deploy an army of like-minded mentors and coaches to help with number 4.
Marketplace ministry is both an evolution and a revolution that God is using to fund and accomplish the great commission. Our churches are filled with people that believe they will never make it into full time ministry. The older they get the more their hopes of being used by God have faded. They each have so many motivational “tries” before they give up and many have used their allotment. When we are saved and filled with the Holy Spirit we all have a desire to fulfill our destinies. We just haven’t understood that most of us aren’t called to a pulpit in a local church… there’s something better.
I hear the voice of the Holy Spirit like a cry in the wilderness… It’s the great shepherd, Jesus, calling His people back to their dream. I hear the dry bones of Ezekiel’s army rattling themselves together to stand again. And, I can hear breathing among a people passed by. The Day of the Lord is upon us. It’s time for you and I to reach out to those “who got lost on the way.” The work of the ministry belongs to the saints and their platform is the marketplace. God is calling His people into the ministry. Those whose dreams have been stolen and destroyed are now invited into life and life more abundantly. Your dream can come true; prosperity and fruitfulness will be your portion. Joy will be your anthem. Lives will be touched by your ministry. A grassroots revival of financial breakthroughs has already begun. It’s something the Lord is doing that you shouldn’t miss… and, like Andrew, we shouldn’t miss telling Peter, we’ve found Jesus – in the Marketplace!
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. John 10:10 NASU
Andrew , Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. John 1:40-42 NIV

One person read Releasing Kings and left this review on Amazon.com.
This book was a true revelation to me. I am beginning to move from the Priesthood anointing into the Kingly anointing and didn’t even understand it until I read this book. It brought to me understanding, wisdom, and revelation in my spirit to what I already knew in my heart. It is clear as a bell to me now!
Life is an adventure. People are a blessing. God is amazing. We’re winning.

Want more? There are several ways you can get involved with Releasing Kings.
The message – I would like to duplicate the conferences through other mentors, coaches, and speakers. The notes and tapes are available on our teachers guide and conferences pages. Harold Eberle and David Harris are already organizing Releasing Kings conferences on their own. My sense is that God wants many others equipped to impart this message. If that’s you, what has worked best to host a conference so you can watch the dynamic. The next step is to participate and teach a few of the modules. By then you will be contagious – it’s easy to do something that Father God is already doing!
The Money – We also want to network investment and business opportunities. We want to help young people, and the young at heart, launch their dream and become prosperous and generous. We’ve collected a first fruits on our Interviewing Kings page. It’s a small start and there are many other networks we’ll hook up with in the future. Help us find them. And, if you represent an opportunity that others could participate in, let us know.
The Mission – Kings are changing the way we reach the world. We’ll still do crusades and pastor’s conferences. Want’s new is that Kings are doing them. They are also networking the local business starts to fund them around the world. Missions are about to become self-sustaining as Kings impart their ability to multiply finances in the marketplace. You’re invited to reach across a border and help a brother out of poverty by mentoring him through a business start. Mark Charles is working with us to blaze this trail with examples and our goal is to multiply all sizes of businesses on the mission field as well as at home. Micro businesses can be started will a few hundred to a few thousand dollars… Why not you? Our goal is to provide a clearing house to network ideas, opportunities, financing, and mentors.
The Lord is inviting you into your dream… and He’s inviting you to take a brother by the hand and pull him up to your level. It’s fun!
