About us

Our vision

Touching hearts, changing mindsets, changing behavior, changing culture, bringing transformation


This vision includes an equipping and training, counseling rooms, prayer and healing rooms– a place of refuge for the hurting, sick, lost, and bound. We also envision a host site for anointed speakers and teachers that provide kingdom thinking principles based on the 5-fold ministry model. Resources are available in our bookstore. This vision is only a piece of the bigger plan that God has to enrich and empower the lives of those He loves so deeply. 


Empowering Life Center hosts The Gathering which is not designed to be a typical church. Our government is different, our focus is different and our operation is different. Most churches are set up as a destination but we are set up as a launching pad. It’s not about going to, it is about moving out. A typical church cares for the sheep and that is important but we are called to raise up an army and mobilize it and equip others to minister. We are not called to retain, we are called to release.


We are not asking you to fit in to our programs, we desire to help you discover your God given purpose and then do everything we can to train, equip, empower and release you into your destiny. We are not about building an organization or a church. We are interested in building the Kingdom of God, one heart, one individual at a time releasing you into your destiny.  We will raise up Five Fold Ministers that are strategists, builders, and connecters with evangelistic, pastoral, prophetic giftings. Our goal is to take spiritual territory and affect community. Empowering Life is not designed to be program oriented, we reach, heal, set free, train, equip, empower and release. 

We exist to serve others by Empowering Life through:


The Gathering

The Gathering is a place for individuals to come together to experience and have an encounter with almighty God. This is done by recognizing and welcoming the presence of the Holy Spirit. Our worship time is intentional through creating an atmosphere for the Holy Spirit to move freely in our midst through His manifest presence and through trained and equipped individuals that are accountable to leadership. We highly value the word of God being declared and demonstrated through; preaching, teaching, the gifts of the Spirit and laying on of hands. 

Empowering Life Counseling Center

We currently have three counselors available.  Check out our counselor page for more information.

Empowering Life Equipping 

Our vision is to help individuals discover their God given purpose; bring clarity to that purpose so they can be intentional. Once the individuals know their purposes then we do everything we can to train, equip, resource, connect, empower and release them into their destiny.  Training & Courses available can be found on our event page and online course page.
