VinePOWer 2009: Refresh, Renew, Restore

VinePOWer 2009 was a POWerful weekend that touched many lives through the love of God.  God revealed His heart through the preaching of the Word and the demonstration of His power to set lives free and to bring healing and deliverance.  God used the various members of the body both young and old to speak words exhortation and encouragement.  It was an unprecedented gathering as we trusted the Spirit of God to lead and to direct our Vinepower this year.  We did not have an outside speaker but we believed that the Holy Spirit himself would be our speaker, and that He did through the Leadership team and other members of the Body.  Messages were given by Michelle on the heart of the Father, Billy on the power of God in the life of Samson.  We had the activation of the prophetic ministry in which a number of people participated to give and to receive prophetic ministry.  The worship times ushered in the presence of God to prepare us for each of the sessions.  In the end, it was the obedience of God’s people to respond to what He was saying in our hearts that released the power and move of His spirit.  Five (5) people accepted Jesus for the very first time.  Five other people were baptized and many others were ministered to by God.  The weekend was also highlighted by the recognition of the generations and the exhortation to walk together and the renewing of the dreams and visions God has placed on our lives.  The following pictures reflected some of the moments of our time together.
