The concept of SimpleChurch/HouseChurch/OrganicChurch is one that I have adhered to for nearly thirty years, even though I was credentialed through a large Institutional Church organi-
zation for a number of those years.
When properly formatted, it is the most natural setting in which to mentor disciples for the Kingdom of God. It is my consensus that the fellowship of believers was designed by the Spirit and Church Fathers to be lived in a more personal and intimate manner than can be realized in the Institutional Church setting. In such a close proximity masks are removed sooner, than later, so that true "body" life can be realized...healing, deliverance, growth, vision, sharing, and "one anothering."
My mentoring program is called Kingdom Institute. This program is designed to undergird God's people as they develop their relationship with the Father and His Body and come to know who they are in His unique family. The Lord refers to it as the "work" that He gave me as opposed to a "ministry." We have released seven strong groups since the mid 90's when I understood "multiplication" and diversity.
I am a poet and prophetess by calling and anointing. I am the author of four books. Two are presently out of print.: "The Making of a Servant" and "Poetry: A Prescription for Healing." My latest published book, "His Daughters Do Prophesy," can be purchased at BarnesandNoble.com or Amazon.com. My memoirs of thirty years of unorthodox and unheralded assignments called, "Without Apology: On Call for God" is now available.
I am the mother of one son, Nigel, and the grandmother of one grandson, Jonathan. I also have a beautiful extended family of loving and godly people, including our warts and all.
I bless the "Church" in whatever form it manifests (Simple Church or Institutional Church) as long as it is fullfilling the Heart of the Father concerning His people...saved and unsaved.

The definition for anarchy is "lack of government in a state; lawlessness; confusion," and anarchism is "a system of certain revolutionaries, aiming at a society with no government, in which each man should be a law unto himself" (anarchist).

For many years I have been involved with Organic/Simple Church through diverse expressions and have come to the realization that the Body should and indeed can mimick the Head. As we simply love the Father with all of our being and our neighbors as ourselves, the life of Christ is manifested in our mist. His Kingdom comes, and His will is being done in earth, as it is in heaven. He is indeed King of kings, and Lord of lords!
Following are a few of the benefits that we…

Many of us have no clue concerning social graces, but we can teach, and preach, and quote every scripture in the Bible. Somehow, we have conveniently overlooked what God's Word says about being a gracious guest in someones home, about taking the lower seat instead of the highest seat in a social gathering unless invited to do so, about responding timely to an invitation. RSVP is a non-entity today, and thank you cards are extinct. …Continue
