marketplace - outreach

Luke 16:16 "Moses' Teachings and the Prophets were in force until the time of John. Since that time, people have been telling the Good News about the kingdom of God, and everyone is trying to force their way into it. MSG

Jesus gave us a clue as to the importance of the church for today. He let us know that the Gates of Hades would not prevail and yet...the church seems to be struggling for her identity even to the point of embracing sociological norms as equivalent to scriptural authority. We as the church must be salt and light in the world if we are to make disciples of the nations. It is time for us to rise up.

Missions - DVIM

Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”  ESV

Destiny Vision International Ministries is our ministerial arm that incorporates missions both at home and abroad. We have enlisted the cooperation of several mighty men and woman of God who have stepped up to embrace the ideals of Destiny and have committed their lives to seeing them implemented worldwide. We encourage people to be involved with missions and through our missions seminars, we provide opportunities for those who have never been involved in missions the opportunity to serve.

marriage - Successful relationships

Hebrews 13:4  Marriage is honorable in every way, so husbands and wives should be faithful to each other. God will judge those who commit sexual sins, especially those who commit adultery. GW

Godly marriage is the bedrock of any society. When we lose the focus of the godly pattern for families, we lose society as a whole. Marriage seminars are conducted by Lonny and Kim as they share the ups and downs of marriage in a bold, challenging and often humorous perspective. Their seminars are based in the Word of God which is the basis for all successful marriages. Their humorous perspective comes as they share their own inadequacies and how they had to set aside personal biases ensuring alignment to the word of God.

Money - Biblical financial principles

Luke 16:9-11 Jesus continued, "I'm telling you that although wealth is often used in dishonest ways, you should use it to make friends for yourselves. When life is over, you will be welcomed into an eternal home. 10  Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with a lot. Whoever is dishonest with very little is dishonest with a lot. 11 Therefore, if you can't be trusted with wealth that is often used dishonestly, who will trust you with wealth that is real? GW

Local churches are finding the power in helping their people understand how money works. Most individuals do not have the knowledge nor can they afford to obtain the information necessary to make wise financial decisions. Lonny has been in the financial industry as a financial professional since 2005. He brings a unique perspective to the local church by sharing Biblical principles of wealth as well as the tips, tricks and secrets the financial services community do not want people to know. Most churches schedule annual meetings to reinforce this Biblical principles.

Mentoring - Leadership

Romans 12:8 If it is encouraging others, devote yourself to giving encouragement. If it is sharing, be generous. If it is leadership, lead enthusiastically. If it is helping people in need, help them cheerfully. MSG

"Leadership is always the problem, always the solution." When we look to the future of ministry, we must start with those who will be leading. God is a generational God always thinking in generations such as, "Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." Too often church leadership is only concerned with the moment and not succession. We must develop leaders with a generational idea in mind. Lonny brings and understanding not only of generational succession, but what is necessary to prepare for that succession ensuring smoother transitions.
