What:Are you hungry for more? Have you ever wanted to pray for someone you saw on the street but didn't have the courage? Do you believe miracles and healings are for today? Do you want learn how you can pray for the sick and see people healed? Power and Love is coming to Springfield Massachusetts this coming fall and you don't want to miss it!

Schools of Power and Love were birthed out of the vision to see the Church of Jesus Christ catch hold of its inheritance to win the lost, as Paul says, “in demonstration of the Spirit and of power” (I Cor 2:4 NAS).

It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to “come out of the closet!” We have the best kept secret of signs, wonders and miracles but until recently, they have been accessible only to those who might venture into one of our meetings! We believe that this is the season for Christians to demonstrate the gifts of prophecy, word of knowledge, and healing IN THE WORLD! We won’t be “arguing people into the kingdom” anymore…we will be demonstrating the love of God through revelation and power!

The plan is to hold Schools of Power & Love in cities across the US designed to empower you in the gifts of prophecy and healing as a lifestyle! These gifted teachers at Power and Love will not only give you a wonderful new understanding of power evangelism but then you will be “activated” as you “do the stuff” of the kingdom!

Early Bird Registration is just $40 until Sept 6th! After Sept 6th registration is just $60 and after Sept 28th registration will be $80. There are no group rates available. To find out more, to register, and how your church could help sponsor the New England Power and Love, visit

Hope for Today
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8
