Radiant Weekend

I returned to Kansas City, closely followed by two strange fellows from Houston.  It was a bit disconcerting.

Kidding.  The two guys who followed me were our bass player and drummer.  Having the whole band in one city is very helpful when desiring to practice or minister as a team.  We spent Friday and Saturday practicing and helping our new drummer (enter Matt Traylor) get familiar with our songs.  We also spent time praying together and meeting to discuss where the ministry is going and the things God is emphasizing to us about the coming season.

We're getting ready for a quick week-long Texas tour at the end of March.  We'll be hitting Sugarland, Magnolia, Conroe and more.  For a schedule of events, go to www.radiantworship.com and check out the events page.

While the guys were up here in KC, we had the opportunity to lead worship for IHOP's youth group.  We really had a great time.  We have a vision for revival to break out among the youth here; Richy and Jess have both had dreams about a youth revival in this city, so we are honored to be able to sow into this by helping encourage passionate worshiping fiery young hearts.

Here's to awakened Jesus kids changing their schools and worlds!

All about how the conference in Houston went...

Well, I made it back to this great, though somewhat Missourian, city of Kansas City, driving the whole way with oil leaking out of the bottom of my car.  Thought I had a stripped oil pan plug, but it turns out the dude that changed my oil just didn't tighten it tight enough.  (No names to protect the Remm... remainder of innocence... ;) )

Kingdom Glory Conference
The conference we dance at in Houston turned
out to be explosive and sweet.  Just as we had
felt in prayer that the Lord was saying, the 
conference began with strength and aggression,
as people came in ready to be free from the 
weights they had been carrying.  trEd was able to present our piece "Payback" at the very 
beginning of the first night.  The piece is all 
about the Lord being the One who takes vengeance on our enemies and brings them down under our feet.  It is a powerful and aggressive piece.

trEd and another dance company (HIS Company) traded off dancing spontaneously during the worship set, which Julie Meyer (out of IHOP Kansas City) was leading.  Between worship and the message, we also presented a piece to "Holy" by Matt Gillman, a very "throne room" type of song, exalting the holiness of God.  

Over the course of the conference, there were many blessed times of joy, freedom, victory, intercessory prayer and worship.  The last night there was such an anointing of joy, that I danced so hard I was almost sick.  What else can you do but dance with all your might, when God is so good and the victory of the cross so complete?  

We had prayed and felt like the Lord wanted to kiss the people with intimacy the last night.  And, oh man, was it beautiful.  Pray for Leah, our "captain."  She and her husband Nate had been scheduled to do a very intimate piece that night about Christ and His Bride; it's a piece that brings people into a love encounter with the Lover of their soul and rarely leaves a dry eye in the place.  But at the end of worship, Julie was singing spontaneously, and the Lord gave one of our other dancers a spontaneous dance that released exactly that kiss of intimacy that we had felt would come.  It was a good thing, too, because as we found out later, the injury Leah had sustained to her foot (and was going to dance on anyway) was actually a very nasty fracture.  Please keep her in your prayers for a complete and speedy healing.

So all in all, the conference was a beautiful success.  God revealed His to His people His victory, His love, His joy, His might in battle, and His overwhelmingly sweet love and desire He has for us.  We had many testimonies of people who said they were "energized" to live as overcomers instead of victims; there were many who wept at the revelation of Jesus as One passionately in love with them; I was even able to pray for a girl for deliverance from various things, and healing for an injury in her back.  She said she felt heat in her back, but I haven't heard whether the healing was complete.  But I believe God was doing something there.

Thanks to all of you who give to help me be a part of a ministry which encourages the Church to reach her full potential, living the life Christ died to give us.

Back in Texas with trEd

It is good to be back where the sun is shining and there is water in the air!  Just want to say a thank you to all those who have partnered with me financially so far this year.  You are a blessing!  Here is another level of what your support is allowing me to be a part of:

trEd Prophetic Dance
The Lord gave me a gift about a year and a half ago:  the opportunity to be a part of a company of friends who seek God with complete abandon and have given their lives over to see His Kingdom come on the earth - - - and whose primary expression of this is dance.  

I am home in Texas to get ready to dance at the Kingdom Glory Conference this weekend at Encourager Church in Houston.   (http://www.celebrationministries.com/web/pageid/79052/pages.asp)  We feel that the Lord wants to release His people from spiritual and emotional bondage this weekend, and that we are to dance for their deliverance, so that afterward He can come to them and kiss them with sweet intimacy.  Pray with us that His will would be fully done in that conference.

"trEd is a company of intercessors that interprets music through the power of spontaneous movement.  Their unique calling is to see breakthrough and deliverance through an aggressive style of dance.  Unified in heart and mind, they desire to see God's glory manifest on the earth and to see a generation consumed by the fire of God."

Please check out the videos on our new website (still under construction):

trEd will be ministering across the nation and the nations this year.  Stay tuned for updates on that as well!
