Proclaiming God’s Word: “He is Able”

Sometimes we can be so limited by our abilities and what we think we can or cannot do. The good news is it is not about us and our abilities but about God and who He is and what He IS ABLE to do.  We are to focus on the wonderful truth that our God is ABLE, when we do that we have the right perspective, God’s perspective and truly nothing is impossible for Him!
Let us declare these words of truth together concerning what our God is able to do!



He is ABLE to save us forever who draw near to God through him, since He always lives to make intercession for us… Continue reading Proclaiming God’s Word: “He is Able”

Mere Christianity Quotes by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”

Proclaiming God’s Word: “Strength”

There are times when we are weak and do not feel strong, maybe because of sickness or trying circumstances, or busy times. There is good news for us however, for when we are weak He is strong and His strength is available to us every moment. It is so good to know it is not up to us and our ‘little bit’ of strength, but up to Him and His more than sufficient strength. Join me in proclaiming these verses today and may you be blessed with His joy, may you serve with the strength He gives and may you be strengthened with all power! Amen!

March Newsletter

Typical spring fever is enough to make anyone yearn to dig in the garden and to clean like crazy. But when this many people percolate with the same energy, spring fever takes on new meaning. We have just completed our INNvision program, and we jockeyed around the ongoing renovation in the meeting room each day while our guests were here. Meanwhile, the bottom of Ott’s House (the Rymer cabin) is ready for the final touches. The kitchen garden

A Time of Refreshing | Crandalls In YWAM St. Croix Missions

(A wonderful testimony from the Crandall family who recently attended our “INNvision” Family training here at CTCI)

A Time of Refreshing

Posted on March 17, 2014 by brianjackic

In mid-February, Brian and I (and the kids) had the opportunity to go to the mountains in North Carolina for a 2 week training program at the Christian Training Center International.  It was such a beautiful time of connecting with the Lord and growing as a family!  The main focus of our teaching was on what it looks like to be a Godly family and honor each other according to the Lord’s standards found in Scripture.  It can be really easy to decide what is best for our family based on our culture, background, media, etc.  These 2 weeks were devoted to diving into the Word and discovering God’s original design and plan for family.

We stayed at the INN, which is the main building on the CTCI campus.  Similar to our YWAM base, Continue reading A Time of Refreshing | Crandalls In YWAM St. Croix Missions

St. Patrick – Christian Hero

Young. Captured. Slave to world. Born again. Slave to God. Servant to all.
If your looking for some true history that screams… “Jesus”, take a look at the life of St. Patrick. Be encouraged by him. Thank the Lord for his life. Give up your dream of guzzling green beer for breakfast this week, and go find some rowdy rebels to evangelize in honor of the true St. Patrick.

Charles Spurgeon


“But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” Galatians 5:18

Whoever looks at his own character and position from a legal point of view will not only despair when he comes to the end of his reckoning, but if he be a wise man he will despair at the beginning. For if we are to be judged on the footing of the law, there shall no flesh living be justified. How blessed to know that we dwell in the domains of grace and not of law!

A little video from last summer to get you ready!


Proclaiming God’s Word: “NOW”

Sometimes as we walk through our days we look back fondly to times that were. If we are not doing that we often are looking forward to what is yet to be. It is good to gather the memories of the past and to anticipate eagerly what is ahead. God’s Word has so much to say about ‘Now’, I put this Proclamation together to help me live ‘Now’, and to appreciate what God has done for me and what He has and is giving me today. Proclaim this, because it is the truth!

May God bless YOU greatly as you walk with Him ‘Now’, may none of us miss the wonder and beauty of the moment we are in!
