Prayer Ministry



 The one thing that holds this ministry and our work together is our prayer ministry headed up by Deidre Schilling and the prayer team known as the Twelve Disciples.  Did you know that our prayer register has over 300 requests to date?  Each of the names is called out to the Lord everyday not just on Wednesday.  It is a humbling thing to call out 300 names to the Lord knowing that you need as much prayer as any of these names.  Many people will be touched by the Lord through Hands Up Ministry who otherwise might never attend church.

Hands Up Meetings




Are You Available?



 IS at the Towers are now having meetings weekly on Wednesdays.  Contact is Deidre Schilling.

Mezcala 2016

Missions Trip To Mexico

My dream now for 2016 is to return to Mezcala, Mexico and finish the church that was part of the vision of my friend Clinton Hendershot. The trip did not happen due to my daughter being treated for breast cancer; however, she is cancer free now and we can move on with a trip.

Pray for our churches in the Dominican Republic and Mexico


·         Villa Progresso Church, Dominican Republic

·         El Curro Church, Dominican Republic

·         La Resolana, Mexico

·         Mezcala, Mexico




Be missions minded not absent minded.


Keep praying for the vision.

The Journey


In January Michelle let me and her mom and a bunch of friends know that she had a cancerous tumor in her breast.  For several minutes I was numb and could not move.  Then the Spirit of the Lord spoke this verse to me in assurance that all was well.  I went out and made caps that said "WE WIN".

2 Timothy 1:77 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

While many worried and rightfully so, I stood on this promise and believed things would be fine.  Going through all the sixteen trips to Lynchburg for treatments and watching not only Michelle but many, many others going through this battle, God had a platform to show Himself as God.

Michelle had her lumpectomy on Tuesday and today the doctor advised her that she is cancer free.  Hallelujah WE WIN with God.

God is faithful and He kept reminding me of this other verse to keep focus.

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Thanks to all who have prayed for us to the God that never fails.

Special thanks to Katherine and Lacy, Longwood University, Virginia Tech Softball, Liberty University, Dr. Ploch, Dr. Patell,  and All the nurses at Centra Cancer Center. It has been six months of fighting but God had told Michelle to stand and see the salvation of the Lord and she has seen it.

Being thankful is such a small word at this time.
