About RI

Hi friends, my wife Cathy and I, along with our directors and partners, thank you for taking time to check out this exciting new network. After helping build organizations and churches, develop ministries, and train leaders for over forty years, God called us to launch the Rejoice International Network in 2011 in response to a vision I discuss below. Today we are connecting in fifteen countries and growing. We would love for you to join us.


Rejoice International is a dynamic global network of five-fold ministers, church leaders, marketplace leaders, and all Christ-followers who desire to help us connect and equip God's people around the world for end-time awakening and harvest of Biblical proportions. We do this in three ways:


1. PRAYER: First and foremost God has called us to raise up a prayer army in every time zone around the world so there is 24-hour prayer going on. To accomplish this we ask you to partner with us by praying 10 minutes a day for national, regional, local, and personal awakening and revival where you live, and for RI.


2. RELATIONSHIPS: We are committed to growing the RI network through freedom-based covenant relationships that genuinely have one another'€™s best interests at heart, encourages mutually beneficial friendships, and connects our gifts and callings for the greater glory of God. This helps equip the body of Christ to:


  • Recover the lost by sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Empower them thru teaching & training to become fully devoted Christ-followers,

  • Deploy Christ-followers into their ministry in the local church and mission in the world, and launch every five-fold minister/ministry into their purpose. 


3. OUTREACH: We are aggressively sharing the RI Network globally, and encourage our partners to join us in this effort. We are targeting existing and emerging leaders by coming alongside them with five-fold ministry gifts that support and help maximize the vision God has already given them, and by helping in practical ways.


We are doing this through personal, regional, national, and international meetings and conferences, and so much more. 




In Ezekiel 37:1-10, God showed the prophet a valley of dry bones that represented a defeated army that had withered away into insignificance. This is symbolic of much of the modern Body of Christ around the world in general. a lot of disconnected and very dry bones that do not connect or accurately reflect the image and glory of Jesus Christ. Yet in ten short verses God transforms these dry bones into a living, powerful, and vast army that is ready to once again go to war and win the battle.


So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet - A Vast Army.

- Ezekiel 37:10


The vision of Ezekiel's dry bones is the vision that inspired us to launch Rejoice International as a way to connect the dry bones€ in the body of Christ. Anything less is not a full representation of the Body of Christ, and this is the primary reason that "bones" get dry. They get dry because they are separated and lose connection to the vital contributions of the other parts of the Body of Christ.


RI does not ask you to leave current affiliations, fellowships, organizations or denominations, etc. Bring them with you and become a connector. Our call is to get back to the First Love principles of Christ (Rev. 2:1-5) that transcend our various groups.


Do you remember when all that mattered was Jesus? This is what it will take to see transformational awakening that reaches an entire lost and dying world for Jesus.RI is a bridge ministry to help us do this.


I am convinced that as long as we remain divided, and do not learn to network together with the other parts of the body of Christ, we will never finish the assignment that Jesus left us. There is no organization that has it all. WE NEED EACH OTHER!


Please consider becoming a part of helping answer Jesus' prayer for a unified Body. Unity brings God's blessing for His Kingdom to come, and His will to be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. We must decrease so that He can increase. It's all about Jesus, or it just doesn't matter.


"that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me."

 - John. 17:21 NIV

God has called Rejoice International to help connect and equip this vast army of the Body of Christ so that we may finish the Great Commission in our lifetime.


You can become a Rejoice International Partner today, and help change the world from where you are. Please let me know if you have questions or need more information. We are here to serve you.
