Covenant Community Fellowship – New Albany

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Sep 17, 2008  /     Uncategorized  /     1 Comment

As many of you know, in addition to evangelism, I have been involved in church planting initiatives for several years. Three wonderful churches have been planted as a result. This past weekend I traveled to New Albany, Indiana (just outside the city limits of Louisville KY) to minister in one of those churches…Covenant Community Fellowship.

Even though the church is only a few months old, the Lord has blessed them with an incredible facility, a highly anointed (and talented) ministerial staff and a bunch of wonderful people. They have been experiencing notable signs and wonders there, and I felt Sunday that they have only seen the beginning. If you live in the “Kentuckyanna” area I would highly recommend their “Crave” services that take place once a month on a Friday night. Please visit their website for more information…

F.I.R.E.

Last week I had the privilege of ministering in Charlotte, North Carolina at FIRE Church and FIRE School of Ministry, led by Dr. Michael Brown and Rev. Bob Gladstone. I myself am a graduate of the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry of which FIRE School is an offshoot. Most of the faculty members at FIRE were my professors in the Brownsville days, and the atmosphere of fire and revival is the same. I felt very much at home.

On Thursday night I ministered to the church, encouraging them to live dangerously for God. Then on Friday morning I was able to speak to the senior students of the school. I know they will go on to do great things for God.

In Season and Out (Kafanchan, Nigera – Crusade Report)

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Sep 11, 2008  /     Posted from Charlotte North Carolina  /     1 Comment

Ten years ago Kafanchan, Nigeria was ground zero to a bloody rampage of Islamic extremism against the local Christians that left hundreds of churches burned to the ground. These acts of aggression were world news at the time and the one event for which the region was known…until recently. This August, Christ for all Nations held a Gospel Crusade in this very city. Aware of the volatility of the region and unsure of what awaited us there, we went, knowing that the heart of God is to seek and to save those that are lost. As we approached the city, still miles away, crowds were lining the streets and burst into joy at the sight of our caravan approaching. Finally, Evangelist Bonnke poked his head out of the sun roof of his SUV and the people were ecstatic. It was evident from that very moment that we had landed on some extremely rich soil and a mighty harvest would surely follow.

Paris On Fire

At the end of June, I ministered in Paris at the Christ for all Nations Fire Conference along side Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and Rev. Siegfried Tomazsewski. In the final service, more than 6,000 people packed out the “Palais des Congrés de l’Est Parisien” where the meetings were held. Many wonderful testimonies of healings and hundreds of salvations and an outpouring of Holy Spirit power, were the highlights of the meetings.

Conclusion of Amazon Crusade

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Sep 05, 2008  /     Posted from Calgary Canada  /     0 Comment

As we pulled up to the stadium we could see that it was filled to capacity and hundreds of people were standing outside wishing to get in. The venue, reminiscent of a baseball stadium, could potentially seat 50,000 people if all the grass on the sports field was used for seating. Unfortunately, the city authorities restricted us from using the field to seat people, so the bleachers, which could accommodate 25,000 people standing were completely filled.

The platform, which was set up in the best position for everyone to see, had about 200 yards between it and the nearest person. I would say a line, wait for the interpreter to interpret, then wait for the sound to reach the people then wait to hear their response. Because of the distance, I could not see the expression on one single face. It was a first time experience.

Catching Up

Much has happened since I wrote last. With almost constant travel and many new adventures, it has been difficult to make the time to blog. I am now in Calgary, Canada and will be posting several “catch up” blogs with pictures and reports of the most all that has happened in the last several weeks. I hope you are blessed by all that God is doing around the world.
