There is a call going out in the earth today.  It rings in my own city of Spokane just as clearly as it rings in New York City or London, Amsterdam or Baghdad.  "Come follow me."  It's the call of Jesus to His church, including those who don't even know they're a part of it yet!  As we respond to this call there can be a subtle whisper in our minds…

As our team has been learning and growing, it's become clear that it's time to "go public."  We haven't been hiding, by any means, since we've been meeting in a rented facility at 303 W.
