This biblical principle is illustrated in How to Build a Winning Team along with steps that will equip you to apply your gifts as part of a healthy body of individuals with varied talents.
Many Christians fail to reach their potential because they try to go it alone or because their counselors and co-workers lack the breadth and scope of abilities and experience required to fulfill the vision. Let Mark Virkler show you how to determine:
|What assistance you need from others|
|Who the gifted individuals are with the required gifts|
|How to effectively engage as a team with those talented people|

Title: Support for Communion With God Partners
As Communion With God Ministries and Christian Leadership University continue to grow we are developing additional resources to support those who participate in our ministry as students, alumni, Certified Facilitators, Personal Spiritual Trainers, Lamad Bible schools as well as other roles.
Jerry Wright began his career in private education in 1994 and has held director and vice president roles with some of the largest and most respected training and educational companies in the US and internationally. Drawing on his experience in marketing and best practices for educational organizations, Jerry has already been in communication with a cross-section of individuals to identify areas of opportunity and expertise that can be leveraged for the greater success of our network. Some of the specific areas being evaluated include:
Collaborating with us on our website redesign to make sure we have the right information easily accessible for new and experienced visitors.
Empowering our Lamad Learning Centers, Certified Facilitators and Personal Spiritual Trainers with the visibility and support necessary to connect with students who aspire to bring the voice of God to their Christian educational experience.
Developing communications systems that provide more timely and targeted information allowing us to meet the needs of our students and customers.
Promoting our educational courses and materials, building awareness and value of Communion With God Ministries and Christian Leadership University.
It is a wonderful blessing to receive the feedback that is so frequently directed our way from our students and alumni. There are so many testimonies indicating how God is speaking to our students, drawing them closer to Him and equipping them to minister His love to others as a result of the life-changing intimacy with the Holy Spirit that is cultivated through our studies.
Please stay in communication with us and with Jerry as we continue to assist each other in our development of knowledge, wisdom and skills that build us individually and collectively in the Kingdom of God.

My Chance to Say Thank You to the Catholic Church Mark Virkler
You may recall from my testimony that it was two Jesuit priests, Dennis and Matt Lynn, who taught me two of the four keys to hearing Gods voice. Well, I finally was given the opportunity to say thank you to the Catholic Church for this wonderful gift.
During June, I was invited to Taiwan to speak at the Fu Jen Catholic University for a full day on Christian Dream Interpretation. What an honor! The first university ever to ask me to teach on dream interpretation, and it was Catholic.
I began the presentation by sharing the story of Dennis and Matt Lynn and the gift they provided to me which was so foundational in allowing me to step into intimacy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I thanked them for the precious gift of these two Jesuit priests as well as for the honor of allowing a Protestant minister to speak at their university.
The Lord anointed our workshop as I taught the principles of dream interpretation and we interpreted four dreams live through a Chinese translator, and into another culture. Gods grace was present and the messages in the dreams were profound and healing to the hearts of those who came to the front and allowed us to explore their dreams before about 200 professors and students.
God is doing wonderful things in the world today! Lets all take our part in sharing these powerful truths with those who are hungry.

Chicago Seminar Report: Korean Outreach
Mark taught his How to Hear Gods Voice seminar through a translator at the Korean Wagner Leadership Institute in Illinois last month as well. (Check out the group photo here!)
God moved mightily and all of the students learned to see His vision and hear His voice through two-way journaling. Now theyre equipped and are preparing to take this message of intimacy with Jesus and share it among the Korean community in Chicago.
Thank You, God, for what You are doing in the earth today!
Lord, what are You saying to me right now in my present situation?
Stay focused. Its so easy to get distracted by what Ive called others to. I have called you and am preparing you for a specific work. You have many talents and various experiences over the years that will one day soon begin to come together. Do not lean on your own understanding but inquire of Me and seek Me with all your heart and the path you are to take will appear before you!
Lord, why does this statement resonate with me; How do we prepare for the new opportunity, the unexpected opening? We listen to the Spirit and remain pliable and open.
My child, this statement resonates with you as I have spoken those words to you many times in your situation. Listen to the Spirit, stay faithful and remain pliable and open! I am the God of the unexpected, the over and above, the God who gives you the secret petitions of your heart. Do not lose heart or become discouraged, I am faithful and I will bring it to pass!
Lord, what do You want to say to me regarding my finances?
My child, I have blessed you so much; if you never see another reward or blessing you will have received more than most people will ever seeYou have freely received so that you can freely give. There are many opportunities to give without even leaving your environment. Look up and look around you, do you see the needs? The lonely housewife, the fearful neighbour, the neglected children? The needs are great, however not greater than My sufficiency.
Look to Me and I will open your eyes to see the needs, open your heart to Me and I will fill it for others. I desire to make you a reservoir that flows freelythat gives readily without prejudice or limitations. I am a good God and desire for all My children to experience My goodnesswill you allow My goodness to flow from you?
I am the same yesterday, today and foreverMy principles never change; you can either work for yourself and trust that things will work out or you can work for Me and know that with certainty, that things always work together for those who love Me and are called according to My purposes.
Put Me first and you will never be disappointed or be put to shame! Dont draw backif you can dream it I can achieve it through you! Test Me in your giving, not just financial giving but giving of yourselfIll never lead you where My grace cannot keep youI have a plan and a future for you and the best is yet to come!
Lord, what do You want to say to me concerning my talents and abilities?
These are the talents you have become comfortable with and operate with ease, however, there are other talents that I desire to entrust you with. You limit yourself by choosing to take on tasks and activities that flow through your natural talents; availability is the secret to power of attraction. As you make yourself available I can trust you with opportunities that appear to be beyond your capacity, its through these types of activities that allow you to experience My strength and capacity. Dont judge a task by your limited ability but rather by My will for you in any given situation.
Lord, how should I pray?
My child, My grace is at work in you and around you even when things dont make sense. Its My grace that allows evil and good to grow up together. Theres coming a day when the evil will be exposed for what it is. Until then I show the world My love and grace by demonstrations of your life and conduct.
Its My desire to use you to show My marvelous works I am not holding back. You are not looking and expecting Me to show up. I am calling you to take a stand that requires courage and boldness and as you do My grace will flow through and into the situations you are praying for.
Stop settling for mediocrity; use childlike faith when praying for people and the situations in their lives that seem impossible. All things are possible to those who believe. All you need to do is ask and Ill be faithful to answer!
|Karyn asked the Lord some great questions, now you should do the same! Ask Him about your finances, your talents, your prayer life and get inspired with His fresh revelation and personal encouragement for you, for now.|

God Speaks Through a Tattoo??? Robert Davidson, Baraboo House Church
I have used your materials in my House Church and elsewhere, and relied heavily on your teachings when counseling believers to hear God. This week, for the first time, God spoke to me through a brand new medium, and Im anxious to share it with you.
First, a little background on my situation. My beloved wife, Rachel, died from cancer in February. We received a word of knowledge in October that the Lord was going to call her home, and that was affirmed by a similar word of knowledge in December. In the latter word, God told me, After your pain subsides you will do great things for Me. After four months my pain is subsiding, and I have been praying fervently for direction and revelation into the great things.
This is what happened: In a local McDonalds restaurant a young woman waited on me at the counter. She had tattooed writing on her right forearm below the elbow. I noticed it and asked her what it said. She put her arm forward and quoted the saying, Never let your memories get bigger than your dreams.
I was awestruck. This was God-directed to me. God spoke! Immediately I saw the extension and application: Never let your memories of Rachel get bigger than your dreams of the future. It wasnt until a few hours later that I realized God had spoken through a tattoo!
Would You Give Us Some Link Love?
Every day we receive calls and emails in our office from people saying, Where have you been? Christian Leadership University is exactly what I have been longing for!
