Favorite quote, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

► PROPHETIC WORSHIP AND INTERCESSION - Mike and Leslea Fargnoli
Mike and Leslea Fargnoli are graduates of Christ of the Nations and have been in ministry for 30 years. Their hunger and passion for leading people into the Presence of God through worship and prayer is what brought them to Western North Carolina believing this region is ripe for Revival and the next great move of God.
It is our desire to create an atmosphere through worship that will allow Holy Spirit to rest on us. Thus, allowing Him to speak to us and to pray accordingly for our region, nation and church and church family.
We believe that agreement is crucial which is why we encourage people to pray out loud so we can agree with them.
When we worship, we are agreeing with who God is while intercession and praying is agreeing with what God promised to do.
It is also our desire to see people free in worship and prophetic and spontaneous song. There is power in singing scripture and our prayers to God.
