Todd & Jessa Bentley
Todd and Jessa Bentley travel the world through their evangelistic ministry Fresh Fire USA. They endeavor to lead the lost into the miraculous, to be delivered and set free, and launched into the reality of intimate relationship with Jesus.
They are also the senior visionary leaders of The Secret Place Church. Their vision for their local church is to be an apostolic model church that doesn't revolve around a single person. Utilizing the local body of Christ, the church will give each member the opportunity to use, and share their spiritual gifts regularly.
Their passion in life and ministry to the nations is souls and to see others experience the transferable, tangible anointing of the Holy Spirit. God releases His presence and power through them in a mighty way, confirming that Jesus still heals every sickness and disease.
They believe the Body of Christ needs to be strengthened and encouraged, therefore they minister prophetically, corporately and personally as well as bring forth the word of God with the power and demonstration of the Spirit-God confirming His word with signs and wonders following. God has released an increase of the healing anointing. The blind see, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and growths dissolve as Jesus heals every sickness and disease.
Darryn has been in full time ministry for nearly 30 years. Having traveled the globe with many world renown ministries he has had the opportunity to train, and receive different ministry gifts according to the giftings of those he ministered with.
Having been in full time worship ministry for so many years, God started branching him out to further his calling in teaching and Pastoral gifts. When asked to take on the Pastoral role of The Secret Place Church, it was a no-brainer, yet it was something he would have absolutely said NO to even just a few years ago!
Darryn's understanding of the pastoral role is different. Pastoring Gods people doesn't mean always mean being the teacher/preacher. Rather, Pastoring a congregation is simply leading them corporately into what The Lord is calling them as a congregation, and with an apostolic model church, we have many people who can share in the teaching gifts, and he can simply steer the ship according to what I feel The Lord directing us to do.
