The call of God to be a minister is a treasure in an earthern vessel (2 Corinthians 4:7). Christ gave the gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher to His church, and we celebrate your unique giftings and role.
In the Heartland, we devote much of our ministry to ministers. We want to help you reach your full potential, so we partner with you in lasting friendships, spiritual refueling, ongoing education, and understanding the challenges that only a fellow minister can understand.
Christ urged us to pray for laborers to be sent into the harvest, so we are always looking for new ministers! If you feel the call of God on your life, let us walk with you on the path to receiving your credentials. We offer three levels of credentials — Local Church Ministers License, Minister’s License, and Ordination. We want to be your ministry family!

What is Encounter?
Encounter is a dramatic life-changing experience. The Bible gives us many examples of people who were transformed by their personal encounter with the Lord Jesus: the Samaritan woman (John 4:5-29), Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), the Gadarene demoniac (Matthew 8:28-34), and all the disciples of Christ. After an encounter, they were never the same again!
You may already be thinking of personal areas in your life or somene you know that would benefit by an encounter, or you may be in ministry and need to better understand how to assist others in becoming strong and vibrant believers, who display the splendor of the Almighty in all aspects of their lives.
It is our desire that every person who attends Encounterwill seize the opportunity to experience God. The results will be manifested in transformed lives — lives that are set free, emotionally and physically healed, restored, and released into their unique gifts, talents, abilities, purpose and identity.
Session consist of testimonies and teaching by individuals who have received visible, manifest change in their lives, through a series of engaging, intensive, and interactive experiences and personal ministry, while attending their own Encounter Weekend.
What participants say about the Encounter
The Father Heart of God — “Where the Father revealed His great love to me.”
Sexual Healing — “Where I was healed of a pervasive sense of shame.”
Forgiveness — “Where I was finally able to forgive and bless.”
Inner Healing — “Where God set me free from pain.”
Quartz Mountain Resort and Lodge — April 22 – 23, 2016
“Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
After a specially hectic season of ministry for Jesus’ disciples, He called them aside for a time of rest. At the Heartland 2014 Quadrennial Conference, our delegates voted to relaunch our Annual Care and Share Retreat for this same purpose. Our 2016 date and location is set, and we invite our ministers and their spouses to a relaxing time away from the constant call of the ministry. It’s time to make your reservation for this special weekend!

We are all aware and celebrate July 4th but do you know anything about Juneteenth? During the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on September 22, 1862, with an effective date of January 1, 1863. 1863. 1863. The declaration of freedom for every slave in all Confederate States was made in 1863. However, By 1865, there were an estimated 250,000 slaves in Texas. News of end of the war moved slowly and did not reach Texas until May 1865, and the Army of the Trans-Mississippi did not surrender until June 2. On June 18, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger arrived at Galveston Island with 2,000 federal troops to occupy Texas on behalf of the federal government. On June 19, standing on the balcony of Galveston's Ashton Villa, Granger read aloud the contents of "General Order No. 3", announcing the total emancipation of slaves:
