To see a network of radically transformed people aggressively discovering their Spiritual Gifts and changing their world
Helping people discover God’s purpose in the gifted areas of His presence in their lives!
– PRESENCE (Holy Spirit, Kingdom, Righteousness, Peace, Joy)
Demonstrated by an encounter with Jesus Christ at the cross of calvary to discover spiritual gifts through submitting to God (living sacrifice), meditating on His Word (mind renewal), listening to the Holy Spirit (discerning), becoming like Christ (knowing His perfect will – love). and pursuing His passion (spiritual gifts – power) to help others.
– PERSONALITY (Caring, Friendships, Networking, Sharing stories)
Demonstrated by developing spiritual disciplines through devotions, scriptural meditations, making friends, networking, sharing resources, sharing our stories, praying, and learning from one another
– PROVIDENCE (Loving, Believing, Meeting needs, Doing Ministry)
Demonstrated by identifying and serving the needs in our community, supporting education, promoting socio-economic activities, pursuing social justice to transform lives
– POWER (Sacrifice, Humble, Obedient, Resilient, Innovating, Serving, Discipling)
Demonstrated by cultivating spiritual fruit (love), and obedience to God’s prophetic call to participate in planting multiplying churches by mentoring young leaders here and abroad in the fields of education, business, economics, social justice, culture, ethnic networks, governments, and religion.

Discovery Ministries exist to invite others to discover God through Repentance, Worship, Thanksgiving, Praises, Intercessions, Petitions, Prayers, Spiritual warfare, Biblical Meditations, and Obedience to the Holy Spirit in Proclaiming Jesus Christ and Him Crucified to the ends of the earth! (I Peter 2:9)
Next year by this time we would have established twelve (12) discovery groups with 12 active leaders and 150 members participating in praise and worship conferences in various places in Philadelphia and beyond where people can find healing, build relationships and become empowered to pursue their dreams.
Imagine a place where you go as a visitor and you know you are welcomed because immediately you arrive, someone greets you with a smiling face, gives you a warm handshake, introduces you to friends and family invites you to a cup of coffee, or juice or a meal. Everything you see and hear in the building looks inviting, you meet people of diverse cultures, different generations, you hear music that warms your heart and people are interested to know you and to hear your story.
Imagine that this kind of movement is not only welcoming people just as they are, but that members intentionally go outside the walls of their building looking for hurting and broken people, stressed out looking for answers, to help them find healing, peace, and purpose in their lives.
Imagine this movement is not only accepting all people and helping those in need, but also developing leaders who are transforming their communities spiritually, socially, and economically
Imagine that this kind of movement is also multiplying itself by making disciples of Jesus Christ and sending them out to plant other movements in other communities here and abroad where the gospel of Jesus Christ is most needed, among both the Jewish and Gentile Unreached places on the earth. (Matthew 24:14)
Imagine that this kind of church is in your community.
