That's us in 2012 because 2012 was a pretty special new season for us! That's Jason, Elizabeth, and I, with my 2 dogs Snowie and Trixie, who are family to us. It's not hard to figure out who's who!
ABOUT ME & My family
First and foremost, God. Without Jesus, we would not be who we are not even a family to begin with.
God is supernatural. And I love the supernatural!
I cast out demons, and pray for the sick to be healed because I believe that is the basic ministry of any disciple of Jesus as we bring God's kingdom into the kingdoms of this world. Sometimes, when the need arises, God empowers me to move in the gifts of deliverance with the gifts of faith, healings coupled with word of knowledge and prophecy. Having preached in many different nations all over Asia and also in America; in churches, at Youth, Pastors & Women Conferences and Gospel rallies to passionately stir up the call of God in men and women to rise up to their roles in the body of Christ, I am especially passionate to see young people grow to become true disciples of Jesus Christ. To that end, the vision of Youth TransformNations(YTN) was birthed in 2009; a platform with a heart for intergenerational unity where spiritual fathers walk with the next generation to fulfil their God-given callings and bring the Kingdom of God into the 7 gates of the Arts, Business, Communications and Media, Divine Institutions, Education, Family and Government.
Together with Jason and other like-minded fellow sojourners journeying together, we founded Missional Church Communities Network(MCCN) which is a relational network of like-minded church communities making disciples who make disciples and multiplying community-based churches.
For 10 years as a Regional Director for CFAN(Christ for all Nations, Reinhard Bonnke ministries) in Asia, I have worked alongside all kinds of churches from all denominations and in different parts of the world for city-wide harvest events. After working with pastors from mega churches, small churches, from traditional to charismatic-type churches, Methodists, Anglicans, Lutherans, Presbyterians, AG, Independent etc etc... Jason and I felt very burdened to see and experience church the way the Bible described and the way the early disciples experienced; without the encumbrances of lifeless legal structures, worldly marketing ploys, programs, events and man-made systems that manage people.
I always hear this said in defence of the church - "God loves His Church despite all the wrong/bad things we see". Well, my reply to this: "If you love your son and he is doing drugs, will you desire that he stop doing drugs? Well, God loves His Church so much and desire to see change in His church!"
So in 2012, upon resigning from my position as a ministry director in CfaN after 10 years, and also stepping out of our former church where we were involved in various leadership roles for almost 20 years, we started organic church communities (visit www.mccnresources.org), by simply discipling pre-believers into the Kingdom of God.
We wanted to stay true to the simple structure of the Kingdom DNA - (1st greatest commandment)of loving God and walking in obedience to the Word of God, (2nd greatest commandment) strong community relationships and (what we commonly call "The Great Commission in Matt 28:19-20) a missional heart of going and being the church where the lost are. This, I have found this to be true to the basic core and foundational expression of the Kingdom of God.
In recent years, my main passion and focus has been on training others/churches/ministries through what I call “4:11 Ministries” equipping sessions - because only through the true expressions of gifts of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd, Teacher according to Eph 4:11 in organic (“organic” in the sense of the life-giving, creative nature of God; in contrast to inorganic, synthetic, man-made religiosity) kingdom ways, can the church of Jesus Christ truly come to full maturity.
Jason, my husband is a wonderful bible teacher and gifted online entrepreneur (check out his website jasontayonline.com) who seeks to see the Kingdom of God expand through sustainable businesses and trains and empowers others to do so.
Jason, my daughter Elizabeth and I are currently based in Perth, Australia. (Due to transitional challenges, we have to foster Snowie and Trixie to a loving family for almost a year. I hope to reunite with Snowie and Trixie soon! They are our truly beloved missional dogs and they have their stories to tell too!)
