We’re delighted to announce that God is expanding our reach through a new Associate Director, Nate Oyloe. Welcome Nate, we’re praising God for you and your call to join Door of Hope!
Here’s Nate’s message to you...
Almost 20 years ago, the Lord spoke to my heart. “Son, raise up a generation in My love and in My power — a generation like Moses who will lead the Church out of her Egypts.”
At the time, I didn’t know why God was calling me to raise up a generation, and didn’t know how to do it. Over the years, the Lord has been faithful to answer those questions.
The next generation will lead every sphere of life. Therefore, what they believe about the image of God is paramount to their sense of being human and part of God’s created order. Without a biblical understanding of the image of God and our being made in His image, the next generation—and society as we know it—will unravel. The fact that we are created in God’s image is solid ground for every generation.
Early in my recovery, I connected with the Twin Cities prayer movement where I found people of faith who encouraged me to spend extended times in prayer and in God’s Word. They taught me how to study the Bible and how to receive the revelation of the Father’s heart found in the Bible.
As I saw the fruit of a dynamic prayer life, I began to use this strategy in my work with young adults. The fruit was astounding. The Lord granted speedy healing and provision to those crying out to Him (Luke 18:8). I saw that God is raising up a generation in His love and power by revealing His love and power through prayer.
Now, my calling is clear: I am to help raise up a generation in God’s love and power, through prayer and worship while standing for the truth of God’s image.
As Associate Director, I will be developing programming and working with men, and with college-aged and 20-somethings. I will also lead an intercessory prayer team to pray for Door of Hope, our clients, and the abused and traumatized in our city, state and world.
Your prayers and financial support are essential to the work God has called us to accomplish. Thank you.
I look forward to getting to know many of you this year!
