He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.
We proclaim the kingdom of God, on earth as it is in heaven. Helping people experience and be transformed by the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit makes our heart beat. We have devoted our lives to see the people of God live in the fullness of their identity as lovers and beloveds, sons and daughters, and as a chosen people, a royal priesthood. We work to equip believers to realize their connectedness to each other and their full freedom, healing, and purpose in Christ.
What We Do
Writing and speaking | Songwriting, and worship leading | Relational ministry and discipleship
You will find us leading worship, teaching, and ministering in living rooms, bible studies, church services, conferences and retreats--hosting many of our own gatherings as well as partnering with other other church organizations and ministries. Adventurers at heart, traveling to minister to the body is exciting for us, but we also stay well-rooted at home in Colorado Springs where many of our favorite ministry moments happen around dinner tables and backyard fire pits. We enjoy being submitted to the care of pastors and operate The Blackthorn Project, our 501c3 nonprofit organization, under the oversight of a board of directors.
