The Lord has spoken very clearly to our team that we are to lead out in Worship as we pioneer YWAM - Virginia Beach. Another theme the Lord has spoken to us is serving the local churches and ministries. Along with these two themes we are to lead out in the community through evangelism. God is also leading us to make disciples, by training, equipping and sending them out to fulfil their call and accomplishing the great commission. We have seen communities transformed through prophetic evangelism/worship and believe it to be possible in Virginia Beach.
''But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.'' John 4:23-24

- Local Ministry
Prophetic worship is a trending activity that combines spontaneous music, dance, and other art forms to present a “new” word from God. The word prophetic in this context means “hearing God in your heart and communicating what He says.” To prophesy is to speak (or sing) by “inspiration.” Sometimes the music and lyrics during a prophetic worship service are said to be “the song of the Lord,” because of the belief that the musicians and leaders were “inspired” to speak God’s word—in the same way that the Old Testament prophets were.

Whether it’s teaching the gospel, working on a community project, or praying for the town or city, we will guide you every step of the way, equipping you to impact a neighborhood.
