Establishing Harvest Bases: A Modern-Day Mission Inspired by Acts 13 with Josh Lindquist

In Acts 13, we read about the Lord using the church in Antioch to send out Paul and Barnabas on one of the greatest missionary journeys of all time. This event marked a pivotal moment in the spread of Christianity and showcases the profound impact of a mission-focused community.

The Antioch Model

The church in Antioch serves as a powerful example of how a community, grounded in prayer and fasting, can be used by God to advance His kingdom. By being receptive to the Holy Spirit, the Antioch church played a crucial role in spreading the Gospel far and wide.

Scripture Reference:

  • Acts 13:2-3: “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.”

Modern-Day Harvest Bases

Today, we believe there are many places where God is establishing bases like Antioch to advance His kingdom on earth. These “Harvest Bases” are spiritual strongholds dedicated to prayer, worship, and mission work. They are crucial in promoting revival and making the Great Commission a tangible reality.

The Vision of Harvest Bases

The vision behind Harvest Bases is to create environments where believers are equipped and sent out to spread the Gospel. These bases are designed to be hubs of spiritual activity, where revival is ignited, and disciples are trained and empowered.

TTC led me out of darkness and into the love I’ve longed for my entire life, the love of JESUS.  They’ve taught me to love like Jesus by walking out my created purpose.  My Spirit has been healed, I am whole, because of their obedience to do God’s will.  They have introduced me to and welcomed me into a powerful tribe of women that love Jesus with their whole heart.  Women that strengthen, teach, support, and encourage one another with the power and authority given by the Holy Spirit.  I am eternally grateful for their ministry and humbled to be called family.
