Other State-Side

The Apostle Paul said that God “gave some to be prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works for service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” 

Most of our ministry in the United States is focused on preparing God’s people – in other words, we actively labor to encourage renewal in local congregations and maturity in individual believers.  Through retreats, revivals, seminars, concerts, and participation regional and national conferences, our ministers encourage U.S.believers to stand strong for Christ and join Him in His work in the world.

Christian World Missions evangelists and worship leaders (teams or individuals):

  • Lee Ann Williamson  and Lori Smith  work together or individually to offer a powerful experience in worship, preaching, and/or teaching in a number of different settings.
  • All of our ministers are also available on an individual basis for preaching and teaching.  Lee Ann and Lori are also available to lead worship, either individually or as a team.

Local Church Ministry Offerings:
(Click here for a booklet of our program offerings or contact us with your specific theme.)

Revivals:  In the old days, many local churches scheduled fall and spring revival meetings each year, with little expectation of a true move of God.  The CWM teams not only expect God to bring new life to local churches, they believe that in such a time as this, revival of the church is the crucial element if we have any hope of reaching the world for Christ, or seeing our nation repent and be saved from judgment.  After receiving an invitation, through prayer and communication with the pastor and lay leadership of each congregation, we bring timely messages that invoke the work and power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Women’s Retreats:  The Bible says that “in the Last Days, God will pour out His Spirit on all people, and both men and women will prophecy.”  Lee Ann and Lori want other women to walk in the fullness of God’s Spirit, just as they are experiencing.  Our women’s retreats include seasons of worship, prayer, reflection, preaching, and teaching, calling women to seek God and all that He has for them.  Working with small local groups and/or in our popular, regional retreats, we go beyond the rally celebration that characterizes many larger events and call women to offer their lives to the Lord as living sacrifices.  Many women have become Christians in our retreats, and others have received healing, deliverance, and a fresh call from God. Click here for information about our women’s retreats or other events.

The Potter’s Hand:  In March of 2000, for her 40th birthday, several friends joined together to give Lee Ann a certificate for pottery lessons.  She immediately fell in love with the craft, and began to sense a new opportunity for sharing the Gospel.  The next year, Grace & Gladness led their first Potter’s Hand retreat, with Lee Ann teaching Biblical truths while throwing pots on the wheel.  She has even been the featured artist for The Maker’s Market, an arts and crafts fair in North Mississippi, where she had the opportunity to share a simple Gospel message with thousands in a public arena.  Whether as an opportunity to reach unbelievers, or a challenge for Christians to grow in their faith, the Potter’s Hand is a powerful tool for proclaiming God’s Word.  Click here to view a brief segment of The Potter’s Hand.  

Concerts: Corporate worship through music has always been a vital part of the ministry of CWM.  Revelation 5:8 gives a picture of the four living creatures in heaven, each holding a harp (representing worship) and a golden bowl full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Lee Ann and Lori have been glorifying God through music for over 20 years and truly have a gift for creating a intimate setting for worship. Enjoy a sample from a 2011 Christmas concert.  O Come, O Come Emmanuel  “Be Born in Me…Christmas through the Eyes of Mary.”  If you would like to book the concert for your church or organization, contact us.  Click here for a clip from Be Born in Me.

In Concerts of Prayer, we combine traditional and contemporary worship music with various forms of prayer (silent, liturgical, small group, laying on of hands, etc.), usually directed around a specific theme (e.g., Intercession for India, Isaiah 6:1-9, 2 Kings 2).  These powerful worship services bring together local congregations and/or regional groups to break the powers of darkness and usher in the Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit.  We can tailor-make a Concert of Prayer for your purposes, or you can choose from one of our existing themes.
