About This Event
In times of difficulty, God has promised that He will establish "pockets of mercy" as spiritual and natural oases, like Goshen during the days of Joseph (Gen. 47:27). The people of Goshen experienced growth and multiplication from the Lord on all they possessed; their land was called "the best" in all of Egypt (Gen. 47:6). These regions are ones that drip with the abundance of the Lord and are fruitfully blessed in all manners of life (Ps. 65:13). These oases therefore become places where natural crops flourish, businesses thrive, families sing for joy, and individuals live with divine purpose.
In our day, God is moving the hearts of many to help establish these pockets of mercy that serve as a blessed dwelling place for people in times of trouble, and a resting place for the Lord (Ps. 132: 5). These individuals, companies, and families are seeking the blueprints from God on how to establish oases in accordance with Psalm 107:35, which says, "He [the Lord] turns a wilderness into pools of water, and dry land into water springs . . . that they may establish a city for a dwelling place, and sow fields and plant vineyards, that they may yield a fruitful harvest. He also blesses them and they greatly multiply."
Strategy in Action | Learn How to Establish a Place of Refuge
At this seminar, hear what God has said about such places and how He is encouraging others to build them before His return. Listen to what others are doing in their local areas and discover the important role these oases will play in the end times. This event will spotlight individual people who are building with this vision in their homes, companies, and cities. We will also provide end-time teachings, putting them into a Biblical context with modern application. In addition, there will be several networking opportunities for attendees to encourage and connect with like-minded people.

Panelists and Spotlights
Terry Leverett | Social Entrepreneur
Terry Leverett is the founder of Prepare the Way, LLC. Living in Dallas in 1992, he read a book that made him aware that should a disaster happen, he would be a sitting duck, ignorant, and stuck in the middle of 5 million people going nuts. He didn't know how to live without going to the store for groceries, turning on the tap for water, or flipping a switch for lights. That struck him deep in his gut and got him started looking for answers!
Terry and his wife, Grace, spent the next 20 years learning how to live a life of dignity in adverse situations. Along the way, he operated an independent energy business from 1997-2000, manufacturing, designing, and installing independent alternative energy systems. He's acquired tools, knowledge, and supplies to adapt. To give you an idea, he currently has the ability to take care of 10 people for up to 3 1/2 years at a high level of preparedness. Terry learned and teaches that the more options you provide for yourself, the better off you are. His current goal is to help those serious and willing to eliminate fear of the future, and guide them with information and tested products to make their home ready when it counts! He started and directed a food ministry called Food Mission USA from January 2001 until March 2006, regularly supplying free food to over 300 ministries over a four state region. The course for the remainder of his life was set by a dramatic vision from the Lord on March 22, 2001.
