Hello! We live in a turbulent time with all sorts of people screaming that their opinion is the only one that counts; they alone know what is proper and valid. Others demand you agree with them or condemn you as stupid or evil. So who can you talk to about spiritual matters?
How about talking with me? Although I grew up "going to church," I had a lot of questions about what I heard "in church" vs. what I saw and experienced. I was taught in Sunday School that God spoke to people face to face. However, an intimate relationship seemed very different from the formal, sometimes boring church services I attended. Growing up, the Church appeared to me to be a place of social obligations rather than a center of renewal or supernatural marvels. Why [I wondered] doesn't God talk to people directly today? Where were the adventures and joys the people of the Bible experienced? I didn't know anyone I could discuss my questions with. So when I was about thirteen, I decided God was a fake--like the Easter Bunny.
Then just before I left for college, I had a supernatural encounter with God. I discovered God is real and wants to share His love and thoughts with His children! After accepting Jesus, I developed a passion for people to know how much God desired to speak to them and for the Church to awaken to a new level of the supernatural life and to realize what it meant to be the beautiful, supernatural bride of Christ. My adventures with God have taken me to the Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the People's Republic of China, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Spain, and Croatia to strengthen, mature, and encourage fellow believers. I have spoken at women's conferences, to small groups, and at various pastoral training conferences throughout the years. These adventures with Jesus have not always been easy or fun, but they all work to bring me closer to Him.
As a young believer, I was blessed with Godly leaders who helped me mature as a believer and began teaching me about what 1 Corinthians 12 called "spiritual gifts." However, several unusual events indicated God had called me into prophetic ministry. At the time, I didn't realize prophetic ministry was controversial. However, I did know this: I could not find a mature prophet who could mentor or train me concerning prophetic ministry.
Though I desired to honor God in all my actions, my immaturity led me to make mistakes as I sought to obey God's call. I rejoiced when God opened the doors for me to receive "basic prophetic training" at Christian International under the leadership of Bishop Bill Hamon. In addition to my training at CI, I obtained Master's degrees in Theology and Divinity and my Doctoral degrees in Ministry and Theology. Recently I also attended the School of the Prophets at Christian International in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, for a good "polishing."
In 1976 I married Michael Watkins [we are a bi-centennial couple]. We have three children [two girls and a son]. In 1996 our family moved to Spartanburg, South Carolina, where we joined Evangel Cathedral. I became a licensed minister as part of Evangel Fellowship International in 1998. As part of EFI, I was privileged to travel and teach prophetically throughout parts of Europe, including lands formerly behind the Iron Curtain. A family health crisis led me away from active ministry for about ten years, yet those difficult years stretched and transformed my life. I have now returned to public ministry under the "Prophet's Call/Redivivus Ministry" banner.
The last several years have been years of significant change. In my home church, I served two years as the "go-fer" for the administrator during the transition of Evangel Cathedral of Spartanburg into Free Chapel Spartanburg. During these two years, I finished the research for my first book and obtained my ministerial license for The Prophet's Call Ministry from Christian International, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida[I am also certified to teach on Spiritual Gifts by CI]. My husband Michael is now also a licensed minister under CI. [We are also members of the Christian International Apostolic Network and Visionary Partners to CI.]
