hat an incredible time this is to be alive and a follower of Jesus! God is doing so many wonderful things in all the earth, including right here in Phoenix, AZ, where, for the past few months, over 100 people per week are making decisions for Christ and being born again! We are experiencing a GREAT GRACE AWAKENING by both the teaching of God’s Word and then experiencing new realms of His Grace. Globally, including right here at CFTN, we are in the midst of the greatest WORSHIP REVIVAL in church history! The walls of RACIAL DIVISION are being torn down here at CFTN as people from over 100 nations gather every week for worship. It looks like heaven because of the multi-cultural congregation at a CFTN service! This is also the time for WOMEN TO BE FREED to be and do everything God ever created them for, including being in leadership roles in the church. We began to progressively pray, plan and point our ministry efforts towards YOUNG PEOPLE several years ago and now we are a MULTI-GENERATIONAL church. It’s impossible for people to truly find their way to God and His will for their lives without SUPERNATURAL SIGNS! SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES are the calling card of heaven to mankind. So many tremendous testimonies of healing and miracles are happening here at CFTN. God is AWAKENING His people to their Kingdom DREAMS and DESTINIES in this hour of APOSTOLIC IMPARTATION! It’s time for your winter of WONDERS and BREAKTHROUGH!

Dr. Michael and Mary Maiden are the founders and lead
