Bringing the Living Word to those living in the world

Mission

"To bring the Living Word to those living in the world" Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel message, the Good News of Jesus Christ, to all who will listen. To proclaim His truth and word not only to the lost, but also to the Church which needs to understand and take to heart prophecy, apologetics and sound biblical teaching. "The fire shall ever be burning... it shall never go out." Our mandate is to stand like our namesake... as a Watchfire in these end times. We stand with the fire of the Holy Spirit upon the altar of our heart, with the charge that it shall never go out (Leviticus 6:13). We stand as Watchmen on the wall, ready to sound the alarm, and always being a light, preparing the Church and this world for what is...and what is to come

Life is filled with many challenges, difficulties, and obstacles where having biblical direction and a guide can mean all the difference. From navigating through life situations, relationships, work/life balance, to just finding a sense of purpose... Biblical Life Coaching can be the key to go from where you are, to where you hope to be!

Using sound biblical doctrine, along with years of experience and training, we meet you where you are... to walk with you and to bring scriptural wisdom and direction into your journey. Here are a few things that you can expect with Biblical Life Coaching:
- We work with you as a guide to take you from where you are, to where you hope to be.
- We work with you to develop realistic and achievable goals, and to build skills for success.
- Working together we establish biblical strategies to overcome obstacles and strongholds.
- Every plan, every challenge, every step is treated as unique. We do not offer cookie-cutter programs.

Working in active ministry places you on the front lines of spiritual warfare in the Church, and within the lives of those we serve. Serving in this capacity means you are not working a regular 9-5 job and at any moment you can find yourself dealing with performing hospital visits, counseling congregants, managing end of life issues for families, delivering sermons, evangelizing, or just answering questions that so many ask you every day, etc...

Having a safe space and a confidential ear to listen can be priceless in helping you manage the stressors of ministry and in maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Pastoral Counseling & coaching with Watchfire Ministries provides such a place, and program, where seasoned ministers provide guidance, can serve as counselors, and can coach you scripturally in strategy and encouragement.

There are so many things we face in life... and sometimes those things are evil, dark, and can appear more powerful than us. Whether it is addiction, anxiety, health issues, or possibly outright demonization, there is freedom and DELIVERANCE in Jesus Christ!

There are ministries out there that will perform exorcisms and elaborate rituals which seldom work, and which can take time that keeps people trapped in their disease, depression, or oppression.

While exorcism is sometimes necessary, Watchfire does not rely on rituals and programmed performances... but solely upon Biblical practices and prescriptions to provide freedom NOW!

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
