Hello Fiery Remnant!

What a great opportunity we have to minister to the Lord individually and corporately. Out of that time, we have an increased awareness of those around us and we're able to minister to each other more effectively. There isn't a set formula so that makes each individual and ministry unique. We love that diversity! Last month we hosted a bonfire Burn. We intentionally did a shorter musical worship segment so we could invest time relationally with those plowing with us. Authentic relationships are so important to us as is our relationship with Jesus. What was intended to be only a few hours ended up stretching out over eight hours. We love operating in the overflow!!! We pray that's a prophetic sign of what's to come... 

What's coming up:

May 19th - Burn 24-7 Raleigh (Apex, NC) The Thorsby Band will be bringing a collaborative full band from some of our Burn crew to represent Burn 24-7 New Bern. We'll lead a set at 6pm. We would love for you to join us for our set or just come for the whole 12 hours if you're feeling adventurous! This is also a regional gathering for Awaken The Dawn and the ATD crew will be leading from 7-9pm.

Jun 20th-24th - Kingdom Culture Conference (Redding, CA) Some of our Burn Directors are gathering at this conference for additional training with Bethel leaders and a live recording!!! We'll also be gathering at Sean Feucht's house for a Directors gathering Saturday for those who can attend in lieu of a Global Summit this year. This tribe operates as a family and it's quite refreshing. We're hoping to catch a regular service on Sunday to get a taste of their Sunday culture if flights allow. Please pray for those attending to get blasted with vision for the coming season(s). Michael & Sara will be attending to represent BNB. Please pray for flights, finances, & childcare to work out.

Jun 24th-Jul 1st - Hillside Intensive (Raleigh, NC) Are you willing to invest one week of your life to get trained up in areas that you're passionate about? Consider jumping in with these guys to partner with those who are like-minded! We would love to see a few worship leaders there to represent Burn 24-7 New Bern and bring back fresh fire!

Sep 27th-29th - ATD Tent America (Raleigh, NC) - Please mark your calendars and make every effort to engage with this. In 2017 we gathered 50+ tents representing every state on the National Mall in DC, with thousands of people lifting up an incense of praise throughout the extended weekend. In 2018, we're raising a tent in the capital of every state. More details to come...

Thorsby Band (Michael & Sara Thorsby) - The Thorsby Band is ridiculously ready to release some new music! We need your help! Some of the spontaneous tracks we recorded at Barton College with Jordan Lane, Derrick Stalnaker & James Berry are currently being tweaked, mixed and mastered at PureMix Studios. We'll also be working with Disc Makers and CDBaby again for post-production and promo stuff to share with the world! We've launched a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the immediate expenses while also giving the opportunity for others to sow into the larger vision of TJ's. The Thorsby Band has primarily funded the vision, mission and all branches of TJ's in the past (including ministry branches like Burn 24-7 New Bern).

Fiery Remnant Ministries - We're in the process of separating some of the ministry branches of TJ's (including Burn 24-7 New Bern) to our recently formed hub called Fiery Remnant Ministries. The website is still under construction as we attempt to give language to what we're doing while also tweaking the bylaws as part of the process of establishing it as a 501(c)3. We've established our accountability/advisory board, our operational board and we already have our EIN. We're working through bylaws and other governing docs in hopes to finalize by the end of June. We're just "preparing the fields for rain!" These shifts will allow us to accept tax-deductible donations for ministry-specific portions of our mission, which will reduce the burden on TJ's as well as build structure for anticipated future growth. We welcome your prayers for clarity, financial provision and all the behind-the-scenes logistics taking place to establish this ministry with excellence!

Venue (Next potential TJ's CAVE location that could host Burn 24-7 New Bern) - One of the preferred venues we were pursuing/negotiating revealed some extensive roof damage after the last snow storm. That was a blessing in disguise to find out BEFORE signing a lease to avoid costly repairs while sitting idle. They are still working on that particular property as they are exploring their potential tenant options to maximize rent. We are still very interested and just waiting to see how that pans out. We have our eye on a few others options but we're not in a rush since we're currently short on both money and time in this season. TJ's hosting Fiery Remnant Ministries (including Burn 24-7 New Bern) would save a ton of resources but we're also considering two separate locations if the larger building/neutral location doesn't work out. We would love to be in a facility by July of 2018 for TJ's and FRM/BNB/C247 but we'll see what happens...

If you're spending extended time in prayer and/or worship individually or corporately for at least one hour, we encourage you to log that time by signing up on Craven24Seven so we can get a visual of the coverage in our area. Sign up HERE! We're more powerful together!!! Engage with us on our Craven24Seven facebook page to help spread the word! We've had people sign up here and there throughout the last few years but we're looking for some consistent prayer warriors to rise up. We've had months where we covered 1,000 hours over a 40 day time span but many months where it's just a few of us covering 20-30 hours per month total. Every hour makes a difference so we appreciate those that are willing to commit!
