WHO WE ARE
We are a spiritual army of men, women, and children equipped to heal the sick, make disciples, and set the captives free.
We play offense, not just defense. We take ground spiritually, not just retain ground.
We are not tossed about by every wind of doctrine, we are growing into sons of God, maturing into Christ.
Below are two excerpts from the book Destiny Defeated Death, a biography on David and Patricia Lage, the founders of Holy Spirit Led Ministries
God began to reveal the call on Dave's life shortly after the boy's fourth birthday.
The young lad watched intently as God communicated to him through an open-eyed vision. He looked on as Grandma Jo cupped his tiny face in her hands. She leaned forward in the vision and gazed deeply into his eyes. It seemed she had bypassed his physical being and stared directly into the depths of his spirit.
Giant tears welled up in her eyes. As she spoke they spilled over onto her cheeks. She declared with full assurance that one day he was going to be like John G. Lake. The smile adorning her face came from deep within. It seemed that her words were without question.
Just as quickly as the first scene faded another took its place. This time Dave found himself observing a futuristic vision. Both he and another person (a woman) were on stage. The two of them were speaking and ministering before a massive crowd of people. The multitude of faces seemed to spread out for as far as the eye could see.
At such a tender age, Dave did not know quite what to think of these visions. He simply watched them, knowing that God must have great plans for him.
She [Patricia] received a vision while in prayer. Both she and Dave were on stage ministering to a multitude of people. There seemed to be no distinction between where the crowd had begun and where it ended. Patty found herself overwhelmed by this vision. She had not expected it, nor had she came looking for it. Her time of prayer began with only one question for the Lord. She wanted to know with all certainty whether this was the man she was to marry. God, however, chose to confirm the marriage and give her a glimpse into their future. Interestingly enough, it was the same vision Dave experienced as a boy.
WHAT WE DO
Preach the Gospel.
Heal the Sick.
Equip the Saints.
David and Patricia Lage equip the saints cross-denominationally to heal the sick and bring deliverance through Jesus' authority. Many have prayed along with them to receive Jesus.
They do this through the healing services and equipping seminars, as well as electronically and in the marketplace.
Spiritual Growth & Mentorship
We value raising men and women into maturation in the Spirit. Our desire is to grow the body of Christ up into Christ.
Truth & Love
Speaking God’s truth out of the right heart, is a big part of growing up into Christ. Jesus is truth and love and we want to speak to help upbuild you in Christ, and set you free from what is holding you back.
Authority & Power
Authority directs unlimited power. We value teaching people to speak with authority and to release the power of God for supernatural God-honoring results.
Obedience & Determination
Following Jesus no matter what the cost. Acting on what He says in your heart and His Word. Not just starting out, but continuing in the word until the end.
Discernment is knowing the Shepherd's voice that leads to life and not calling the voice of another the Shepherd. It looks like rightly understanding scripture and setting people free.
We value keeping your word as an integral part of growing up in Christ and upbuilding the kingdom.
We value unity in the team. We see the unique part each team member brings and we want to honor that, as we learn from one other.

David’s grandmother was diagnosed with cancer and she slowly deteriorated throughout his childhood, when she finally breathed out her last breath. Patricia’s dad died of cancer, though she prayed for years for his healing.
The devil would pay for what he had done.
Together, they have a special passion to beat cancer and have ministered to many with cancer successfully.

As a result, precious people have come to Christ and many believers have been activated to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a demonstration of power. They have ministered to and equipped Protestant, Catholic, and Charismatic and mainline congregations across the nation.

SPIRITUALLY MOST IMPROVED PLAYER
David Lage would joke about "Most Improved Player" when ever someone made sustained leaps and bounds in their manifestion of Jesus.
Many of the people that became mighty were very hurting or broken to start with. These people are the good soil, who heard the word and did with it with a good and honest heart.
"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." - 1 Corinthians 26:29
