About the Global Apostolic Council for California
In August 2007 a group of international prayer leaders from Canada met with local prayer leaders in Hollywood and Los Angeles. As a result of that meeting the Global Apostolic Council for California was ultimately formed and this website created.
A year of preparation followed and in November 2008 a delegation of prayer leaders came to the largest American Film Festival in Santa Monica, CA to pray and intercede for the entertainment industry. 8 days of meetings, intercession and prayer and worship resulted in very positive feedback from Christian exhibitors at the American Film Festival.
"The Lord is calling His children to awaken. We have slumbered long enough. Now is the time to come together as one . . . for the Church to rise up in unity and reclaim that which the enemy has stolen from our Lord. Few areas are as key to this need for unity as represented by the entertainment industry, and Life Connections is wholeheartedly in support of GACC's efforts."
"God is calling those with "ears to hear" to come join him where he is working and he wants to unite the whole body in corporate unity under the Lordship of Jesus Christ."
"The Global Apostolic Council is a cutting edge ministry of trendsetters and entrepreneurs who want to open the gates of heaven to storm the gates of hell through fasting, prayer, and visitation. Their burning passion is to engage and empower the Church, through brilliant and creative media productions, to impact all avenues of the entertainment industry and affect the culture. It is my joy to endorse the GAC because my heart beats with the same vision for Hollywood!"
God is bringing about a fresh reformation and renaissance to Hollywood. He is raising up a powerful media force to engage in the ideology and cultural confrontations that exist. It is a new “movement” that with God's guidance will shift hearts and emotions to follow God in a dynamic new way. Hollywood affects the world so this holy invasion by God’s Media Experts will have global impact.
We need to be the forerunners who move with excellence and produce the best of the best in all fields. This is one of the most strategic battle fronts we face because it affects the minds, hearts, and passions of the masses. The church should be actively empowering and cheering on the “Bravehearts” who are gifted in these arenas.
About the Council
The Global Apostolic Council 4 California is committed to building strategic alliances to encourage global corporate unity in the Body of Christ. It is our desire to unify the local and statewide Church in California, in a new wineskin, touching the arts, entertainment & media through prayer & God's love, in order to reach beyond our territorial limits to affect the global Church and the world!
We acknowledge that we are a part of a larger Body of believers, worldwide, that is called of God to complete His work prior to His return. Through developing strong relationships, uniting in prayer and developing divine strategies, we want to do our part in gathering the local Body of Christ in California through the "Global Gate of Hollywood".
We use the term "Global Gates" to refer to seats of power, places of influence where key decisions are made. The Bible teaches that designated elders sat at the city gates and made decisions and exercised authority that affected their region, the surrounding territories and in some cases, the world! (Ps. 24:7)
The entire world is connected by one common thread; different forms of media! Hollywood, being the media, arts & entertainment capital of the world, is a Global gate that affects the entire world! Decisions made in Hollywood impact the entire world, either for good or for bad. Hollywood has far-reaching influences and in many cases, defines entire cultures.
We believe this is is time for Hollywood to become what God originally intended; to be redemptive & healing to the nations!
As we help to unite the local Body in California, it is equally important for us to connect to the Greater Body of Christ outside of Hollywood, serving the world through this Global Gate, by working together in a spirit of unity & humility with other churches, Christian organizations, ministries, etc.
