Amplified 09'

I'm pretty excited about Amplified 2009!!! In the past we have never opened up this conference to other churches but we really felt God nudging us to create an enviroment where we could blur the lines of denomination and church names!! We have some other great churches coming to be a part and we know God is gonna do some awesome things!! Last year God dropped the bomb on us and we know that He has something special for us for 2009. The prayer that we are praying is that God would amplify the cries of broken,hurting,lost,forgotten people in our hearts...that their cries would disturb us in our indifference and apathy...that we would be moved to irrational outburst of love that bring help and hope. The weekend is jammed packed so u don't want to miss it!! If u or your youth group want to be a part or would like more details then plz check us out here Or call us @ 2254083380 ext 345 below is just a lil sample of our schedule. keep checkin my blog for more info about AMPLIFIED 2009
also, check out the live recording from last years AMPLIFIED in case you missed it

"Charities can easily become our brokers to the poor....the danger is that we never know the poor....there's never a connection made and yet we feel ok with it b/c our charity eases and appeases our conscience and we go about our life w/ a masked sense of service to those He loves so much.

All this talk about bailout makes me think of Romans 5: while we were yet HELPLESS sinners Christ came and paid a debt we could never pay....1 peter 1: and the bailout wasn't with cash but with the precious and priceless blood of Jesus, the sinless spotless lamb of God!!!! Gov'ts can't bust up a bailout like that...that's legendary!!!!

The gospel still works

A couple of weeks back I had the honor of hearing Franklin Graham preach at the catalyst conference and his message was amazing!!! He said,"forget what your conferences,seminaries, and own intellect have taught you about preaching...sometimes they tell you that just the ole gospel is to need to make it catchy and colorful with your creativity....BUT let me tell you that your catchy,clever sermons and illustrations can bring NO eternal-significant impact BUT the gospel has changes people...IT STILL WORKS TODAY!!" He must have said that "it still works today" 50! From India to Atlanta the gospel cuts deep into a mans heart...its the only thing that works. I have proof that it works: Saturday nite I helped baptize my sister-n-law and brother-n-law who I have been praying for for nearly 10 years....ask them if the gospel still works!!!!

mañana el 40:SAP

at the risk of being NON-ORIGINAL I'm about to share a clip from someones blog who took a clip from someone Else's blog to communicate something INSANELY AWESOME that begins on mañana hahahaha
here goes:
Starting tomorrow October 6Th we are embarking on what stands to be an amazing adventure…

Forget cool artwork or intriguing videos, this adventure is straight old school/organic/ghost-fest/in your face seeking the presence of God.

It’s 40:SAP!!!

Check out what Pastor Dino has to say about it:

So what is 40:SAP? This Tuesday, October 6, I will begin a 40 day Spiritual Adventure Pursuit, and I would love for you to join me. It will be a time of fasting, praying, reading His word - and I think some spontaneity in how He speaks to us. I think it is so crucial to press in and seek God’s presence right now and I think He is going to do something big. With the state of the economy, the upcoming election and the crazy things happening in our world we just need to hear from Heaven and receive the Holy Spirit’s guidance regarding our lives, families, churches and resources. I have huge expectation for this season!

Are you in?

So, what’s it going to be? Its a risky/dangerous deal but what if during the next 40 or so days God’s presence showed up and rocked your world? I don't know about you, but for me that is a risk worth taking. Will you join us in our pursuit of Him?

Thursday, October 2, 2008

HPC-full on

Message from Ps Dino:

Dear Church,
Isn't it awesome to see all that God has done the last couple weeks? We
are amazed every time we think back on all the opportunities we had to
serve together! Thank you for all the time, energy, and resources you have
given to make Healing Place an extension of Christ to our world.
We want to make sure you know that all of HPC's weekend services are
back to normal this Saturday and Sunday! Each campus will have
their regularly scheduled services, at their usual locations (except
Donaldsonville services which will meet at the East campus on Sunday morning). Be sure to check the website at for all the latest updates.
We can't wait to see you!
All for HIM,
Pastor Dino and DeLynn

Hurricane Gustav

As a staff we are getting geared up for this weekend and beggining of next week as thousands of people will be evacuating new orleans and potential impact areas due to hurricane Gustav. Moments like these always present a great oppurtunity for us to step up and really be the Church!!! To find out ways to help in our efforts you can check out
or call the church (225-753-2273) if you or someone you know needs help.

HPC Gameplan: Donaldsonville Dream Center (West Campus) is working w/ The Department of Homeland Security and is set to be shelters. BRDC (Winbourne) is making preparations now to assist nursing home and elderly. Our Highland Campus will serve as a Rest Stop for those traveling on I-10 out of New Oreleans and it’s surrounding areas .

Falling in Love

About 11 yrs ago this is where Jennifer "fell" in love with me. She was in 8th grade and I was in 10th and we were students at Christian Life Academy. Well, one day down this hall I was flirting with her and following (not stalking) her down the hall and for some reason I decided to try and kick the bottom of her shoe as she took a step so that she would take a super step but it didn't work out exactly as I thought. She tripped, went flying thru the air and with her thumbs tucked behind her booksack straps on her shoulders preoccupying her hands she hand nothing to break her fall but her face...OUCH!!!!! O ya, she had braces on her grill so her lips got busted...she started crying. Her lips started bleading and I took off running! So there you have it, that's the story of how jennifer my beautiful wife fell in love with me 11 yrs ago. (Fellas I don't suggest this method)

Kingdom Builders

Today was an awesome day as some of our HPC family came together to celebrate what God has done and what God is going to do with us in building His kingdom. It was a great time of worship and hearing Ps dino share his heart and God's vision for where we are headed....the best truly is yet to come!!! Then christine caine brought the thunder and challenged us to to continue in this great assignment God has given us. And finally, we took our first tour of the HPC arena which is our new worship space that God is building thru us so that we can reach more people for His kingdom. Its amazing to get to be a part of what God is doing at healing place church......

I can't sleep so here goes....

Sometimes it seems as if us christians have decided that the safest place for us is behind the walls of a building we call "the church." We can easily drift into the thought that our "church" keeps us from the contamination of the world.. And sometimes we're prolly even guilty of making church a refuge "from" the world rather than a refuge "for" the world. And then every so often we feel guilty b/c we know that the bible teaches us to "GO and make disciples..." So we go on a mission project or spend a few hours doing something charitable don't we? We've defined this kinna stuff as "being set apart and holy" mixed with "evangelism." But there is a shift taking place amoung christians and churchs. I have this sense that the church as a whole is beggining to get it.... God's church is grasping the reality that we're not called to live apart from the world and only come out once or twice a year;we're called to live without walls, to be an active part of our community and to influence it for Jesus. Ya, I like that! We are the church....we are a light slap in the middle of our dark communities not meant to be hidden in a building but spread onto every single street and into every single home.....AMEN

Big Hair Christians

So, I was catching a flight out of L.A. Lastnite to Sidney and 2 1/2 hrs into the flight the captain comes over the loud speaker and says, "don't be alarmed by the flames coming out of the engine on the right wing!!!!" What? Ya....FIRE!!! Not good right? Well needless to say we had to turn around and go back to L.A. For an emergency landing awaited by 12 fire trucks....spent the nite in L.A. And then this a.m. As I was at starbucks I ran into these two cool old guys with big hair and we started chatting and they tell me their names "les and moore" (funny I know) and then I said hey where do I know u guys from? They say "ever heard of the rock band stryper?" I was like "yeahya".....then they asked me to pray for them cuz they were headed to rock a show in cool is that???

just say it

im not that savvy when it comes to church history or history alone for that matter...i slept through all that stuff in high school and seminary but for the past couple of weeks ive thought about that monumental day back in 1517 when one man with one message decided to take a stand for what he felt burning in his heart. martin luther saw that the church had become something it was never intended to be and his convictions wouldnt allow him to let it stay in the condition it was in. so what does he do? he points out 95 things that he felt like needed to be addressed. and how does he get the message out? NAILS THE MESSAGE TO THE DOORS OF A CHURCH!!!! ouch!! that decision to say what he said has changed not only church history but history itself. WOW!!! i guess my thought is simply this: do the messages i speak really bring about any significant change? do the words that you say have any lasting value? what if someone took the notes to my last sermon, or my best sermon at that, and nailed them to the doors of a church would anyone even stop to read? i guess the most practical application would be to encourage you to say what needs to be said....dont hold back from speaking truth even if it cost you great pain to do it....weither its a sermon,relationship,friendship or a mtg "say what needs to be said even if it hurts." forgive my rambling.AMEN :-)

This is none other than "the mantis" (jared ray). He is one of my favorite mates on the planet, an incredible servant that adds mad value to our team at HPC, and is an awesome man of God with amazing purpose attatched to his life!!!! He has served faithfully the vision of our house and the mission of God here in B.R. But now God is moving him into an awesome oppurtunity to learn and grow as he transitions to this new stage of his life. In case you didn't know "mantis" will be moving to california for three years to attend a 1st class photo journalism school....we will miss him like crazy but we know that God is gonna use this as a catalyst for the great things to come in his ministry and life. Be praying for him......hopefully he will find a "HWOG"=hot woman of God while he is gone. Hahahhahahah!!!! We love you bro, good luck.

Creative church

I was walking thru our creative department and stumbled across this high-level green screen. If u film something in front of a greenscreen u can do all types of cool graphics and could make it look like I'm in the middle of the ocean). Funny thing is I don't think this homemade green screen is like "regulation green screen" looks like our creative guru's robbed a fabric store and went for it!!!! ***CREATIVITY=solving problems! Our problem is we don't have a green room,green creen or green car....we'll I have a savage green car. Anyway, I wanted to salute all my pep's that serve in the creative dept at HPC b/c even though they don't have everything it always takes to make it happen, they still do!!! That's creative......they not only make it happen but make it mackin. Creative leadership will demand for you to make something excellent under not so excellent conditions....with a good attitude. Mad props to u guys in the creative group for being CREATIVE!!!!!

Urgent Prayer Request

Danielle Leblanc jus got a new celly but she refused to take off the protective cellophane off the cover of it BUT after I set her free by ripping that shackle from her destiny to free her so she could be all she was created to hurt her feelings but as her loving pastor I refused to let her remain in bondage to the protective cellophane....I've seen many cool people loose cool points for this type of destuctive behaviour!!!! This is at the park at the refuge BBQ this today.....the pix is of her family and freinds encouraging her with prayer!!!!! What a nerd!!!! Thank God for people like me who are demanding that people be set free from being NERDS!!!! Hahahahahahaha

I'm excited about the lives who were touched and changed but the one that I'm excited the most about is my 6yr old nephew who broke down crying friday nite when he heard what Jesus went thru for him and so little brennen went to the altar with tears in his eyes and said yes to Jesus!!! I asked him what happened to him and he said," Jesus kissed me..." WOW! What a way to describe a close close that He kissed him. AMEN
