There are many leaders in the church who are being visited with the knowledge that we have led the church in a way that has brought us to barrenness, religious blindness, and narcissism. In the author's quest to learn, he found the diagnosis is something that many in the church community agree upon: the church, particularly in America, is in desperate need of help. His testimony will bring courage to your own heart to pursue God's presence until He becomes the one thing you desire and the center focus of your life and ministry.

Lonnie Parton has been the pastor of Victory Fellowship Church in Council Bluffs, Iowa since 1987. He speaks on the subject of presence-based transformation and has a passion to see the power of Jesus transform lives. He has been married to his wife, Carolyn, for 31 years. They have three children along with their first grandchild being introduced into the world while this book was being birthed. They give God all the glory - past, present and future - for all their blessings and for what He is about to do in the church of the Jacob Generation today.Review:
In sixteen years of ministering in many different cities, I have met hundreds of leaders who longed for revival but very few who became so desperate that they were willing to abandon their own status quo in pursuit of the presence of God. Lonnie Parton has a story to tell - a testimony that our nation needs to hear if we hope to prepare ourselves for God's transforming presence. It is a story of encounter - of radical abandonment - shared with refreshing humility and honesty. --Rhonda Hughey, Directory of Fusion Ministries, Inc.
Lonnie was jerked into reality by the Holy Spirit when He challenged the basis upon which Lonnie had built his life and ministry. Read this book at your own risk. God may use this book to help you see your own spiritual barrenness as well. --Bob Sorge, Speaker and Author
