Faith Levine from Kansas City, Kan., will be the guest speaker at the next Great Bend Algow, on Saturday, June 8 at Perkins Family Restaurant, 2920 10th St., Great Bend. Sign-in and social time are at 9 a.m., and the meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome.
Faith Levine is an itinerate worship leader, songwriter, speaker and author. In 2004, her outreach ministry was given the name Spring of Gihon Ministries – the name inspired by the “bursting forth” of the like-named spring in Israel.
While leading worship, Faith’s desire is to be used of the Lord to draw others into His presence, where an atmosphere of reverent devotion invites the Holy Spirit to minister as He so wills. She opens with praise and worship before speaking. Her testimony includes stories of God’s faithfulness as redeemer, deliverer, provider, healer and intimate friend.
She was given the name “Faith” by her birth mother in the hope of one day being reunited; and spent the first five months of her life in an orphanage before being placed for adoption. She is in the process of self-publishing a book detailing the unexpected and beautiful circumstances that later led to reunion with her entire birth family, ushering in God’s profound and ongoing emotional healing on both sides.
Levine says she began her life as a “new creation” in Christ following an undeniable answer to an S.O.S. prayer in the fall of 1993. Everything changed in that moment of confirmed revelation. From that day forward as the disciple John states, “and there were also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.”
Since 2002, Faith has operated in the ministry of music director/worship leader and currently leads worship at Beit El Echad, a congregation located within the greater Kansas City area. In addition to leading worship, she was used of the Lord for nearly 20 years, sharing the “good news” in secular institutions, within the context of sociology courses. In that season, she had opportunity to awaken students to the truths and deceptions behind the contrasting Judeo-Christian, modernism, and postmodernism worldviews.
It is her joy to meet with others in the body of Christ to bring encouragement and edification as we all desire to finish well this race of our faith. May any present, not yet “knowing the Savior through the indwelling Holy Spirit” be touched in some way by what is witnessed – as the Lord would desire.
