We have a passion for people, our city and our world. Our culture and leadership is characterized by worship, the love of God, and a genuine call to ministry. These core values have been shaped by our rich history of great co-workers and energy; always pressing forward in our call to love God and love others.



    Pastor James and Debbie Levesque serve as international speakers, church planters and are considered young emerging voices in America and the nations. Pastor James is the author of the newly released book Revival Hunger. Their heart is to see awakening and revival overtake Christianity and the world. Along with traveling, James and Debbie pastor and lead Engaging Heaven Church, a dynamic church located in New London, Connecticut. It continues to see lives transformed through weekly outreaches, media and many regional events.



    Pastor Bob and Sara Nicolls have both been leading worship since they were 15 years old, and their experience in and love for the presence of God creates an atmosphere for worshippers to touch the heart of the Father. They travel nationally and internationally for one purpose: to unleash a heart of passion and desperate, intense love for Jesus wherever they go!
