In 2010, I felt God leading me to create and develop my own ministry to help people in their spiritual journey. I wanted to partner with the Holy Spirit in helping people and ministries ... move along in their spiritual journey - the spiritual formation of God in their lives. To help them discern the will of God and to move into His plans and purposes for them.
The word Perissos is Greek for "abundant; to the point of overflowing". Our whole faith journey is all about ABUNDANT LIVING!
And the enemy will do very specific things to try to hinder the unique expression of Jesus Christ in and through you!
My role as a spiritual director ... or what I jokingly call a spiritual detective ... is to help you and your organization discern what those obstacles are and work with you to create more of God's movement in and through you ... and/or the organization you lead.
When I created this ministry, I had a life coach helping me in the process. He asked me one very profound question. He said, "Lori, if there was a Scripture which summarized what God has put you onto this earth to do - what is it?".
Immediately and without any wavering I said ... "John 10:5, John 15:5, John 10:10b, Hebrews 12:1-2, James 5:16, Ephesians 3:17-19 and John 12:49-50".
- To help people, leaders and ministries hear God's voice and to discern His will.
- To help people, leaders and ministries learn how do ministry from the abiding presence of Christ.
- To help people, leaders and ministries untangle the obstacle's standing in the way of God's best for them!
- To help ground and mature people in their knowledge of God and their identity in Christ, and to see them equipped for good works through sound Biblical teaching and the ministry of prayer.
Yes, to see the life of Christ established and flowing abundantly from God's people!
Thus ... the Lord said very clearly to me my personal ministry was to be called "Perissos".
As I kept praying about another word to go with Perissos, the Lord kept giving me the word "Institute".
At first, I thought the word was so ... dry and boring. However, God always knows what He is doing!
When I looked up the word, I realized it was a game changer. It was powerful.
It means what it says ... "to institute, to set into motion, to establish". Wow!
Yes, this is what God wanted! To firmly establish people, leaders and ministries into the character, nature and will of God. To help people along in their spiritual journey; their spiritual formation.
Perissos Institute is solely funded by the generous love offerings of those I minister to - as well as others who have a passion to see God's people free and empowered in their calling!
If you feel led to support this ministry, any love offerings can be mailed to the following address. All love offerings are tax deductible.
Thank you for your love and support.
Coming soon will be a page that outlines the specific services I offer ... including prayer ministry, spiritual direction, life coaching ... as well as Biblical teaching, training and equipping in various focused faith based topics.
