Even though I, for a season, live in seclusion, I often sense in my spirit what God is doing in His beloved church. That is our church. I have seen His mighty Foot leave it’s imprint on the very floor of the sanctuary and at that time heard the words “THIS PLACE IS MINE.” I am honoured to be a part of what He is doing and with the people He Loves.
I understand how many would wonder about my living in this place away from the body of believers. I know I would. I hope this letter will help you to understand…. In history a group of secluded brothers and some sisters lived in the desert and were known as the Desert Fathers. I was deeply impressed with this mystical yet devoted group of warriors. All of them could have become well known and well paid Prophets in their known world. They answered the call of God to become unknown to most of the church and world. There needed to be some, who would receive from God, the ability to stay in seclusion and pray. Far from the stir of society, they sought God and Listened. They fought the inner battles of selfish desire and purified their soul from unGodliness. With demons conquered from within, they waged war on the demons with out in realms unseen to the natural eye.
Dan Chappell was fathered in the prophetic by Robert Ewing of Grace Churches of Texas in the early 80’s and mentored in “The Heart of the Father" by Jack Winters.
He is recognized trans locally for his sensitive and encouraging prophetic and strategic insight. His gifting is not just for the local church, but impacts churches across the continent. Debbie, his wife, stands with him in this demanding role.
