Winston Churchill was quoted saying, “The mountaintop inspires leaders but the valleys mature them...”

"A boss has the title, a leader has the people." Lao Tzu

Proverbs 24:3 says, “Through wisdom a house is built; and by understanding it is established.”

Intercession is selfless prayer. An intercessor is someone who stands in the gap, between God and others. An intercessor dares to go before a Mighty God and contend for those around them. Whether it be a “Family, a City, a State, or a Nation.” The greatest need in churches at this hour on God’s timetable is more intercessors. We have plenty of people willing to support and do the work before man, but few that are willing to do the work before God’s throne.

From part of a teaching at Kingdom Leadership Academy in our latest course Prophetic Intercession now available at for purchase. This 6-week course is about transforming your prayer life with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Experience a deeper connection with God through inspired prayer, and equip yourself for impactful ministry.

Warfare always surrounds the birthing of a miracle. Do not falter, do not fear. Stand firm in your faith and press on. Your miracle awaits just beyond the horizon of adversity. Finish this year strong, for your victory is closer than it seems.

The difference between support vs. protest! Beautiful to see so many gather in Washington, DC to show their support for Israel. 🇮🇱🙏

One of the principles that Apostle Byrd has taught us is that "Powerless People Protest" this is a perfect example of the difference.

We are standing with and praying for those held captive.

Lovers of Israel, today in Washington DC National Mall Americans are coming together to Stand with Israel and show their support in the capital of the United States of America.

Thank you for being our closest ally, thank you for being our friend.

🙏 Join us at Kingdom Leadership Academy for our Saturday morning Intercessory Prayer Empowerment Hour led by Apostle Jonathan Byrd! 🙌

📖 KINGDOM DYNAMICS: Divine Revelation and Spiritual Warfare, FAITH'S WARFARE" 🛡️ (From the Spirt Filled Bible)

God's promises are boundless, just as He assured Jeremiah. When we call upon Him, not only does He respond, but He also unveils to us "great and mighty things" that remain hidden from the ordinary eye. The Hebrew word for "mighty," 'batsar,' can also be understood as "isolated" or "inaccessible." This implies that God blesses us with "revelational insight," revealing profound truths that would otherwise be hidden or beyond reach.

This "revelational insight" is indispensable for gaining a clear understanding of victorious spiritual warfare. Effective prayer is not just about words; it's about having insight into how to pray and understanding what God truly desires us to seek in our prayers. (2 Kings 6:8-17 / Proverbs 3:5, 6) 📜

Join us every Saturday morning as we gather to equip ourselves with the tools necessary to become effective kingdom citizens. Our goal is to empower you to pray with profound insight, enabling you to intercede with purpose and clarity. 🌟

Let's dive deeper into God's Word, grow in our spiritual understanding, and become warriors of faith together! 🛡️

Saturday 9 am - 10 am

How To Have Faith For Your Breakthrough!

Devotional 1: The Apostolic Call to Sanctification
*Scripture Reference: Joshua Chapter 3*

1. Apostolic Reflection: Across the annals of scripture, God has been resolute in His call to His chosen – demanding not mere faith, but a consecration that aligns us with His divine order. In the Book of Joshua, the Israelites were instructed to sanctify themselves, and it wasn't just a plea; it was a decree. A clarion call. Today, the mandate remains unchanged, echoing through the corridors of time, beckoning us toward an alignment with God’s Kingdom.

2. Apostolic Action: Today, stand in your spiritual office. Recognize the weight of the mandate on your life. Sanctify yourself in thought, word, and deed. Whether it's abstaining from worldly distractions, dedicating moments for fervent prayer, or immersing oneself in scripture – these are not just acts, but a divine alignment with God's governmental order. By setting yourself apart, you position yourself as a vessel, ready for His miraculous workings.

3. Prayer of Alignment: Sovereign Lord, as I heed the apostolic call to sanctify myself, infuse me with divine wisdom and understanding. May my actions resonate with Your heavenly pattern, and may I become a conduit for Your miracles in this realm. Align me with Your Kingdom's purpose and let Your will be manifested in and through me.

We want to honor and recognize our Chancellor's Birthday! 🎉🥳🎂
May your day and year be blessed with the SUPERNATURAL blessings of God!


We The People. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸


🇺🇸 On this Flag Day, let's honor the brave men and women who have served our country, following in the footsteps of Christ's selfless sacrifice. May we show gratitude for their service and extend a helping hand to those in need. 🇺🇸


Pastor James "Jim" Williams, who was born on November 28, 1954, in Providence, RI, peacefully entered his heavenly abode on June 2, 2023. Pastor Jim dedicated several years of his life to serving as a licensed minister at Faith Center International, working closely with his cherished wife, Pastor Miriam Williams. He also held the honor of being an ordained minister at Kingdom Center Rockford.

Unconfined by any specific religious tradition or denomination, Pastor Jim was a devoted servant of God. He lived out the calling of a servant leader, a personal and spiritual journey that required total commitment to God and a deep-seated obligation to all humanity.

His service spanned various areas, including significant involvement in Mighty X Ministries of Faith Center, advocating for Prison and Jail Criminal Justice Reform, and serving as an ambassador to men under the auspices of the Christian Men's Network. At the heart of his leadership was compassion deeply rooted in God's love.

Pastor Jim radiated love that was unconditional and devoid of judgment. His heart was always prepared to give love and receive it from others. He was a man of firm personal beliefs, standing strong on his Godly principles regardless of the situation or the potential consequences. He was a steadfast husband and an exemplary father to his children.

His unwavering faith and distinctive personality will be deeply missed by all who knew him, particularly his family and friends at Kingdom Center Rockford.

Pastor Jim was well known for giving scholarships to students that would not have been able to attend courses at Kingdom Leadership Academy. To honor Pastor Jim we have established the KLA James Williams Scholarship Fund in his memory.
