The Equipping Streams Team is comprised of three (3) co-leaders (listed in alphabetical order – click the links to view each bio):
God has called these three prophets to serve by modeling the typology and biblical submission of the God-head: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are Spirit-filled believers in Jesus Christ, who have been set in order as licensed ministers and Ordained Prophets at their local church, and are properly submitted under the spiritual covering and mantle of Bishop Flanvis Josephus Johnson, II, who is Senior Pastor of The House of the Lord in Akron, Ohio and the Presiding Bishop of the Beth-El Fellowship of Visionary Churches.

Local/Regional Ministry and Spiritual Covering
The Equipping Streams Team serves as co-leaders of the Prophetic Ministry at The House of the Lord® church, which consists of a School of the Prophets and a Prophetic Presbytery Team. The primary role of this leadership team is to “make a people ready for the Lord” by preparing a prophetic community with kingdom priorities inside the church and outside the church through equipping, training, and mentoring prophets, prophetic presbytery teams, prophetic ministers, and an apostolic-prophetic community; and equipping and strengthening churches to enable their maturity through Ministering Spiritual Gifts training and activations and specialized workshops.
The role of the Prophetic Presbytery Team is to build up the church community and beyond through the ministry of edification, exhortation, and comfort, according to Ephesians 4:11-12 and 1 Cor.14:3-5. Regionally, we serve as part of ACTS (Akron Community Transformation of Society). The Equipping Streams Team of THOTL Prophets also carries forth the prophetic heart and vision of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that of Bishop Johnson, our Senior Pastor.
As an additional standard, our Prophetic Ministry Leadership Team equips others using the materials and practices established by Christian International Ministries and receives their equipping and mentoring from Christian International and CI-affiliated churches.
The Equipping Streams Team is grounded in the Word of God and in mature Christian service. We hold Teaching Certification Agreements for facilitating Christian International’s MSG (Ministering Spiritual Gifts) Training; and our Team has completed many CI Advanced Schools of Ministry (School of the Apostles, School of the Prophets, Advanced School of the Prophets, and School of Prophetic Prayer through CI or CI’s Network of Churches).
