A Project of Operation Depletion
If you are interested in joining the TLC team, we would be delighted to chat and if possible, personally meet with and welcome you. Our immediate positions are as prayer coordinators for the six states with a sole surgical abortion clinic remaining. If you are in any of the other states with more than one such clinic, we do want to talk to you, however, if accepted as state coordinator, we will probably not immediately and officially put you in place, though that is subject to change. Our priorities lie with first zeroing out the one clinic states, however, if those fill fast, then we will move to the states with 2-4 such clinics and so on.
Positions are volunteer and non-paid, though depending on how TLC and Operation Depletion develop, that is subject to change. Expense reimbursements and stipends will be issued as funds are available. As of the moment, we haven't set up any mechanism to accept donations, however, anyone who wants to contribute to TLC can contact me privately and we will arrange for your gifts to be accepted. Any gifts will NOT be tax deductible for many reasons which I will not get into here.
Anyone from the six particular states who wants to be prayer coordinator may apply to do so, though because this operation will soon be based in Missouri (with your truly soon hopefully relocating there and with his pending assistant already a resident) and because Missouri is Ground Zero for TLC, the director and assistant reserve the option to assume the leadership position for the Show Me State. However, if you live in the state and are burning to lead the way, do let us know. We do not want to turn away anyone who has a passion or calling to zero out the abortion cartels.
Those who wish to lead their states for TLC should download and complete the application and meet the following requirements:
After the interview, I will promptly let you know your status. If I feel there and then you are to be a leader with us. I will tell you. If I feel you do not fit in with us, I will also tell you, though you can always join us in our events. If I am unsure about your role with us but need to further think it over, I will tell you just that. I will not lie and say “well, I'm thinking about having you come aboard” when such is not the case. I will shoot straight with you. All I ask is you do the same with me, amen?
If the interview is favorable or pending favorable, there will be one more step to complete and that is getting a reference that you have the evidence of being filled with the Holy Spirit or that you are earnestly seeking and anticipating being filled. As I said, we must have Spirit filled men and women on the TLC team. That may seem rigid and the detailed process I have set out may arguably be viewed that way but because this is a Pentecostal ministry led by Pentecostals, we must keep this policy uniform. We cannot and will not tolerate division in our ranks. We must be united. There are numerous scriptures for being united and not divided (like Acts 2:1) so this is a no-brainer.
The reference letter can be from a pastor (note that we have no church membership or affiliation requirement, though we believe such is a wise idea), a friend, a colleague, fellow employee or even a family member or relative, as long as he or she can attest to your relationship with the Lord and your baptism in the Holy Spirit or your earnestness in being filled. The letter can be simply be something to the effect of, “I write you on behalf of Tom Smith/Sandy Jones. I know him her rather well. He/she goes to church with me/works with me/is my brother/sister-in-law (etc. etc.). He/she has experienced the infilling of the Holy Spirit and is a kind person/a person of good moral character/a faithful Christian (etc. etc.) and would be a good fit in this cause.”
The letter should contain your name, address, e-mail address and the signature of the attester and then e-mailed as an attachment to our e-mail address.
At this point I want to turn to those who may want to be part of us but not in a leadership capacity. We heartily welcome you to the TLC family but I want to quickly address a few other items.
If you are someone from a “quiet” church like the Baptist denomination who may be uneasy about things like speaking in tongues but believe this is not of Satan (believe me, many people in today's churches believe tongues are of the devil) or just want to ignore it altogether, we will never turn you away from affiliating with us as long as you're not here to sow discord and friction on the issue, however, to be a team leader, you must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is a proudly profoundly Pentecostal ministry, leadership is Pentecostal and there will be zero tolerance for anyone attempting to water it down or seek to divide and conquer.
I am keenly aware that Catholics have historically been the leaders in the pro-life movement. I am hugely thankful for them, even though I left the Catholic Church decades ago. I also know many of them know Jesus as Lord and Savior and though the Catholic Charismatic movement is for the most part a thing of the past, there may still be some out there. If you're one of those, God bless you, regardless of whether you seek to have a role with the TLC cause.
However, and this may be controversial to some (though it really shouldn't be), we will not permit any Catholics to be TLC ministry leaders if they have a public devotion to the Rosary or any other alignment in praying to the saints. Though we will not go out of our way to enforce it, we will discourage all Catholics from bringing Rosary beads or any saint praying devotionals to any of our events. This is not meant to be offensive to Catholics. This is mean to be Biblically faithful and truthful. John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man (or woman) comes unto the Father but by me”. One cannot come to God thru St. Peter, St. Anthony, Mary or praying to anyone else. One can only come to the Father thru Christ Jesus. One cannot come any other way because Jesus alone solely possesses divinity. Mary does not, Joseph does not, Peter does not, no one else does. Therefore not only is it unscriptural to pray to anyone other than God & Christ, it is futile since the saints cannot hear prayers, let alone answer them.
Why is this crucial? Because when we all join together outside the abortion clinics we seek to permanently close, we must all be in agreement together. The Book of Acts is a classic example of what happens when God's people are united in doctrine and when they are not. I Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”.
If we have God's people in front of a clinic we're praying in the Holy Ghost to shut down, it is discord and division when a few others are praying to deceased saints and other individuals while the rest of us are united in doing so. We cannot allow that and that is why we will discourage Rosary and other praying that fails to line up with scripture. We want Catholics to join us in prayer. But those who aren't praying in agreement with us and to God the Father & the Lord Jesus Christ are dividing our cause. We all want the clinics to be out of business. But we're not in unity when we're praying to different individuals. So we ask all Catholics seeking to join us to leave their rosaries and other religious paraphernalia home; better yet, disband them all together. Your spiritual devotion is to the Father, Son & Holy Spirit, AKA the Trinity.
I thank God for every pro-life group, organization and person (private or public, such as a lawmaker or governor) who has advanced the pro-life message and cause. I am grateful to everyone who has made an impact over the years in pro-life, big or small, whether it be a conversion to Christ or simply to pro-life, whether it be the shuddering of an abortuary, whether it be an advancement of a good pro-life bill or rescinding of bad pro-life legislation. I honor those who paid the price in life by serving time in the pen (as my late pastor, mom and stepdad did in the 90s). I honor those feverishly working to end the existence of the St. Louis PP, including Gov. Parson and the Missouri state legislature as well as the Missouri Board of Health. But now we need a nudge for the state to finish the job and that nudge will be a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit amidst the darkness there and the Lord using His people to be in joint prayer in the Spirit and in one accord to effect swift justice and an end to the baby killer cartels.
May God bless all who have read this page and seek to become part of the TLC ministry and Operation Depletion commitment to send spiritual shockwaves across the entire nation. Direct involvement with this potentially spiritually explosive cause isn't for everyone. The details and requirements laid out on this page and the home page will no doubt deter some. Hopefully some of those who may indeed be deterred will rethink their position and make the commitment to be part of us and those who still refuse will not be detractors to this cause. The Lord had to narrow Gideon's army in Judges 7 to a mere 300 men committed to win for Israel against the enemy. In similar fashion, may the Lord weed out those who do not belong here and bring armies of His saints to deliver America from the abortion industry. In Jesus' name, Amen!
