Beyond the Veil: The Encounter
I am Dr. Yolanda Sherman and I want to take you on a journey of how it all began. I was a leader in ministry and experiencing trials in my personal life. I remember attending a local assembly and found myself leaving empty and thirsting for more. I would go home, pray and have encounters with the Father that were unexplainable. However, I felt different after those encounters. This was so profound to me at this pivotal point in my life of transition. During the year of 2010, God gave me a vision to bring people to a place of worship that was unrestricted and did not include the usual religious rituals. Many are serving in local assemblies but bound in their spiritual life and not experiencing the true freedom of intimacy with the Father. Many lives have been transformed over the years through this worship encounter that is a sacrificial offering unto the Father. In 2017, God expanded the vision to add community awareness and outreach. This component strives to bring about wholeness in the family unit. BODY, SOUL, SPIRIT! And, No individual or family will be left behind.
FROM OUR YOUTH DIRECTOR...
The Word of the Lord declares in Matthew 27:51, “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.(KJV)” This scripture has been deeply ingrained in my spirit since the beginning of Beyond the Veil. This is the scripture that to me changed the game for us as believers. My intent is to point this out to the Youth and Young Adults this year. When the Veil was ripped we were given access to go beyond it and into the secret crevices of the heart of our Lord.
You have been adopted into this Family but with all the same privileges of, he who was born into it. We no longer need a Pastor, Pharisee, Priest or anyone else to go beyond the veil. I want every youth, teen, and young adult to know, understand, and always remember that you have complete access to you Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Let not sin, anger, depression, guilt, shame, obstacle or anything stop you from experiencing this Saving, Healing, Delivering power of God. I want them to leave with useful and tangible information that will help them cultivate their daily, personal and real relationship with God that will sustain them and teach them on the road to destiny and purpose.
This Year I want everyone to experience a true inward transformation of the heart and mind. I want PRAYER LIVES TO INCREASE IN JESUS NAME. I want them to leave wailing, weeping, and travailing before the feet of our God, so that we can adhere to when we humble ourselves, and pray God will heal our land. This is my prayer and hearts desire for this years Conference.
