How to stay connected with the ministry
I wanted to take a moment and send out a personal note to my email subscribers.
My workflow is such that sending out emails hasn’t been as regular as I’d like. I wanted to share some of the different places my articles and messages are appearing so you can stay informed. The following sources are receiving my material several times a month if not more often.
I submit most of my articles first to The Stream. Due to a standard exclusivity agreement I wait three days after the publication date before submitting the article elsewhere including Facebook and my own site.
You can see my articles on The Stream HERE.
I’ve been writing for Charisma Magazine and their various publications for several years. Most of my articles are published on Charisma News. You can read articles at the following links:
After exclusivities have ended, you can read articles on my site at www.burton.tv/articles. In addition to articles you can watch and/or listen to sermons and podcasts.
I’d encourage you to be a regular visitor to www.prayerteam.tv. You have the opportunity to submit a text or audio prayer for celebrities and influencers. Today I submitted a call for intercession for Nancy Pelosi.

Author John Burton launches dramatic book, The Coming Church
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: John Burton, 719.231.6000
DETROIT AREA AUTHOR, CHURCH LEADER AND CONFERENCE SPEAKER LAUNCHES THE COMING CHURCH
“I had an encounter that left me shaken and shocked.
What I saw was clearly a picture of the church…clearly in my spirit, that is, because my intellect was confounded. It didn’t make sense.
In my encounter, the vision I saw was shocking and quite mysterious. I have had many visions of the Church, of reformation, but this one was markedly different. It sure didn’t look like a vision of the Church, but it immediately felt like one.
I was standing in an apocalyptic looking environment. It was dark and weighty. In front of me was an absolutely massive, burning crater. God immediately revealed to me that I was looking at the soon coming Church.”
WASHINGTON, MICHIGAN, Oct. 30, 2013— Church planter and author John Burton of Washington, Michigan, will debut his latest prophetic manuscript “The Coming Church” Oct. 30, 2013. This book is the result of two years of study and teaching on the content in the context of local churches.
Burton, the founder of Revolution House of Prayer in Manitou Springs, Colorado and Revival Church in Warren, Michigan, has been invested in the analysis of the condition of the church, and this book is the result of his study. In addition, he is the founder of theLab University, an ministry school based in the Detroit area. This school is currently expanding to an online version to meet the desires of students worldwide.
The Coming Church is based on a striking vision of a cataclysmic event impacting the planet. The resulting crisis will be felt around the world as fire and smoke engulfs the Earth.
Respected international apostolic leader Barbara Yoder says, “This book will rock your boat! John Burton isn’t an ordinary church leader. He is one of the emerging, cutting edge and at times raw (cuts to the chase) ministries who are changing the face of the church. Some will be upset with this book. Those lovers of God, radical revelatory types will jump up and down. John’s book will set them on fire. Read with care. This is the future.”
Brian Simmons, a renowned author and Bible translator says, “I’m thankful for men like John Burton who hear a sound coming out of heaven, a trumpet sound, calling this generation to something more than good meetings and life as usual. We need men and women who are more than echoes of the past, but voices who prophesy what is to come. I believe those men and women are being prepared to arise and take their place in human history. A message of The Coming Church is needed more than ever! The Holy Spirit has anointed this message, and it will roll on throughout the nations. The call of God is gripping hearts of awakeners to leave the predictability of the church and move into the reality of the ever-fresh kingdom of God!”
John Burton is available for interviews and appearances. For booking presentations, media appearances, interviews, and/or book-signings visit www.johnburton.net/booking and contact email@example.com.

Our Current Situation in Detroit
Amy and I and the Burton family would be honored if you would read through this and contact us this week. God is really doing some amazing things around here!
Last May we made a seemingly crazy decision to move against the massive flow of people out of Detroit, and to move here to help prepare the region for revival.
Since then we’ve developed some amazing and important relationships, started Revival Church, ministered in churches and raised up a solid team of revivalists.
The reason for the mass exodus out of the Detroit area is the tragic level of unemployment. I’ve heard it said that there’s ONE JOB for every 90 people looking for a job!
We knew we were taking a huge faith step, and with little guaranteed monthly finances we’d have to live on the miraculous giving of our friends and partners.
Those of you that know me understand very well that I embrace a lifestyle of thankfulness, joy and faith. The following situation is not a complaint or an expression of frustration, but a simple and very real analysis of our current situation.
- Since I had to start working outside the church, my actual time involved in ministry has been reduced to near zero (the goal is to be invested 40-60 hours a week, and I’m currently ministering less than 5)
- Church plant coaches say that a key and initial goal is to raise enough money so the planter doesn’t have to divide his time and energy by working outside of the church. (The time necessary to be involved in prayer, study, pastoring, networking, developing, creating teams, marketing, etc. is quite extreme… it’s way more than a full time job in itself.)
- Due to the high time requirements and demands of church and ministry leadership, Steve Gray of World Revival Church in Kansas City recently said, “…every pastor, if they are working a job outside the church,their goal should be, as fast as possible,to get rid of that job."
- My energy and focus has been divided significantly due to the need to get a job (again, thankful, but wisdom demands an evaluation of this)
- I currently work until around 6pm every day, and then work for my own design business most evenings from 6pm to bedtime and also on Saturdays.
- I’ve been preparing my sermon for Sunday’s Revival Church service the hour before I leave for service every Sunday, which just can’t continue.
- The preparation of revival requires a massive time commitment, and I don’t want my part of the mission to remain on hold for much longer. The work to be done is huge, and I must give myself to it fully.
We are boldly asking for you to financially partner with our ministry. We need to raise at least $3000 a month to replace my job, and another $1000 or so to replace my design business.
You can give via credit card at www.johnburtonministries.com/donate. If you setup recurring monthly donations, that would be a huge blessing. If you’d prefer to make a special donation, that would bless us as well!
The donations are tax-deductible. If you’d prefer to send a check, just contact us and we’ll get you the info. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and Amy’s is email@example.com. My phone is 313.799.3473.
THANK YOU SO MUCH. We’d love to hear from you and share more about this huge mission in Detroit!
We love you!
John, Amy, Skylar, Parker, Jet and Ella
Here’s a short Christmas greeting video for you from us in Detroit. http://www.tokbox.com/vm/qjz2ea86onh1
Remember the Revival Church Christmas Eve service is TONIGHT at 7pm.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Many blessings to you all!
As you know, our ministry is supported financially in a variety of ways, and our very favorite way is through our home business!
You can support our ministry very easily by connecting with our business team- either as a business builder OR as a shopper of phenomenal eco-friendly products (NO new money required- use the same money you already spend at the grocery store! This company is really brilliant!)
We have been home business owners since late April, and we’re having a blast watching it develop. Our last check was nearly $900 and we average around 5 hours a week of work (if you can call it work!)
We have an organization of over 100 people, and a large number of them are ministers and ministry-minded people.
We would strongly encourage you to join our team- there is no financial risk whatsoever! And, for the next three days, the enrollment is only $1! (Yep, one dollar!)
We pray that our reputation speaks for itself- we would never participate in anything that would jeopardize our ministry or lack integrity. Over 500,000 people are involved and the company is in the Better Business Bureau Hall of Fame.
**Can we request an hour of your time? We’d love to connect on the phone while we step through the info online. No risk, no pressure, no stress, lots of fun!
If nothing else it would be great to actually talk in person with the many friends of our ministry!
Visit www.hometeamcareers.com, fill out the form on the site, or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can call me at 313.799.3473 or Amy at 719.200.0049.
Blessings to you all!
