We are a global family of fasting and prayer contending for revival and missions in our day.
We are the nameless and faceless generation that seeks His Face.

Co-Founder and Visionary of TheCall


Dear Friends of TheCall,

Thirty-five years ago, I read a book by a man named Derek Prince. The title was Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting. He writes how the destinies of nations are literally shifted by united, massive fasting and prayer. It became the textbook of my life. When he passed away, I said to God, “If You will allow me, I will take Derek Prince’s seed to the whole earth.” 

I believe that we are moving into that day. As we have ended TheCall, I felt the Holy Spirit say that there is a new generation coming that's going to carry the DNA of TheCall of fasting and prayer for breakthrough for high schools, universities, and for cities like no other generation has carried it.

Therefore, I write this letter to tell you about a movement called Contend. This movement comes out of TheCall and is led by my spiritual son and daughter, David and Audry Kim. I want to tell you there are few who carry the fasting and prayer mantle that’s been on my life like David and Audry. I am so thrilled because I believe Contend is going to raise up something even way beyond where I've gone with TheCall.

Ultimately, I believe this movement will shake and shape the future of nations. I urge you to throw yourself behind the Contend Movement and a company of young leaders who are some of the finest I know. Let’s believe for a mass youth movement of fasting and prayer that will go beyond anything we have ever seen.

My expectation is that Contend will carry a double-portion of my intercessory mantle for the birthing of the next stage for America turning back to God. As a father never gives away his sons and daughters, I remain heart and soul as a father committed to bring Contend into the fullness of its spiritual inheritance and impact. It is my dream that this movement will fill the earth with intercession, fasting and prayer breakthroughs for revival in America, and a missionary prayer movement to the unreached people groups of the earth.  

Out of TheCall has come the offspring of Contend. I am still believing that Derek Prince’s seed will fill the whole earth. I also urge you all reading this letter to support Contend not only with your prayers, but with your finances. Fund and follow Contend as this movement goes out into the nations. Thank you so much for hearing my heart.
