“This year, we celebrated 21 years of ‘soaking’ in His presence… every Monday night!”

Desiring a deeper relationship with God led Bob and Cindy on a search for 25 years.

God brought them to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1985. They have been involved in many aspects of ministry which God has used to train and equip them for the present time. In 1995, John and Carol Arnott brought the Catch the Fire Conference to Dallas. It completely changed and renewed their lives.

Out of this conference, the desire came to continue soaking and praying over each other to keep the fire burning. The decision was made to start having these “soaking parties” at their house every Monday night. People began to come from all over the DFW Metroplex and they too were renewed, revived and began to see their relationships with God go deeper. It is not uncommon now to have people travel for several hours or around the world to attend a Monday night meeting. On Labor Day, September 5, 2016 we celebrated “21 Years of Soaking” every Monday night.

So that means we have been “soaking before soaking was cool”.

Bob and Cindy have been married for 43 years, have 2 daughters that are married and 4 grandchildren.
