CITY TRANSFORMATION

Rochester, MN

Introduction

The team started meeting in 2018. They simply followed the Spiritual Foundation for Transformation and the Holy Spirit did the rest.

Root Problem

Every city needs a team of people who are seeking God’s will for their city and aligning their city with His will.

Kingdom Solution

This apostolic action team of seven people are being sent out by God to align their city with God’s will for their city. They believe God’s will for Rochester, MN is a city of health and healing. They have now started three new companies with a $32+ million budget for new projects.

Like other teams who use the Spiritual Foundation, the results are above and beyond. Not only is the team aligning the city with God’s will, they are also transforming two industries. These two industry transformations are in the next section below.

INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION

Healthcare

Introduction

Cornerstone Health is re-imaging healthcare through the lens of heaven and prototyping it. Cornerstone Health began with the Spiritual Foundation for Transformation. Today they are planning a 40,000 square foot new clinic scheduled to open in the spring of 2024 in Rochester, MN.

Root Problem

Today’s healthcare system is largely fractured, fear-based, symptom-focused, pharma-centric, profit-driven, and specialist-dependent, rather than patient-empowered. Currently, our world views “sick care” as healthcare. Consequently, we are one of the sickest nations in the world.

Kingdom Solution

At Cornerstone Health, we believe everyone can be fully healed. We believe God created us for perfect health. Cornerstone Health is an integrative, faith-based, holistic wellness center in the heart of Rochester, Minnesota. Built upon the foundational “Cornerstone” of all health and healing, as defined by scripture, our new campus will converge multiple streams of modalities and skilled practitioners into one collaborative campus dedicated to seeing every patient healed. Our integrative approach supports the body’s original design to heal, increases hope, empowers the patient, decreases the time it takes to heal, decreases cost and hassle, and decreases suffering.

Baked Goods

Introduction

Bread of Life Bakery is re-imagining baked goods through the lens of heaven and prototyping it. Bread of Life Bakery began with the Spiritual Foundation for Transformation. Now they are expected to break ground in the fall of 2022.

Root Problem

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), diabetes, obesity, mental health, autoimmune and degenerative diseases are the nation’s greatest challenges. Little surprise, these challenges are directly connected to the food we consume.

Kingdom Solution

The kingdom solution is the transformation of the baking industry locally, nationally, then globally through the newly named Bread of Life Bakery.

The mission statement is:

Bread of Life Bakery, built on a biblical foundation, is committed to providing pure and wholesome baked goods that give peace of mind and aid the body in healing both physically and spiritually.

Bread of Life Bakery will be strategically located outside of Rochester, MN, a city called to heal. The location will be vital for attracting God’s favor as we align our business with His will.

Apples

Introduction

Ocheda Orchard is re-imagining apples through the lens of heaven and prototyping the process. They have been transforming the apple industry for 20 years. They are a small orchard in Minnesota. However, the University of MN is the industry leader with over 100 years of experience and nearly 30 new varieties including Honeycrisp.

Root Problem

The process used by the University of MN to create new apple varieties is called controlled pollination because it is controlled by people rather than by nature alone. This takes a lot of time and money. According to the University, bringing one new variety to market can take 20-30 years and involve up to 20,000 seedling trees.

Kingdom Solution

Ocheda Orchard is transforming the apple industry by using open pollination. This leaves little room for people to take credit as nature creates the new varieties. The wisdom of God works through the tiny bees that have no education in agriculture or horticulture. So far, Ocheda Orchard has been producing new varieties with less than 1,000 new seedling trees per patented variety.

Here is the fruit!

Chuck Nystrom, the owner of Ocheda Orchard, commercialized the first two varieties at the same time. One variety improved Honeycrisp and the other new variety came from old parent stock that has long been rejected as viable. This shows that God can make the best better and raise up the least at the same time. Mr. Nystrom laughs when he says that “God can make a great apple out of any sour wad.”

One of those first two new varieties from the orchard is known as Sugarbee®. There is an estimated 4 million Sugarbee® trees now planted in Washington State. It is expected to be the second most popular variety of its category in the United States in 2022. Sugarbee® is also marketed in seven other nations around the world.

There are more varieties being commercialized in the pipeline.

STATE TRANSFORMATION

Minnesota

Kingdom Alignment of Minnesota is re-imagining Minnesota through the lens of heaven. Kingdom Alignment of Minnesota began by using the Spiritual Foundation for Transformation. In November of 2022 they will be having their first Re-Imagine Minnesota Summit with people invited from throughout the State.

NATIONAL TRANSFORMATION

Undisclosed Nation

A person from one of the largest foreign nations in the world attended one of the first Isaiah 9:7 trainings a few years ago in Minnesota. They traveled back to their nation and shared a diagram from our training with a group of other people at a regional conference. Eventually, the group networked with other organizations and started a transformation movement in the nation. Today, they provide young adults with vocational training that uses the model of called, equipped, and sent.  After these young adults experience personal transformation, they will be sent across the nation for the specific purpose of societal transformation. We believe the nation itself will eventually be transformed.

In order to avoid political persecutions, we are not disclosing individuals or the nation.
