The Supernatural House Church | About John Fenn
John and Barbara Fenn were born in Kokomo, Indiana and grew up just a few miles from each other.
They moved to the Tulsa, Oklahoma area in 1979, and John graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma in 1980.
They moved to the Boulder, Colorado area in the spring of 1980, and over the next 12 years John served in various capacities including Campus Minister at the University of Colorado in Boulder, pastor, associate pastor, and traveling minister.
John served as Associate Director of Victory Bible Institute, the Bible school of Victory Christian Center, and then became Executive Director where he served for three years.
Resigning in the summer of 2000, he
began traveling and teaching in churches and Bible schools all over the country.
In the fall of 2000 Peter Wagner asked John to become the Educational Advisor to the Apostolic Council of Educational Accountability (ACEA), the group of Bible schools around the world affiliated with Peter and Global Harvest Ministries.
In December of 2000 John was asked to become the Canadian National Director for WLI.
After starting The Church Without Walls International, John
severed ties with Peter Wagner and Global Harvest, as they were moving in different directions.
It seems that over 37+ years of walking with the Lord and in ministry, the Lord has allowed John
and Barb to be associated with various ministries before they started getting off balance, then moving them on, taking the best part of things learned with them.
is the author of "Pursuing the Seasons of God" and 'Return of the First Church'
Pursuing the Seasons of God is a book about the ways God leads and guides, highlighted by several visitations from Jesus in which he
has taught John many keys of walking with the Father and in the timing of the Spirit.
During a time of prayer the Lord Jesus appeared to John
in a visitation and shared some of what he
was going to be doing in the future.
Part of what he
said included a bit of a history lesson.
said that during the Charismatic renewal of the 1960's and 70's many people came out of the traditional churches because their needs were not being met and they were hungry for the deeper things of God.
At the beginning of 2001 John
was seeking the Lord as to what His
next move would be.
Having observed the 'hot' revival centers either cooling or getting spiritually off and not seeing anything on the horizon, this was a matter of prayer being kept on the 'front burner' before the Lord.
In early 2001 John
was invited to conduct a seminar and minister at a church of about 200 people in the Toronto, Canada area.
During the morning worship service John's eyes were opened to the Spirit realm and he
saw Jesus walk over to him saying in part:
God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John
The Son is the Word flesh-covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John
The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal (John 14:16;John 15:26).
FALL AND REDEMPTION - Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam's transgression and fall, sin came into the world.
The Bible says "...all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God," and "...There is none righteous, no, not one.
(Rom. 3:10; 3:23).
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the works of the devil and gave His
life and shed His
blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:14; 1 John
Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Eph. 2:8-10).
ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH - Man's first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance.
The new birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; John
3:3-5; 1 John
This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance (Matt. 3:11; John
14:16,17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:1-4).
