For more than 30 years, Terry and his wife Donna have served in full-time ministry. They have pioneered and pastored a number of churches during this time, as well as participating in Shiloh, an international prophetic ministry based in Kansas City, MO. Terry has a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Central Bible College, Springfield, MO.
Terry has traveled extensively since the late 90’s both internationally and across the United States ministering in churches, conferences, and to individuals to encourage them in knowing the Lord and living in His love.
Today, he travels with his son Josiah as they minister to the body of Christ and challenge the church to come out to the Lord and prepare herself for her Bridegroom. When he is home, he gives oversight to The Gathering church in Dickson, TN, and soon hopes to establish the Shiloh Training Center in the region.
Terry and Donna and their children Nathaniel, Josiah, Cherith, Daniel, and Shiloh, daughter-in-law Naomi, and grandchildren reside in Dickson, Tennessee.
Pastors Lu & Cynthia Luthra have been walking faithfully with the Lord since they received Jesus into their lives in 1980. Not long after their conversion they were called into the ministry. The Lord gave them a vision to teach and preach the word, prepare the Bride for her King, and fan the flames of revival.
They have led home groups, participated in missions, pastored churches—even established a Bible College—pouring their hearts out in teaching, counseling, and equipping many for Kingdom work.
Lu’s gifting in teaching and pastoral ministry is fueled by a hunger to raise up an end-time army for the Lord. With a heart after GOD, Lu is anointed with Apostolic authority through example he teaches how to establish ones character in inner and outer Godly strength and purity, as well as utilizing divine wisdom and practical living. He uses his gift to strengthen, edify and uplift others in their gifts, callings and destiny. He carries a Father’s heart, to encourage others to be lifted up in their callings.
Cynthia’s heart burns for the body of Christ to be brought into revival and intimate relationship with the Lord, a passion sustained by a ministry of prayer and intercession and the gift of prophecy. Cynthia is anointed with an apostolic Prophetic call to teach and lead into prophetic passionate love for Christ in her spontaneous worship, to raise up a new breed of warriors for the kingdom.
Both Cynthia and Lu walk under the anointing to create open heavens experiences, where believers are taken into a deep place of intimacy with God. In that place, where the tangible and manifest atmosphere of the glory of God has come down from heaven, some truly awesome spiritual and mystical realities can be experienced.
Their mission is to cultivate an environment, a dwelling place, for the Lord to manifest His full glory and change the hearts of each believer who desires to be the Bride. Their ministry “Dwelling Place”, helps believers to experience open heavens and the power of God in their lives daily, so that they can carry the presence of the Lord to the world.
International House of Prayer
The Lord has called them to be a community of believers committed to God, each other, and to establishing and maintaining a 24/7 house of prayer in Kansas City—a perpetual solemn assembly gathering corporately to fast and pray, in the spirit of the tabernacle of David.
They are committed to prayer, fasting, the Great Commission, and to living as forerunners, spiritually preparing for the unique dynamics of the end times. The work of their ministry includes equipping and sending out missionaries as dedicated intercessors and evangelists who work to see revival within the Church and a harvest among those searching for God. They take seriously the mandate to train believers to love Jesus and others wholeheartedly as together they go forth to preach the Word, heal the sick, serve the poor, plant houses of prayer, and proclaim the return of Jesus across the earth.
The heart of their missions base is night-and-day prayer with worship. Two figures from the Bible who inspire them in this are Anna, one of the first evangelists and intercessors in the New Testament, who prayed and fasted for over sixty years before Jesus’ first coming (Lk. 2:37), and King David who organized and paid 4,000 musicians and 288 singers to worship God night and day (1 Chr. 23:1–25:31).
They broadcast their Prayer Room 24/7 for free on their website.
