Northeast – Pastor Mark & Pastor Claudette Babin -Maine

In April of 1986, they became pastors of Celebration Center, in Fort Fairfield. Pastors Mark and Claudette are affiliated with and ordained through Kingdom Global and Pastor Larry Titus. As pastors, they have a deep desire to see the people of God fully walking out their own God-given destiny. Because of that, and the strong belief that the Word of God should have pre-eminence in Christian’s lives, they founded the Celebration Center School of Ministry, also known as CCSM, in 2006. The intention of this school is not only for those who sense God calling them into the ministry, but also for those who are wanting to delve deeper into, and have a better understanding of the Word of God. In 2011, they established their own personal ministry, Apostolic Training Ministries , of which the School of Ministry is now part of.

Northwest – Steve Shultz – Oregon
Back in the early 1990’s Steve was prophesied over by a prophet in Texas, way before the internet, that he “would be connecting the prophets by computer.” Steve says, “I thought, “What’s that about? Nothing like that is happening now. Not even anything close.”
He had experienced some prophetic dreams and had given one or two prophetic words but not much more than that. Over time, the Lord began to put him more and more into the prophetic “stream” and his prophesying started to increase.
Then he decided to take some prophetic courses through Christian International out of Florida headed up by Bishop Bill Hamon.
Later, He was invited to be on the pastoral staff of his local church in Vancouver, WA. Eventually, invitations to speak other places began to come in. One day in the Spring of 1997, Steve sat in his living room, playing on the internet and was trying to find some encouraging prophetic words to send to a few friends. He emailed some words he had found — once or twice. Eventually he had so many people wanting to be part of that list. The Elijah List was birthed and as of today, there are over 135,000 subscribers.
Currently, they have their office in Albany, Oregon, were he and his family attends the Jesus Pursuit Church in Albany, Oregon. His pastor and friend is Denny Cline, and they work splendidly together. It is a God-sent partnership between a ministry and the local church.
Steve and his wife Derene reside in Albany, Oregon and have three beautiful children.
