Maximize Your Mile Highs

Getting the most from the CAC-hosted Mile High Conference Revival 2010

In an effort to help, I’d like to present some basic and hopefully memorable tips to help you get the most out of this most special of all CAC annual events. You’ll be glad you carefully and prayerfully read this short article because it is chock full of common sense that might get overlooked due to the haste and busyness of summertime. To enjoy the highest “highs” and squeeze every drop of Holy Ghost nectar out of this precious, fleeting opportunity, we all must:

The MHCR is the leading calendar event of the CAC Master Calendar. It basically propels and defines the rest of the year of spirituality for CAC. As such, it deserves the highest rank on everyone’s personal calendar. Setting this week aside as the most important church week of the year, taking necessary time off work, deferring every possible distraction and hindrance will pay larger dividends than any other possible pursuit.

Picture a better, more heavenly-minded YOU afterward. The gap between the Christian you NOW ARE and you WANT TO BE will be sharply narrowed because of MHCR 2010. Without a vision the people perish. Picture the rapture-ready, repented, forgiving, forgiven, peaceful, loving YOU of your grandest visions! What a way to throttle forward with great gusto! Makes us alarmed to miss even ONE service, doesn’t it?! Can you see those new souls arising from the waters of baptism with glory on their faces?! New families! New children! New youth! In Jesus’ Name!

Plan ahead how you can soak in the Word of God as it’s sung, preached, and ministered. I suggest a notebook already prepared with pages marked with names of the speakers of the day so you can quickly write in titles and scripture references without unnecessary distraction or delay. Also, in advance, be very aware of your ministry placement, schedule, and responsibilities during the MHCR. Don’t leave anything to chance or fate. Communicate clearly with ministry directors and other leaders so you know exactly the what, when, where, and how of every expectation in your position(s) of service.

Play YOUR part. This is where unity reigns supreme! How good and how pleasant it is! No clashing discord here. No loose lips or sinking battle ships. At CAC, we’re all in this together! Prayerfully and lovingly respond to every resistance and opposition. (They’re always present!) Keep your emotional baggage truck bed raised so that every offense slides right off into the landfill (the dump) where it belongs. Remember, the Bible says “No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.” (1 Peter 3.9, MSG) Alone and on our own, let’s get in tune with the Holy Ghost and, suddenly, we’re all a heavenly choir singing in angelic harmony!

The dictionary says this means “to take the chance to gain advantage from.” When some other legitimate conflict gets in the way of attending or benefitting from the MHCR, remember this: It’s only once-a-year, and, in many respects, once-in-a-lifetime! Our guest speakers have heard from God and will be delivering messages that will only be heard before a live audience in their present form only once. This is our very best opportunity to invite guests, regardless of how many times we’ve already done so, or how unlikely their acceptance may be. Take advantage of MHCR 2010!

It’s decision time. Right now, let us all choose to get the maximum benefit from this divinely orchestrated, heaven-sent Revival/Campmeeting/Conference.

The highest highs await those who choose to maximize!

Senior Pastor Don Haymon II began his journey as a minister when he was raised in the home of the founder of Calvary Apostolic Church—his father. In 1986 he concluded a four-year internship under his father as associate pastor. It was at that time that he received his ordination certificate as a minister of the gospel. He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.

  1. Thank you for this article. It put the proper perspective on why we do all that we do in the weeks leading up to the MHCR. Looking forward to seeing souls added to the Kingdom next week…in Jesus’ Name!
