Apostle Matthew has been in ordained ministry for 15 years. He is the son of the founding Pastors of Dominion Church International, Jerry & Martha Hester, and has dedicated his life to seeing the body of Christ grow into its identity in Christ. Pastor Megan flows with an accurate prophetic anointing and carries a tremendous heart of compassion and counsel for the people of God. In addition to ministering locally, Apostle Matthew travels both national and internationally serving the body of Christ. He has authored four books and many audio series to equip the body of Christ. They reside in Greer, SC with their four children: Judah, Gabriel, Eliana, and Ava.A word from our Pastors –
We are so glad that you are here. Our prayer is that you will have an encounter with the Lord at Dominion. We also pray that you leave with a better understanding of God’s will for your life. As we praise and worship the Lord and as we look into His Word, we pray for a fresh revelation of who we are in Jesus Christ. We pray that you are blessed while you are here!
We are exuberant and joyful in our praise and worship. We sing and celebrate the Lord – we can be loud! And we shout sometimes. And we dance sometimes. Don’t let these things bother you! These are just our expressions of love for the Lord. We don’t mean for you to be uncomfortable if you are not used to this kind of worship. And we don’t expect everyone to be like us. So be at peace – we receive you just like you are. Thanks for not being offended with the way that we praise and worship the Lord.
We are a Kingdom Embassy in various covenantal relationships within the Dominion Network. We believe in the present reality of the gifts of the Spirit. We flow in the gift of prophecy, believe in God for an accurate word of encouragement for you. These words flow from the Spirit of God and are in no way connected with psychics. If you receive a word of prophecy at Dominion, you will be given a compact disc of that prophetic word. We encourage you to submit it to your Pastor or spiritual elder for insight and interpretation. In our bookstore we offer an abundance of materials on the Kingdom and Present Truth revelation that is in the church of Jesus Christ today.
You may hear some of us praying in tongues during praise and worship and during prophetic ministry time. This is commonly called Praying in the Spirit. Don’t be alarmed or frightened by that! We believe in the present day infilling of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of a prayer language that flows from the Spirit of God. Don’t worry – we are not going to force this on you. There may be lots of things at Dominion that will be new to you. We ask you to focus on the Lord and trust Him to minister to you while you are here! Let’s open our hearts before Him and lift up His name together!You are a blessing, and we are glad you are here! Apostle Matthew & Pastor Megan Hester
