The visionary of Powerhouse Ministries, Apostle Paulette Boschmans has established Deborah Arise, consisting of a group of women of God, from various churches in the Netherlands who come together and set up a project, to stand together for both women and men to support them to find their identity and to achieve their destination in Christ.

Our mission is based on the scripture Isaiah 61:1

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favour

Powerhouse Ministries aspires to help each other understand the character of God through a solid foundation of instructions in God’s Living Word. As we teach the importance of prayer and listening to the voice of God, we aim to bring one to a personal relationship with Him. Our objective is to develop a sensitiveness to the Holy Spirit – to be able to understand Him and His purpose on this earth – by practicing the gifts of the Spirit and experiencing His work in our midst.

Using His Truth we help each individual to apply biblical principals in their everyday life. Our ultimate goal is to partner with families to build a spiritual foundation that will, in God’s timing, lead one to know , love and obey God – what we refer to as The Disciple’s Path. Therefore we train each person to have an awareness and appreciation of God’s heart towards other people and their cultures and to become disciples of His Gospel.
