Some emails we have received about Brant 

There are various accounts of Shekinah Fellowship floating around. Here is one account that I would trust to be accurate 

Adulating Brant?

Brant Baker taught others to love and to follow Jesus Christ!

“A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous.”

Brant Baker stepped out in faith and was vulnerable as he did something other then being passive.

“Being the first follower is an under appreciated form of leadership; the first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader.” 

Some felt that Brant was a nut as he shared his vision and sought to obtain it.

“A movement must be public… Everyone needs to see the followers.”

Brant walked out in front of everyone and yielded to the Holy Spirit.

“As more people jump in, it’s no longer risky …they won’t stand out, they won’t be ridiculed.”

Soon Shekinah Fellowship existed.

“Remember the importance of nurturing your first few followers as equals.”

Some where along the line Brant had forgotten that, as some have reflectively expressed in their Shekinah Fellowship stories.

“The biggest lesson here . . . leadership is over-glorified… The best way to make a movement, if you really care, is to courageously follow and show the others how to follow.”

Brant taught all to follow Jesus, he would say, "Brant Baker has nothing to offer you, I have nothing to do with this."

“When you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to stand up and join in.”

Hundreds did join in with Brant Baker at Shekinah Fellowship!

What have you done? What are you doing? How many people have you personally impacted  for Jesus Christ? You know you can if you want to...

 Luke 10:3
Go your ways: behold, I send you...

 Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

 Luke 9:60
Jesus said unto him,...but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

 Luke 9:2
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

 John 15:8
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

Dance for Jesus! They will come...and they too will dance for Jesus...
But you must begin to dance even if no one else is dancing. Dance! They will see you and they will come.

 John 4:29
Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?”

Matthew 5:13
Ye are the salt of the earth...

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

So dance the dance of  Jesus Christ before others that they may see your light and come to the feast of the Lamb. Dance!

 Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Those who won't dance will be what?

 Acts 16:31
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

I use the metaphor of dance for spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. When you step out in faith to spread the gospel message God will accompany your efforts. As a result people will be impacted by you through Him.

  2 Corinthians 6:1
We then, as workers together with him...

With Him.
