About this Ministry



Power of GOD ministry founder, John S. Lanphear, has been given many "down-loads from God" as he calls them!  John is a dedicated servant of the King of the Universe and is being lead by the Holy Spirit  into more direct ministry for God!

John and his family, which consist of his wife Mindy, two daughters Heather and Hannah, and son David, are members of the Otsego Michigan Seventh Day Adventist Church that hold services every Sabbath (Saturday) morning. John is the head elder of this church who frequently preaches as well as helps direct their youth/young adult Sabbath School class.  The Tools on this web site are being developed and used in this church to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the surrounding area!

John is also the president of Lanphear Tool Works, Inc. which he founded in 1994.  Between marketing his patented ergonomic workstations as seen on his web site www.LTW1.com , developing numerous other inventions that God has "down-loaded" to him, John has been consumed with growing this company as God lead him and his wife.  Please pray that God keeps blessing this business in ways that allow John to be freed up to work more directly for God!

Please also pray for this ministry and all of the people who are supporting it in many ways.  Thank you and may we see our Lord and Savior soon and have Him find us diligently working for Him when He comes!!!


Christís method alone will give true success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs, and won their confidence. Then He bade them, "Follow Me."--The Ministry of Healing, p. 143. {ChS 119.3} -emphasis added

Let the workers go from house to house, opening the Bible to the people, circulating the publications, telling others of the light that has blessed their own souls.--Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 123. {ChS 114.1}

By personal labor reach those around you. Become acquainted with them. Preaching will not do the work that needs to be done. Angels of God attend you to the dwellings of those you visit. This work cannot be done by proxy. Money lent or given will not accomplish it. Sermons will not do it. By visiting the people, talking, praying, sympathizing with them, you will win hearts. This is the highest missionary work that you can do. To do it, you will need resolute, persevering faith, unwearying patience, and a deep love for souls.--Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 41. {ChS 117.5}

A Reformatory Movement  In visions of the night, representations passed before me of a great reformatory movement among Godís people. Many were praising God. The sick were healed, and other miracles were wrought. A spirit of intercession was seen, even as was manifested before the great Day of Pentecost. Hundreds and thousands were seen visiting families and opening before them the word of God. Hearts were convicted by the power of the Holy Spirit, and a spirit of genuine conversion was manifest. On every side doors were thrown open to the proclamation of the truth. The world seemed to be lightened with the heavenly influence. Great blessings were received by the true and humble people of God. --Testimonies, vol. 9, p. 126  Emphasis Supplied

It is in doing Christís work that the church has the promise of His presence. Go teach all nations, He said;"and, lo,I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."(Matt.28:18-20)To take His yoke is one of the first conditions of receiving His power. The very life of the church depends upon her faithfulness in fulfilling the Lordís commission. To neglect this work is surely to invite spiritual feebleness and decay. Where there is no active labor for others, love wanes, and faith grows dim. Quote from The Desire of Ages p.825-
