Chris Walker interviews Dave McKenna
I’m here with Dave McKenna, and we’re gathering stoies about how Dunamis has affected our lives and ministries. So, Dave, I’d like you to share a little bit about your story, about how you found your way into Dunamis, and about what impact that has had on your ministry.
A Life-Changing Brochure
I found my way here because of a brochure that arrived on my desk about the Dunamis meeting in Black Mountain, North Carolina in 1996, and I attended that meeting. It was a life-changing experience for me.
Identifying, Understanding, and Overcoming Spiritual Opposition
In my business, I knew I was having spiritual opposition to some of the things that were going on and I had no answers. But when I went to the Dunamis meeting I got answers; I got to where I could understand the work that was going on, understand the strongholds that were against me, and I was able to then move forward from there and move beyond where I was.
Now, as I’ve heard some of your story before, you’re from the way Eastern part of Canada, and you drove all the way to Black Mountain, NC to attend?
Well, actually I flew to Atlanta.
Well, you flew, but still you travelled a long distance in order to come because of that curiosity as to how to deal with that spiritual oppositon. And out of that, it gave you a wonderful theological grid to help understand and then engage it?
A Life-Changing Shift in Perspective
Yes. It was life-changing. When I read the Bible I read it very differently. I had an understanding of the ministry of Jesus in a way I never had before, and everything came more into context.
Into much sharper clarity, as well?
