Occupy Heaven – Multiply Hope A Texas Movement and Conferences
Raising Ministers in Texas for a Heavenly Mission Amidst Technological Marvels
In a world captivated by technology, where pioneers like Elon Musk lead the charge toward interplanetary exploration, our imaginations are drawn to the stars. This global excitement, especially resonant in Texas – home to space exploration endeavors – sets a backdrop for our spiritual mission. The Christian Leaders Institute has thousands of students, graduates, and ordained ministers in Texas who are on a mission to invite people to Occupy Heaven (CLI)

For the next two years, the CLI is promoting the theme “Occupy Heaven – Multiply Hope.” This theme is a reminder for Texans to balance their admiration for Mars exploration with the eternal promises of Heaven. It invites Texans to engage in their true mission: spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and offering the joy of salvation and heavenly citizenship.
