Transition into a Mission

2011: Our Transition into a Mission

Dear friends and family,

I wanted to enlighten you with the latest happenings of our little family. As I hope most of you all know the Lord blessed Aimee and I with a wonderful baby girl, Liberty Reign Atkins. Liberty was birthed October 26th, at 8lbs 9oz. and 21″ inches long. She was definitely the highlight of 2010. We love what the Lord has taught us in the past year, while setting us into a launching position for transition in this New Year.

The transition being, as of January 15th 2011, we moved to the bay area to plug into the Convergence House of Prayer in Fremont! It has been our dream for a long time to join a House of Prayer and we have taken a huge first step of faith to obtain it! We will continue to step out in faith in order to chase after the dreams that the Lord has planted in each of our hearts.

Let us fill you in as best as we can…

What is the Convergence House of Prayer? (cHOP)

The cHOP has a vision to establish individuals in partnership with Christ through prayer and worship modeled after the Tabernacle of David (1Chr. 22-24). Our desire is to partner with God in becoming a perpetual worship and prayer center in our region linking His presence and the supernatural lifestyle 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What will we be doing?

Aimee is pursuing her gifts in worship while singing in the Prayer Room on worship sets: Devotionals, Worship With the Word, and Intercession. I will be an Intercessory Missionary: ministering in prayer, fasting, worship, and service in the House of Prayer. Serving 15+ hours in the prayer room as well as ministering at least 5 hours of “helps” each week. My focus will be to grow in the Love and Knowledge of God, while being committed to the forerunner message of preparing the way of the Lord.

We will both be taking courses from the Convergence Supernatural School of Ministry (CSSM). CSSM is the convergence of two streams, using both the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry DVD series as well as curriculum from the International House of Prayer University. Believing that a supernatural lifestyle stems from and is fueled by intimacy with God.

We also know that the Lord will be opening up new doors for us to minister in, as this House of Prayer just launched officially January 2011. Our heart is to serve and be used by Him in a way that will impact those around us the most. We will also be raising, Liberty, in the prayer room, establishing a deep foundation in the love of Jesus in her.

How can you help?

Just as missionaries overseas require financial support for their needs so that they can give 100% of their time to do good works of justice and minister to His people; we too will need financial support. Our heart is to lead a lifestyle of full time missions. Our prayer in this matter of giving is 2 Cor. 9:6-15: “Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (v7).” We know it is, “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food (v10)”, and we ask, if the Lord wills it, that some of your seed would be sown towards us for our bread so that we may join in unity and watch Him, “multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God (v10-11).”


We thank you for taking the time to read this and pray that His Spirit will lead you with what you have purposed in your heart. We know that your support will help position us better to attain a holy and righteous lifestyle that is pleasing to our Lord, Jesus the Christ. If anything, lift us up in prayer and petition that the Lord leads us and guides us through this transition to a position of full time mission.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick, Aimee, and Liberty Atkins

  • Patrick,
    I am stirred and excited to hear that the ministry that you and Aimee (& Liberty)are entering into is a “House of Prayer”. I saw the anointing on you both (even though in infant stages) when you were in a “tip of the arrow” position at the S.H.O.P.
    I have no doubt that this is another step to continue using and maturing those gifts…I know that you have grown even more since that past season. It was such a privilege to see both of your Pastors’ Hearts giftings in action in that season…And now you add a father and mothers heart! You both embody so many of the treasured strengths of your parents, yet with flavors and giftings all your own…you carry that “next generation” anointing!
    As a member of the Body of Christ and a resident of California, thank you for CHOOSING to follow Him and walk down this path for this appointed season.
    I love you so much and am soooo proud of you both!!!

  • Wow! Thank you so much Heidi for the encouragement! That really meant a lot to both Aimee and I. We love you too and will keep you posted on this new journey.



  • Super cool to have you guys join the team! It’s still amazing to me that God is stirring this convergence house message in others enough to plant here with us and RUN with us! exciting!

  • Thanks Kindsey! Glad to be apart of such a dynamic team! The message of cHOP is awesome and totally lines up with our dna…easy decision to uproot and plant where the Lord is building something bigger than us.

  • So excited to have you and Aimee with us at cHOP! It’s so exciting when people come from other places to run with this vision God has given to us for the Bay Area. May God bless you and your family beyond all that you could ever hope or imagine!
