The Lord uses Rodney and his family to help those in the Body of Christ to fulfill their God-given destiny through empowering them with the anointed Word of God. Prophetically seeing what is holding back a church, region, or individual from God's best, then helping them to the next level. He strongly believes in teamwork, that no one person is the big deal! That we have inherited the current mindset of what church is; that we have to get back to utilizing the Fivefold ministry, the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. That there is only one Head of the Church and that is Christ.
He believes that America is on the brink of a major shaking. That God is now preparing His Church; moving people into position for a Last Days harvest like has never been seen before. That this last great move of God is a move of the Body of Christ and not a one-man-show. The Lord is building His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
