John and Dawna Thomas were radically saved out of the drug culture in 1996. Personally mentored by John Paul Jackson, they have been on staff or worked alongside Streams Ministries since 2004. After John Paul passed away John began to work more closely with the Streams leadership and in 2016 was asked to become the President of Streams Ministries International.
With John's background as a pastor and minister in various settings around the world, John has a unique perspective on prophetic ministry and the global body of Christ. He desires to see the Church rise up in her authority and in the full power of the Holy Spirit, and his passion for God’s heart undergirds everything he does. He is radically committed to help the Bride of Christ respond with fervent devotion to the One who called her.
Charity is passionate about the prophetic and creativity. She loves being part of igniting creative and pioneering ways of releasing God’s Spirit in the Church and through mission. She is the Director of Streams Creative House with Streams Ministries International teaching and ministering in different nations. Her heart and calling are to help believers explore God though a depth of relationship, develop maturity through their revelatory gifts and see restoration and understanding of the creativity of God released to transform culture.
Through her first book and course ‘Limitless: God’s Creative Mandate for His People’, her newest book 'Creative Fusion' and various other teachings she aims to ignite the creative DNA gifted to God’s people wherever God sends her. Charity lives in Inverness, in the Highlands of Scotland, and is married to Alan with two daughters Sasha and Rhianna who are a great inspiration on the journey.
Having grown up in the American West, roaming free in wild, open places, Katie’s sense of adventure has carried her through varied journeys of the heart. Passion runs deep within her for worship, especially exploratory, innovative expressions of worship.
Katie has been involved with numerous creative outreaches, including the annual Burning Man event in Nevada, dream interpretation events at local coffee houses and at the Sundance Film Festival. She has extensive experience with inner healing ministry, is an encourager, and has a strong desire to see others grasp the legitimacy of their identity and unique design to walk into who their Creator designed them to be.
Katie and her husband, Rob, recently co-founded and launched Quest Academy, an innovative model of creative education for school-aged children in Idaho where they currently reside.
Rob Mazza has spent much of his life living in proximity to natural, often wild places. The presence of God sought out in these spaces brought him closer to the creation story, its drama, creative wonder and seventh day awe. From this space, Rob has been motivated to write prose, create furniture, counsel and teach, craft jewelry and ignite communal experiences. This, from a God who set Adam in a garden with a plethora of resources and said, “Expand.”
Rob currently resides in Idaho with his beautiful wife, Katie.
When it comes to ministry, Robyn has no greater passion than worship and the prophetic. When she leads worship, she is always looking to follow the heart of God that will usher in His presence to allow life-changing encounters. Having been in prophetic ministry for twelve years, Robyn has had the privilege of serving on numerous prophetic teams and equipping others to walk in a fuller understanding of their revelatory gift. She is passionate about all things creative ... from singing, playing piano and writing songs, to drawing, painting and photography. "I know there is a deep creative well that we have barely scratched the surface of and I am hungry to discover more!"
Robyn is currently a teacher and trainer for the Streams Ministries South African Training Centre. She loves interpreting dreams with her husband, Ian, and raising their beautiful little girl, Katherine, who is the light of their lives, as well as her amazing family who is involved in all that they do.
Andrea (Sandford) Bareither comes from a rich spiritual heritage of ministry and serving Jesus. Through her variety of unique life experiences in creativity, inner healing, the prophetic, worship, dream interpretation, evangelism and intercession, she has a passion for a whole-hearted pursuit of God through the release of His creative nature in all aspects of our lives and ministry. She is a prophetic artist and the author of “Finding the Light and Easy Yoke”, a book about spiritual sensitivity and burden bearing.
Frank and Carrie are thankful for the years in which they have been playing in creation, and the many roles in family, work, and community. They are very excited about their role in leading intercession for Streams Creative House - in the good mystery, praying for eternity and the coming of Christ. They invite you to come and play!
‘’Christ plays in ten thousand places.
Lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not His, to a Father through the features of men’s faces..’
