New Ministry Launches Today

Author and speaker, Kimberlee Mendoza had been a Christian for almost thirty-three years, and was active in ministry for almost all of it. She went to church regularly and tried to live a godly life, and yet, she still struggled with the same sins over and over and never seemed to be any closer to God than before.

Then she was given a book called, The Cross and the Switchblade. The book is a true story about a man named David Wilkerson, who set out save the gangs of New York City, and eventually spurned a worldwide organization (Teen Challenge) that saves thousands of lives each year to this day.

How did he do it? The answer was simple—time. He made a decision one day to turn off the TV and just spend time with God in prayer. And from that birthed this enormous ministry.

Kimberlee was intrigued by the idea, and decided to take the “Wilkerson Challenge” herself. She turned off her TV and tuned out the Internet for two weeks. And revival began to happen in her life. Instantly, she saw a change in her walk with God, in her family, and in her marriage. She is now a certified minister with a passion to give back what she had learned—to show other Christians how to get fired up in their faith. is a ministry that was created for one purpose, to get Christians excited about their faith again. (Torrid, meaning hot and burning, and faith, our walk with God.) On this website is a challenge to every believer to take the “Wilkerson Challenge.” There will also be daily verses of encouragement, blogs, sermons, skits, a place for prayer requests, and more.

Ms. Mendoza believes that revival starts one life at a time. “If you want to see growth in your life, then you have to start in the most basic place—time with God,” she said. “Becoming too busy for regular devotion time is a common pitfall for modern Christians. But even in our busiest times we managed to find time to eat, because we know that if we don’t eat that our bodies will eventually grow weak and die. The same is true of the spiritual self. If we don’t feed our spiritual body, it will eventually grow weak and die.”

Hebrews 11:6b “He rewards those who sincerely seek Him.”

So check out this new website, which launches August 23, and watch your faith ignite!
