Our purpose is to preach the gospel of the kingdom. It’s God’s clear command to His church to preach the gospel to all creation. Jesus Christ taught us how to pray saying, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We are called to bring the kingdom of heaven here to earth and to repair the breach. Our ministry’s name reveals our character and function as followers of Christ. Forerunners are ahead of the tide and prepare the way for others to enter in. Just as John the Baptist was a forerunner to Christ, we believe that our calling is to prepare the way so that the hearts of people will be ready for the Lord’s return. Jesus declares that all who believe in Him will do the works that He has done, but He does not stop there. He continues to exhort that we will do EVEN GREATER THINGS in His name as He gives the power and wisdom to carry it out. We have been commissioned to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils so that the Father will be glorified in every nation, tribe, and tongue.



The shift is upon us! We are so excited to share our vision with you as we continue to grow and glorify God. We are in a time of transition where the Father is pouring out His presence and divine provision to move us into our next season of growth and expansion. Our vision is to teach and equip the people of God to carry out His ministry in Spirit and Truth. Our main focus is to turn converts into disciples and teach Scripture like it was taught by Christ, His Apostles, and their earliest students. We intend to use media and other platforms to reach the world and spread the Word of peace to all those who desire a closer encounter with God. The heart of God is to see all of creation restored and reconnected with Him. He calls His people to lay down their lives to make that vision a reality. Our vision is to answer that call with a surrendered and joyful “yes!” We pray that the Father will give each of you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know Him better.

“Get ready the bridegroom is coming.”



Evangelist Michael J. Petro is the Founder and Head Pastor of Forerunner International, based in Southern California. He is a prophetic evangelist, whom the Lord has called to trumpet the message of “Holiness” and “Awake, the Bridegroom is coming.”

Many signs, wonders, and miracles manifest plainly at Michael’s conferences. People receive healing from various diseases, including cancer, mental illnesses, deafness, blindness, HIV, and paralysis to name a few. Many experience heavenly visitations and spiritual encounters with our Lord. Michael has led these major conferences in over fifty countries, demonstrating of the power of God by the true spiritual Word understood from the Hebraic foundations, which is a message that parallels the teachings of the Early Church Fathers prior to 325 A.D.

The next move of God where forerunners will take the church through the veil, 'an apocalypse' preparing her for the worldwide outpouring of the glory of God is explained in his book “Access Behind The Veil, The Coming Glory.”
