What’s In A Name?
Good day and greetings in the strong name of Jesus! On behalf of the Dan Bohi Ministries Association, I want to take this opportunity to share with you some exciting news that has been in the works for many months. It is my pleasure to announce that Dan Bohi Ministries Association has changed its name to Becoming Love Ministries Association (#becomingLOVE Ministries).
This should be no surprise for many of you because this has been more than a name to Dan and the team: Becoming Love has become a lifestyle that influences us and others daily.
It is not easy to rename an organization, but this name change has come with little to no resistance. This is what we are, what we desire, and what we want to become as we live and have our being in this world.
Here are the keys that #becomingLOVE Ministries Association has embraced as we have prayed and strategized over this change:
First, we want our name to support the position and reflect the essence of this ministry. Jesus is the perfect example of #becomingLOVE. No greater love has ever been expressed: He laid down His life that we might have life and life eternal.
Second, we want to be relevant. There is no greater need in our world today than to demonstrate what it looks like to live out #becomingLOVE as expressed in I Corinthians 13. This is the message that we as believers must demonstrate in our everyday lives and this would be impossible without being filled with and led by Holy Spirit.
Thirdly, we want our name to be distinctive. We think we have hit the mark, the distinctive characteristic of love as modeled by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am overwhelmed by the thought that He emptied himself and became obedient unto death so that we might have relationship with Abba Father. This is at the core of #becomingLOVE Ministries.
Lastly, we want it to be sustainable. As we continue to grow and expand our global focus, we understand that we must position ourselves to sustain a name that is multi-generational and lives beyond our founder and ministry team.
We are confident it encompasses our mission: “A calling to awaken the church of Jesus Christ to the power, purity, and freedom of the Spirit-Filled life, found, realized, experienced and exhibited in the lives of believers in the Book of Acts”.
We believe this is carefully accomplished in #becomingLOVE Ministries Association.
We are deeply grateful for your continued prayers and support as we move into this new chapter of our ministry.
We look forward to how the Lord will expand the footprint of the Kingdom as we stand together.
Blessings and Shalom to each of you,
Executive Director, Becoming Love Ministries
