Paul and Pamela Smith were called specifically to the USA in 1996 from the U.K. They have apostolic anointing. Pamela and Paul function in the five fold gifting. Pamela has traveled to different countries as an evangelist with Paul's full support. Their respective gifting complement each other. In the beginning words of Knowledge were given where to live in the greater Seattle area as Missionaries. Starting with Woodinville, Bothell, Kenmore, Edmonds, Lynwood, Mukilteo and Everett. we have now fulfilled all these places and are on the next adventure of bringing the Kingdom and discipling people in Granite Falls area.
Pamela and Paul were invited to speak at Seattle Revival Center before its new location down I405 exit 9. Revival is dear to their hearts!
Paul is a dedicated, professional computer engineer, full of faith, husband to Pamela and step-dad to three grown up children and Grandfather of four. Paul has strong gifts of administration, faith, and the business world through computers.
Pamela trained at Seattle Bible College and has a certificate in Biblical Studies.
Practical Ministry from Sonrise School of the Supernatural. An international Certificate as a Chaplain in levels 1-3.
Extensive training over the years in prayer ministry, inner healing and deliverance.
They have a passion to see people saved, healed, delivered and set free to be all that they can be through the power and strength of the Holy Spirit. Pamela say's "We did not know when God brought us here that the North West Pacific is classed as the least church-ed area in Seattle, but God knew"!
Much has been learned about the area, the country and the church culture here during the last twenty years, becoming citizens 2015. They recognize there needs to be a tsunami of the real Love of God released in this NW pacific area, not just church going, but a committed, loyal, sincere, life transforming love combined with discipleship as unto The Lord. They believe church is not a business money making enterprise. However, part of loving is giving and honoring the leaders through tithes and offerings. We do not believe in building bigger buildings to prove we are successful, but to facilitate Isaiah 58 and 61 and then to pay the bills and to give. We live to give and we LOVE TO GIVE. Having traveled and seen different styles of church around the globe, we recognize that there is an American church in the business style, here rather than a church in America. We are called to build The Kingdom of God and be repairers of broken down walls. Is.61; foreigners will rebuild your broken cities, that's us amongst others whom God has brought here.
Paul and Pamela take a Kingdom of God approach to their work, not a denominational one and do not seek to build profit for themselves, but to build the Kingdom of God and help each person fulfill their God given destiny.
Most churches seem to want their congregations to serve their pastors ministry, however, the Bible teaches that the five-fold anointing is to teach/train the congregation not the other way around. This produces mature disciples who in turn can go and make disciples.

Many Christian leaders have taken this verse out of context and elevated these five roles above their rightful place. They emphasize the importance of these offices in a local church – which is certainly true – but often serve their own interests and need for power and recognition while denying others – the “laity” – any kind of involvement in church government. Others discard the verse altogether, claiming that Paul is speaking in the apostolic age which has long passed, so that his words are not relevant to us at all any more. It is therefore of utmost importance to get a biblical understanding of the five-fold ministry, so that our churches will be healthy and functioning according to the will and plan of God.
There are plenty of large churches to go to, but our task is for the smaller church, the house/home church rather like in the Acts of the Apostles. This facilitates, discipleship, mentoring, loving at a deep level. When we have filled up our house, we will have someone else trained and ready to fill their house and on it goes. The money is better utilized than supporting a huge building.
Paul and Pamela have started a house church situated in Granite Falls area, north of Seattle called 'The Upper Room. It is for those who like small churches and who want to be discipled and mentored. We move in the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit and you will be trained to too. Through a vision given to Pamela approximately 30 years ago she was told house churches were the future of the church just as in the New Testament. That very weekend her pastor John Sloan had bought Peter Wagner's book, "the future of the church - house church," with the endorsement of her pastor at that time, home church is dear to their hearts.
Pamela planted and ran a single parent for two years which her pastor said was really a home church, incorporating, signs and wonders, salvations and lives healed and changed. (Then they were called to USA and the nations).
Since coming to the USA we have been a ministry called "the King'sFisherMinistries" teaching, speaking, discipling, delivering and encouraging people to be all that God has called them to be. We have an Isaiah 61 anointing and calling.
