About Kim Maas
PROPHET | PREACHER | MENTOR
For twenty-two years I was a professional nurse until I had a radical encounter with the Holy Spirit on March 22, 1994. The Lord led me to leave my career and serve God full-time. Since then I’ve been privileged to serve as a pastor in a local church for twelve years, I’ve written a few books that people tell me are good (I’ll take their word for it), I’ve traveled to some faraway places and seen our God do some amazing things. I’ve preached a heck of a lot of sermons, too, but who’s counting?
What really sets me on fire inside is helping men and women hear more clearly the voice of God and seeing them start to take steps forward with Him. There’s nothing like the feeling of knowing that you’re in God’s will and you’re moving forward, full of the Holy Spirit. So that’s what I do, what I work to do: to help anyone who’s willing to listen to move. Forward. With God.
About My Ministry
I’m a times-and-seasons prophet. I love personal prophetic ministry — who doesn’t like a timely word? — but the main prophetic charge on my life is to discern the season in which the Church and the world find themselves, and to speak into that season according to what I hear from the Holy Spirit.
The course of my own life was changed upon hearing the voice of God. The person I’ve become and the path I’ve followed has been continuously defined and refined by prophetic revelation. The call on my life compels me every day. I burn with a passion for God’s people to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church, to decipher the times and seasons and to strategize for the future in order to see God’s kingdom come and will be done.
In 1984, in the darkest hour of my life, without any provocation, understanding or expectation, in a time when I couldn’t have been further from my faith, I heard the voice of God for the first time. It was so loud. I believe it was audible. The words were clear and distinct. I had not known that the Lord could speak to me. In all my early years of Sunday school, I had never once been taught that God speaks. It was astonishing, frightening and inescapable. His words brought me face to face with the most monumental choice of my entire life to that point. I made my choice. I chose Him. In response, God saved my life and my marriage. It was a miracle and that same miracle happens every time one of God’s kids hears His voice for the first time. It’s a humbling thing to co-labor with the Lord in seeing this happen.
When I minister, I come with a plan and I’m always watching for what the Holy Spirit wants to do in the moment. I enjoy encountering God with my mind and my heart and it’s a constant thread in my ministry as well. God wants us to think well and to feel deeply.
I love dragonflies.
God is moving on the earth, through all his people, not a single denomination. All have something to contribute. All are needed in this hour. Of this I am convinced and the Dragonfly keeps this in remembrance for me. I am not much of a mystic seeing symbols and signs in everything, everywhere, all the time. However, I believe God gives signs and uses symbols, dreams and visions to convey messages to his people.Why a dragonfly? It certainly isn’t a very traditional or religious symbol to mark service to God or what I mention above. But I didn’t choose it. In a vision during a time of prayer, a brightly hued enormous dragonfly flew to my feet. I climbed on its back and it flew to a field filled with flowers. I knew we were to gather pollen. Moving from flower to flower, I gathered with my arms until I was covered in bright mustard colored pollen. I was laughing and joyful, and the Lord said, “It’s time for cross-pollination.” The vision ended.
As is my practice when I experience a phenomenon like this, I tuck it away to ponder, pray, and wait for greater interpretation and understanding of how it applies to my life. Within weeks, I was introduced to key leaders in other streams of the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements and was invited to participate in various events and studies. I was initially invited because of my Foursquare affiliation and further invited because I had embraced God’s word to me. Cross-pollination had begun and I see it continuing around the world today.
