“My experience at Freshwater ministries has been one where I have felt accepted and encouraged to grow in the gift of prophecy through loving others. I have been challenged to step out in faith and prophesy even when what I am saying does not make sense to me. This has allowed me to see that the gift of prophecy operates because God is always willing to speak, and is not dependent on my own wisdom or striving. Exercising prophecy at Freshwater has allowed me to minister to others by revealing the heart of God regarding different situations.”


“I spent 6 weeks of FWM prophesy school feeling exhilarated, excited and totally scared. Excited because I felt like I had finally found what God had been preparing me for. Totally scared because I finally found what God had been preparing me for.

Cate’s teaching is clear and she brought new angles to the prophetic that I hadn’t heard before. Cate is extremely encouraging and patient. It was inspiring to experience the way she waits on the Lord and is obedient to Him. The teaching on how to bring a prophesy is fresh and solid as a rock.

The school is changing the way I bring a prophesy because I’ve learnt the Biblical way of speaking a prophesy. Which allows me to relax and know that it is more of what God is saying and less of my interpretation.

Attending the school, Cate taught me more about hearing the faintest whispers of God, as well as learning (and practising) a new level of trust. Trust in God, but trust in myself too.

It has cultivated a new desire to intimately know My Father and what’s on His heart for His people.”
