Michelle & Bill Winder
We are committed to HPN’s vision and purpose. We are witnessing the mighty move of God, both in Hollywood AND in San Diego County as we unite our hearts in prayer on behalf of those in the entertainment industry who don’t yet know Him and for direction for those who do.
Please contact us if you are in the San Diego area and would like to join our prayer team or if you are in the entertainment industry and would like for us to pray for you. You can be involved as much or as little as you like. We invite all individuals, groups and churches to pray for Hollywood…the world’s most influential mission field.
We take about three field trips per year in addition to quarterly meetings.
Prayer is not ‘all we can do’ – it is ‘a privilege we can all do!’
Let’s do it together!
Read an excerpt below of a recent interview with Bill & Michelle Winder:
Michelle & Bill, San Diego Chapter Directors of the Hollywood Prayer Network, believe there is no such thing as an average Christian. Frequently asked what they do, Michelle recently responded:
“As God’s precious children, we are made in His image: creative, compassionate and fearless. Just those 3 attributes can manifest in SO many different ways! We love to encourage and connect others so they’ll realize & live out their potential, just as our Good Good Father intended for each of us!
As followers of Jesus, there’s nothing normal about our lives- we walk on uncharted waters, bringing the light, as we go into dark places to fish. We not only don’t fit in a box, we don’t even know there IS a box!!”
Together, Bill & Michelle write studies and speak to groups answering tough questions that often come up in their one on one ministries. They both have a heart for victims and perpetrators. They are currently teaching 4 different 5 week series in the SoCal area:
1. Believing God, Even When You Don’t Feel Like It
2. Truth vs Fact: Shifting Paradigms
3. Hearing God in a Noisy World
All of their studies are backed up with Scripture. When asked about it, Michelle replied, “People like to see things in print- and every question is answered in God’s Word- I like to be able to show them. I used to go to every conference and read every book recommended- then one day, the Lord spoke to me and asked me what ‘standard’ I use to make sure what I was hearing was truth. I immediately responded, ‘Your Word of course’ to which He responded, ‘then why don’t you spend that extra time in My Word? When you know the real thing, the counterfeit will be obvious.’
This couple, who have been together for 37 years, has a history with the Lord which has caused them to depend on Him for everything. After their daughter’s recent miraculous healing of a broken back, Michelle says, “While I wouldn’t wish the toughest times in my life on my worst enemy, I also wouldn’t trade them for anything. Those are the times that have gained me an intimacy with the Lord that most people will never know.”
I find it hard to believe that she has a ‘worst enemy.’
