California, San Diego- Bill and Michelle Winder

By Global Local Chapter Directors, USA Chapter Directors

Bill & Michelle Winder, both native Californians, live in Carlsbad, a beautiful town in north coastal San Diego.  At a God-appointed meeting in Hollywood in 2010, Michelle met Karen Covell. Karen was hosting a meeting for children in ‘The Industry’ and Michelle had been invited up to lead worship. After a short conversation in which Karen explained the vision of Hollywood Prayer Network, she asked Michelle to pray about starting a Chapter in San Diego.

Here is the rest of the story, directly from Michelle:
I immediately declined as my time was already consumed with ministry and Real Estate. Karen continued to ask every few months until one day, while driving on the I-5 I realized it might be God asking- so, as was often my mo, I ‘made a deal’ with God. If He would provide a partner to help, I would do it ‘temporarily’ until someone with a passion for Hollywood stepped up. 12 minutes later I walked into my home and my husband Bill, a true prayer-warrior, said, “Would you start an HPN Chapter if I were to partner with you?” I laughed at how God always calls my bluff.  I agreed and Bill & I began an adventure that we’re still enjoying today, 12 years later! We rally an amazing team of prayer warriors “outside the camp” as God leads. Please pray about joining us!
