Led by an 18-year-old girl, teenagers worshiped in a parking lot after attending a 3-hour service. They couldn’t get enough of God.
Roar Apostolic Network and Roar Church Texarkana are founded and led by Joe Joe Dawson. Joe Joe is married to the love of his life, Autumn Dawson, and they have three children: Malachi, Judah, and Ezra. Their desire is to see every believer fulfill their God-given destiny and live life to the fullest in God.
Moreover, Joe Joe is a visionary leader who equips believers to fulfill the call that God has put inside them. Besides that, his heart’s desire is for this nation to be awakened and for each individual to experience personal rejuvenation. God is inviting believers to a deeper level of connection with him, and Joe’s passion is to see that happen.
And it seems that their daughter, Malachi, lived for this at a very young age.
One day in high school, God opened Malachi’s heart to His purpose.

“As I was walking through high school, I could tell that there was this deep sadness and depression looming over people. And I realized that something was wrong. I could see the enemy working through our generation. But recently, I feel like the Lord is calling that generation back to life,” Malachi said.
However, she admitted that even when she was turning fifteen years old, God had been pursuing her and impressing her to minister to her generation. She remembered God saying, “Malachi, it is time for you to call your generation back to life… I’ve waited in your entire life for this moment.”
Even when she was so afraid, God granted her supernatural boldness.
“Around my senior year, I got this supernatural boldness. I knew it wasn’t my own doing. It was the Lord. And I really felt like He put a mantle on top of me that had supernatural boldness. I wasn’t scared to go out,” she recalled.
Teenagers Worshiped In A Parking Lot
Discouraged upon losing many of her friends was Malachi.
“I lost a lot of my friends. It was kind of discouraging. And I was like, “God, You placed this all inside of me; why do I feel like I’m in a losing game?” And He said to me, “Malachi, I’m walking with you. And that’s all you need.””
Since then, she has experienced how God opened better doors than the ones He closed.
“As I began to walk with Him, He began to bring people around me. And that’s when I feel like He gave me a gathering wherein I can bring teenagers together. He actually told me to start this ministry called “The Move.” A movement after God’s heart.”
Because of this movement, teenagers worshiped in a parking lot.
Young People Worshiped in a Parking Lot
“After we had a 3-hour service, apparently God wasn’t done because we were eating and all of a sudden, two of my worship leaders, one of whom was fourteen hops, were on the table and the whole restaurant was looking at us. And she just started singing. Immediately, we all ran outside the parking lot, and we had like a 2-hour-long just worship set. There was no preparation for it. It was just the joy of the Lord hitting my worship leaders, and we just went after it. You could see the people jumping up and down,” Malachi recalled.
Those teenagers were saved and shared their stories with others. Weeks later, those same people came back to Malachi and said, “You don’t understand the freedom I had when I was worshiping.” I truly think that worship is a prayer.””
God is an awesome God! As we continue to receive testimonies like this, may you witness revival firsthand and taste and see that the Lord is good!
