NYE Prophetic Service

To kick off 2024, Bethel Austin had the joy of hearing from trusted voices — friends and fathers — who released insight, encouragement, and declarations at our New Year’s Eve prophetic service.

We believe the best is yet to come for Bethel Austin, and we say “yes and amen” to a future and a hope full of God’s goodness over our house.

Click on the video above to watch the service featuring our friends, Dano McCollam and Bethany Hicks, as well as video appearances from Bill Johnson, Kris Vallotton, Brian and Candice Simmons, and Steve Backlund. We also invite you to review highlights from key prophetic words below, partner with declarations for 2024, and contend with us in prayer that the promises of God will be fulfilled on earth as it is in heaven!

“I am so impressed and so moved to watch God work among you. I’m glad for the impact you have had on Austin and the surrounding region. I’m really excited for what’s coming — the Lord has really set you up with favor.”

— Bill Johnson | Senior Leader, Bethel

“One of the phrases that kept coming in my spirit for over a month now concerning you is unprecedented harvest — unprecedented harvest. That is evangelism; that is a harvest of souls.”

Dano McCollam | Co-founder of Prophetic Company

Highlights from Dano’s word:

2 Chronicles 16:9 over the house

  • “The eyes of the Lord roam to and fro throughout the whole earth looking for those whose hearts are fully towards Him that he might show himself strong on their behalf.”
  • The Father is looking for divine partnership in 2024 — both in heaven and in the earth — with those who will partner with what is in His heart to see it released within the earth

Unprecedented harvest

  • Not the time to grow weary, even in those places where you have fished all night and not caught anything because the Lord’s grace is upon a season of unprecedented harvest

Gift of creative miracles in healing and multiplication

  • Creative miracles coming upon people to release divine purpose — a grace for creative miracles to happen in healing and in multiplication miracles
  • The kind of miracles where you see arms grow back, limbs grow back, fingers grow back, organs being restored within the body
  • Specialists raised up within this house that serves as a prototype for the restoration of the gift of creative miracles
  • Saw angels partnering with heaven to release gifts upon people that would be prototype gifts for the restoration of that gift within a larger body — within a larger community

Gift of wisdom

  • Saw the Lord dropping words of wisdom in the form of blueprints, diagrams, and formulas being released
  • Saw angels with bags full of blueprints with inventions and prototypes looking to partner with 2 Chronicles 16:9 hearts for redemption, reconciliation, hope, and the greatness of God
  • Deposits of divine wisdom to become a catalyst for prototype and reform


“I feel like 2024 is the year of new beginnings. It’s a year of second chances, it’s a year of failed businesses restarting, failed marriages returning. I just feel like that this is like the comeback-kid year… I feel like this is the year when the Lord would revisit failures and there will be restoration.”

— Kris Vallotton | Senior Associate Leader, Bethel

“You have learned to stir the waters — you have pursued it because you know who God is and you’ve contended for the ever-present One. And because of that, there is going to be an accelerated grace to enter encounter much easier, much quicker than before.”

— Bethany Hicks | Co-founder of Prophetic Company

Highlights from Bethany’s word:

Prophetic alignment is key

  • Prophecy is not just about seeing the future; it’s about seeing God’s future
  • Many people are prophesying first heaven future and second heaven future: what the enemy is going to do, what the enemy wants to do
  • There is a superior future looking for a landing place that starts in the third heaven and in the heart of the Father
  • Be careful what you come into agreement with

Season shift

  • During the 5-year anniversary, felt a shift that Bethel Austin has transitioned from its former season into not just a new year, but a new season that includes many years
  • Season of accelerated grace — the empowerment of the Holy Spirit
  • Favor and grace to go further and faster with easier and less effort

Five areas of accelerated grace over Bethel Austin

  • Family
  • Finances
  • Outreach
  • Worship
  • Encounter


“If difficult winds blow this coming year, don’t worry, my friend. Don’t yield to fear. You are made to soar in 2024… Thank you for bringing heaven to earth. You’re changing Austin and you’re changing the world. We love you.”

— Brian Simmons | Passion & Fire Ministries

“I believe the Lord is saying everything you do is going to be cloaked in the prophetic, and it’s going to draw more churches to you.”

— Candice Simmons | Passion & Fire Ministries

2024 Declarations

Declaration 1

We are strong and courageous — fearless sons and daughters advancing with the Lord on illuminated pathways of life that are full of His presence, His joy, and His pleasures forevermore. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. We will taste and see His goodness as we trust in Him, and we will rest in the blessing that His goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives.

Declaration 3

We are an anointed region where the Spirit of the Lord dwells — a region bursting with good news, people walking in freedom, blind eyes open, and mourners turned into dancers. We are a region that is arising, shining, and testifying about radical encounters with the glory of the Lord! Austin, you are a city on a hill — a beacon of love that beckons the prodigals to come home and find rest in the Father’s arms. Austin, you are a city of Holy Spirit-filled influencers — marketplace men and women who hold keys of wealth and solutions to build the Kingdom in dynamic, generational-sustaining ways. Austin, you are a city of united churches who strike the match of revival together to see a region consumed with heaven. Austin, you are an apostolic capital city lined with oaks of righteousness — a planting of the Lord to display His splendor so He may be glorified.

Luke 4:18-19, Psalm 30:11-12, Isaiah 60:1-3, Isaiah 61:3

Declaration 4

Bethel Austin, we are a presence-pursuing church excited about our future! We anticipate 2024 will be a year marked with a significant increase of miracles, signs, and wonders. We anticipate a storybook of testimonies pointing to the steadfast love of a Father who enjoys lavishing His children with heaven-on-earth goodness. We anticipate a year of glory encounters, supernatural provision, dunamis overflow, divine favor, scripture enrichment, angelic interactions, deeper equipping, holy hugs, and heart transformations. Bethel Austin, our best days are ahead! We step into 2024 with the Lord’s face shining and smiling upon us. We step into 2024 clothed in praise guided by the One who leads us in the everlasting way.

Hebrews 2:4, Numbers 6:24-26, Isaiah 61:3, Psalm 139:24

“I’m hearing this that as you dedicate passions and hobbies and things to the Lord, there’s going to be partnerships with other people within Bethel Austin and beyond…  I see a coming together of passions and hobbies, and groups being formed where those groups are going to infiltrate different aspects of society and make a huge difference.”
