The ministry is located in Stafford, Texas. In 1988, Roy and Carlos Bounds started HOPE Ministries "Helping Oppressed People Escape" in their home where thousands of people were saved, delivered, filled with the Holy Spirit, and set free to fulfill their destiny. They answered the pastoral call in 1998 and begun the work Tabernacle on Fire in 2003. They worked as a team preaching and ministering the word of God with simplicity, power, and authority under the guidance and anointing of the Holy Spirit. In March 2013, they were commissioned as apostles by their spiritual father, Apostle Chuck Pierce.
They are the founders of Kingdom Builders Apostolic Training Center which is the home of TOF. They also founded Kingdom Builders Bible College in 2008. This is not an ordinary bible college. It's emphasis is on training in the supernatural. It also offers degree plans in biblical studies.
The native Houstonians were married over thirty years and the proud parents of seven children and nine grandchildren until Apostle Roy went to be with the Lord.
Apostle Carlos remains an example of God in the earth, while demonstrating His power by the Spirit of God, the unseen that's yet so powerful.
The mandate is to occupy and restore Yah's covenant plan in the Kingdom where the new wine skin is skilfull in doing the greater works of Yahushua that manifest the power of God through demonstration of the Spirit.
To bring Yah's covenant people back to Him with an understanding of their true identity - Hebrew Israelites.
To gather and raise up the remnant of the Most High.
To train the remnant, equip and birth the mighty army that will advance the kingdom.
To train sons and daughters to be fruit-producers that release generational blessings so the Glory of the King is seen.
Helping oppressed people escape through the ministry of the Messiah while teaching the good news of the Kingdom that brings deliverance, freedom for the captives free, healing to the sick and in-filling of the Holy Spirit to those once held captive.
To bring Yah's people to have an encounter with Him that shifts their mind to a Kingdom mindset, pour out revelation that releases understanding and activates the principles that rule and govern the Kingdom.
By speaking to their potential and purpose, it brings the people of the Most High God to walk in their God given authority while making disciples and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, all by the demonstration of the Spirit of the Almighty God; the unseen that is yet so powerful.
