John Stewart Hill led a group of 179 Christians to sign a new Christian Compact on November 11 at 11:11 AM, at the site of the landing of the Pilgrims voyage upon the Mayflower, after having an army of Shofars usher in the movement with his group “Trumpet’s Arise”.
They were inspired by the Mayflower Compact from 1620 which contained the words, “Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith and honor of our king & country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia. ~ William Bradford, Mayflower Compact
“We signed a new promise that we would do everything for the Glory of God and walk in our Christian faith. That we were recommitting our Christian walk right there, we pledged that to each other,” Hill told me. “An important message from that day which we agreed on was that there is no King but Jesus.”

Hill said he was letting the event come together on it’s own and about 300 people attended just to mark the occasion with him.
“I was reminded of why my forefathers were that at that very spot 400 years ago, and that was to talk about the Bible. They were escaping a period of hardship. I had a lot of things on my mind on the morning of the event. I woke up at 4 AM and thought about the places in the Bible where there were other references to 400 years. There was a period of 400 years of captivity and a period of 400 years of silence, where God did not talk to his prophets. I thought of the two other times in the Bible where people crossed the water with Moses leading the slaves thru the Red Sea, which he parted and where Joshua and Caleb broke the water with their feet on the Jordan River, those were both a crossing over of the water. These thoughts led me to see that Christianity is moving from one person, like Moses leading, to more relational experience like Joshua and Caleb, that is what we need more relationships. New people will be leading other people to unity with many different kinds of Americans, and it will be led by people who are not well-known pastors, but regular people, like people we had in the book of Acts,” Hill told me.
Hill wrote on his Facebook page on 11.11 4 AM:
“We will not keep God confined to a Big BOX, it’s time to advance! Not all will be Joshua and Caleb, but for those that choose the Lord as King and put His Kingdom above their own, they will see the hand of God move through them like they never imagined, through the New Wineskin. They will be the “trumpet” of the Lord and move the NEW SOUND through this land. Proclaiming the 4 sounds that the shofar represents…Worship (acknowledgement of God as sovereign in their lives), Repentance, Warfare, and Healing. Lord, I pray, indwell and empower your people to advance the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN! Amen!”
Christians gather to blow shofars and honor 400 years of Christianity in America:
“All of this led me to see that the future of the Home Church movement is going to look like Thanksgiving every day. It is led by us and it is family coming together every week, and breaking bread. It is a new awakening. We are going to crossover, and we are going to come together in unity, we are about to see ecclesia. We are going to take Jesus to the streets and be there for each other.
At the event, we all ushered in the 3rd Great awakening with a group of about 100 shofars. We celebrated Worship, Repentance, Warfare and Healing. We know that our country is under attack, and we do believe there will be a great humiliation for people who are fighting Christianity, like a great humiliation in Colossians 2:15,” Hill said.
The event was a celebration of 400 years of Christianity in America and also meant to mark the occasion that Hill first visited the site of his ancestor’s greatest acts leaps of faith.
Hill is a direct descendant of William Bradford, governor of the Plymouth colony for 30 years, who helped shape and stabilize the political institutions of the first permanent colony in New England. Bradford also left an invaluable journal chronicling the Pilgrim venture, of which he was a part. Hill is also a descendent of Myles Standish, an English military officer hired by the Pilgrims as military adviser for Plymouth Colony. He accompanied them on the Mayflower journey and played a leading role in the administration and defense of Plymouth Colony from its inception, and of John Alden, as a crew member on the historic 1620 voyage of the Mayflower which brought the English settlers commonly known as Pilgrims to Plymouth Colony in present-day Massachusetts. He was hired in Southampton, England, as the ship’s cooper, responsible for maintaining the ship’s barrels.
“The event was a part of Hill’s mission to bring in armies of Shofars to build Christian and Messianic Jewish connections, to talk about a new movement of House Churches, which is very passionate about, saying that House Church movement is going to be the “the new church of Acts,” Hill told me.
“There are millions of house churches around the world, and in China they have home churches under penalty of death,” Hill said. “That is pretty amazing,” he said.
Jubileecost.com said about the Hills House Church movement, “John Stewart Hill, CEO of Central Storehouse, the creator of the site, shares, Now, more than ever, people are looking for a more personal, more connected church experience. The House Church movement is growing in part because it is impossible to attend a house church and be anonymous. With all the unrest in the world, people are looking for safe places where they can worship God, find encouragement and accountability, discover their purpose in the body of Christ, and be challenged in their faith. House churches can be the answer.”
