"Welcome back. Talking to pastor Mike Signorelli in New York. Mike, you're telling the story and I love stories like this. You know, this is a miracle Monday story. It's Monday. It's appropriate. You're not making this up. It's obvious. You're not making this up. You read the Bible three times through. You're a kid. You're 15 years old. Something happens to you. You have this experience with God. Next thing, you know, some woman is saying, I had a dream about you that you're going to preach in my church. I mean, this, these kinds of things happen. Folks, these kinds of things have happened to me and to people that I know they might not happen every day. And there are crazy people who make stuff up and, you know, whatever and exaggerate, but we're not talking about that. We're talking about stuff that actually happens and is evidence for who God is. So you said, Mike, that, so here you are, you're a kid and you're the pastor of the church that your mother's bringing you to tells you what? Yeah. Well, you know, and again, my goal wasn't weird, supernatural experiences, you know? And, and I think there's a lot of people that that's their goal. My goal was I'm fatherless. I want to come to know Jesus Christ. I see something in scripture and then, you know, the supernatural accompanied that. So anyways, this woman she's very persistent. My pastor finds out because she's showing up after service to come and bother me and, and, and repeatedly asked me, I get pulled into the pastor's office and he's trying to resolve it, you know? So he just tells this woman, you know, Hey, you don't know him. This guy, shy is introverted. And then, and then he looks at me and just says, tell this woman, you can't do it. There was something about that phrase. I kind of had like a Marty McFly moment. It like enraged me. And I had never experienced that feeling before. I believe it was like a righteous indignation. And all of a sudden I just said, I'll do it. And it was like, she was shocked. My pastor was shocked. My mom was shocked. So anyways, that was my first preaching assignment at 15. This woman solicited her pastor said, let's do a special event on a Sunday night. God had approved. And I showed up to this little church in South Chicago and preached for the first time at 15. And true to that woman's word, the young people accepted Christ and something just majorly shifted. And I, I felt like I was having an out of body experience. I couldn't even, but what was happening was the Holy Spirit was activating all of the, the scripture that I had read for the years leading in. And, you know, it went from information to, to impartation. And so that's kind of how I started ministry. It's a very weird story. Um, but it's anchored me all these years and reminded me that, uh, I didn't choose him. He chose me. So you, so you don't have some dramatic period of backsliding or drifting away. Cause oftentimes you hear people have this amazing experience with God and then there's this journey and whatever, and then finally they come back or whatever. I mean, you know, it's, it's, uh, it is what it is, uh, to, to, to repeat a cliche, but in, in your case, you've been in ministry consistently since then. I had a brief season and, uh, it's a part of my testimony, you know, I ended up going to Indiana university and, uh, I didn't even have a vision for full-time ministry. I didn't, again, I was raised in a very impoverished region. I never even saw a full-time pastor. All of them were by vocational. So I, I just, that's how small my world was, had never been on vacation my entire life. Uh, I had never seen anything outside of that region. And so eventually I become the first college student on both sides of my family. And I had that professor, the biology professor who said, I'm going to use this class to convince you God doesn't exist. And so I had about 18 months to two year journey of, uh, kind of, I guess what I would consider like an agnostic season. What was crazy though, is my junior year of college, while I'm struggling through all these questions, cause I experienced this supernatural. I had read the Bible for myself, but I didn't understand theology. I didn't understand apologetics. I say this in air quotes. I randomly moved into a house with an Ivy league educated theologian and didn't know it. And so I was telling this guy one day, this story that I just told all of your listeners and he's like, okay, so you're not really a Christian now or what's going on? I said, yeah, I'm struggling. I mean, I got exposed to all these atheistic thoughts in this biology class and I'm, and now I'm in academia, first-generation and maybe just ignorant people believe in God and, you know, higher educated people don't. And so basically over the course of that year, he just systematically destroys every single argument that I have against God. And it was cool because it was almost like God was marrying together the, the intellectual with the spiritual and supernatural. You understand the irony when you say Ivy league, I'm expecting anybody in any kind of Ivy league theological situation is pretty much a liberal agnostic. They don't believe in any of this stuff that you and I believe in. So it's kind of amazing that you happen to find one of these rare Ivy league theologians who actually believes in the God of the scripture and in the scripture.

"Hey folks, we get to talk to somebody today who's a New Yorker. Now I thought that I knew all of the Jesus freaks in the greater New York area but it turns out that there's a couple that somehow I've missed. I don't know how that happened but one of them is a pastor, Mike Signorelli. He's the head of V1 Church and I'm just thrilled to have you on. Mike, welcome. Hey, it's so exciting to be here. We're gonna have a great conversation. Listen, I'm always amazed when I discovered you and I just thought this is good news that New York, people think of New York as so secular. Well, the fact is that there are a lot of churches and a lot of things going on in the greater New York area and you're a big part of that. So, tell my audience, first of all, tell me in my audience where is V1 Church and then how did you come to faith? I want to hear your story. Yeah, absolutely. Well, listen, wherever you see a high concentration of the prophets of Baal, you're going to see an Elijah trying to call down fire from heaven. So, New York definitely needs it but we're based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, although we have campuses nationwide. So, I live in the city. That's where I'm holding it down. That's my post. I jokingly said they're going to bury me there. I'm not backing down. But I mean, it's amazing to me that when I realized that we have friends in common and you came to my attention because the film that's coming out in October called The Domino Revival. I want to talk about that but I want to get your story. How did you come to faith? Where do you grow up? Because I care about that and I want my audience to hear it. Yeah, absolutely. Well, another former New Yorker, David Wilkerson, as you may know from Times Square Church, we were actually born in the same hospital in Hammond, Indiana. So, I'm originally a Hoosier. I jokingly tell people I'm half hillbilly, half city slicker. Wait a minute. You're telling me David Wilkerson was born in Indiana? Yeah, yeah. You can fact check me on Wikipedia. Because David Wilkerson, I met my wife at Times Square Church under the ministry of David Wilkerson in the 90s. His brother Don married Suzanne and me. I have preached at Times Square Church a number of times and it is the one place I think of as my spiritual roots, Times Square Church and David Wilkerson. So, that's just very interesting to me that you were born in the same hospital as the great prophetic David Wilkerson. Yeah, well, you know, we share a lot of spiritual DNA then because I gleaned from his life and living in Northwest Indiana growing up, I heard a lot of stories about this guy who, you know, went to New York City and, you know, the whole cross and the switchblade and that type of thing. But for me, you know, my mother was a victim of domestic violence. Unfortunately, my dad was abusive because of infidelity. They eventually got divorced and then he committed manslaughter and went to prison. And so, I was the product of multiple, you know, abusive stepdads, just extreme poverty in South Chicago, Northwest Indiana, and quite frankly, didn't want that much to do with God. My mother had a salvation experience and as a result, all took us to church growing up, but I didn't really react to any of it. But, and this is, you know, the 80s and 90s, I did fall in love with scripture and, you know, this is pre-internet era. And so, between Encyclopedia Britannica and the Bible, I was just consuming information. And so, I had gotten cover to cover from Genesis to Revelation about three times. And by the time I was 15 years old, I think just being a teenager, I started to see the narratives differently. And I got to Acts 2, where, you know, you have the ascension of Christ and then the Holy Spirit comes to now dwell inside of believers. And then Peter gets up and preaches this message boldly and thousands are added to the kingdom. I remember reading that and I was almost mad. I'm like, I'm kind of reading it like a drama, right? And I'm like, Peter's an idiot. It's just, why does he get this opportunity? And why would God use, you know, he denies Christ three times. He's constantly getting corrected by Jesus. And then all of a sudden I have this epiphany, oh, that's what the gospel is all about. So I, you know, it's about God using the least likely. It's about God, you know, basically using the fullest things of the world that confound the wise. So at 15 years old, I sat on the edge of my bed and I said, God, you know, I'm extremely introverted. I'm shy. I've been through a lot of trauma and abuse, but if you could use me like you use Peter, do it. And I basically had a personal Pentecost in my room. So that's my origin story. That's, I mean, listen, you know, you're not saying it, but it's obvious. You're outrageously gifted that you would be reading the Bible and comprehending it as a young teenager. That's crazy. So it's extraordinary that that happened. And it's extraordinary that you had the ability at that young age to ask God into your heart to use you or whatever. I mean, that is amazing. Now, was that like a visceral experience? Did you have any, you know, manifestations of the presence of God or was it just a moment that changed your life in a different way? Well, yeah, it was a supernatural experience. And I know some listeners may be wrestling with that, but for me, you know, you got to understand, you know, if every encounter you had with a dog, you got bit by a dog, you would never want to be by dogs. So for me, every encounter I had as a kid with adults was some kind of traumatic, abusive, you know, thing. And so I, as a result, I was just very shy, very timid, very introverted. And, and so for me, it was just so unique thing because I, I saw Peter operating in this boldness and I'm like, but he was so afraid of that little girl. I think that's what attracted me to it was like, wow, this was a transformational experience for him. So for me, I was a simple prayer. I say it was the most dangerous prayer that I've ever prayed in my life because it was a prayer of full surrender. You know, 99% obedience is actually 100% disobedience in the kingdom. When you read the gospel narratives, Jesus is calling people to 100% surrender. I think for me, it was like, that was that moment where I'm like, a hundred percent surrender, God, whatever you want to do, do it. And, uh, like I said, I was a personal Pentecost. I, you know, again, I know everybody has a different, uh, theological perspective. I started to speak in tongues, uh, in, uh, other languages, what it was just like the Holy Spirit, right there. I mean, it was like, that's what I mean. I think let's, let's, let's be logical about this. Okay. I speak in tongues and I, and I know that's all from God, but if you don't, how do you explain a 15 year old in his room experiencing this, uh, it's not being brainwashed. You're alone. You're asking God to, because I hear these kinds of stories. Uh, so it, to me, it's evidence for the truth of this, you know, even if you're not sure what you make of it, but so, okay. You're so young at that point, what happens after that? I mean, where, where do you, did you know you wanted to go into ministry at that age? Yeah. The story gets weirder and partly we've featured this in the film and, you know, I've got some third-party perspectives to verify some of this stuff as well, but yeah, I mean, like you said, there was no band playing behind me in my bedroom, uh, you know, manipulating my emotions. There's no keyboard player. Nobody coached me through how to speak in tongues. And, you know, I didn't have like a cliche Pentecostal experience. I mean, it was, it was, here's the other thing. My mom heard it and, um, she tells a story in the film as well. And again, nobody expected it just because of really the Holy spirit destroyed this whole persona I built up. Cause I built up this persona of like, I'm the first person to walk out of a room and all that. And he really destroyed that, that identity and I became a new creation. And so, yeah, like you said, it wasn't psychosomatic. It wasn't placebo wasn't emotional, emotional contagion. It was, it was a supernatural experience. So then after that, uh, I tried to keep it on the down-low. It was like my golf, 15 years old. Like, I don't know what this was. I don't even know if I liked it. Um, but then it was a couple of weeks later. I was walking out of my church, um, my local church in South Chicago, and this woman was walking down the street. And she saw me, she took a, she did like a double take and she was like, I I've never met you before in my life, but I had a dream about you that you preached at my church and revival broke out. And I was terrified. A matter of fact, my exact words to her were woman, you're crazy, leave me alone. Uh, as you know, there's a lot of crazy people on the South side of Chicago. So my initial response was like, this woman's out of her mind. Um, but what I've come to learn over all these years of now being a ministry is that whatever happens privately, you know, it really manifests publicly. So I had this private experience with God through the Holy Spirit and publicly, God was calling my number. And so this woman, and I'm eternally indebted to her because she was so persistent. Uh, as a matter of fact, I, I would do anything to be joined together with her. Again, I haven't seen her in over two decades, but she, every week she would find me after service was over and, uh, asked me to, to preach at her church again. And, uh, I would tell her, leave me alone. And then my mom got involved and was like, what's this woman doing? I'm like, mom, she said, she had this dream. I preached at her church. She won't leave me alone. So the pastor of my church called me into his office after one Sunday and basically said, Hey, you know, Mike, we know who you are around here. Like, this is not you, you're not a preacher. Uh, will you just tell this woman that you won't do it? You can't do it. Hold on. This is called a cliffhanger in show business. Folks. Don't go away. Be right back. I'm talking to pastor Mike Signorelli from New York.

"It to your house, home castle and cabin this morning. Appreciate you tuning in. We're here with Mr South Chicago, owner of Done Right window and doors, Rosie certified window and door replacement specialists who we For the homeowner on that kitchen window, and I want to reset the stage just a little bit for anybody Just tuned in, Uh, a nice home out on in the north part of the valley. It looked out to the West across the golf course. Very nice home. Very nice Western view, Luscious desert and green and the kitchen window. Looked out onto that West facing patio and as many people like to do and use a setting like that for entertainment. I imagine the homeowner for that reason wanted that opening to be much bigger. Than just the 30 year. 36 inches is she was getting with the sliding unit. So how did you go about engineering? What you solve their I thought that was pretty creative. Well, each and every Product and or homeowner is looking for some. I'm sorry. Each and every homeowner is looking for something different, and for that specific opening, she wanted to have a large pass through. She's going to be putting a countertop on the exterior. She wants to slide. You know whatever out and have her order gives out there. So in having a large opening. We actually wanted to incorporate that commercial product and tie into the rest of her house of what we have installed earlier. We designed. Basically, it's a door with the minimal amount of frames. You have about two inches of frame around each glass edge and the door can open outward. The locking mechanisms were taken off of the design of the bi folding doors, which works perfect for a window, Romy, you were able to utilize those and see how that worked. And basically, it just allowed you to have a push out Casement style window. With no obstructions at all. And the limitations of the sizing is pretty large that one there was six ft by seven FT. Of what that opening was. It looked good and then you take the window sill. And remove it or never have it installed and you replace it with a door threshold. Um, reverse on that so we could pass straight through. I loved that. Correct. So we utilized a window frame on the bottom instead of a door sill. Okay, so it was essentially an entire window is what it was. So it started as a door. We just utilize some parts as a door brought it into a window configuration, and now you can't even it's an absolute amazing looking window is what it is. You bring your solid surface countertop up to the in and outside of that frame edge. And your little just sliding platters across the countertop. Did we bring that one flush? I'm not sure if we brought that one for I think I caught it flush. I I know we had a bottom still on it, so I don't know if there was a lip or we brought it flush. Any of it is doable again. Whatever the homeowners looking for And what she's really looking for, and what she was really looking for was Keeping wet feet from the pool coming into our kitchen. Er, wait, I'm lost. Now. We're still time out the window, aren't we? Right? So with the pass through, you can put anything. There you go. I got out to the patio to keep them from coming into her kitchen. That's what she was looking for. I'm sure maybe it might work Couple summers with kids in the pool. You you, you know You just put the lemonade right out there and keep the kids out. There you go. Now in that frame were those all thermally broke. Yes, I do believe that that was a thermally broken product and the thermally broken product just for who? You know. Whoever doesn't know is where you separate the exterior aluminum by the interior aluminum by a piece of non conductive material. It doesn't allow that heat to transfer through, so it doesn't allow the window frame to become An interior heat. Radiator correct greatly increases the efficiency of the window itself. And then how about just the weather sealing? Properties, the air tightness, the dust elimination. Well, so it depends on what you're comparing it to your older standard aluminum windows, where you would have all the dust on your window sill. You'll have somebody slammed the door and you'll help here your window rattle or you can hear the wind actually whistling through your window. Those are going to be letting in so much dust. The new product today whether it's the commercial aluminum, um, a any product. Besides, your standard aluminum product will have a significant difference in air filtration, sound and dust. So we could do so much more with doors and windows in today's generation of products. So I want you all to be careful in going out and just selecting what might be on sale someplace and decided you're going to install this. That may not be the smartest dollar investment for the improvement of your home's equity as well as your lifestyle at the home. There's gonna be some very significant implications as it relates to energy efficiency. Noise transmission moisture elimination. You certainly don't want to put in a new window where you VCI lost the integrity of your vapor barrier and Go ahead. Oh, that was a commercial. It is it is, so there's actually a lot of design aspect to it. Measuring you definitely don't want to just purchase the window and then go out and look.

I mean, for all the stupid license is that I have to have to be able to do this job from one of the biggest one is is it's money laundering? They're always worried about me. And I have to take exams upon exams and like Bitcoin is gonna be the easiest way to launder money. So until you know once this does finally become mainstream, the government's gonna move into that space. It's over in my mind. I I understand the allure. But at the same time once it does become like you said mainstream. The government's gonna want to tax it right.
