Arleen Westerhof is the co-Senior Pastor of the God’s Embassy Church in Amsterdam, together with her husband Dick, She has a Ph.D. in Chemistry and originally came to the Netherlands to work as a Research Scientist at a large multinational corporation. After several years of chemical research and teaching God called her into full-time ministry.

Arleen is the Founder and Facilitator of the Netherlands Prophetic Council,, where she trains and raises up national level prophets. She is also an advisor to the Coalition for Apostolic Reformation, CAR. Arleen has a passion to help raise up those with the wisdom of Joseph and Daniel (from the Bible) to be change agents by bringing divinely-inspired solutions to bear on the problems our societies are facing.

Arlene is also Founder and Executive Director of the European Economic Summit and she’s a friend of City Vision. She recently visited our base in Yorkshire to spend time with the City Vision team but also members of staff of AHC, the company established by City Vision founder Tony Hodges.

Arlene’s gift of prophecy flowed dramatically across the day spent with the team as she imparted specific and individual prophetic inputs to team members as well as powerful words of encouragement, challenge and vision for City Vision to expand and grow. Her input even resulted in one member of staff at AHC giving their life to Jesus.

We have been greatly encouraged by Arlene’s visit and the legacy it leaves, with the sense that God will start to position us in ways that can leverage city transformation with a domino effect:

A domino can knock over another domino about 1.5x larger than itself. A chain of dominos of increasing size makes a kind of mechanical chain reaction that starts with a tiny push and knocks down an impressively large domino. Original idea by Lorne Whitehead, American Journal of Physics, Vol.
