NBISC was incorporated in April 2019 after several years of growing involvement with Dr. Lori Basey and her team at NBI Oklahoma City, the original ministry. NBISC president Acton Beard’s DNA has always been to restore individuals to their original design and God-given identity and then help them discover their God-ordained destiny. When her daughter, Charlotte Freiberg became involved with NBI OKC, Acton was drawn to all aspects of the ministry with a supernatural interest and energy.
Several prophecies were spoken about the ministry from Jacksonville to D.C. as a site for NBI to develop and grow. Over the past three years, Lori and her team have led several retreats and spoken at Pawleys Island area churches, stirring hearts with the most powerful exhortation to love like Jesus. Her questions: ”If not us, then who? if not now, then when? if not here, then where?” have been life-changing for many in the area and following the last retreat in March of 2019, the decision was made to go for it. In September 2019, a group of eight women from the Pawleys Island area traveled to Oklahoma City for a week of NBI outreach, teaching, worship, and community. On our return, we hit the ground running, more determined than ever to be
world-changers for Jesus as He leads us!
