The Artist


 Hello and welcome to Raised Praise Banners.

Several years ago I began creating church banners/praise flags for our children and youth in my Church. In my heart, I knew that using banners were a beautiful way to express our worship to God, but they also needed to be edifying to the body of Christ, not just oneself. I realized that there needed to be more understanding, clarity in banner ministry; so I began a journey that has ultimately led me to fashion a series of banner type flags that I believe has been inspired by the Spirit of the Lord and will edify, (clear a path) for the WHOLE body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 14:24) My heart is to clear obstructed places and bring understanding and clarity, clearing the atmosphere preparing the WORD: His majesty to come FORTH in light, life bringing "All Things Become NEW here to the earth".

 banner ministry. I believe I have been inspired by the Spirit of God to fashion a set of "banner" type flags that are pure in nature and have a unique sense of responsibility for the bearer.

Ministry Tools

For those that don't understand the banner ministry (creating banners or using them) I want to clear something up. First, The reason why I make banners and sell them is because I want to equip Worshipers. God has called me to do that. I create tools for him. These are tools of worship to build up the body of Christ. God has prepared a door for you to go and Hoe the ground for the gospel. We all have an assignment in different places and lands. Banners prepare the ground for entrance. Worship is a Door.

The Door carries you into the inner courts where things are created and lives are changed and continents are transformed. The banners/flags are tools of worship that take you to that place by reason of worship. I can't always go to a particular place, but you can go for me!!! It's a call you hear and respond too. You get the banner then you Go! Hoe the ground preparing it for entrance. I look at it the same as if I gave a person in ministry funds to go to Asia or Africa or South America. I might not can physically go myself, but you can go for me. His Spirit works in me to enable you to prepare a Door.

It's important to note that what God is sharing with me are not products or merchandise, but they are ministry tools set in order by God and created to work in the Kingdom of God for his Glory. I do not sell banners/flags for my profit, but for his Glory and gain. If you are receiving a banner or flag from this site, you are receiving a ministry tool from the heaven and not from my hand.

A Letter From Charlotte

"I remember fondly the years I went with my mom to fabric stores. She would spend hours at a time in one store looking at textures and designs. My mother loved making clothes for us. She made sure we matched each Sunday for Church. One memory juts out to me still: I'll never forget playing underneath endless yards of fabric as my mother made her final selections. I lost my mother to cancer in my late 20s, but what I cherish, are the fond memories of her sitting at her machine, sewing clothes, doing what she loved.

A Letter From Charlotte

To this day, I am humbled by the role my mother played in my life. It wasn't until many years later that I began working with fabrics myself and found my joy in working with them too. Textile design has given me a chance to release my  abilities and talents like nothing else. I am thankful for my mother's inspiration in my life, as she loved being creative and releasing creative light to the world - those she touched.

For me, textile design is taking the lightest fabric possible and creating unique, usable designs that encourage and enlighten the heart. I am always looking for better ways to transform fabrics into something no one has seen before."

"O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory. Because you're loving kindness is better than life. My lips shall praise you. Thus, I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hand in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips."

A Word From Charlotte

God pulling a new generation of lovers to the front. You won't recognize these. They are those that have walked alone and secluded, held back for a time to be revealed. These saints and "ones to come" have not been caught up in running with or in groupies, "click" Christianity - jaded by routines of what they know how to do, but these are coming in from behind, on the back rows of life, waiting for God's perfect timing to be released. You won't recognize these, you wouldn't expect these. If you have held back because you feel God can only use folks that have it "all together", get ready!! Cause God is wanting to push some new babes out on the front lines!
